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?

    Thanks, but just as the panel is on the opposite side of the dryer from the burner, the screw on the opposite side of the drum can not be reached from the access panel on the lower left corner of the rear panel.

You do have to pull out the unit and use the rear access to unscrew those screws accessable from the inside.

How do you convert to propane a kenmore elite model # 79671622310


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.

I have a grill Frigidaire FD27LKEC 27 it is running with natural gas and I would like to convert it to propan. Is there a convertion kit or what do I need to change.


At one time, there was a conversion kit available to convert your model from Natural Gas to Propane Gas. Unfortunately, it is no longer available and has been removed from the retail market. This, usually happens, when a problem resulted from a conversion of one gas type to another.

Hope this helped you.

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.

Do I need a part to convert my Maytag gas dryer/washer combo back from propane to Natural Gas?


Yes you can, but whether you should is another matter. I purchased a new dryer and needed it to be propane ready...you need to get the proper orifice (which lets the gas in to the burners) changed out. Natural gas orifice has a larger hole than a propane orifice. In addition, the regulator must be modified. It may involve flipping an insert under the cap (typical of stoves) or it may require conversion parts packed in the conversion kit (order one specific to your drier). This regulator is part of the piping within the back of the drier.


Incidentally, conversion orifice(s) should be included with the drier and screwed to the body in a clip. When you change it over and label the equipment as converted to propane, put the old natural gas orifice in the clip and screw it back onto the body. Put the instructions in a paper envelope and tape to the outside of the body of the drier.

I converted my 40'' Figidaire range to LP a few years back when I did not have access to natural gas. Now I need to convert it back. I do not still have the old parts and there seems to be no ''Natural gas...


I am having almost the same problem. Frigidaire told me to replace all 5 mixing tubes, ~$385, yeah right. They don't have the orifices itemized as an individual part, so no-one carries them, just the LP conversion kit. Another repair/parts guy advised me to drill out the orifices. Some other threads/blogs give the diameter to drill. Basically, since natural gas is 0.5 psi, you need a larger hole than your current propane orifices provide. Please speak up if you find out anything, I will try to do the same. Good luck.

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'll have to contact Frigidaire to see if a conversion kit is available. Normally, it's just an orifice replaced on the gas valve.
