Good morning. Was there heat before the fan was replaced or did it stop heating before replacing the fan ?

Heat was working but there was grinding noise we took apart thinking it was something stuck in the machinery but discovered the broken blower fan which we replaced we have since replaced with maytag part works but no heat

okay do you know if the igniter is comming on ? do you still have the front panel off ?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
the unit is in another part of the site and not aware of a front panel as it is a front loader however we will take back cover off to check the igniter
Expert:  Bryan replied 5 years ago.

check for 120 volts to the igniter if you get 120 volts but the igniter doesn't glow replace the igniter. you can also test continuity on the igniter by following the video in the link below.
