Home Plumbing Tips

Plumbing is a learned skill, and often mistakes are made because the home handyman does not have the knowledge of the proper tools, compounds or pipe for the job. All plumbing systems get clogs eventually and a lot of time can be saved on a plumbing job if you follow a few simple rules. You can fix the plumbing problem by yourself if you have the right tools, know the technique, and you are prepared to do it. The tools aren’t all that expensive, and sometimes can be rented, but if after a few attempts you can’t get the clog loose, call a San Diego professional plumber.

Can a Kenmore 97282100 dryer for natural gas, be converted to work on propane for a reasonable cost, let's say <$100?


If you do it yourself, it absolutely CAN be done for much less than that. The conversion kit basically consists of changing the orifice/s on the burner/s, changing the spring in the gas valve and setting the proper gas pressure. Most all kits come with basic instructions. Make sure you use a gas approved pipe thread compound (pipe dope) to prevent leaks.

If you hire an appliance repair tech or a handyman with good solid appliance skills you could expect to pay anywhere from $75 to $150 for the job.
You can likely save some money by having the kit on hand for the tech. (let them know when you schedule the job, so they won't have to track down the kit for your unit.)
