I have a F&P dryer which I have already replaced the heating elements in. Of the four legs that attach to the elements only 3 are showing 120 volts and one of the elements now gets how. My questions is what is causing the 4th leg to be dead?

It's a 240v Heater .. you shouln't be measuring to Neutral ..
You should be measuring 240v AC across each Element.
From your measurements, the leg that is "dead" is either disconnected, OR that Element is bad.

If the dead leg is not disconnected which part is responsible for supply the 120 to all four legs? Is it the control assembly? Just making sure before I order the part. Thanks.
