This one's confusing. The drum spins, no heat. Press the start button with the front cover off and the igniter doesn't glow. The solenoids click, gas appears to start for only a split-second, then appears to close due to no flame.

I've confirmed continuity and voltage with multimeter at the igniter, coils, hi-limit thermostat, radiant sensor, cycling thermostat, ulta-care thermostat, temp switch, option switch, timer, timer motor, cycle signal and electronic dry control.

I used a jumper at the thermostats, the radiant sensor, temp switch and timer motor using the wiring diagram taped to the back of the unit too without success.

What the heck am I missing? Thanks!

Joe

Correct. The igniter does not glow. It's new too (I replaced before testing, thinking it was bad).

Something's not making sense in what you're reporting. You say you have 120vac at the ignitor but the ignitor doesn't glow. That's a bad ignitor... unless you made an error somewhere and weren't really measuring 120vac at the ignitor when you thought you were. Double check that for us, budrow.

OK, thanks. The voltage reads about 18.2. Meter set to voltage-200. It is not registering 125 like the blue and black wires on the temp switch.
