Arrow Glow Coil

Hello: gcollis

First item to check is the glow coil. Open the burner access door and then turn the dryer on. Watch inside the burner compartment for the glow coil to light up and glow.

If all the controls are set correctly on the front control panel and the dryer is running but the glow coil fails to glow, you located the defective part. The glow coil will need to be replaced.

To remove the coil, turn off the gas first. Unplug the dryer from the electrical wall plug. Then remove the entire gas valve as an assembly. Take the entire assembled part to the local appliance retail parts store for a replacement coil.

Appliance parts dealers test and carry replacement parts for all appliances. Parts dealers are listed in the phone book under appliances.

Should you require additional help and or want to post any additional updated information, kindly use the REPLY button.

Regards & Good Luck
