First, check to make sure your fryer is assembled correctly, everything is seated firmly, and nothing wet or oily. make sure everything's turned off, and there is oil in the reservoir. also make sure (on the rival czf625, not sure about the 630) that the magnetic "surerelease" is properly attached and secure (i can not begin to explain the grief this has caused me, every movement seems to dislodge the plug, though it still looks attached). plug in the power cord to the outlet, and try to turn it on. if all looks well, and it still doesn't work, i'd send for a replacement heating element.

Sounds like you need to replace the timer one the dryer not the element but to make sure I would do a little trouble shooting to rule out the element or heating coil turn on dryer cycle like normal for about 30 seconds then open the door to feel for heat if you do feel heat its your cycle/timer knob if you don't feel heat then it's the coil or element witch are the same also first always check your lint trap and ducts going outside the dryer make sure you have proper airflow through ducts vents. clogged vents ducts ect. Cause over heating of element coil causing a safety fuse to shut down heating coil/element but will not stop cycle also moisture censors detect moisture causing cycle to continue on hope this helps.
The heating element needs to be checked to see if it has power and if it has burned out. To do this, you need a meter that checks voltage and resistance. To test it, locate the connections to the heating element and with the machine unplugged test the heating coil with the meter set to measure resistance. It should not be infinite. IF it is then the coil is burned out.
Most electric furnaces use time delay relays called sequencers to turn the heating elements on and off. If your thermostat is calling for heat, the sequencer coil should get 24 volts and the contacts will close in a pre-determined order bringing on each element individually. If the sequencer coil is getting 24 volts and the elements are not heating, then one of the following issues is going on. 1. The sequencer contacts are not closing because it is defective. Therefore the heating element is never getting proper voltage (usually 208/230V) 2. The heating element may be broken. 3. The high temperature limit switch for the element may be open, not allowing proper voltage to the element, or 4. The element is not getting proper voltage because of a blown fuse, tripped breaker, or broken wire. I hope this helps!!!
If you are fairly sure that the power is reaching the clothes dryer, and the clothes drum is spinning, unplug the dryer first. Then using a continuity checker check the heating element. very often if the element needs replacing you will notice a break in the coil. Just like a light bulb, the heating element will eventually need to be replaced. The coil is the only source of heat, although it has components that operate it .
This means your heating element has burnt out. Usually they consist of a coil, much like you can see on a hair dryer, in line with the air intake. Most common cause is the coil burning out due to excess lint and severing itself. When the coil breaks electricity cant travel from positive to negative so the coil stops heating up. Look online, try sears, type in your model number followed by - heating element - . You should be able to find your model number in the manual or by searching the name of the dryer. If you get the heating element and pay someone to install it, you should not have to pay more then getting a new dryer.
Without knowing your problem, I would guess that the heating element has burned out. This is a common issue with many dryers, regardless of brand.
The hearing element in a clothes dryer is like any other heating element, such as in a space heater, heat gun, or hair dryer. It is basically a continuous coil that is held in place by insulators, usually ceramic.
As the element ages, the coil becomes brittle and can often break. When a breakage occurs, the circuit is no longer complete and will not produce heat.
Replacing one is fairly simple.
The first thing that you should do is unplug your dryer.
Once unplugged, remove the exhaust duct.
Use a screwdriver to remove the electric access panel in at the rear of the dryer.
Locate and remove the heating element.
Inspect the element for a break in the coil. The problem is not always obvious so it may be good to do a continuity test on it.
Replace part if necessary. Elements will usually run $20 or so.
The heating coil in a lot of this style heater is a springlike coil mounted in insulating holders. I am not sure about your particular heater but what has usually been the problem with these heaters is that the coil has broken and shorted to earth. Turn off power at the trip and remove the heating element cover and the electrical cover on the heater. If you can not see any physical damage put an ohm meter between the element and the earth screw in the electrical connection box. If the meter shows any continuity the element is faulty and needs to be replaced. Hope this is of some help.
if coils is heating are you sure motor isn't running or just the drum not turning ? if drum not turning suspect belt ..if motor not running but element still heating suspect element is contacting outer case ..with coil touching case 110 volts is present even without motor turning if timer is turned to heat position element will not heat to capacity but will get hot enough to eventually blow element fuse
