Puffs only on ignition or all throughout the flame cycle? If the latter, then check the gas supply tubing installation. Can also use a gauge-type manometer to check gas pressure going to the valve. For LP, gas pressure should be between 11 and 13" w.c.

I do not have a manometer. I will check the regulator at the tank but I would think the gas company would have set the " of WC.

Time to add one to your arsenal. Working on gas appliances without a manometer is like working on electrical circuits without a meter. Here's the kind I use: http://www.amazon.co...g=mrssamskit-20

Manometer reading should tell the tale. Could be a problem with the outside regulator or gas supply.

May be a problem with the gas line run to the dryer. I'm always amazed at the installation Eff-ups I run into. May be perfectly fine. Bottom line, though: without measuring the gas pressure to that specific appliance, you're only left with guessing that the valve is bad.

I went through the lp conversion instructions and found that the whole conversion was not done. The shutter for air adjustment and the alignment collar was not installed. I installed these parts and was able to adjust the flame to eliminate the puffing. The flame is not the flame I am used to seeing (more rigid), but is all blue and the dryer cycles between 120f and 155f at the vent.
The customer said the gas company is coming back out to paint her gas tank. I asked her to have them recheck the regulator pressure at the tank.
Does all this seem to be right? Am I missing anything? Thanks for any pertinent, or non pertinent info. on this fine thursday.
