Does anyone know the size stamped on the orifice for natural gas for the burner for a Kenmore HE2 dryer model 11087992100.  The literature with the LP conversion kit specifies that the Propane LP orifice is a No. 55 and the Butane LP orifice is a No 3/64.
I have an orifice that is stamped with a No 43 also.

Here's a little Youtube video showing the removal:


Natural Gas Oriface is labeled #42 (43 should not make that much of difference)
Propane Gas Oriface is labeled #54


Hope this helps.

Thanks for the info and video.  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 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:
