Question about Roper REX3614KW Electric Dryer

1 Answer

Roper gas dryer works intermittently!

Roper gas dryer works intermittently,
I have checked all the fuses (thermal fuse, high heat cut off fuse and the igniter) but they are good.
Coincidently my timer isn’t working either and got me thinking of the timer contributes to this problem.
The dryer works sometimes (by turning the timer two or three times to get it to work) but only for a few minutes.
Yes, my question is can the timer cause the flame to come on for a few minutes and stopped? (I looked at the igniter; it glowed for few seconds but no flame)
I would appreciate your help.

Thanks

Dryer goes on and spins but no heat. I've opened up the back but what now? Is there a specific part that if blown would cut off the heat? Model is a small one - probably cost about $300 - don't know the...


The thermal cut-off at the top of the heater duct/housing blows when the high-limit thermostat below it fails to cycle the heating element on and off properly to regulate the heater temperature. This thermal cut-off along with high-limit thermostat including the cycling thermostat on the blower housing are wired in series with the heating element and power to it is cut when the thermal cut-off blows as a safety feature to prevent fire. Verify this condition by bypassing the said components. Click on the link below for the detailed instructions in troubleshooting this problem.

Roper electric dryer will not heat after replacing heating element and thermal fuse. what's wrong.


It doesn't necessarily mean the heating element is busted when the dryer stops heating and the thermal fuse is not part of the heating circuit, it is part of the motor circuit. The heating circuit is basically composed of the heating element, thermal cut-off, high-limit thermostat, cycling thermostat, and the motor centrifugal switch. The most common part that causes the dryer not to heat is the thermal cut-off and/or the high-limit thermostat. Verify this condition by bypassing the said components.

You have a bad thermostat, flame sensor, thermal fuse, gas valve solenoids, or the high limit thermostat. Below is a video to walk you thru the diagnostic testing and repair.

I have a roper gas dryer and have replaced the thermal fuse twice, the dryer will heat and dry a load of laundry and then next time i try to use it the dryer doesnt heat what else could my problem be???



Hi

If your dryer is not heating, then check if the power cord is plugged into the wall. It may be loose or disconnected. Inspect the fuses and circuit breakers they may have burned out or tripped. Usually, dryer will still tumble but not create heat if a fuse or a circuit breaker is not working. Now, check whether the heating element in your gas dryer is burned out by using an ohm meter to check for continuity. If the continuity is not there then you would need to replace the element. After checking the element, check out the thermal fuse to see if it's burned out. The thermal fuse is attached to the exhaust duct on the back panel of the gas dryer. It's usually surrounded by a black resin material situated in a housing made of white plastic. If the fuse looks like it

MY ROPER DRYER QUIT HEATING STILLS WORKS NO HEAT


The thermal cut-off , which is the small t-stat looking piece located at the top of the element housing ( on vertical mount elements ) or the far front of the element housing ( on horizontal mount elements ) , is usually the cause for no heat .

The first thing I would check is the thermal fuse (#6 on the bulkhead parts break down diagram). Replace if it's open.
Also, the manufacturer recommended to replace the cycling thermostat (#8 on the bulkhead parts break down diagram) too if the thermal fuse is open.

- The part number for the thermal fuse AP3132867

- The part number for the cycling thermostat AP3131939


- Here are the break down diagrams for the Roper dryer Model RGX4634KQ2

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.
