The burner nozles are different on N.Gas and P.gas. They are different sizes as the gas burns differently. So if you have not changed the nozles, do so, if you can actually aquire them from whirlpool.

The limit switch is bad. most likely or the igniter. Does it give off a gas smell? If it is propane you can really smell it. But Natural Gas You may not.

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.

Patio glow outdoor propane fire pit does not stay lit


Fire pits motivated by gas. Need suffocation. A natural fire needs oxygen. Gas fires need suffocation. Take the wood or rocks and make it tighter over the gas holes. Meaning Pile the rocks on top of gasoline tighter or more generously so the gas and the flame are not coming out hitting straight oxygen. Give the fire something to hold onto. Natural fires need the opposite. Propelled fires need a sauna /steam room / hot rock type of relationship.

Hi there.

Burner orifice size for propane gas is number 55. You have to replace all burner orifice with this size if you want to use the fryer with propane gas. Pilot burner orifice should be replaced with propane pilot orifice.The gas valve spring should also be replaced with propane spring kit. The difference between the two spring is the natural gas spring is lighter or thinner compare with the propane gas valve spring.

Regards.

Liquid Propane vs. Propane (like used for BBQ)


They are the same thing.

The propane you buy for your BBQ is liquid in the bottom of the tank. At the top, it comes out as a gas, which you run through a regulator and then into your grill. If you by some chance turn the tank sideways, the valve inside will shut and keep the liquid propane from coming out. If it did you could have a serious fire.

However, there is a difference between what most folks call "Natural Gas" and propane. If you have gas piped into your home, it's natural gas and not propane.

Natural gas dryers won't run right on propane (LP Gas) and vice versa. There is usually a conversion kit you can buy to switch them over.

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.
