Question about Roper RGK2951W Gas Commercial Dryer
ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Check to make sure you are getting full 220 Volt power to the dryer, if you are then:
Sounds like your problem may be with the heating coil. Remove the back/or front just under the door of the machine and try to locate the air duct going from the blower to the drum. Normally inside/outside the air duct you will find the heating coil and the thermostats/thermistors. Once you have located the heating coil, remove the two wires from it and check the coil with an ohm meter across the two terminals of the coil.
You should read continuity across the terminals, if not you will need to replace the coil as it is faulty.
If the heating coil is ok, then:
You can check the thermostat/thermistor one at a time by removing the two wires and taping them together with electrical tape or with an ohm meter to test the thermostat/thermistor. (Should have/show continuity)
If the coil heats up then replace the thermostat/thermistor.
(Thermal fuse.If it overheats the dryer will not operate. It's located on the blower housing. It cannot be reset. A vent clogged with lint can cause it to overheat. You can test it with an Ohm meter or continuity checker, if no continuity, replace it)
DO NOT LEAVE THE WIRES TAPED TOGETHER AFTER THE TEST.
This could cause a FIRE, as you have removed the safety of overheat from the machine.

Investigate these five areas if your dryer is not heating up:
If your dryer won't heat up, it's possible that it is
not being supplied with the proper voltage. Here are three ways to make
sure power is getting to your dryer: First, make sure your dryer is
plugged in. Next, check the circuit breaker panel to make sure all the
circuit breakers are in the correct positions. Finally, check to make
sure no fuses in your fuse panel are blown. Any of these could explain
why power is not getting to your dryer.
It is possible that your dryer isn't heating because
its heating element is defective. Heating elements are irrepairable. If
yours has ceased to function properly, you will have to replace it. Open
your dryer's cabinet and locate the heating element so that you can
