Question about Roper RGX4634KQ Gas Dryer
Dryer tumbles and goes through cycle ok, but will not fire, igniter comes on for short time but never fires the gas, gas supply is good, flame sensor is good, thermal fuse is good, never hear gas solonoid ckick.
Roper RGL4632BW (2 or Z)
You have a thermal overtemp sensor that has failed, they are located in maybe two spots, but the diagram on the dryer should show you where they are.
Most can be jumped over with a jumper wire, some are resistive devices that send back a signal based on changing temp and resistance, but most can simply be jumper across from one side to the other, and if stays on, there is your problem, for a gas valve to fire, and then go off, it is either a thermocouple device with pilot, or one of those overtemp devices I mentioned. If the valve was bad it would not light at all, so it is one of those devices not the timer, not the board, not the anything it is an overtemp or thermocouple device.
