ROPER MODEL RED4640YQ0. DRYER WILL NOT HEAT.THERMOSTATS AND HEATING ELEMENT GOOD


What I do is basically remove the drum and look for signs of lint. I clean it all up then check all the components removing a wire from each to get a good read. After you made dang sure all of them thangs have continuity you need to first make sure you have 240 volts going into the machine. The motor on dryers is 120 volt and runs on a separate circuit from the 5000 watt 240 volt heating element. So the dryer will run if the cord is bad or not connect corect OR the circuit breaker is bad OR tripped due to some sort of shorted wiring in the receptacle OR a bad receptacle. So after you know that is fine you gotta check the timer. Find the thick red wire going into the timer from the heating circuit (usually marked RH) remove it from the timer. Set the timer on a heating circuit like cotton or permapress and check between that terminal of the timer and all other terminals on the timer. If you cannot get a reading then your timer is fried inside and is in need of replacement. Google Roper dryer no heat and my video will show up. I did a couple on youtube. Estate dryer also on my youtube channel is a nice video. I have service manuals also on my youtube channel.

Amana ALE643RBW Dry will not start. I checked the thermal fuse and the high limit thermostat both read 0 to 4 back to 0 ohms. It was jumping around back and forth. Checked the heating coil it read 10...


Hello Dale,

Having checked the thermal fuseto be good i will give you a partial list other things that could make the dryer not start

start switch

door switch

timer

circuit breaker, use your meter set to volts ac and check for 240 vac at the outlet,if 240 not at power outlet check for burnt connection inside outlet or bad circuit breaker

if 240vac at outlet check for 240 vac at terminal block on back of dryer where cord connects,if 240 at outlet but not terminal block replace cord , if burnt connection at terminal block,replace cord and block

finally the motor,manufactures do not publish wiring diagrams online and the only way for me to tell you to use jumper cord to check motor is find the wiring diagram inside of control panel and place one wire on the terminal indicated as neutral on wiring diagram and one wire on terminal indicated on diagram as run winding

firstly though check door switch to have contunity (0 ohms) and the start switch to have (0 ohms)WHILE PUSHING IT IN(the start switch isa momentary contact switch and will only have contunity while its pushed in)
to check timer again use wiring diagram and find chart that shows various cycles and with timer set to a cycle the two wires is says will have contunity will be indicated by a solid black line on the diagram

Good luck, Gene

I have a Kemore 67732 and the light works inside the dryer but nothing else does. Is it a internal fuse ?


DRTZ,
They are no internal fuses, but there maybe a terminal block at the bottom and at the back of your dryer.
Carefully, slide out your dryer and unplug is as fast as possible.
You see Dryers and Stoves are build on 240V and splits them and then comes back to pwer the small stuff, Lite bulbs, The timer,the switches, so if your Terminal is defective... I've seen them that way and that is not safe.
Now after we detemine it is Not you terminal block and you have a multimeter to check the voltage. with your meter on AC,500v not DC, measure the voltage between the black and the red should be 240.
If it measures 240 then you will have to unplug and disasemble and look for burnt wires.
The last thing to check before disassmbling is to rotate your drum,in
Both directions. You will find that it will freely go one way only. If freely both ways... It is you belt that has broken and there is a kill switch close to the motor

Dryer not heating


usually when the dryer is not heating is because the heating element has break. you can purchase a heating element kit with insulators at a parts appliance store.requires taking the dryer apart and removing the drum. the heating element is behind the drum. if your handy you should have no problem. good luck!

