Hey, guys. My Roper, Model RES7648EQ2 just stopped heating up. Should I just assume that it's the heating element, and can you point me in the direction of a good troubleshooting/walkthrough?

Thanks so much in advance.

Well, I tested the thermal fuse, which was fine, and my element had read 9 on the losest setting of resistance. My high-level thermostat is fine, too. I guess I'll check the cycling thermostat, but I don't like the way this is going...

Have you checked if there is 240VAC to the dryer?

No, but I'm not sure how. I'll google it. Thanks a lot!

Yes, it's 240VAC. It's not making any damn sense...I noticed, though, that it shuts off when you turn it to the end part of the auto-dry cycle.

Sorry, I meant that it is getting the proper voltage, like 249.

And it shuts off at the wrinkle prevent of the auto-sense dry cycle. This is infuriating.

Hi.

Here what you need to do:
- with dryer turned to heat check if there is 240VAC across the heating element (if yes - replace it)
- with unit unplugged check continuity of the thermal cutoff, operating thermostat, hi-limit thermostat (replace if needed).
-with unit unplugged open the control panel, set the timer to Timed-regular and check continuity TM-OR,BK-R,T-W.
- If everything checks out OK then most likely the motor switch contacts 1M-2M not closing.

Here are the breakdown diagrams and Bulkhead parts for Roper RES7648EQ2 - AppliancePartsPros.com

Post the results.

Simon.
