GE Gas dryer getting too hot

Our gas dryer is hooked up to a BBQ propane tank with an appliance regulator. The jets are jetted for propane. When we use the dryer the back plate gets so hot it burns your hand and is scorching our clothes. We can hear the gas clicking on and off. What could be the problem?

The gas burner valve is not the correct one for LP gas. You have to convert the valve as well as the orifices. The clicking is because it is over heating and cycling on and off o the high limit (safety thermostat)

When I turn on the grill the gas flame does not go beyond about 1/3 of the way along the connector tube to the rear burner.

It could be a partially blocked gas jet or insufficient gas pressure is reaching the jet.

Clearly the pipes and valve should be checked if cleaning the jet doesn't provide a cure.
It is a good idea to compare the jet size and air bleed size with specifications. If it is set up for propane and being used with butane it will display the inefficiency you described.

There have been a few appliances designed for use with bottled gas that weren't intended to be used with a pressure regulator and lots of propane appliances that need a higher pressure than the standard fixed regulator can supply and an adjustable regulator should be used instead.

BBQ does not get hot enough to cook properly. All gas jets are clean as BBQ is almost new

blue flame? if flame is not blue, then air gap needs adjusting. if blue flame and burner control is on high, then could be your regulator. (assuming tank if full)

How do I convert a natural gas BBQ grill to propane?

You change the nozzle or jet or the complete regulator that regulates the flow of gas. I have seen some company's that will sell you the part or the regulator. You will have to go the the Webber and see if they even offer the part. Or maybe a BBQ dealer who sells and services Webber might do it for you. I know most companies will not sell the part or parts because of the liability. Good luck.

I hooked a thermador cooktop to a BBQ propane tank. The flames are large for a second and make a puff sound and the shrink to nothing. All 5 burners do the same.

It does sound like a faulty regulator, propane operates at 2.75kpa and if the existing regulator is for natural gas it is only 1.1kpa.
If you are operating off a bulk tank the regulator on the tank may be high pressure then the secondary regulator on the appliance may be to bring it down further. See if you can get a manometer and check it all out before doing any regulator removing.

flame running back is an indication of insufficient gas pressure or flow. check and adjust the regulator and ensure that there is no blockage in the jets.

The oven temperature on my GE XL44 propane range is inconsistent. I set it at 350, and then I'll check the inside thermometer a half hour later and it will read 450. Drives my wife crazy. Some days it...

Hello. One question has your range burner jets been changed to LP (liquid propane). If you are using natural gas jets for the burners and ovens this make the heat and flam fluctuate in temperature and the same for the oven. Natural gas jets are larger. One more thing here! There is a control valve spring with cap in the stove gas regulator that has to be taken out and turn around.

Search the operation manual on how to changes jets from natural gas to LP. In back of the stove behind one of the panels is a small cloth bag contain these LP jest and also there should be set of instruction in a bunch of languages.

If you are going to do this yourself--- DIY. Read those instruction ever carefully. There a bass ball valve that hook to the gas line before the flex stainless line behind you stove. Turn the nob to where it perpendicular to the gas line. Open the windows in the house and turn off all electric equipment such as, fans, toasters, don't be clicking the light switches off and on. Just a precaution for you and your family safety.

Check with your city zoning ordnance about home owner changing their gas jets in the range. Some cities and states won't allow you to due this. Then you will need a technician to preform this operation. I wish you and family well being and you safety first... GB you...stewbison

Liquid Propane vs. Propane (like used for BBQ)

They are the same thing.

The propane you buy for your BBQ is liquid in the bottom of the tank. At the top, it comes out as a gas, which you run through a regulator and then into your grill. If you by some chance turn the tank sideways, the valve inside will shut and keep the liquid propane from coming out. If it did you could have a serious fire.

However, there is a difference between what most folks call "Natural Gas" and propane. If you have gas piped into your home, it's natural gas and not propane.

Natural gas dryers won't run right on propane (LP Gas) and vice versa. There is usually a conversion kit you can buy to switch them over.

Hot dog cart grill and steam tables/gas to grill freezes up

It isn't an unusual problem and most people who use pressurised gas experiences the problem sooner or later due to a sudden drop in pressure equaling a sudden drop in temperature.

Multiple cylinders might be the answer but an electrically heated manifold or gas line would be better.

GE Gas dryer getting too hot

You did not post the make and model but you cannot use a natural gas appliance on a propane system. The orifice jets are not the same size and you could be letting too much propane into the burners.

COnverting it to propane

You need to change the orifice on the end of the gas valve and flip the cap on the regulator to the LP side. Model number would help.....?