No Heat,Cloths will not dry


It could be the heating element, a safety limit, a control problem, or an electrical problem. A heating coil is used to warm the clothes as they get tossed gently inside the drum.2d7f6df.jpg A blower mounted on the motor pulls air through the heating element into the drum and out the exhaust. The element gets old and brittle with use and eventually needs replacement. That is what you check first. One of the safety's might be blown. These safety's are set to a certain temperature for the dryer to operate safely.e3c839a.jpg The drum temp control for cotton is 160f. A limit on the heater housing is 250f. If it fails another smaller limit is mounted nearby that blows at 300f. If that temp exceeds 350f a duct fuse mounted on the blower housing opens and kills most dryers. On gas dryers the duct fuse will kill the gas assembly but the dryer will still run. If all of those safety's are good the timer could be the problem. The timer has a terminal on it that runs down to the heating element. If you suspect it is bad you can check it with a meter.17d1511.jpg That leg of the timer should have continuity with other terminals on the timer at different spots on the timer. Turning the timer and checking for continuity will give a clue. If you cannot get continuity with any other terminal on the timer at any position on the dial then you have a burned contact in the timer. If that turns out to be good, you would need to inspect the electrical outlet for proper power to the machine. On American models the motor runs on 120 volts but the heating element must have 240 volts. c92e858.jpg9cc4f3c.jpg27065fb.jpged19d36.jpg

Dryer runs and all fuses oum out element oums out but no heat 110 olts to motor 110 volts to element


The motor runs on 120 volts. If you have a bad breaker or wall receptacle or cord you won't get any heat. f028c9d.jpgThe motor will however run the dryer. If the dryer is getting 240 at the terminal block then you may have a burnt contact inside your timer. if all other components check good find the terminal marked RH. Remove the wire (power is disconnected) connect one lead of your meter to that terminal with an aligator clip. Slowly turn the knob and check for continuity between RH and any other terminal on the timer at all locations on the dial. If you cannot get continuity on any other terminal then your timer has failed and will need to be replaced.37b8069.jpg

No heat drum turns no heat blower works no heat


It could be the heating element, a safety limit, a control problem, or an electrical problem. A heating coil is used to warm the clothes as they get tossed gently inside the drum. A blower mounted on the motor pulls air through the heating element into the drum and out the exhaust. The element gets old and briitle with use and eventually needs replacement. That is what you check first. On gas dryers vibration and age will cause the igniter to crumble and fail. If it turns out the element is fine then one of the safety's might be blown. These safety's are set to a certain temperature
for the dryer to operate safely. The drum temp control for cotton is 160f. A limit on the heater housing is 250f. If it fails another smaller limit is mounted nearby that blows at 300f. If that temp exceeds 350f a duct fuse mounted on the blower housing opens and kills most dryers. On gas dryers the duct fuse will kill the gas assembly but the dryer will still run.

Dryer will not heat up.


The following link can give you some more advise on troubleshooting a dryer no heat problem:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r630242-dryer_runs_but_not_heat

Begin by verifying your input voltage at the wall receptacle. You should read 220-240 VAC across the two hot leads (the left and right slots in the receptacle). If good, remove the back cover over the terminal block of the dryer (where the power cord is installed) and plug the dryer back in. Take a reading across the RED and BLACK wires at the terminal block. If good, your problem is in the heating circuitry. If bad, you have a bad power cord.

The reason I mention the input voltage is because many people assume it is good if the dryer drum is still spinning. The drive motor which turns the drum, however, only uses half the input voltage because it runs off 110-120 VAC. The heating circuits require the full 220 service in order to operate. If you are missing a portion of the source voltage, the dryer will exhibit the same problems you describe.

Read through the link I provided and pay particular attention to the section that discusses proper dryer ventilation. Most dryer heat related problems are actually caused by poor ventilation causing the dryer to overheat to the point of failure. If you haven't cleaned your ventilation ducting anytime recently, now might be a good time. Leaving a dryer in a clogged or poorly ventilated condition will cause repeated failures of any components you might be replacing.

If you have questions along the way, let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

The Dryer wont start.


Often the main wiring connection from the house at the dryer burns, and the connection breaks. Verify the connection at the back of dryer, and if visually you can't she the brake then check for voltage (240). If there is not enough voltage at the terminal block-replace the terminal block and the cable.

No Heat!


check your supply voltage the motor runs on 110v so it is possible that you have lost the other leg of 120 so the motor runs but the heater doesnt get the 240 necessary to operate.
also there could be trouble with the motor switch or the timer so make sure you have 240 at the heater. if not then follow the 240 from the terminal block till you find where it stops
