Question about Roper RGX4634KQ Gas Dryer

1 Answer

I am having trouble with my roper gas dryer. The ignitor will light up and ignite the gas, but will turn off within a minute. The ignitor will continue to light up, but don't believe that there is any gas coming out. Is this my coils? Also will this cause the dail from turning?

Replace the igniter. It’s not enough to lights up; it has to get to an appropriate temperature to ignite the gas.

Ignitor is lighting but silinoid is not opening to let gas through.Roper model # RGS7646KQ3


Hello,

Hello,
Your have one of two problem causing the gas to not come on on your dryer.
1) the flame sensor is bad...if the igniter comes on and stays on and doesn't go off...usually within 1 minute the flame sensor isn't working as its supposed to
2) the coils on the gas valve could be the problem...if the igniter does indeed go off within 1 minutes and as soon as the igniter goes off if their is no flame the coils on the gas valve is what would need to be replaced
here is what each part looks like

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....



If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.



check out this electric no heat tip...

Roper RGX5634KQ2 Dryer will fire initially, and heat up. It will stay fired up for around 1-2 minutes, and go out. After another couple minutes, the igniter fires, but there is no flame. This continues...

How do i light the pilot lite on the dryer it is a roper 4 cycle # 9831176


The dryer is automatic ignition through a glowbar ignitor. Open the lid and remove the front panel to access the glowbar. It is on the bottom right at the gas valve.
It will need replacing.

Dryer is not putting out heat. Gas is connected and working in other parts of the house near the dryer.


Check the ignitor underneath the drum. (You have to open the panel to see it) It should glow shortly after the dryer starts, then the flame starts and the ignitor shuts off. If the ignitor does not glow then it or the thermostat is bad. If the ignitor is glowing but the gas does not light then the flame sensor may have to be replaced. If the gas ignites but does not stay on either the flame sensor or the coils are at fault.

If everything above is OK then the thermostat2.gif or the auto sensor is not working correctly.

If the ignitor is not powering , go to the switch. That has to send power to the ignitor, then on to the gas valve.
