dryer wont dry

This all started as the door open code, I had this once before, i opened the machine and started checking the thermal fuses, ended up replacing them all (all were open)
Then that got rid of the code, however, now the heat never kicks on.
I have replaced both the front control panel and the control board, (bought 2 control boards now) still no heat.
I then replaced the motor switch with no luck.
I probed around a bit and have found that I have voltage to the heater relay, but no voltage on the other side of the relay going to the ignitor and coils, when jump that connection with a wire the ignitor lights up.

any ideas?

Then the control board is bad.

Here's the part you need:

ughh, this is what I thought. I have already tried 2 of these and it is the same result, I have 3 control boards and all three do the same thing, i should go buy a lotto ticket or it has to be something else.
I think I am going to part this thing out on ebay and recover what money I can. I cant justify buying another part this expensive.

What was the door open error code you were getting?

Did you do a factory reset per your tech data sheet? I'm attaching your tech. data sheet below.

I was getting an E66. I found the thermal limiter was bad ( this happened before 3 years ago) I believe it is because of the long run I am constrained to in this old house. I did the factory reset on the original controller, when that didnt work i ordered a used one from an online appliance store, same problem, then I bought a OEM from a local appliance store same problem. I have not done the factory reset on the new one, i figured i didnt have to.

Ok, if you checked all your wires for a short or loose connection, then you have a very unusual problem and you'd need to contact Frigidaire at 1-800-374-4432 to come out and see what's going on.
