Question about Dryers
Hi I have a Roper dryer Model rex5634kq1. it worked fine this morning and then we placed another load in and it would not come on. I am getting power to all sectors of the setting dial. but nothing to the push button starter.
The dryer will not start with a broken door switch. Replace the door switch if found defective.
Most dryers have a door switch actuator lever - when you close a dryer door, it presses against the lever, which actuates the door switch. If the lever is broken, the switch will not activate and the dryer will not start. Replace the lever, if broken.
Note: Door switch actuator lever usually comes with the door switch assembly and it is recommended to get the whole assembly since there is almost no price difference between the door switch assembly and just the lever.
I would also check the thermal fuse as well. it is located on the vent duct or blower housing. If this fuse is damaged or tripped, it will not allow the dryer to run as well.
