Roper gas dryer will not heat. Igniter?

Hi there,

Well if your dryer tumbles, but there is no heat then you may please check out the following -
1. First of all you can check out for proper air flow - Check the vent for proper air flow by placing your hand over the exterior vent while the dryer is running. You should feel a strong flow of air. If not then check the lint trap. It is located either on top of the dryer or possibly just inside the door. Remove any lint that has built up in the lint trap. Cleaning the lint trap should be done regularly, even as often as after every load. Do not operate the dryer without a lint trap in place.
2. Secondly you can check out the Ignitor - gas dryer blows air through a burner assembly to heat the air. The burner assembly consists essentially of a gas valve, ignitor and a flame sensor. If any part of the burner assembly malfunctions, the result will be low or no heat and slow drying of the clothes.
Post comments for further help or information.....

Good Luck!!

Thanks for using FixYa!!

Replace both coils on the burner valve . After heating up , they will not open to let gas thru again until cooled down for a short period of time . With no heat , timer will not cut off unless set for timed dry .

Dryer heats up and then stops heating

My gas one just did this. I tested the fuse myself located on the side of the lint trap. It was fine using my electrical tester. I then took the 2 coils off which are easy they are located on the burner. 2 screws removed the plate under are the 2 coils. Took them to ACE hardware were they tested them. The 2 prong was stuck in the open position. The three prong was fine. , I still replaced both and it works great now. What happened was the burner would kick on then when it hit operating temperature it would shut off. Then when it needed to kick on again the 2 prong being stuck in the open position wouldn't ignite burner again.
