Question about Roper Dryers
Gas will not start up. Dryer timers will not turn off. Dryer tumbles and clothes dry with no heat after about 2 hours.
If your unit has a standing pilot, is the pilot lit? If not, push the Basso control button and light it according to the instruction sticker.
Next, the main thing you should suspect is the capillary tube. This thin tube runs from a hollow bolt on the gas control to the gas burner. If defective, it will not allow the unit to light off further. Remove the tube, take it to the hardware store and get a replacement and install. If these two items don't fix the unit, get professional help.
