I have a Roper dryer that is not heating. The last time this happened
the serviceman replaced the cheap little fuse.
This time I checked the fuse for continuity, it was OK. After reviewing
the repairclinic.com website, I also checked the
heating element for continuity, again OK.
Is there suppose to be continuity across the "Hi Limit STAT" or across
the "Thermal Cut off"? Currently across the STAT
there is no continuity and across the Thermal Cut off there is continuity.
Anything else that I can check?
Should always check the heating element, thermostats and venting when
ever the thermal fuse lets go.
Q - My electric dryer runs but will not heat, what could stop my dryer
