The thermal fuse is likely blown. Disconnect power then remove the rear panel to access the thermal fuse on the blower housing.

Once the panel is off, bypass the thermal fuse by joining the wires together then insulate them properly. Reconnect power and start the dryer. The thermal fuse is indeed blown if the dryer starts. Replace it including the cycling thermostat.

Have a rope model red4440vq1 electric dryer. it is about 5 months old. the the dryer is heating but not spinning


Aha Broken belt. You would need to get inside the machine to investigate the problema. If you were drying some big old tennis shoes that would knock the belt off. I have a pictorial on this with a manual and a nice video prepared by Repair Clinic HERE

Replace belt on roper Mod 7646kq2 dryer


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
If you have to replace your drum belt and if you have a front loading machine.
Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch or other connections.
Remove the lint filter screws and filter.
Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt and drum, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley. Pay attention to the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt and drum.
Sometimes the belt will slip off of the idler arm or motor causing the drum not to turn.
While you have the drum out, I would recommend that you lubricate the drum rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil. This will save you a problem later with the rollers getting noisy, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a noise like a thumping type noise. You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.
Please rate me
Good luck,
I hope this helps
Thank you

The dryer does not turn over and makes a buzzing sound like the motor is stuck. Replaced the bad motor which was frozen and it still makes the same sound


open the door and spin the drum,if the drum won't spin you have something stuck in the blower wheel or the belt is getting jammed up somehow.next time send model number.also you can pull the drum and belt and jump out the door switch with a piece of wire and see if the motor runs,if not you have a bad motor,stick the wire into the two outside holes on the door switch harness i believe the middle is the ground,like i said if the motor doesn't run it's most likely bad,you can also check with a meter to see if you're getting 120 volts to the motor to make sure

I have a Roper Dryer Model REX3514PQO. The dryer


Sounds like you have a broken drum belt.
If you have to replace your drive belt and if you have a front loading machine.
First you will need to unplug your dryer from the electric.
Remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt and drum, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley.
While you have the drum out, I would also recommend that you lubricate the drum rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil. This will save you problem later with the rollers getting noisy, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a noise like a thumping type noise. You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.
If the belt is not broken, then I would check to see if the timer switch is working properly, if not then you may need to replace it.
Good luck,
I hope this helps

The belt broke drum won't turn


Hello Friend, Replacing a dryer belt is very simple. Just remove front of dryer cabinet. unplug wires from dryer door switch. Just slide a new belt over the drum with the belt grooves facing to the inside. Underneath drum you will see a tention wheel next to motor. Install belt around tention wheel and around motor shaft pully. Re-install front dryer cabinet. Make sure to plug in the wires to the door switch and make sure that the drum is re-inserted back over the felt glide on inner cabinet front. Happy to help, Tim.
