Question about Dryers
Runs has no heat
I would check components on the heater assembly under the dust cover in back on models where the filter is in the top. Their are 3 components. A 250f limit a 300 f limit and a 55oowatt heater element/ Remove at least one wire from each component and check them for continuity with an ohm meter to verify power is going through them. Make sure you have your dryer unplugged. if one of the limits is open you have an air flow issue. I made a you tube video. Google: "roper dryer no heat" and watch it. In the video I show how to check each item.

Unplug and turn off the gas feed. The fuse is located in the back of the series 70 attached to the lint housing near the bottom. About 1-1/2 inches long. Easy to remove, only two contact wire attachments. Note which wire goes where. Under $10.00 at an appliance parts store. Start with this fix.
If still no heat take out the ignitor assembly, located in the front, lower left. It is attached to the base of the dryer by 3 screws, the gas feed and two electrical wires with removable metal attachments (note which attachment goes where). The entire assembly will come out and the ingitor is attached to the front end. I took mine to the appliance parts store and it tested OK so it was the fuse. The owner helped me locate the fuse and suggested I try this first. The ignitor coil is about $25.00.
Both of these were easy enough for a novice (like me) to do. It saved a lot of money.
While the dryer was open I vacuumed out all the dust and lint and checked the integrity of the belt.

check the thermal fuse if it is blown also change the high limit thermal cut-off fuse www.repairclinic.com shows your parts. go there and enter model number. Also check the heat element. to get into it remove the lint filter and the two screws you'll see there then pry the top up at the front corners. And through the back you should find the heat element and blower housing and thermal fuse and high limit fuse and cycling thermostat.
