Hello CaptainAssistan. Welcome to the Gas Appliances topic and the Do-It-Yourself Web Site.

Maytag Neptune gas dryer not any different then any other brand or model. Burner assembly is attached to a mounting plate which is attached to the dryer frame with several small screws.

Once that assembly is removed, the burner tube must be removed. The brass or bronze orifice will be screwed into the burner. Remove that orifice and install the new one. Be sure to switch over the regulator to "LP."

Be sure the electrical power to the appliance is turned off, before attempting any repairs or services. Always check for gas leaks whenever moving the appliance and/or a service or repair includes any connection of a gas part.
