Loud burner dryer after LP coversion

I just had a licensed professional convert my new LG gas dryer to LP. When the burner comes on it's quite loud. The guy that did the work said all is OK with the propane connections, etc. Is this normal? The dryer appears to be functioning correctly, but the roaring sound (like a grill in the wind) is worrisome.

SOURCE: LP gas conversion on an LG dryer

Mr. D, make sure you have a little time, you have to remove a few things. 1. Remove the 3 screws in back which hold the top on. Slide the top back and lift off. 2. Remove the two screws on each end of the control panel frame. (inside). Disconnect the control panel harness, pull up and foward, place aside. Remove the 4 screws on the top of the front cover, disconnect the harness for the door switch and it should pull foward. Now I believe you can get at the gas valve on the lower right. Make sure to reverse the limiter as well as putting on the new orfice. If you need any further help, e mail me at catriver1@gmail.com Will be home this evening. Catriver.

SOURCE: I need to convert my gas dryer to propane. I

Here are the basics of the conversion process:

Make sure the gas is turned off and the dryer2.gif is unplugged from the power source. 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 in 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.

Do they have coversion kits for webber summit silver grills lp to natural


eber does not sell conversion kits for any of their gas grills.Nor, do they recommend converting them, as a matter of safety. Each grill whether Natural Gas or Propane is tested and approved for that specific gas type.With Weber grills,as with many other brands, there's more to converting the grill from one gas type to another, than just changing the burner orifices. It also requires changing all the burners, because their venturi valves (air intake) are not adjustable.

Hope this helps you and thank you for choosing FixYa.

We just purchased a Lg gas dryer and need someone to come in and put a conversion kit on it to change it to LP gas .. We are having quite a difficult time to try and find someone to do that for us. Can...


actually you as the home owner could do it as it is quite simple... i am a lg servicer in texas or i would run right over and fix you up but all that gets changed is the orfice on the unit and sometimes they will send a new spring for the gas valve. if you call lg up and tell them you need a servicer to do this usually they can look on there list of servicers and recommend one close to you....hope this helps out and good luck
