Q:

The new gas hs screwed up the diaphram in the caroborator for my 2.5 HP gas edger model # 536.797510. Any chnce of getting a new one? Paul

A:

You can order and have a new diaphragm (part# 49-002) shipped to you from Sears Parts Direct . The diaphragm will cost $4.59 plus shipping. I'm not positive but the new diaphragm may be made of different material that may not become damaged from the new gas with the added 10% ethanol.

Q:

Why won't my Kenmore Elite gas dryer heat properly?

A:

Make sure that the gas supply cut-off valve is fully open and that the dryer has an adequate gas supply.

If the igniter is not even glowing on the dryer, I recommend checking the thermal fuse first. Unplug the dryer and shut off the gas supply. Remove the bottom front service panel as shown in the first image below. The thermal fuse is located on the blower housing. It is Key 59 in the second image. It will have red and red/white wires attached to it according to the wiring diagram. It will be beside the operating thermostat that will also have the same colors of wires attached. To test the thermal fuse, remove one wire and measure the resistance across the leads of the fuse with a volt/ohm meter. You should measure near zero ohms of resistance (continuity) if the fuse is good. If the fuse measures infinite resistance (open), then it is blown and will need to be replaced.

NOTE: If the thermal fuse is blown, I recommend checking the exhaust vent system. Check the flexible vent hose behind the dryer for kinks or clogs. Check the exhaust duct system to the outside of the home for restrictions. You may need to have a service clean this duct system. Check the lint screen. If you use dryer softener sheets, you will need to periodically wash the lint screen with water to remove softener sheet residue.

If the thermal fuse is okay, then you can check the operating thermostat (Key 42) and the high limit thermostat (Key 43) in the same manner.

If all of the above components are okay, then you could have an open flame sensor, a failed igniter or failed gas valve coils that would prevent the burner from igniting. The following link of a previous answer explains the theory of operation for this gas valve assembly: Why won’t the igniter glow on my gas dryer? Understanding the operation of the gas valve assembly may help you determine the cause of your heating failure. If the igniter is glowing and then shutting off to allow current to flow through the gas valves but the coils are not strong enough to open the valves, then the coils will need to be replaced. If you detect this failure, then there is a kit that can be used to replace these coils. The kit costs less than buying the coils separately. The gas valve coil kit part number is 279834.

You can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect website.

These tips should help you fix the heating problem in your dryer. If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details.
