Roper EL5030V Electric Dryer

Start switch blew and then my wife God bless her, when taking the top off didn't unplug it, and she let the hot wire touch metel and blew the circuit breaker. I replaced it AND the Start switch. There is still no current to the start switch as it did not work and I checked it with a voltage meter. What else could it be? Is there a fuse downline? Thanks for your help.

The start button does nothing


Start buttons seldom fail, but door switches fail often.
Have someone good at this open the lid and bypass the door switch, it should start fine.
Door switches can be bought at Amazon or "Sears Parts Direct" or e-bay.
God bless your efforts.

The top of my get dryer is extremely hot, the dryer is turned off. The only way to cool in down is unplug it. As soon as I plug in back in it gets hot.


the only way that machine is hot is by two alternatives:

se the diagram a) The contacts L/H is closed all the time, they are NOT open, this close one side of the heating element b) The centrifugal switch of the motor is defective, remain closed all the time and NOT open, this close one side of the heating element.

God bless you

Roper dryer wont start


Check your 220 outlet for voltage. 115 won't do. Then remove back
and check cutoff (hi-limit) Safety switch usually at the top
of the element. This safety switch is very small about the size of
a marble. If you don.t know how to Ohm it then remove the
two plug in wires and attach them together. Then it should start.
Take the safety to an appliance parts house and get a new on,install it and that should do it. You should also replace the
thermostat at the bottom of the element (comes in the new package),Too to prevent a reoccurrence.

I checked the power and the fuse, I opened the back of the dryer and checked the start button. The dryer won't tumble or heat up. Any ideas?


There is a thermal fuse located on the blower housing. It is small white plastic with 2 wires attached to it. This is usually the cause. If not this the door switch may be bad. Open the door and check to make sure you hear a click when pushing the small lever for the door switch.

Kenmore model 80 electric dryer won't start


sounds like you have a heating element that is touching ground somewhere ie bracket frame wall etc. possibly blew the little white fuse in the back with the 2 blue wires on it or door switch broke. but always reset the breakers just to be sure.

Roper Dryer won't heat


check the upper and lower limit switches on the heating duct. they act like fuses and and pop if the go bad. to check. first unplug dryer then remove back panel. the heat tube should be on the right and have two disc looking things with two wires going to them. check top one first. pull wires off and with jumper wire connect the two wires together. now plug dryer in and check to see if it heats. if not check the lower one. do not run dryer for longer then i takes to see if coils heat up. if still no heat then u need to pull heating element off and check for an open in the coil.
