My roper dryer model rgx5634kq2 wont heat. the glow bar comes on and then goes off, other times the glow bar comes on and there is a flame, the timer only advances for certain cycles as well.


Hi,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.


if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....


If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

Roper RGX5634KQ2 Dryer will fire initially, and heat up. It will stay fired up for around 1-2 minutes, and go out. After another couple minutes, the igniter fires, but there is no flame. This continues...

I have a Roper Gas Dryer, Model #RGX5634KQ2 it runs off propane. The dryer turns on and tumbles. It lights, heat comes on for just a minute then goes out. Clothes want dry


The problem sounds like the dryer coils are failing.They tend to fail as they heat up. These are very inexpensive and easy to fix. It could be several other things thermal fuse, thermal cut out, hi limit thermostat, heat sensor,or ignitor. All of these parts are inexpensive and easy to test and replace.There is a video at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html this will walk you thru the troubleshooting of these components. It may be a different model but the troubleshooting will be the same.You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations. Not all models are available. If you need help disassembling your machine there are videos of this also for most styles.

My dryer turns on and heat fires up but only stays on for about ten min then shuts off Roper rgx5634kq2


the coils may be weak and not holding the valve open for the gas or you may have a weak ignitor. the ignitor should glow white hot not orange. hope this helps.

I have a 6yro roper gas dryer. model : rgx5634kq2 everything works except it wont heat up ignitor is good as well as thermal fuse


Hello, If your igniter is glowing does not mean it's good, Take a look at it while it is glowing..Is it orange in color..Uneven glow? then it's bad...the igniter needs to be pulling 3.5 amps in order for a) the gas valve to open B) gas to ignite once gas valve opens. The glow should be a brillient yellow that you find hard to look at. If the igniter is bad the only other possibilty is the flame sensor. It is the gadget hooked to the side of the tube where the flame is. Using an ohms meter disconnect the 2 wires from the terminals and check for condinuity..If you have no reading (condinuity) you should replace it. Good Luck!!! If you have any other questions or concerns please feel free to comment again. Mike

How do i open the machine to get to the coil valve/ do i remove the blower wheel? and if so how is that done (roper mod# rgx4634jq0)


Here are the break down diagrams and Replacement parts for WHIRLPOOL RGX5634KQ2 |
AppliancePartsPros.com

Did you check the element?
Check if glow?.
also checked the continuity of the flame sensor.
If is good.

Am I to assume then that the heating element is bad? Or could there be another issue?

thia mean that the thermal fuse is bad.
You need to replace along with the cycling thermostat and see what happens.
