My gas dryer, a 1991 Kenmore Model 110.77694100 does not heat up. It
tumbles okay and I can hear a switch click when I turn the heat control
but the heat does not come on. I looked for a gas ignitor on the
diagram but the only thing shown there is a Burner Assembly (279894)
which sells for about $104.
I need to take the back off of the dryer and inspect the burner assembly
to make sure there are no obvious problems (mice eating the insulation
off a control wire, etc). I will also check with a volt meter to make
sure voltage is getting to the assembly when I operate the heat control
switch. If everything looks good that far, I suppose I'll wack the
burner assembly with a hammer.
Any other ideas that I might look at?
