Frigidaire gas dryer problem

hello all.

I have a fairly new Frigidaire Gallery gas dryer. The unit stopped heating up a couple of days ago..once and a while you get a little bit of heat but that is it. The gas line is fine. What should i check for and where do you get access to the burner assembly? thanks in advance
model# FSG447GHSO
If i turn the temp from no heat(fluff) to low heat, i hear a clicking sound..sometimes this doesn't happen

Arrow Check The Entire Venting System First

Hello jkeav634. Welcome to my Gas Appliances topic and the Do-It-Yourself Web Site.

A little bit of heat most likely indicates a restricted exhaust venting system and/or the vent hoods internal flapper door is not opening, not opening fully and/or there may be a kink or sharp bend in the venting tube, if it is flexible plastic.

If the dryer works properly without any vent attached to it, the venting system is the problem, even if you cleaned it. May be the exhaust hoods inner flapper door is not fully opened, stuck partially closed or not opening fully, etc.

Read the existing questions on the subject of dryers. Doing so will quickly provide you with answers to questions & provide additional information on how to resolve the problem.

DRYER SERVICE TIP:
It's always adviseable to clean the entire exhaust venting system every 2 years. Or during any dryer maintenance, connection, servicing and or repairs.

I have cleaned all the vents..The vent outside is blowing strong, just no heat.. There is no heat at all when drying on any cycle. I do hear the click when I switch from no heat to heat, but it never heats up.. How do I gain access to the internals on this unit? thanks in advance

Lift the top, remove two screws holding the front panel to the body, unplug connectors on right side, tilt front towards you and lift up. Good chance one of the two burner coils is bad. Scott
