Roper EL5030V Electric Dryer

Start switch blew and then my wife God bless her, when taking the top off didn't unplug it, and she let the hot wire touch metel and blew the circuit breaker. I replaced it AND the Start switch. There is still no current to the start switch as it did not work and I checked it with a voltage meter. What else could it be? Is there a fuse downline? Thanks for your help.

The start button does nothing

Start buttons seldom fail, but door switches fail often.
Have someone good at this open the lid and bypass the door switch, it should start fine.
Door switches can be bought at Amazon or "Sears Parts Direct" or e-bay.
God bless your efforts.

I have a Roper Mod:REX4634JQO Electric Dryer. The Dryer does not fully heat up on any of the cycles. I have to run the cycle twice, sometimes 3 times (50 minutes each time) to dry my cloths. Any ideas of...

either your heating coil is damaged or you have a bad resistor in the back of the panel ...any tech can take a look and tell...the resistors run about 20.00 the coils on the other hand may turn out to be as high as 200.00 plus labor..hopefully it is the resistor..GOD bless

Roper dryer wont start

Check your 220 outlet for voltage. 115 won't do. Then remove back
and check cutoff (hi-limit) Safety switch usually at the top
of the element. This safety switch is very small about the size of
a marble. If you don.t know how to Ohm it then remove the
two plug in wires and attach them together. Then it should start.
Take the safety to an appliance parts house and get a new on,install it and that should do it. You should also replace the
thermostat at the bottom of the element (comes in the new package),Too to prevent a reoccurrence.

I checked the power and the fuse, I opened the back of the dryer and checked the start button. The dryer won't tumble or heat up. Any ideas?

There is a thermal fuse located on the blower housing. It is small white plastic with 2 wires attached to it. This is usually the cause. If not this the door switch may be bad. Open the door and check to make sure you hear a click when pushing the small lever for the door switch.

Roper Dryer won't heat

check the upper and lower limit switches on the heating duct. they act like fuses and and pop if the go bad. to check. first unplug dryer then remove back panel. the heat tube should be on the right and have two disc looking things with two wires going to them. check top one first. pull wires off and with jumper wire connect the two wires together. now plug dryer in and check to see if it heats. if not check the lower one. do not run dryer for longer then i takes to see if coils heat up. if still no heat then u need to pull heating element off and check for an open in the coil.
