SOURCE: My Dryer will only work if I hold start button, when I release start button the dryer stops.

Anra, this is a classic symptom of a failed even heat board. I've seen a lot of these failures out there. Easy to change out. Check out this link. Catriver..post back http://www.repairclinic.com/0080.asp

SOURCE: Dryer wont stay running

Either the motor relay, or if this is an evenheat dryer, the evenheat control board could be bad.

SOURCE: dryer won't stay on unless I hold the start button down. When I let go of the start button, it stops.

most likely the evenheat board is bad, but it could be the motor relay, get under the console and check the trouble shooting wiring diagram. there are several checks you can do to narrow it down.

Brand new roper dryer MOD RGD4440VQ1, Its gas and has a LP fitting how to change the LP fitting to PRopane. I have the conversion kit but can't find out how to install it


According to the roper site you may not change to LP gas yourself. You will need to get a licensed LP technician to make the conversion. The reason why is that they will need to adjust the flow of the Lp so that the dryer will work right. If you do not get a Lp technician to do the work then you will for fit the warranty on the Dryer.

Dryer starts when start button is pressed and held but will not stay running when button is released


there is a holding contact at the motor wiring, check the schematics and trace that holding contact. it should hold the motor running as soon as it starts.
