I have a 80 Series Kenmore Gas Dryer, Model 110.72812101. Runs, but no heat. I replaced the thermal fuse but that was not it. How can I check the igniter and or gas coils? Help, the wife wants dry clothes!
Hi, this is Bryan, take a look at this diagram, part # 12 is a cap on the front left side of the machine remove this cap and start the machine, look thru the hole and tell me if you see the igniter glow. let me know ,thanks Bryan
Thanks, Bryan - I'm going to see if I can find the coils locally so I can get the thing up and running. Sears Parts store said 7 to 10 days special order. I have some other local suppliers that may be able to help.
Another question - does the igniter stay lit the whole time or just to fire the gas flame and then it shuts down? What does the radiant sensor do? Could there be anything wrong with the radiant sensor?
ok the igniter goes off after it lights and the radiant sensor senses the flame once its lit the igniter stays off until it needs to relight again, the sensor is working correctly and the igniter is working correctly, I'm 90 % suer you need to change the coils, this is the most common reason for you problem. thanks, regards, Bryan
