SQ ST30DFG Dryers Ignition Lockout & No Power

  • 1.  SQ ST30DFG Dryers Ignition Lockout & No Power

    Posted 3 days ago
    I have 2 separate challenges:
    1- I have 2 stacks where the ignitor flashes 3 times-meaning ignition lockout. What can i do to correct this?
    2-I have 1 stack with no power to the ignitor. What can I do to correct this?

    All 3 have the new ignitor kits. That's how I get the ignition lockout message.
    Thanks in advance.

    For starters would check the switch inside the motor. A paperclip in the connector works perfect for testing purposes. Now the no power can be the door sw, the lint sw, or a blown fuse.

    How do I test the switch inside the motor? The drive motor or the blower motor?

    The blower motor. Brown and white wires have a plug by the contactor. Pull them aprt and jump them on the dryer side.

    This is the motor on the bottom of the machine on the far left. It has a connector with four wires in it. Please tell me you are following me with your wiring schematic from the back of the access panel.  It has two 14 gauge wires and two 16 gauge wires. The 16 gauge are the control circuit. They are connected to a centrifugal switch inside the motor. Typically the contacts would be self cleaning if you had a higher voltage. Well you don't and they are not as a result. Place the paperclip between the two smallest wires. If you did not follow this PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE  do not attempt to do this yourself! You may do more damage than good! You may actually destroy your dryer.

    Curt, this is a stack dryer,Correct? The motor on the far left is the drive motor. The blower motor is mounted vertically in the center.
