Major Appliances/Roper Dryer Heating problem


Roper Dryer Model #RGD440VQ1
The auto-timer will not advance, the 30 minute timer works just not heating.
There is flame when the dryer starts but when it goes to relight it just will glow but no flame. If you stop the dryer for 10 minutes, and then start it, the cycle is the same. Flame lights till warm then will not relight. It glows every couple minutes but no flame.

Replace the dryer safety coils and you will be fine.  They are shorting out as they heat up and will not come back on until cooled.  Part number is SAFETY COIL and your cost is 24.95 + 6.49 shipping in the United States.  Should you choose to order, follow this link to our website where you can scroll down and fill out the secure order form to process your order.  If you have any problems, concerns or need further information, feel free to reply to this email or for Parts Order Only, call 570-622-6441.  Keep in mind ordering through us helps continue this free on-line help available for you and many others.  Help those that help you.
