Question about Dryers
This gas dryer was converted to propane and now I need to change it back. How is this done?
You should contact your local appliance parts retailer and provide them with the complete model number and serial number, and they can find the conversion kit for that dryer.
It should include instructions and a orifice kit for the gas valve, and instructions on adjusting the gas pressure regulator.
Please rate this solution if it helps you with your problem... Thanks

If you do not have the original orifice you will have to order a natural gas orifice and replace the LP one with it. It is just a small brass threaded part with the correct size hole in it, located right at the end of the burner. For a LG dryer it is probably part number 4948EL4001B but you should get your model number from the sticker just inside the door and order the correct part from your nearest servicing dealer. You can find LG servicer's in the US on line at http://us.lgservice.com/index_b2c.jsp

Take 3 screws out of bottom side of Z shaped metal part on the back of the dryer's top. Stand in front of dryer and use the palms of your hands to sharply push dryer top back about 2 inches and lift top off. Open door and remove screw at 4 and 8 O'Clock position. Remove control panel (ususally 2 screws and a bunch on retaining plastic parts along the top side) and set on top of dryer or unplug electrical plugs and set aside. Remove screws at top of front panel. Unplug light bulb and door switch. Tilt front panel forward and lift off bottom tabs, then unplug moisure sensor wire at bottom, allowing front panel to be set aside. Remove 4 screws at sides of drum support assembly, lift up and off. Release belt, and remove drum. (easier to do if flat metal part originally right behind control panel is removed first) Use belt as a handle and lift drum out of dryer, allowing access to burner assembly. Change burner orfice and regulator blocker. Re-assemble and test.
