Ok, I'd like to verify what's happening. I start the dryer cold (I have the back panel off) and I can see a glow, then the gas fires. After about 7-10 mins, the gas goes off and does not come back on until the dryer has been turned off for about 15 mins. If I turn it on before that then, I can see the glow again, but no gas fire.
hi that what you just explained is exactly the fire up sequence thats how it works ,but if the coils gets hot it will shut down and after it cools it should fire up again but doesnt the glow bar just lights up
