Re: electric dryer connection

Hi madman,

If you can find a 4000 watt heater coil that you can fit and wire up in the burner box safely, then go for it. All you have to do is get the heat to the air going to the clothes. Its just not initially designed to do that. You may be able to get a heater box from an old Dryer and retrofit it safely some way.

Can this samsung gas dryer convert in electric dryer too

While it is possible to convert your dryer from electric to gas or vice versa, you will find the cost to be excessive and not worth consideration. A gas dryer will have3 a gas burner and ignitor circuit system while the electric dryer will have a heating element and controls. This is NOT a practical conversion nor would it be cost effective. If you need a gas dryer for your new home, purchase a new dryer or save a few $$$ and check your local Craig's List for a good deal on a used gas dryer. Just beware that you don't buy someone elses problem. There are legitimate sales caused by moving or upgrading appliances that will allow you to find a great bargain. Drop any notion of converting your dryer!

Propane to nat. gas dryer

Good day,
Yes. Two reasons. The orifice that the gas comes out is a different size, and the regulator that determines gas pressure is disabled when using Propane, since propane has the regulator on the tank.

See here.

If you are not 100% sure what your doing, call a qualified company to perform the conversion. Isn't worth the gamble.
Propane is, unlike natural gas, heavier than air. It can pool in a low spot then ............

Convert Natural Gas Dryer to LP Gas

A dryer is a dryer. Most cases they all work the same. You will need to get an LP conversion kit for that model to complete the task.

I am converting my gas dryer to propane and would like to know if I have to remove the natural gas regulator before hooking up to LP gas?

Most american dryers have the regulator built into the gas valve.
you will need to put he correct parts on the gas valve.

do you have another regulator on the gas line before the machine?

If you dont feel comfortable doing this conversion you should call your propane supplier and have them do it for you.
