    OK. The hard part is figuring out how to take this a part. So I learned. Take off the two clips on the back of the unit up top. Pop them out after taking out screws. Take off the top. Unscrew the two sheet metal screws on the right and left inside front up top holding the front on. Slide it up and out. You have enough room to move it aside without taking apart the wires. Now unscrew the four screws holding the front of the drum brace. Pull that off. The drum is hanging now, so prop it up. Unscrew the two screws holding the bunrer unit down and slide it out noticing the two metal tabs that slide into the metal bottom. You now have it in your hand and you can insert the new burner orfice and air plug.



    Dont order the LP kit from the instructions. Order the part from the dryer model. The instructions are wrong. Check the model of the part with the label on the bottom of the burner unit. They should match. I had to get the first then, the right one.



    Pretty easy to do. Took abouut an hour all together. PITA!!



    Awesome Dryer.

You need to obtain a jet (orifice) of the correct size for the gas you wish to use. remove the burner and, replace the existing jet; that is all there is to it.

Maytag Bravo gas dryer gets too hot.


Most likely needs a new thermostat. Go online to find instructions on replacement. Make sure it is unplugged. I don't think it is too difficult to do yourself.

Can this gas range be converted to lp gas maytag performa


moz-screenshot.pngmoz-screenshot-1.pngTurn off the gas supply.
Locate the gas valve regulator. Unscrew the top cap on the regulator,turn it over and re-install it.It should be marked NAT. LP.When correctly converted you will be able to read LP.
On the Performa all the conversion parts should just be adjustments. Remove the oven racks,remove the oven base pan,remove the oven flame spreader pan to access the safety valve. Take a 1/2 inch open end wrench and tighten the orifice on top of the gas safety valve. Tighten it until it is snug.Remove the top burners and raise the top to access the surface gas valves.Tighten the valve spuds until snug. Re-assemble all parts.Turn the gas back on and lite the burners. Turn them high and low to make sure they stay lit. If any burner is not right tighten or loosen the orifice spud for that burner only. All air shutter adjustments should be full open,
