HE3 DRYER MODEL 11092832100 NO HEAT

6 posts in this topic

I am repairing an he3 dryer with no heat.

 

It had a mini fire from lint build up near the ignitor.

 

Heres the thing..... ignitor won't energize.

 

thermal fuse is good

high limit is good

ignitor is good

coils are good

radiant sensor is good

 

thirmistor is at 12k ohms at about 75 degrees Fahrenheit  I was thinking this might be off? 

 

main board??

Do not have a wire diagram, but do you have 120 v.  to the ignitor??? follow the path of lost power.............I would look at your Main control board.....P/N 8546219..........Does  this power the ignitor?????

Test the Thermistor at a range of heat and then check ohms. Also, since fire was near ignitor, recheck it. I've had hairline cracks in these that test good with ohmmeter, yet with a "wiggle" they will test bad. Also, wiring has to be a factor in any burn out.

no Error Codes ?

 

with the Dryer running a normal heat cycle,

measure for 120v AC from each side of the white Thermal Fuse to chassis, ground

It would enlightening to your Brethren in The Craft to know the process by which you determined that the board was bad.  Please do tell!
