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.

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 store...you can trace this out. Remember to turn off the power if you do.

My dryer will not turn on


Several different possibilities. Tripped breaker, door switch, start switch, timer, motor, thermal fuse, and maybe more. Might need to call service for it.

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.
