Everthing is on the back. Unplug the appliance. remove the rear panel. This is a sweet machine. Very easy to fix. The element comes right off easily (2 screws either side of it). Look for breaks. if the element is kosher check the hi-limit mounted on the same heater above on the left. Hey here is some pic:NOTE Not shown is the 300 degree limit mounted at the top!!!dryer not heating - 38d8abb.jpgc4945e0.jpg

Amana dryer model YNED7200TW will not start. there is power, but start button does nothing. Resetting breaker did not work. Any ideas?


Thermal Fuse

Item #2986 (OEM Part)
$10.70

Thermal fuse. If the dryer overheats, this device stops the flow of electricity to the heat source and/or the entire dryer. It is located on the blower housing and cannot be reset. The most common cause for overheating is a vent tube clogged with lint, a birds nest or other debris.

Roper dryer wont heat and can see a flickering inside dryer


Hi,
When the dryer won't heat it is the thermostat/thermal fuse that is bad, you can test it with a voltmeter before replacing. This fuse is located inside the rear panel and it cannot be reset.
Hope this will help....

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 .

Dryer runs but doesn't heat up.


Check for a blown thermal fuse or faulty heating element. Both components can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Test for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a faulty component. The thermal fuse is about one inch long and is located just inside the rear of the dryer and is usually attached to the exhaust duct. Sure hope this helped and best wishes.

Will not heat


Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.

No heat


The most common cause of no heat to an otherwise functioning dryer is failure of the thermal cutout.
As well as the electric line fuses in the circuit there are devices that look like this 13889aa.jpg or this 284f4e0.jpg screwed to the exhaust air duct with wires to the terminals
, inside the dryer. If there is a lint blockage in the duct or fan or outside vent hood, the air tempoerature rises and melts out this thermal cutout (also thermal fuse, heat protector, heat cutout & any other names different makers use) before causing a fire.
Test with an ohmmeter or battery and lamp bulb, conducts good, no conducts fail-replace.
Despite the number of models of dryer there are only a few thermal fuses, and the local parts guy WILL have the blown one on the shelf, as GE if not as roper part.

Whil the dryer case is opened is a good time to vacuum out the exhaust vents, fan impeller, and vent hood. ounce of prevention and all that
