Our Maytag Neptune gas dryer is exhausting a natural gas odor now... This smell only occurs when it has been running for awhile and never when it's turned off. Also, it ONLY smells outside the house via...


Hi,

The burner is not lighting right...


If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.


if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....


If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.


check out this electric no heat tip...

Smelled mild gas odor after moving dryer. Replaced gas line connection. Still smell gas. Tried to tighten gas line have strong gas odor after running dryer. Does not seem to be heating


The gas valve should not be opening unless the glow igniter glows and sends a signal to the gas valve. I suspect a small leak in either the gas pipe or at the gas valve. You will have to get to the gas valve to perform a leak test. While the dryer is open, replace the igniter.

I smell gas when the dryer is on. More so when


You got a loose connection on your dryer.  Turn off the gas line going to the dryer. Get you two pipe wrenches and disconnect the gas line going into your dryer.  Go to Home Depot and get the yellow pipe thread tape made for gas lines.  Clean the threads and then wrap the threads a few times around your gas dryer pipe.  Re-secure the gas line and snug up the connection real good and tight but don't go all ape **** and strip the threads.  Turn back on the gas line feeding the dryer.  Go get you some liquid dishwashing soap and put a little in a container with water.  Swish it around a bit to produce some suds.  Then take you a sponge and put it in the container so it will absorb some of soapy dish water.  Then squeeze some of it around the gas connection you just made.  You will know you got a good connection if the bubbles just sit there and drip down.  You got a gas leak if the bubbles start blowing up and around, which means more thread tape or tighten the connection up another quarter turn.

To convert from natural gas to LP


Check out the link that I am providing for information regarding the part you are looking for. http://www.repairclinic.com/Appliance-Parts?s=t-LDG712-%3d%3dc237

Here are the basics of the conversion process:

Make sure the gas is turned off and the dryer is unplugged from the power source.The first thing that you will need to do is purchase a gas dryer conversion kit. 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 in2.gif 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.

Clothes smell like gas when dryed


Are you using natural gas or propane?  Make sure the lint filter is clean and vent pipe is clear to the outside.  Also if the pipe is too long or has many bends it can reduce the airflow.

Dryer smells of natural gas


Of course, this applies to gas dryers only. If you smell natural gas near your gas dryer, do not light matches or a lighter and don't operate electrical switches or anything that might spark, igniting an explosion. Immediately shut off the gas valve that serves the dryer. If the smell is mild, ventilate the area, wait until the air is clear, and re-light your pilot light. If the smell is strong, move everyone outside, leaving the doors open to ventilate the house. Turn off the gas supply valve --located by the gas meter on the gas inlet pipe-- by rotating the valve one quarter turn with an adjustable wrench. The valve's oblong stem should be perpendicular (at a right angle) to the inlet pipe to stop the flow of gas. Call your gas supplier (or the fire department) from a neighbor's phone or a cellular phone outside the house.
