I installed an LP kit in my dryer and the flame is erratic.

Customer Question

I installed an LP kit in my dryer and the flame is erratic. It rolls out of the combustion chamber and trips the safety. I tried adjusting the shutter. I called White Rogers and they confirmed that the valve will work on LP gas with regards ***** ***** column pressure. What else can I do?

I do not show that is a good part number.

Whom did you purchase the part from?

Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 9 months ago.

I`m going to opt out in hopes some one else can assist you.

I do not find LPKIT-3/XAA as a good part number .

And the parts break down for DV231AGW/XAA does not show an L/P orifice kit

Hello a new expert here. So you installed the new kit and you said the flame is erratic now? Did you put the part on right? Is anything loose or get disconnected while doing this? It is the correct part for your unit by the way.
