Needed to convert from LPG to Natural Gas
Two parts were needed in order to convert the dry back to Natural Gas. Part Select is usually good, but dropped the ball completely on this one. I received the correct Orifice, but was not asked or told about the need for the part for the regulator so the gas pressure would be changed back to Natural Gas. I found one at a local supplier and finished the switch. I chose to change the belt while in there because the dryer sounded like the belt had a chunk missing with the rhythmic thump. After installing the new, I found that one of the tumble paddles had a penny flopping inside it. One thump per revolution. This is the first in my career that the technician had not left the original orifice and regulator cap attached to the dryer.

I need to convert this model from propane to natural gas. Is the only thing i need is an orifice? If so, what is the part number. Thanks!
For model number LG7681XSW1

Hi Mike, Thank you for your question. Yes you will need to replace your orifice, but you will also need to replace your natural gas cap on your regulator as well. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

I have a Kenmore 110.70722990 Dryer that is currently set up for LP. I need to convert back to Natural Gas - Do I need only a new Natural Gas Orifice and the Natural Gas Limiter to accomplish this? Is there any other component needed to convert back to Natural Gas? Thank You.

For model number LGR4634EQ3

Hi Jason, Thank you for your question. You will also need your limiter. I have linked that part down below for you. You would need both the limiter and the orifice. I would also suggest keeping your LP parts just in case you ever change back in the future. Good luck with your repair.
