Thanks for the inquiry about your dryer not heating. I will be happy to assist.

I think you are on the right track, if the igniter is not coming on and you have isolated it to test with no continuity it appears to be open so it won�t lite. Be sure you are isolating any part when testing for continuity, and put probes on harness, always disconnect power supply before servicing appliance. Based on your description of what you have done to this point it sounds like you have found the problem. The igniter part number is 5303937186 and I have attached a link for Sears Parts Direct for ordering/pricing. Should you need additional information please respond with details. Sears PartsDirect

Thanks Ron H.

Q:

GLOW BAR IGNITER FAILED

A:

The glow bar not working after two months can be very aggravating. I did do some research and was not able to find an answer. I would like to suggest adding your model number to better assist your expert. It may take 24-48 hours for your expert to answer your question. I do hope all goes well.

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

I have never heard of an oven glow bar igniter to fail is such a short time. If you happen to handle the dark portion of the igniter with your hands/fingers; the oil from your skin can cause the igniter to fail prematurely, other than that I do not know of any other reason why it would fail unless it's not the correct type of igniter for your model range.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

The glow bar igniter is in a gas dryer. I Changed the coils and it worked , but something is causing my igniter to fail. The dark portion of igniter has a burn mark on the filament that is causing a break and it does not glow. This is second igniter I have bought. I made sure I did not touch the bar to cause it to fail. Do you have any thoughts as to what could be doing this? The dryer works fine as to the drum rotation and the controls.

A:

Henry: Igniters are very fragile but in normal operation it should not break or burn out until it reaches some age. The igniter must turn off and not stay on and if it stays on, the dryer would not ignite. The flame sensor must open and break the circuit once the igniter comes on and glows for a short while. Other than that, I do not have a logical explanation why your igniter is burning out or breaking so soon. Again, the igniter is very fragile and if the dryer is being moved around/bounced, it could cause the igniter to break.

White-Westinghouse dryer model dg650axw2 What is the voltage feeding the igniter? If the igniter burns out is it noticeable and wouldn't there still be continuity?

A:

Fredree: The igniter operates on 110-120 volts AC. If it burns out; it is not always noticeable. It must be checked for continuity/resistance with an Ohm meter.
