Brand new dryer wont heat


depending on which model roper dryer it can be a thermal fuse,high-limit thermostat,cycling switch,burned off wire in control panel,check each side of the heating element to ground and find 125 v.a.c. then on the side of the element that has low or no voltage on it to ground start at the element and back track the components leading to the dead leg on the element till you find 125 vac to ground and replace or repair component or wire,then you should get 240 to 250vac across heating element terminals

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 .

How do I replace a heating element in a Roper clothes dryer? I get no resistance across the element with my ohm meter so I assume the element has been broken or burned in two. I can not find a way to...


I am not really familiar with your particular model number but most roper dryers have the heating element in a thin metal housing that is rectangular. The housing is part of the heating element and comes with the new one. Usually you just take the screws out of the outside of the housing and it comes right out. I hope this helps.

My roper dryer REX6634pq0 does not heat!!


there is a thermal overload switch that activates the heating element. This switch will be located in the area of the element itself. It is designed to shut off the element in the event the element itself reaches a temp beyond it's designed temp. It is a safety device. If the switch is out it will not allow the heating element to activate. This switch looks like a silver button and has several wires going to it is about the size of a dime. Replace this switch and you should be good to go

The old element has 3 wires the new element only


You need to take the high limit thermostat off of the old element. It sits over one of the terminals of the heating element, and has two termnals on it. It should just be one screw to take it off.

Electric dryer not heating...works fine, but no heat


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.
