Need a little help....Glow plug ignitor is getting AC but it wasn't
getting red, ordered a new one and tested it without the drum or gas
raceway installed and it began to glow red. Put the dryer back
together and no heat, took apart again and now new glow plug is not
getting red?? My gas valve coils are reading opens with everything
off and unplugged, is that correct? Could the glow plug have arced to
the gas raceway and burnt it out?? Not sure where to go from here.

i'm not actually sure what appliance this is for, but: on my gas
clothes dryer, i looked for the wiring diagram, it was hidden so well
inside the front wall that i didn't find it until the end of the
repair. my problem was first the temperature sensor has drifted in
its range of resistance, causing a condition of all cycles were too
hot for months. then, tumbles but won't dry: the hi cutout sensor had
failed and sent no power to the gas valve. i replaced the sensors
after playing around with every other test. i would guess a gas valve
would show resistance, but see also:
