Question about Roper RES7646KQ Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Will start and run, but no heat.

The other day I went to use the dryer and it would not start. When my husband got home he went downstairs and changed the fuse in the circuit breaker. I pushed start and it ran for a few seconds and stopped again. I replaced the fuse once more and it is running, however there is no hot air, only cool. Is there are reset button, or what could this issue be? Are we better off to buy a new unit this one is about 7 years old.

Re: Will start and run, but no heat.

These units have two circuit breakers...generally hooked up in tandem. It is always possible that the heater element is out. Sometimes they open a breaker when they fail. If you see a wiring diagram on the back of the unit and are handy with a multimeter...available at the hardware can trace this out. Remember to turn off the power if you do.

Indesit is70c

its a saftey device, called a "thermodisk". It's purpose is to turn off the heating coil or stop gas flow in the event of over heating. If the thermodisk is bad, trying to over ride it (trying to get it to run) will trip the breaker. Its about 10 bucks and easy to replace.

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.

Dryer wont start

most of these dryers have a thermal fuse that shuts the dryer down when it over heats and it is not resetable. most of these on a kenmore are on the back of the dryer. locate the thermal fuse and use an ohm meter to tell if it has continuity or not. no continuity - replace it.

also if your dryer is over heating one of the most common causes is a crimped vent hose or pipe. don't use plastic hose as it crimps shut easily and won't let the heat out of the dryer causing the problem you described.

How can i repair the dryer when it wont heat. It heats only in the beggining then it does heat anymore more after 10 minutes, how can I fix it?

I was dealing with this exact issue for the past few days! I have a model # MDG5500AWQ. Starting to hang dry clothes and all. I read through these blogs and found that it was a GAS VALVE SOLENOID COIL that I needed to be REPLACED. I was told by a Magtag dealer that when the gas flame cut out like this the issue was 99% of the time the gas valve solenoid coil kit. I was even trying to call around to try and get a tech out today but none were available and they wanted $65.00 just to come out and look at it. So I went to the Magtag website and found a dealer in my area and asked them for the part. If you open the front part of the dryer and push the button to make the dryer turn on without the door closing it in a few seconds the flame starts on and about 1 minute later the flame totally cuts out. My husband just got through changing out these coils which were smaller than the picture, only $35.00 with tax front the dealer, and located in the very front of the dryer,. towards the bottom, when you open the dryer front. He replaced them and I'm drying a load of laundry right now, thank God!

Dryer runs no heat

Sounds to me you either blew the fuse or tripped the circuit for the heating element. Try replacing the fuse or resetting the breaker before trying any repairs.

Dryer stopped running, will not restart

When you try to restart do you hear a motor running? If you do hear that sound and the dryer does not turn your belt could be the problem. (broken)

No heat from our REX7648KQ electric dryer.

I couldnt bring up this model # Is it 22ov?full size dryer? I would recheck fuse's should be 2 one for each leg of 110v . I would check to see if you have 220v to back of dryer where the cord mounts to dryer Also some models have themal fuse on burner of dryer in back, this will keep heater from coming on... You can hook the wires together, that hook to themal fuse, being careful not to short wires and test if heater will come on
