Bought conversion kit 49572a for gas dryer egd4400wq1 d the flow plug threads are to small for valve (w103046040) on burner assembly w10336852. Can this valve (w10304604) be converted to propane. This is a brand new dryer. Whirlpool said this burner assembly is being phase out for new burner assembly w10465748 however could not tell be if the valve on this assembly is any different from old unit. Whirlpool sent me new burner assembly w10465748 except in the box is the burner assembly w10336852 which is being phased out and does does not convert with kit 49572a.

SOURCE: dryer has been converted to propane using conversion kit #131776600 and I need the info needed to get it back to run on NG The dryer is a Fidgaire Gallery series model #FDGC648GHS0 any help greatly a

Hello there. If the parts were saved, they can be reused. If not, contact your propane provider and tell them that you plan to convert back to natural gas. They will be able to get you the kit you need, and will possibly have a technician come out and install it for a fee.

SOURCE: jenn air propane grill conversion

It is inconceivable to me that large manufacturers like Jenn-Air and Nexgrill can jointly make and sell an expensive grill and then completely abandon the consumer. I purchased an Jenn-Air 740-0142 LPG and like so many wanted to convert to nautural gas which requires a larger gas orifice. I spent a month on the internet and phone calling Jenn-Air and finally Nexgrill who actually manufactured the unit in China. The Jenn-Air and Nexgrill serial numbers are the same. the 740 prefix is LPG and the 750 prefix is natural gas. After three calls to Nexgrill I found a manager who actually acknowledged making Jenn-Air but declined selling me parts for it as I believe they have product liability concerns. I call back as a Nexgrill owner and finally ordered natural gas orifices at $10.00 each. The shipment never showed up. Calling back again I was told that they really didnt really have any orifices in stock but could sell me the entire replacement gas valve for $28.00 which I purchased. The valves actually arrived on the shipping receipt was from The Grill Services in City of Industry 909-718-6128 www.grillservices.com . Part number 750-0141/142/593/594.

Forget about pirates in Somalia... we have them right here. Shame on you Jenn-Air and Nextgrill.

I need to convert this GE spacemaker back to natural gas. How do I do it


1e72cd65-81c6-4987-8438-377a9b970679.jpgLet's begin with the brass

plug with a little nylon pin

sticking out of it (see the

conversion kit picture above).

That white nylon pin is called

the blocking pin. Unscrew the

plug on the valve, called a

leak limiter, and replace it

with the new one that has the

blocking pin. This changes the

gas regulator pressure setting

for propane.Next, change the

orifice metering plug in the

burner. This controls the

amount of gas that enters the

combustion area.

One point of technique here.

Both the metering orifice and

the blocking pin plug are made

of brass and going into a

steel valve body. Brass is

softer than steel and will

make a gas-tight seal without

having to use gorilla force.

When you screw these brass

fittings in, don't go nuclear,

just snug 'em down.

Do this in reverse LOL

Is it possible to convert a rinnai avenger 25 from natural gas to lpg?


Yes it Should but you will want to check with manafactuer because it will need a conversion kit for lp gas. Natural gas is a different p.s.i. than lp gas so don't try without conversion kit. It should be just a small fitting that goes inside the gas valve. Hope this helps have a good day

Brand new roper dryer MOD RGD4440VQ1, Its gas and has a LP fitting how to change the LP fitting to PRopane. I have the conversion kit but can't find out how to install it


According to the roper site you may not change to LP gas yourself. You will need to get a licensed LP technician to make the conversion. The reason why is that they will need to adjust the flow of the Lp so that the dryer will work right. If you do not get a Lp technician to do the work then you will for fit the warranty on the Dryer.

How do i convert from natural gas to LP or Propane?


You need the LP gas conversion kit: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/Appliance-Parts/whirlpool-lp-gas-con-item-number-ap4300853.aspx . Other sources may exist. This includes a replacement orifice and a spring and the installation instructions. The orifices are swapped with a small wrench. The spring fits inside the regulator inside the blocking plug.

You will also need to remove the cap from the regulator and turn it over. This makes the regulator compatible with LP gas. It's easy to tell which side is which - each side is labeled.

However, the conversion kit should be installed by a professional trained for the job. Your local LP dealer should be able to help you find a repair person with the skill. (Improper installation could result in a gas leak.)

I hope this helps.

I have Natural gas and am moving where it will be hooked up to lP instead. What do I need to convert to LP from Natural Gas


you will need an L.P. conversion kit. the kit contains a small spring, a new brass orifice and a new brass cap that fits on the gas valve. some kits are minus the spring. you will most likely have to remove the burner to put the new orifice in. any appliance repair store will be able to order you the kit. have model and serial number handy. good luck with your move into the country.

Here are the basics of the conversion process:

Make sure the gas is turned off and the dryer2.gif is unplugged from the power source. Extreme care needs to be taken when installing the kit and making the conversion, since there is a very obvious safety issue if the kit is not installed properly. The kit will consist of a brass fitting with a nylon pin sticking out of it. This is called the blocking pin. At the gas valve and regulator you will remove the plug on the gas valve (called a leak limiter) and replace it with the fitting containing the blocking pin that comes in the conversion kit. That will change the gas regulator pressure setting from gas to propane.
Next, you will have to change the orifice metering plug in the burner. This does just what the name implies... it meters the amount of gas that enters the combustion area. The fittings that come with the conversion kit (blocking pin and orifice metering plug) are made of brass, which is a soft metal, and since they are being connected to a much harder steel, make sure that the fittings are not overtightened. I generally use some pipe dope on the threads. Once the conversion is completed, you want to check for leaks. I generally mix up some soapy water and spray it around the fittings to check for leaks. Look for bubbling which is a sign that there is a leak. The last thing to do is to reassemble the dryer. Start it up and make sure that it is operating correctly and that there are no obvious smells that would indicate a leak. If so, shut down immediately.
These are the basic steps for a gas/LP conversion. If there is any doubt that you feel comfortable making the conversion, then I recommend that you contact an appliance technician for assistance. Hope this helped and best wishes.
