I'm converting my natural gas dryer over to LP gas. I've changed the orifice but it is saying to close the regulator. It says the same thing with Natural gas but that doesn't make sense because it isn't...

I know from working on piles of restaurant equipment, that when you change over from natural to propane, you have to change the orifices and the regulator. Most natural gas equipment needs 3.5-4.0" of W.C. (that is, water column) and most propane gas equipment needs 9.0-11.0" W.C. The density and specific gravity of the gases are different. If it is glued so as you can not make any adjustments to the pressure, change the regulator to a propane one. Most natural gas regulators can not be adjusted to the propane pressure needed. Please be careful as working with gas can be dangerous. Natural gas is usually lighter than air and will rise but propane is heavier and will "pool" or "puddle" in low areas and can cause explosions in the right circumstances.

I DO NOT HAVE NATURAL GAS AVAILAABLE WHERE I LIVE/

You can order an LP conversion kit to change it over to propane. Most kits cost between 30 and 60 dollars, and require you to take the drum out of the dryer to access the gas valve for the change over.

Amana NDG2335AWW Gas dryer LP or Natural?

If there are no stickers indicating so, you will need to open up the dryer and measure the gas orifice. A propane orifice should be either a #54 or #58.

I have a Whirlpool gas dryer. I have gone from a natural gas hook-up to propane. Is there anything I need to do different for that natural gas installation?

You will need to change the gas discharge jets on the burner so that the burner gets the proper mixture of gas and air. Propane accessory stores should be able to furnish a conversion kit.
