Question and Answers

Q:

bunner is not working ROPER Dryer-Parts model # RGD4400VQ0

A:

Thank you for your inquiry on your Roper Dryer, Model: RGD4400VQ0. From reviewing the details on your model,Make sure that the gas shut-off valve for the dryer is all of the way open and that the dryer has an adequate gas supply provided to it. This basic troubleshooting step should not be overlooked. Unplug the dryer and remove the bottom front service panel. Carefully plug the dryer back in and start a heated cycle and look at the igniter on the burner assembly to see if it is glowing. Do not touch or make contact with any internal components or wiring inside the dryer cabinet during this test. Shut off the dryer and unplug it as soon as you determine whether the igniter is glowing. The operation of the burner assembly is shown in the first image below. If the igniter is glowing and is then fading out so that the burners will light, then you likely failure is the gas valve coil. You can order a kit that has both coils from the SearsPartsDirect website. If the igniter is not glowing, then you could have a blown thermal fuse. This component is located on the blower housing in the back of the dryer. Unplug the dryer and removes the back panel to access this component. If you pull the wires off of the thermal fuse and tape them together with electrical tape (with the dryer still unplugged), you can then reassemble the dryer and see if the igniter will glow with this fuse bypassed. If the igniter glows with this fuse bypassed, then replacing the thermal fuse will likely fix your heating problem. NOTE: If the thermal fuse was blown, check the exhaust vent duct system for a clog or restriction. An unresolved restriction in exhaust vent airflow could cause the thermal fuse to blow again shortly after it is replaced. If bypassing the thermal fuse did not help, I recommend that you unplug the dryer and restore and continue this bypass process with the high limit thermostat on the side of the heater box and the operating thermostat next to the thermal fuse. Do not leave these components bypassed. Do not access and bypass these components without the dryer unplugged. If you can determine the cause of your drying failure in this manner, you may be able to fix the dryer yourself. NOTE: Do not conduct these tests unless you are completely confident in your technical ability to safely perform the procedures. If you have a volt/ohm meter, you can check the components for continuity instead of bypassing them. If the above components are okay, you could have a failed igniter, a bad flame sensor, a bad motor centrifugal switch, a failed timer contact or a wiring failure in the heating circuit.

Safety Warning: Before beginning the repair, disconnect the direct power supply to the dryer to prevent the risk of injury or any electrical shock.

Caution: Contents inside the washer unit could have sharp edges. Make sure you wear protective gloves during the repair.

If you don’t feel comfortable or confident in this repair, then you can have it repaired at home by a sears technician. I have the included a link to the website: Sears Home Services or call 1-800-469-4663.
