Question about Roper REX4634KQ Electric Dryer
There is a cheap way you can fix this which I have been doing you years!! Yes i said years... First of all the heater elements are expensive so what i did is opened up the back and found the heater element and un screwed it. you see a bunch of springs and you will see that there is a break in the spring. all you need to di is overlap the spring and replace back in. Now replace the back shield and connect back the hose. and plug in. Now each time i do this it last for about a month as long as you don't over fill the dryer. NOW THE DANGEROUS PART! I have had to do this so many times that i no longer put the shield back on so i can easily get back to the element and patch it which does leave me open to lint getting into the coils and burning up..... This has never happened be aware of this. THE BEST THING I EVER DID FOR THIS DRYER IS TAKE A BLOWER AND BLOW FAST AIR INTO THE HOLE IN THE WALL AND THIS HELPED SO MUCH!! THERE WAS A LINT STORM IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD BUT THIS HELPED A LOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
*** UNPLUG THE DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING *** PLEASE
remember it would be bad business to make the element last forever but you can extend the life for years doing this!!

Most common cause is burn out of the thermal cut-out. These are a small screw on device on the exhaust duct, when exhaust air reaches too high a temperature, like a blockage, they fail before a fire.
Clean the exhaust ducts all the way to the outside wall, lots of vent hoods block over time. then examin the exhaust duct for devices that look like this or like this with wires connected to the terminals. there may be 2(hi lo), test with a flashlilight bulb or meter conductivity good, no conductivity replace.
there are only a few different kinds the local parts guy will have them all. take the dud one for him to match.
