Hi.

Try to clean the orifice with the needle and adjust the air /gas mixture by moving the shatter.

Here are the breakdown diagrams and http://www.appliancepartspros.com/bu...g6151xsw1.html

Post the results.

Simon.

Peeked in rear, no access. Removed front. No adjustment provision. Has "square" air ports, 1 on top, other on bottom and 7/64" hole toward inside. Thinking of enlarging 7/64 hole. Any thoughts?

Jumped door switch, started dryer. Had big yellow flame. Removed orfice and it's 091. Conversion kit has 55 for butane, 54 for propane so don't think it's been converted to propane. How are orfices measured/sized?

Really overwhelmed with all the help y'all. Thanx a bunch! Seem to pretty much be talking to myself here 'cept for Simon.
As per Simon's request here's what I did. I plugged up the 091 orfice w/JB Weld, drilled it out w/#54 bit, reinstalled and fired 'er up. Good lookin' mostly blue flame. Put 'er back together and dried clothes. Hope this helps someone down the line. God bless, Dwayne
