No heat My  Roper Gas Dryer Mod. # RGX4634KQ2 turns, but does not get hot . I've read it could be one of the two fuses but I don't know where they are. Could you help me with finding the location of these fuses?

    The dryer turns but no heat. I smell the gas however the dryer does not ignite.

  • harry0725 May 27, 2008

    Everything seems to work except for the heat. There is power to one terminal of the thermostat bet the thermostat tests open. When I jumper out the thermostat, the gas solenoid pulls in and I get heat. do you agree that I need a thermostat - (a small 1 1/2"+/- long 1/2" wide device with 2 terminals that mounts in the air duct on the back of the machine)?

    I have the same issue

    No heat, but on on of the pre set timers it did not turn off.

    I switched it to a few of the other options and the time did work but still no heat

    I have not got the chance to get into back of dryer

    I did reset the breaker and checked the vents

    would these be two different issues?

    Please help

There is one on the blower housing close to the outlet. It is white and rectangular in shape (usually has two blue wires connected to it. The other one is on the side of the heater box (the box at the rear of the cabinet that directs hot air into the drum) this one looks more like a normal thermostat. If either of these are open it may mean that there is an air flow issue or a fused thermostat contact. Burned wire terminals to either fuse means that there was a poor contact between the terminals. Make sure wire terminals are tight when reconnecting them.

Roper Dryer RED4440SQ0 TOO MUCH HEAT

T'he glow you saw was on the back wall in the dryer behind the a grated area if I'm correct. What you saw was the heating element, or a reflection of it while it was on. The element glows bright red when power is being applied to it to function and is housing is made of sheet metal so it does carry a reflective quality. If you really want to make sure that the dryer isn't over heating, which I don't believe it is due to the fact that would mean the high limit thermostat has failed in a way that I've never really seen, take the vent off the back and using a digital thermometer check to see how high it gets before the machine cycles off and the temperature drops.

Dryer running ,but no heat.Roper gas dryer,mod - RGD440VQ0, Sn - MW/2901047

Most common reasons for a gas dryer to fail: 1. No electric, 2. no gas supply, 3. failed ignitor, 4. failed flame sensor. If 1 & 2 are ruled out, then we go from there. An ignitor/glow ignitor is what gets hot and allows the gas to be ignited. Most dryers will not let the igntior come on if the flame sensor is down. Replacing an ignitor is very easy. Usually 1 screw and a molex (special type of plastic electrical connection). Molex connection will usually pull apart very easily. This repair should cost less than about $30 if you buy it online. There are step by step instructions for this repair on this website if you search for "gas dryer no heat troubleshooting." Making this repair will require access to the internal workings of your dryer. Make sure the dryer is unpluged from the wall before you access it or the control panel.

I have changed my theremal fuse twice in the last three days. it seems that the dryer is getting too hot. When i change the fuse it works for one load, then the burner will not light any more. is there...


Yes, the thermostat needs to be replaced at the same time...

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...

I have a roper dryer that was working fine than all of a sudden just stopped turning. I've checked everything I know circuit breaker. Does the roper dryer have a reset button???

No, reset button on these. It may be the lid switch or the thermal fuse. This is what I find most of the time. Check out the diagram on and you'll see the parts locations. Oh, if it's not the thermal fuse of the lid switch it may be the timer. I've seen this a couple of times.

Hay Bud, you have an excellent excuse to buy a multimeter congratulations.. when you do, access the burner assembly and controller circuit board, on your disassembley you will likely find a wiring diagram, this will be very helpful in diagnosing your fault, let me know when you have the meter and the diagram and i will step you through the diagnostic proses.

1st unplug. Take off the back panel. Yeah that means you have to pull it out and disconnect everything. While you are at it clean out all of the built-up lint. That becomes a fire hazard. Good luck

The first thing I would check is the thermal fuse (#6 on the bulkhead parts break down diagram). Replace if it's open.
Also, the manufacturer recommended to replace the cycling thermostat (#8 on the bulkhead parts break down diagram) too if the thermal fuse is open.

- The part number for the thermal fuse AP3132867

- The part number for the cycling thermostat AP3131939

- Here are the break down diagrams for the Roper dryer Model RGX4634KQ2

Sounds like you broke a belt, which is very easy for some of us to replace. If your uncomfortable with gas call a repairman.

Manufactures place alot of safe guards on gas appliances. Please dont be afraid of it, gas is still more efficent at drying than an electric dryer.
