LG DLGX7188RM - not heating
« on: June 30, 2014, 09:26:07 AM »
My LG DLGX7188RM does not heat at all
Dryer pulled away from wall, vent disconnected, filter cleaned
the gas never comes on - no codes - seems to run normally
I cant find a lot of info on this specific model but I did find a teardown video on youtube

What I need help with is either a service manual for this model
or instruction on which components to check with a multimeter for proper function
to try and narrow down the problem

any help will be greatly appreciated
thanks

If that reset button pops again, replace it.
