SOURCE: No heat
The most common cause of no heat to an otherwise functioning dryer is failure of the thermal cutout.
As well as the electric line fuses in the circuit there are devices that look like this or this screwed to the exhaust air duct with wires to the terminals
, inside the dryer. If there is a lint blockage in the duct or fan or outside vent hood, the air tempoerature rises and melts out this thermal cutout (also thermal fuse, heat protector, heat cutout & any other names different makers use) before causing a fire.
Test with an ohmmeter or battery and lamp bulb, conducts good, no conducts fail-replace.
Despite the number of models of dryer there are only a few thermal fuses, and the local parts guy WILL have the blown one on the shelf, as GE if not as roper part.
Whil the dryer case is opened is a good time to vacuum out the exhaust vents, fan impeller, and vent hood. ounce of prevention and all that

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 .

SOURCE: I have a roper dryer
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 apwagner.com 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.
