    You need to check the incoming gas pressure to make sure its not to high. You may have 2lb gas and need a reducing gas regulator at the dryer

    I would check the vent again, make sure you have really good air flow, and the vent is not too long, newer gas dryers have pressure switches in them that shuts the gas off if there is too much pressure in the vent.

    Eather you are buying crap used ones or maybe you should change the brand. Make sure also that you have the correct type of gas....NG vs Propane
