Question about Roper REX4634KQ Electric Dryer
If the orange glow is coming from the right hand side (as viewed from the REAR of the dryer), that would be the heating element. The element is supposed to glow, but not continuously. It should cycle on and off as the thermostats regulate the drum temperature based on your dryer settings. If you are experiencing any problems, such as longer dry times, or poor drying efficiency, you may want to check the dryer interior cabinet and/or the entire exhaust ducting from where it exits your dryer to the point where it leaves your home to ensure you have no kinks or clogs. The following link explains many of the common problems that can cause poor drying efficiency and longer dry times:
Before assuming you have a problem with the appliance, check your installation to ensure you are providing the dryer with proper exhaust and air flow. A dryer in a clogged state or having improper air flow will not dry efficiently and will cause the heating circuits to overheat. This will make the dryer seem hotter than its supposed to be and eventually can lead to component failures and is the source of many fire hazards.
If the problem is not heating element related, please stop using the dryer and UNPLUG it. Remove the cover where the power cord is installed and ensure all the connections are snug and the wires are not burned. Post back and let me know if you need further assistance. I hope you find this information helpful.
