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)

Propane to nat. gas dryer


Good day,
Yes. Two reasons. The orifice that the gas comes out is a different size, and the regulator that determines gas pressure is disabled when using Propane, since propane has the regulator on the tank.

If you are not 100% sure what your doing, call a qualified company to perform the conversion. Isn't worth the gamble.
Propane is, unlike natural gas, heavier than air. It can pool in a low spot then ............

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.

I have a Whirlpool gas dryer. I have gone from a natural gas hook-up to propane. Is there anything I need to do different for that natural gas installation?


You will need to change the gas discharge jets on the burner so that the burner gets the proper mixture of gas and air. Propane accessory stores should be able to furnish a conversion kit.
