GE gas dryer burning with a high orange flame

I have just bought a GE gas dryer model# GTD42GASJWW. I used it hooked up to propane less than 10 times. We have converted it now using the lp conversion kit. However, the fire is burning bright orange and the flames lick past the cylinder tube. We have opened the air flow all the way from half and no change in the flame. I couldnt imagine anything broken on the dryer or needing replacement as it is only 3mos old. Please help. Thanks!!

Welcome to the forums.

I'm not quite following you. Did you buy a natural gas dryer and convert it to LP ?
Did you change the orifice to the LP orifice ?
Did you replace the regulator adjuster pin ?
Did you have the gas pressure checked ?

This link has a video explaining the conversion.
