It is very simple
pull of the botom toe kick
3 t-20 screws
once the toe kick is off
you will see the gas valve
disconnect the ignitor
remove one 5/16 screw
the whole assembly will slide out
if you look at the top of the tube
you will see the brass orifice
this needs to be replaced

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.

Need to change from LP to propane. How do I get access


Gas to Propane requires a Propane Certified technician. These technicians are provided by the company that provides Propane that they will be using.
You may need to get a Propane conversion kit, for technician from the Propane company to install.
You can certainly double check on this...Hope this helps.

I just converted my DUET "sport" dryer from propane to natural gas,orfice and regulator cap, and now the burner does not come on.


Hi, I'm going to start with asking the most obvious thing, no offense. Is the gas turned "on"? Does the hot surface ignitor "glow" ? The valve should be open at the burner supply tube as well as the dryer supply line. I've seen it happen often where the burner valve was shut "off" and forgotten when the repairs/conversions are complete. You could loosen the fitting at the burner to insure you're getting gas flow to that point. That way you know for sure it's likely a bad ignitor or coil etc. The ignitors are quite sensitive, and if disturbed or knocked around can crack, then it's toast. Hope that helps, good luck

Converting your Natural Gas Dryer to Lp is taking it from a lower BTU gas "Natural" to a higher BTU "LP" value. The orfice on a LP gas valve is smaller because you dont need as much gas to make the same amount of heat. make sure you change the orifice. The little plug goes in the regulator of the gas valve, changing the valve from a low gas pressure Natural to a Higher Pressure LP.

If the kit doesnt look right, did you get the correct one?

Maybe you should call you LP provider they can do the conversion for you.
