Flame sensor no continuity

01 August 2013 - 12:08 PM

I have a Hotpoint gas dryer Model DLL2880 from 1979 which suddenly stopped firing up. I found the flame sensor with no continuity. Replace it with a new one, but still no flame, and checked continuity - also open on the new one. (I didn't check it before installing it - won't do that again.) Is there another element which would cause the new one to burn out or was it most likely defective when I installed it?  Thanks!


Gas Dryer pilot supply tube

17 July 2013 - 10:26 AM

Hello,  I have a Speed Queen Dryer Model # 147F from about 1971 which had been working well until the white metal supply tube to the pilot began to leak where it was corroded. It looks like 1/8" with a compression fitting on each end. Is there a replacement part ???  I can't seem to find it. It looks like a length of maybe 30" of tubing was coiled inside the burner compartment and the ends were bent to make the connections. I'd love to get this dryer going again.

 

Thanks very much!


Gas Dryer Pilot Tube

28 May 2013 - 04:42 PM

Hello,

 

I am looking at a Speed Queen Gas Dryer from about 1971? Model # 147F? or could be 142F or 14ZF - too corroded to read.

 

The dryer has been working fine but now is leaking gas from the small tubing to the pilot. The tubing appears to be 1/8"  with compression nuts and sleeves at both ends. Parts lookup showed "Burner, Pilot " Not Available, although the picture looked different on one end.

 

Can I get some 1/8" copper tubing with nuts/sleeves and bend it to follow the old route? Any suggestions where to get this? Easy to find 50' online - would the 1/8" copper for oil lines be adequate?

 

Thank you!
