Yep, I have the parts in front of me and the blocking pin is out of the dryer.  Thanks for the question.  I am wondering about the orifice size though.  I have the one stamped 55 which is the LP Propane and one stamped 43; I think maybe they installed an incorrect orifice.  The other one included in the kit says it would be stamped 3/64 and that one is for LP Butane. :thanks:

 How about where the lint filter goes have you clean that out. See attachment Below  Ok i see that you clean vent.  But check for lint build up in the lint duct.

I took the dryer apart today and the gas guy, who installed the orifice without taking the dryer apart put in the 3/64th orifice; the one for LP Butane.  I would not have thought to check this if you guys hadn't got me thinking about the kit, so a HUGE thanks to you!

Now the flame looks entirely different, but it is shutting down after a couple of minutes, so I think the gas valve coils need to be replaced.  While the flame was on, I checked the exhaust heat and it was still barely reaching 120 degrees on high, no load in the dryer, on timed dry. :thanks:

Now that you have the proper orifice in the gas valve, I would recommend you test it with laundry in it before you replace the coils. If it worked ok before it was converted back to natural gas, the coils are most likely good.

The gas valve coils usually are a complete failure or they work OK. My experience is that way .

Yep. They tested fine. Next I checked the thermistor. It is dead. Just have to get access to other temp controls on burner tube to make sure they're okay before I order the thermistor. Anyone recommend replacing sensor strips while doing the thermistor? Can't really check them with tgermistor out.

How did you test the thermistor? It won't measure like a fuse or thermostat. A good thermistor will read approx 12,000 ohms at room temp when measured with an ohm meter. The resistance changes with temperature. The sensor strips are simply 2 strips of metal. Unless one is physically broken, it's ok. Again, I think you should put the dryer back together, wash a load of clothes and try drying them before you start looking for trouble.

He posted it as an HE2. I was guessing the model was wrong. The Kenmore HE2 models use the 8577274  thermistor. Just guessing and assuming here.  ;)
