    How do I convert a propane clothes dryer to natural gas?
    I bought a propane gas clothes dryer and installed a conversion kit from the manaufacturer. My house connection already had a connection for my old natural gas dryer but when I connected the new dryer it is not getting gas and won't start. My inlet pipe has 2 psig regulator in line. What am I doing wrong? I opened the inlet line and only got a small amount of gas out. Do I need to get a different regulator? Is there ea nother problem I haven't addressed which keeps it from lighting. HELP!

    It does take a number of false starts to remove all of the air in the lines.

    Tom, I think its important to reread the instruction for that converter installation. Dryer arrive set up for NG and the converter makes them into propane. You should be able to simply remove the kit you installed.
