All the electronic parts associated with my roper dryer (element, cycline thermostat, high temp sensor,temp therm fuse, switch)have continuity, however my dryer element refuses to heat up at all. What am I missing ? I have replaced the element with a new one, same result. I have checked all the sensors electrictrically as well as heat sensitive one with heat. Im stumped.
ANSWER Hi Larry. Your model has a resister in line from the orange wire at the timer going to the heater. Check it for 4050-4950 Ohms. If it is without 10% of the value then replace it. Part # 279872. Then you need to check the Red wire at the motor while running to see if it has 120 vac output. This is the supply voltage from the motor centrifugal switch inside the motor. If not it is part # 279827. You have a wiring diagram in behind the timer area to assist you. Thank You.
