Roper Gas Dryer not heating.

My roper gas dryer is not heating up at all. It is still tumbling just no heat. Also when I put it on the timed high heat cycle the timer knob does not move from where I set it. The other night it was on for over 5 hours and didnt budge. When I put it on the low hear timed option it does move....??? Any suggestions? Thanks

I have a roper gas dryer and have replaced the thermal fuse twice, the dryer will heat and dry a load of laundry and then next time i try to use it the dryer doesnt heat what else could my problem be???



Hi

If your dryer is not heating, then check if the power cord is plugged into the wall. It may be loose or disconnected. Inspect the fuses and circuit breakers they may have burned out or tripped. Usually, dryer will still tumble but not create heat if a fuse or a circuit breaker is not working. Now, check whether the heating element in your gas dryer is burned out by using an ohm meter to check for continuity. If the continuity is not there then you would need to replace the element. After checking the element, check out the thermal fuse to see if it's burned out. The thermal fuse is attached to the exhaust duct on the back panel of the gas dryer. It's usually surrounded by a black resin material situated in a housing made of white plastic. If the fuse looks like it

Roper gas dryer does not heat.


If the ignitor is not powering , go to the switch. That has to send power to the ignitor, then on to the gas valve.

Sounds like you broke a belt, which is very easy for some of us to replace. If your uncomfortable with gas call a repairman.

Manufactures place alot of safe guards on gas appliances. Please dont be afraid of it, gas is still more efficent at drying than an electric dryer.

Taking the back off the dryer towards the bottom in the center there is a white pc.of plastic about 3 inches long and 3/8" wide. Its clipped on the inside panel and has a screw securing it. It has two wires clipped to it.Thats the fuse ! I got a replacement form the local Sears parts store for about $15.00.
