Hello Friend, Your problem is very simple to fix. You need a thermal fuse and or heater element, both very simple and affordable to replace. Try replacing the thermal fuse first to see if that's the problem. To replace the thermal fuse just remove back cover of dryer and look down where the air blows out. Now, just to the left where all the wires are you will see a white plastic part with two wires plugged into it. This part is called a thermal fuse. Just remove these wires and replace the thermal fuse. If this don't solve your problem you will need to replace the heater element. To replace the heater element, with the back cover off of your dryer just look down and to the right of were the air blows out. You will see the electric heating unit with two fat red wires plugged into it. Unplug these wires and you will see on the sheetmetal housing two screws that hold it on, one on each side. On older elctric dryers there is only one screw that holds element in place, it is on the bottom center of element screwed in from behind. Remove screw(s) and remove old heater element. Now, lay the new element next to the old one and take notice that there is a heat sensor attached to the old element where one of the red wires unplugged from. Gently remove this sensor and install it onto the new element in the same location as the old one. If you have an older electric dryer, the old heater element doesn't have the heat sensor on it, just skip this step. Now, plug in your two red wires and re-install your heater element. Your dryer will run like new. Happy to help, Tim.

Dryer not heating. check the thermostat, the heating coils and the fuse, all check out fine. What could be the issue?


Hi,

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....

My Roper dryer ran a cycle with no heat then when I turned it off and tried to turn it back on...it will not come on at all. What might be the problem, I have checked the electric source and it is fine.


Hello, It is possibly the thermal fuse. Be sure to clean out the vent hose and the vent pipe to the outside to prevent over heating. If the vent system is ok then replace the thermostat as well as the thermal fuse. You can goto - http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action - to buy parts and get a parts breakdown of most brands. Just enter your model number and select model search.
Good Luck

MY ROPER DRYER QUIT HEATING STILLS WORKS NO HEAT


The thermal cut-off , which is the small t-stat looking piece located at the top of the element housing ( on vertical mount elements ) or the far front of the element housing ( on horizontal mount elements ) , is usually the cause for no heat .

THE DRYER IS NOT GETTING HOT


Hi,
Verify that all breakers (or Fuses) are fine, Electric dryer use 2 household Fuses or a circuit breakers, Replace the Fuses or reset the circuit breaker.
Sometime, the dryer may heat, but it may not heat up as hot as it should. To repair, first check the vent hose. It must be clear for the dryer to work well. Make sure that the hose is not being crushed by the dryer. If the hose is very worn, or crushed, you'll need to replace it. The hose attaches to the back of the dryer and the outdoor vent with a spring clamp.
Another common cause of a dryer failing to heat is a faulty element (Heating Element). You'll need to replace it.


Good Luck and have a nice day.
Rating the solution is highly appreciated.

No heat


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. No Heat issue in an electric dryer is usually caused due to three things mainly: Thermal Fuse, Wiring Harness and/or Heating Element. Start with checking the Thermal Fuse which is mounted inside the back cover panel to the exhaust duct and is mounted in white plastic housing. If that’s fine then the Heating Element should be checked. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Roper dryer stopped working during cycle REX6634RQO


replace your t-fuse again but also chekc to see if the vent going outside is restricted. if hte vent is smashed or clogged the heat has nowhere to go. i would say that is your issue. clean your vent before you change he t-fuse.

No heat


The most common cause of no heat to an otherwise functioning dryer is failure of the thermal cutout.
As well as the electric line fuses in the circuit there are devices that look like this 13889aa.jpg or this 284f4e0.jpg screwed to the exhaust air duct with wires to the terminals
, inside the dryer. If there is a lint blockage in the duct or fan or outside vent hood, the air tempoerature rises and melts out this thermal cutout (also thermal fuse, heat protector, heat cutout & any other names different makers use) before causing a fire.
Test with an ohmmeter or battery and lamp bulb, conducts good, no conducts fail-replace.
Despite the number of models of dryer there are only a few thermal fuses, and the local parts guy WILL have the blown one on the shelf, as GE if not as roper part.

Whil the dryer case is opened is a good time to vacuum out the exhaust vents, fan impeller, and vent hood. ounce of prevention and all that
