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: converting back to nat gas from propane

Typically, conversion from natural to propane and visa-versa is just a simple connection behind the appliance. Look in the box of the conversion kit (or on the back of the packaging,) and you should see the conversion instructions. Since you are dealing with gas, you need to make sure the shut-off valve is... shut off so no gas can leak while do the exchange. Also, make sure there are not open flames anywhere near the work area. Take your time and follow the directions...

SOURCE: samsung gas dryer convert to propane

I purchased a Samsung steam gas dryer and found that no one in our area knew anything about them, Fortunately I am a gas tech. but have never worked on this brand. The first thing is you should always use a gas technician before doing this. Secondly turn off the gas and electricity. You must remove the two screws from the back that hold on the top of the appliance and set this aside. Then lift up the front electronics and disconnect the wiring harness, once you've done this there are 5 screws along the top of the silver strip or door area. This will alow you to lift up the front and disconnect the wiring harness and set aside. now you can follow the instructions on converting your dryer. PLEASE check for LEAKS and proper gas flow. Follow the same steps in reverse to put the dryer back together and happy drying.

Remove propane conversion to restore to natural gas


Buy a set of orifices and regulator spring for the gas valve in that dryer. The manufacturer should sell them as a conversion kit. It's a pretty simple conversion.

I DO NOT HAVE NATURAL GAS AVAILAABLE WHERE I LIVE/


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.

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.
