Re: Roper Dryer Won't Turn On
This fuse mounts on the rear blower housing. If lint builds up in the dryer this puppy will melt and shut down the dryer door circuit. It will be just as if you opened the door. Simply replacing it will get the dryer going again but failing to properly clean out the dryer will result in more fuse failures.

I bought this dryer 2 years ago. After exactly 1 year, the heat stopped working completely. It turned out to be the Thermal Cutoff device ($20). Then, just last week, the thing stopped working completely. It took me all of 10 minutes to determine that it was the Thermal Fuse (http://www.appliancepartspros.com/part_details.aspx?part_id=3132867), just by using my continuity detector on the two terminals. I unhooked the terminal wires, stuck them together, and the dryer turned on fine. They count on people buying new dryers completely whenever one of these dinky little parts made by child laborers in Asia fail. The fuse is $10 at the site I just linked.
Quick check list starting with the most likely to the mostly likely NOT: Fuse mounted on the blowers housing this puppy is wired in with the door switch. If the lint in the dryer gets to blocking the exhaust then this puppy gets all hot and bothered and melts, causing the whole machine to come to a screeching halt just as if you have opened the dryer door. Clever ain't it? Clean out the lint and replace this fuse.
