My dryer won't run. It has power, but the inside light is dim and the start button just humms quietly. Any ideas?

Really sounds like a power problem. Start by turning the breaker off and then back on. I have seen breakers trip but the handle does not move. This can drive you nuts as it "Looks" like the breaker is o.k. If this does not help, then you have to start by verifying that you have the correct voltage to the unit. If you do, the problem is anywhere from the plug/ cord, to anything inside the unit. This requires following the circuit one item at a time.
If you don't have the correct power, you need to address that.

Good luck and hope this helps.

My Roper gas dryer will not start. It does make a humm/click sound when the button is pushed. The sound comes from behind the setting knob. Is there a fuse?

The dryer work sometimes and sometimes it don't...meaning it will spin sometime and sometime it won't


More information needed.
If you push the start button, do you here a loud humm and /or the lights dim down? Do smell a electrical smell? Do you here a click after a while?
Or do you hear the motor come on, but the drum does not come on.

You probably have a blown thermal fuze, it is white plastic and attached to the blower housing.
