Default Electric Dryer will not heat but runs fine!
Model Number: RED4340sq1   Brand: Roper   Age: 1 - 5 years

The dryer runs fine. According to Roper I baught it Arpil, 2008, so in terms of a dryer, it's relatively new.

The problem is that while the motor works well and is still strong, there is not heat coming from the dryer. Can you help with this situation? I am needing to know what I will need to fix it.

You first need to check that you have 120 volts coming to each side of the connection block. You will need a meter to do this.

If you do have current, you will next need to check the thermal fuse/thermostats. If they check out, test the heater for continuity and make certain it is not grounded or broken.

These should solve your problem. Also clean out the venting system while you are in there

Good luck

Also look at the connections. Mine has quit heating a couple of times and the only problem was one of the wires burnt in two. Look at where the wires connect to the heating element and also on the centrifugal switch on the motor.
