Question about Roper RGX4634KQ Gas Dryer
ROPER DRYERS ARE MADE BY WHIRLPOOL. ON ALL CURRENT DRYERS, THERE IS A THERMAL FUSE THAT WILL
DISABLE A DRYER IF AN OVERHEATING PROBLEM OCCURS. THE THERMAL FUSE IS GENERALLY A SMALL WHITE ITEM FOUND IN THE REAR OF THE MACHINE, DOWN
ON THE EXHAUST DUCT BEHIND THE BACK PANEL. THERE ARE TWO WIRES ATTACHED TO IT. IF YOU DON'T HAVE A METER TO CHECK IT, FIND SOMETHING THAT IS INSULATED
ELECTRICALLY TO SHORT THE TWO WIRES TOGETHER.
IF THE THERMAL FUSE IS BAD, THE DRYER WILL RUN WITH THE TWO WIRES SHORTED TOGETHER. REPLACE THE THERMAL FUSE. ALSO, CHECK TO MAKE SURE THAT THE DOOR SWITCH LEVER ISN'T BROKEN OFF. IT IS LOCATED IN THE UPPER RIGHT CORNER OF THE OPENING OF THE DRYER WHEN YOU OPEN THE DOOR. THE DOOR SHOULD
PUSH IT BACKWARDS WHEN YOU CLOSE THE DOOR.
TRY PUSHING IT WITH YOUR FINGER. YOU SHOULD HEAR IT CLICK. IF NOT, REPLACE THE DOOR SWITCH.
EITHER PART SHOULDN'T COST MORE THAN 30 DOLLARS.
