Frigidaire Gas Dryer - heating problem
Posted 07 August 2005 - 05:09 PM
My Frigidaire gas dryer (~2 years old) has stopped heating. After reading the troubleshooting guides, here is what happens:
The igniter glows - I can hear a whooshing sound as the gas lights, and I can see the flame burning and the dryer starts heating (It only does this on High heat). After about 2 minutes, the flame goes away and the dryer happily runs along until the end of the cycle with no heat.
From what I have read on these forums, I am suspecting a bad coil and should replace it - Does this sound appropriate for what I am experiencing? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Will update as soon as I receive the new parts and try the dryer out - thanks for the help!!

Replacement of the coils solved the problem w/ the dryer not heating for more than 2 minutes, but now the dryer ONLY heats when the selector is set for high heat. Would that be a control panel issue?
Even w/ the electrical drawings, I am not sure how to troubleshoot this problem - please let me know if anyone has a clue.
