How to connect wires on a roper dryer heating


If memory serves, there are only two wires that connect to the heating element. The two wires are the common and one of the hot leads from the 220-240 volt power source. The center wire coming from the big power cord that plugs into the wall outlet, is the common,. and the other two each provide 110-120 volts AC, which are slightly out of phase with each other.One of them provides 110v to the motor, & control circuits, and the other to the heating element. I f I remember this hook up correctly, it doesn't really matter which wire connects to which terminal, as the element is isolated from the chassis of the dryer. I truly hope this is helpful to you. I've repaired several of these monsters, and haven't had one go to spark & smoke city yet. :)

How to Replace Heating Element from a Maytag Dryer?


The procedure is as follows:--- 1) First of all unplug the dryer from electric outlet for safety reasons.
2) Locate the vent hose on the rear of the dryer and disconnect this hose from dryer unit.
3) The hose is mostly fixed in a metal clamp and the metal clamp is fixed by the screw. Loosen the screw and remove the clamp and remove the hose.
4) The heating element is located in the cabinet.
5) In some models the cabinet is located at the rear of the dryer. And in some model its located in the front of the dryer.
6) Locate the heating element cabinet and remove the screws holding the cabinet.
7) You will see the heating element now. There are wires connecting on the sides of the heating element terminals. The wires are connected by removable connector.
8) Remove the connector carefully from heating element with the help of needle nose plier.
9) After the wires are removed from heating element’s terminals. Remove the screws holding the heating element.
10) The heating will have to be moved a bit to come out easily. Before removing the heating element out. Please note down the position of old heating element. So while placing the new heating element you don’t face any problem.
11) Remove the old heating element and insert the new heating element.
12) Connect all the wires as it were connected before.

ROPER MODEL RED4640YQ0. DRYER WILL NOT HEAT.THERMOSTATS AND HEATING ELEMENT GOOD


What I do is basically remove the drum and look for signs of lint. I clean it all up then check all the components removing a wire from each to get a good read. After you made dang sure all of them thangs have continuity you need to first make sure you have 240 volts going into the machine. The motor on dryers is 120 volt and runs on a separate circuit from the 5000 watt 240 volt heating element. So the dryer will run if the cord is bad or not connect corect OR the circuit breaker is bad OR tripped due to some sort of shorted wiring in the receptacle OR a bad receptacle. So after you know that is fine you gotta check the timer. Find the thick red wire going into the timer from the heating circuit (usually marked RH) remove it from the timer. Set the timer on a heating circuit like cotton or permapress and check between that terminal of the timer and all other terminals on the timer. If you cannot get a reading then your timer is fried inside and is in need of replacement. Google Roper dryer no heat and my video will show up. I did a couple on youtube. Estate dryer also on my youtube channel is a nice video. I have service manuals also on my youtube channel.

Brand new dryer wont heat


depending on which model roper dryer it can be a thermal fuse,high-limit thermostat,cycling switch,burned off wire in control panel,check each side of the heating element to ground and find 125 v.a.c. then on the side of the element that has low or no voltage on it to ground start at the element and back track the components leading to the dead leg on the element till you find 125 vac to ground and replace or repair component or wire,then you should get 240 to 250vac across heating element terminals

The old element has 3 wires the new element only


You need to take the high limit thermostat off of the old element. It sits over one of the terminals of the heating element, and has two termnals on it. It should just be one screw to take it off.

I have a roper electric dryer model # rex3514pqu. The dryer doesn't heat at all and the timer will not move, it stays where I set it. What could cause this problem?


If you have a TIMED cycle,the timer should advance heat or not. In the AUTO dry cycle the timer will not advance without heat. Unplug the dryer. Remove the rear panel of the dryer and check the heat element, relays and thermostats with a volt meter set for ohms. No reading indicates a bad part. Remember to remove at least one wire from each component before testing.

Electric dryer not heating...works fine, but no heat


Hello Friend, Your problem is very simple to fix. You need a thermal fuse and or heater element, both very simple and affordable to replace. Try replacing the thermal fuse first to see if that's the problem. To replace the thermal fuse just remove back cover of dryer and look down where the air blows out. Now, just to the left where all the wires are you will see a white plastic part with two wires plugged into it. This part is called a thermal fuse. Just remove these wires and replace the thermal fuse. If this don't solve your problem you will need to replace the heater element. To replace the heater element, with the back cover off of your dryer just look down and to the right of were the air blows out. You will see the electric heating unit with two fat red wires plugged into it. Unplug these wires and you will see on the sheetmetal housing two screws that hold it on, one on each side. On older elctric dryers there is only one screw that holds element in place, it is on the bottom center of element screwed in from behind. Remove screw(s) and remove old heater element. Now, lay the new element next to the old one and take notice that there is a heat sensor attached to the old element where one of the red wires unplugged from. Gently remove this sensor and install it onto the new element in the same location as the old one. If you have an older electric dryer, the old heater element doesn't have the heat sensor on it, just skip this step. Now, plug in your two red wires and re-install your heater element. Your dryer will run like new. Happy to help, Tim.

Replacing Heater Element in Roper Dryer


before you replace the heater most common cause of heating failure is burn out of the thermal cut-out. (also called thermal fuse, overtemp cutout and probably half a dozen other names) These are a small screw on device on the exhaust duct, when exhaust air reaches too high a temperature, like a blockage, they fail before a fire.
examin the exhaust duct inside the dryer for devices that look like this 641e982.jpg or like this dd7fd44.jpg with wires connected to the terminals. there may be 2(hi lo), test with a ohmmeter -conductivity good, no conductivity replace.
there are only a few different kinds the local parts guy will have them all. take the dud one for him to match.

My Roper Electric Dryer will not heat


i am sending you all the possibilities for your problem, check either of these causes ----and than let me know if it is solved----

Power from the house
Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.


Heating element
Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.


Thermal fuse
On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)


Wiring
A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

What would cause intermittant heating in a Roper Electric Home Dryer?


the dryer vent, not the parts behind the dryer, where it goes into the wall to where the vent leaves the house has lint build up in it. this will cause the element to short cycle cause long dry times. if its really bad ive seen people have to run dryer 3 or 4 times to get clothes dry. clean out vent. this should solve problem
