Maytag DG610 (Old Model) Won't Hold Flame

2 posts in this topic

Regarding a Maytag DG610 gas drier, can you provde some assistance please?


1, Start-up

2, Ignitor glows

3, Gas jet ignites

4, Runs fine for about 30 seconds then flame goes out

5, In about another 30 seconds the Ignitor glows

6, After about 15 seconds it goes out.

Repeat 5 and 6.

There are three coils on the gas valve assembly.

Two of the coils are in parallel with the Ignitor so they only see power when the Ignitor is lit

The other coil gets power all the time

I wish I had a schematic.

what is the gizmo that sits to the side of the flame?

Ideas as to cause of problem?

Thank you,

David Copestakes

Replace all three coils on the gas valve, they have gotten weak and cannot open the gas valve after they have gotten hot...
