Dryer will not turn off automatically

I just replaced the Thermal cutoff on my Roper Dryer and now the timer stays stuck on the setting and will not turn off automatically. Do I have a wire crossed?

Have roper electric dryer. That will not start. Have replaced thermostat and thermal cutoff. Checked the power and it is getting pwer to dryer. Any suggestions?


Hello,

What is most likely the problem is the THERMAL FUSE which when it has gone out will cut power to the motor as opposed to the thermal cutoff and thermostat which controls ONLY the heat and has no bearing on the motor.
The thermal fuse is the housing where the lint filter fits into at the bottom of it, it's white in color and oval shaped check and replace it and the dryer will start very likely

Roper dryer res7648kq0, replaced heat element, thermal fuse, cycling thrm, thermal kit, checked outlet, circuit breaker, still not heat, will not advance on AUTO, but will on timed cycle. Now what?


Wow.
In electric dryers with an AUTO cycle; the heater runs on 220 volts, but the timer motor runs on 110 volts. There is a resistor in the system to cut down the voltage. If the resistor is bad, you will see the same symptoms as if a thermostat was bad. The timer motor will not run in the automatic cycle. You need to make sure that you test for continuity in the resistor.
I've looked at two parts diagrams for your washer and cannot find a sensor anywhere in either, so the thermostat is what tells the timer to advance once the dryer reaches a preset temperature.
The thermostat will only tell the timer to advance if the dryer reaches the proper temperature, if you have some clogging in the vents, the dryer may never reach the proper temperature, and thus not advance on the auto cycle. but i'm sure you've probably checked that. I'm baffled. Let me know how it pans out if you can. Thanks. I'm still trying to find a wiring diagram for that model.

thanks,

Mike

I have a roper dryer red4440sq0 that will not turn on.. I have checked all power its going to the dryer and hitting what it needs to hit and suggestions?


I bought this dryer 2 years ago. After exactly 1 year, the heat stopped working completely. It turned out to be the Thermal Cutoff device ($20). Then, just last week, the thing stopped working completely. It took me all of 10 minutes to determine that it was the Thermal Fuse (http://www.appliancepartspros.com/part_details.aspx?part_id=3132867), just by using my continuity detector on the two terminals. I unhooked the terminal wires, stuck them together, and the dryer turned on fine. They count on people buying new dryers completely whenever one of these dinky little parts made by child laborers in Asia fail. The fuse is $10 at the site I just linked.

Dryer gets to hot


Start with the vent, make sure it's not kinked or squished behind the machine and that the outside vent is not clogged with lint. You should feel air blowing freely to the outside.
If the vent is ok, turn the timer to any on position without starting it. Wait 10-20 seconds and then check if there's heat inside the dryer.
If yes, the element has a short and therefore always stays on. Replace it.
If no, run the dryer for a few minutes and listen for the clicking of the relay which cycles the element.
If there is no clicking sound, check the hi limit thermostat & thermal cutoff for continuity and replace if necessary.
If those seem ok, it could be the motor (centrifugal switch inside) or the timer (shorted contact).
Good luck!

Roper dryer won't shut off


The timer motor isn't moving the timer. You'll need to replace the timer. Turning the timer **** to off should stop the machine.
Exception: If the shutting the door automatically starts the motor, then the start switch/relay is probably shorted.

Dryer won heat timer dosen't avance


huntman, the model posted shows as a gas dryer. In the lower left side there is a square plastic peep hole. Take a putty knife and pull it off. Set the dryer to high heat and take a look in the hole. Does the ignitor glow? If it doesn't you either have a bad thermal fuse or a bad ignitor. Start with the thermal fuse. You will have to remove the back panel to get at it. I will attach a photo. You can ohm it out, or just jump the wires temp. to see if the ignitor glows. If theral fuse is good and the ignitor does glow, you probabley have a bad set of coils. These sit on the gas valve are easy to replace. The timer won't advance without the heat. Check this out first...Catriver..post back.
