Roper gas dryer will not heat. Igniter?


Hi there,

Well if your dryer tumbles, but there is no heat then you may please check out the following -
1. First of all you can check out for proper air flow - Check the vent for proper air flow by placing your hand over the exterior vent while the dryer is running. You should feel a strong flow of air. If not then check the lint trap. It is located either on top of the dryer or possibly just inside the door. Remove any lint that has built up in the lint trap. Cleaning the lint trap should be done regularly, even as often as after every load. Do not operate the dryer without a lint trap in place.
2. Secondly you can check out the Ignitor - gas dryer blows air through a burner assembly to heat the air. The burner assembly consists essentially of a gas valve, ignitor and a flame sensor. If any part of the burner assembly malfunctions, the result will be low or no heat and slow drying of the clothes.
Post comments for further help or information.....

Good Luck!!

Thanks for using FixYa!!

I have a roper dryer. I took it apart today


Remove all duct work connected to this dryer. Clean thoroughly. You will find amass of lint inside of it causing your problem. If not the moister sensor is not working properly and needs to be replaced.
I do hope you will find a clogged vent tube for it is easier to clean the tube than to replace the sensor. The sensor is a fail safe part. It keeps the dryer from catching on fire when the lint tube is clogged up

My lint screen has no lint on it after drying a load. it also takes more than 1 cycle to dry. I have checked venting and it is clear. Heating element seems to be working, gets hot and goes off, comes back...


generically: Danger Will Rogers Danger...Better try to get inside the cabinet and check the venting....
..possibilities:
Vent pathway plugged (hence no lint) and lint backing up inside cutting flow and thermal sensor shutting down heating element.
..Vent hose in hole of cabinet but not connected to duct inside cabinet and lint is just filling cabinet. (common reason for premature heating element failure--3 times for my aunt fixed by tech--before I saw the vent hose connected only to the cabinet)
...both of the above is a hazard and can burn out the heating element.
..might possiblly be able to back blow through the vent hole and/or lint trap with a shopvac/vacuum cleaner (try **** and blow); but if works still need to verify that air pathways are clear and vent hose connected properly inside--should be fairly obvious inside.
...hope helps

Dryer takes longer and longer to dry


The dryer vent may be partially blocked. First of all check the outdoor end of the vent to make sure it is not covered with something, in the north snow is often the culprit. If that end is clear, pull out the dryer and disconnect the vent pipe from the dryer then check inside with a flashlight to make sure it is clear. Remove any built up lint. that should do it.

Roper gas dryer not heating


DEAR FRIEND,
ngfam1 here for you!
I am happy to be of assistance!

CHECK THE LINT FILTER IS CLEAN AND CLEAN IT AFTER EVERY LOAD1
BUT IF THE VENT THAT LEADS OUTSIDE IS CLOGGED IT MAY CAUSE THIS .
IN THE OUTSIDE OF THE HOUSE THERE IS USUALLY A SCREEN AT THE VENT POINT THAT STOPS ANIMALS FROM ENTERING THIS VENT. GO LOOK AND CHECK THAT IT'S CLEAR AND FREE OF WADES OF LINT THAT MAY BE BLOCKING THE AIR OUT FLOW.
THIS WOULD STOP IT FORM DRYING AND GETTING HOT ENOUGH TO DO THE JOB! IF THERE IS A DOOR THAT FLAPS OPEN OUT SIDE AT THIS SAME LOCATION WHEN THE DRYER GOES ON, CHECK THAT IT IS HANGING LOOSELY AND NOT STUCK CLOSED!
OTHERWISE YOU WILL NEED SERVICE!

Here is a good service that I recommend to my customers,
