Roper dryer will not heat after replacing element

We replaced our heating element in our dryer and after replacing it the dryer will still not heat. We think it might have something to do with the wires that plug into the bottom of the element there is only 1 wire to hook to the 2 prongs on the element. We checked the thermostats and the are good. What else can we do?

Brand new dryer wont heat


depending on which model roper dryer it can be a thermal fuse,high-limit thermostat,cycling switch,burned off wire in control panel,check each side of the heating element to ground and find 125 v.a.c. then on the side of the element that has low or no voltage on it to ground start at the element and back track the components leading to the dead leg on the element till you find 125 vac to ground and replace or repair component or wire,then you should get 240 to 250vac across heating element terminals

MY ROPER DRYER QUIT HEATING STILLS WORKS NO HEAT


The thermal cut-off , which is the small t-stat looking piece located at the top of the element housing ( on vertical mount elements ) or the far front of the element housing ( on horizontal mount elements ) , is usually the cause for no heat .

How do I replace a heating element in a Roper clothes dryer? I get no resistance across the element with my ohm meter so I assume the element has been broken or burned in two. I can not find a way to...


I am not really familiar with your particular model number but most roper dryers have the heating element in a thin metal housing that is rectangular. The housing is part of the heating element and comes with the new one. Usually you just take the screws out of the outside of the housing and it comes right out. I hope this helps.

IT RUNS BUT DOES NOT HEAT


Hi,

Check the blown fuses and home’s circuit breaker tripped. Dryer use 2 household Fuses or a circuit breakers, If one is blown, the dryer may still operate but not heat. Alternatively, the dryer may heat, but it may not heat up as hot as it should. Replace the Fuses or reset the circuit breaker.

Another common cause of a dryer failing to heat is a faulty Heating Element. You will need to replace it.

Good Luck and have a nice day.
Rating the solution is highly appreciated.

My roper dryer REX6634pq0 does not heat!!


there is a thermal overload switch that activates the heating element. This switch will be located in the area of the element itself. It is designed to shut off the element in the event the element itself reaches a temp beyond it's designed temp. It is a safety device. If the switch is out it will not allow the heating element to activate. This switch looks like a silver button and has several wires going to it is about the size of a dime. Replace this switch and you should be good to go
