Thanks for using FixYa. It seems to be the issue with the Thermal Fuse going bad and needs to be replaced. It is mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. Also, often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

    Thank for your response. How do I find the Thermal Fuse and Heating Element? What do I need to do to replace them? And where can I find replacement parts?

    Thanks for accepting the solution. You can check this link for the parts and diagrams. The thermal fuse is located on the blower wheel cover inside the back cover panel.

I have model REX3514PQ0 that I purchased from Lowe's in 2005. It is a Heavy Duty, Extra Large Capacity, 3 Cycle dryer. The dryer will turn on and will blow but only cold air. A friend suggested I check...

There are three switches :: high heat thermostat, low heat thermostat, and thermal limit switch.

Could the the thermal limit switch is opened because the dryer overheated -- these cannot be reset -- need replacing.

Could also be a faulty heating element. To test these components you'll need an ohmmeter (multi-meter) and will need to remove the back of the dryer.

More info, let me know.

I have a Roper Dryer Model #REX3514PQ0 and it's about 5 or six years old. I was drying my laundry. The first load dryed fine. One the second load I notice that the setting nob up top was not moving and...

What I would do is pull the dryer out and unplug the power cord. I would remove the rear cover and check the components back there for continuity.f08dda1.jpg83a4f65.jpg15ccca9.jpgIf all of that is good then the timer or breaker might be bad. Why? The timer calls for heat through the RH leg. The amp draw from the heating element arcs up the contact point inside the timer. The motor runs on 120 volts the heater runs on 240 volts. So the breaker will take a beating on the heater side of it. The dryer will hower still run. To recap It could be the heater the limits the time or an electrical problem.6db32c2.jpga2de035.jpg

What would the value be of my used Roper REX3514PQ0 dryer?

Usually a little less than half of original price paid as new, on working appliances, that is. I would advertise the bad one as free, with the purchase of the running one. You should do well with these on craigs list.
