    thank you for your help. I got it done. It took longer to figure out how to get to the part inside than to change it over. Your answer made it go right along like it should have. You would think that LG would have had some directions. I called them and they told me to get a sevice man.

There is a line from Lg service menu :-

"Notice there is a nut on the adjustment screw. This nut is secured to the thread with a sealing compound. The nut is pre-positioned to the place the valve would be properly adjusted for LP. It’s purpose is to provide a shoulder for positioning the adjustment screw if the dryer is converted from natural gas to propane".

Hope i helped you.

    Thanks for your response!!

    You will need to remove the top first. There are three screws on the back that hold the top on.

    Once the screws are removed the top will slide back so you can lift it off.

    Some of these have double face tape also holding the top. This tape can
    make it hard to slide the top off once the screws have been removed.

    Once the top is off there are screws in the front corners that hold the
    control panel in place. Remove them screws and snap the controls off
    and set aside.

    Once the control panel is off you should be able to see the screws that hold the rest of the front in place.

    The above method is correct for most of the above models.If you find, it does not apply for your model, I need to research your model.

    Let me know the update.

    Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

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.

We just purchased a Lg gas dryer and need someone to come in and put a conversion kit on it to change it to LP gas .. We are having quite a difficult time to try and find someone to do that for us. Can...

actually you as the home owner could do it as it is quite simple... i am a lg servicer in texas or i would run right over and fix you up but all that gets changed is the orfice on the unit and sometimes they will send a new spring for the gas valve. if you call lg up and tell them you need a servicer to do this usually they can look on there list of servicers and recommend one close to you....hope this helps out and good luck

How do I change the orifice on my kenmore dryer from natural to a LP orifice?

More and more, you have to change the gas valve AND the orifice due to the liability issue of changing only the orifice and not doing a complete conversion. If, and this might be a big if, a conversion kit is available, you will need the model # of your dryer to order it. The kit will come with a spring and a tension nut for the gas valve and the orifice you need. Instructions will come with the kit. Follow them to the letter. An improperly installed conversion kit, or just changing the orifice, can be very dangerous. LP operates at a higher pressure than the natural gas the dryer was built to use, and an improper conversion presents a significant fire hazard.

I have Natural gas and am moving where it will be hooked up to lP instead. What do I need to convert to LP from Natural Gas

you will need an L.P. conversion kit. the kit contains a small spring, a new brass orifice and a new brass cap that fits on the gas valve. some kits are minus the spring. you will most likely have to remove the burner to put the new orifice in. any appliance repair store will be able to order you the kit. have model and serial number handy. good luck with your move into the country.

Lg dryer - gas

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.

Lp conversion

You guys like things that go boom. My advice is to get a certified gas tech. To change the orfice to LP you have to take apart the unit from the front.
