Fire shooting out of GE gas dryer
Posted 27 June 2005 - 12:29 PM
- Attempted to start dryer
- Heard poof or popping sound and breaker tripped
- Reset breaker and tried again
- This time flames shot out of top and bottom of dryer
At this point I backed off...shut off the gas to the dryer and will be cleaning out lint. I also tried the dryer on 'puff' cycle i believe [no gas] and the motor worked fine.
From my 0 knowledge of these things ether the ignitor is bad ? Lint catching on fire ? gas leak ?
Any ideas or help. I am going to try again without the vent attached and give it a good vaccum.
Should I not bother ?
