Dryer problem

7 posts in this topic

My gas dryer is working intermittently. Sometimes it will light the burner and sometimes it won't. Sometimes it will stay lit and sometimes it goes out in short order. I have tried cleaning out that area. Any other ideas? Is it worth fixing? It is about 16 years old (I am guessing we have only been in the house two years).

First thing to check is if the machine is venting. After 16 years chances are your venting duct work is all plugged. Most common place for the plugs are on the elbows going out of the house and right where it comes out of the dryer.

Thank you. Anything I need to know before I pull things apart. Other than cut gas and power of course.

Does the ignighter come on every time you start the dryer?

Yes but only if I reset the dial or timer first. If I only turn it off and then hit start it is intermittent.

When mine did that it turned out to be the coil on top of the gas valve. There are 2 and they sit on metal posts held down by a small plate with 2 small screws. The coils came 2 in a bag for about 30 bucks.

Thanks. We may give that a try. I have a feeling I will be up to my elbows in dryer lint come Saturday morning. I will give the vent a good cleaning and look for those coils.

Thanks again

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      I live 10 min from cabelas and they have like 4 trolling motors on the floor.... dont like buying something i cant look at.

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
