Access to burner on Frigidaire Affinity AGQ6000 series dryer
I need to convert a new dryer from natural gas to propane. I have the conversion kit but can not access the burner. The kit says to remove front panel, but after removing bottom screws and clips about 1/2 way up, there appears to be a set of screws accessible only from the inside. Tried to remove the top to access, but no luck.
Called the Frigidaire 800 number and they were no help. Original rep said to use access panel in back, but this is on the opposite side of the drum from the burner.
How do you gain access to the burner to make the conversion?

You have to get the conversion kit. Mostly the burner gas nozzels has to be changed. Propane has a higher BTU value than natural gas. So the burner nozzle has to be smaller with propane.
You have to have the right nozzle kit for your dryer. Normally the propane nozzle kit comes with the new dryer. It is attached in a plastic seethrough bag and attached somewhere in the back of dryer.
Also you have to adjust the air opening in the burner for propane. Propane need more air than natural gas to burn properly. If you buy the conversion kit or find the conversion kit in the back of your unit, it will clearly give instructions how to do it.
You can order an LP conversion kit to change it over to propane. Most kits cost between 30 and 60 dollars, and require you to take the drum out of the dryer to access the gas valve for the change over.
Gas to Propane requires a Propane Certified technician. These technicians are provided by the company that provides Propane that they will be using.
You may need to get a Propane conversion kit, for technician from the Propane company to install.
You can certainly double check on this...Hope this helps.
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.
You can get the conversion kit. It will tell you how to convert the dryer. I recommend that you get a technician to do it though.
