Question and Answers

Q:

Gas dryer #11075942401 tumbles with no heat. I replaced the ignitor, and it still does glow. Thanks for a list specific to my model, of parts to examine,

A:

The wiring diagram for your dryer is shown in the image below with the circuit through the ignitor traced in red. I recommend that you unplug the dryer and check the thermal fuse first. I provided a drawing in the second image below that shows the location of that thermal fuse and how to remove the lower front access panel on the dryer. You will probably need to remove the lint duct cover as well. I provided a photograph of that process in the 3rd image. Here is a link for a brief repair video that shows how to check that thermal fuse: Thermal Fuse Testing . If that thermal fuse is blown, it will need to be replaced. The part number for that fuse is 3392519. You can order that part from the Sears PartsDirect website. Here is a direct link for that part: Thermal Fuse . NOTE: If that thermal fuse was blown, be sure that you check the exhaust vent duct system to the outside of your home for a clog or restriction as shown in that video.

If that thermal fuse is okay, you can check the radiant sensor (flame sensor) on the oven burner assembly in a similar manner. The 4th image below shows the components in that burner assembly and provides the theory of operation. If that radiant sensor is "open" then the ignitor will not glow.

You could also have an open high-limit thermostat or a bad operating thermostat that would cause this failure. A bad timer could also prevent the ignitor from glowing.

These tips may help you determine the cause of your heating failure in the dryer. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

If you get to a point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services .
