You'll need a conversion kit for your model. Get your model number (inside door) and contact a parts place, local or online. It usually consists of an orifice & possibly a pressure regulator.

I'm converting my natural gas dryer over to LP gas. I've changed the orifice but it is saying to close the regulator. It says the same thing with Natural gas but that doesn't make sense because it isn't...


I know from working on piles of restaurant equipment, that when you change over from natural to propane, you have to change the orifices and the regulator. Most natural gas equipment needs 3.5-4.0" of W.C. (that is, water column) and most propane gas equipment needs 9.0-11.0" W.C. The density and specific gravity of the gases are different. If it is glued so as you can not make any adjustments to the pressure, change the regulator to a propane one. Most natural gas regulators can not be adjusted to the propane pressure needed. Please be careful as working with gas can be dangerous. Natural gas is usually lighter than air and will rise but propane is heavier and will "pool" or "puddle" in low areas and can cause explosions in the right circumstances.

A friend gave me one kitchenaid dryer , i don't understand. canI use eletric power and propane, or only propane. I don't have the propane pipes conections, can you please help me understand it?


Your propane dryer only dries with propanr. The electrical cord is for the motor that turns the dryer and for the controls. If you don't have gas piped into your house then your gas dryer is useless. Either get an electric dryer or pipe gas into the house. If you have Natural gas in your home, then you need to get a conversion kit to make your dryer run on Natural gas.

SWITCH FROM NATURAL GAS TO PROPANE GAS MAYTAG MGR 5755 ADQ LOKING FOR GUIDE AND DESCRIBE ALL PARTS, NEEDED TO SWITCH FROM NATURAL GAS TO PROPANE GAS . PLEASE THANK YOU


Hello. Contact your propane provider and they will get you the conversion kit for your maytag model. In fact, they will send a technician to your home for free to make the conversion for you.
If you want to do it yourself go to any appliance store that handles maytag and get the conversion kit. Then remove the orifices that are currently in the stove and replace them. Regards, Joe
PS please rate my answer.
