    Yes thank you, but after I replace the orfice at the end of the burner, don't I need to flip some cap or something over to change it from gas to LP gas?

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.

Want to convert from natural gas to lp propane


A conversion usually consist of new burner(s)/nozzle(s)/orrifice(s) and either a new regulator/gas valve..

Some gas cook stoves or ranges come with the ability to run on either fuel and the spare nozzle or orrifice will be attached somewhere on the stove.. usually under the range top.. the gas valve may have a small lever that you simply move to the preferred fuel setting.. NAT or LP.

The appliance must have a rating plate that states it can be converted.. and if so..typically a conversion kit will be available or may have been included in the appliance package.

LP Gas runs at a higher pressure.. making a broad statement here.. converting from Natural to LP is more dangerous if the proper steps are not followed then converting from LP to Natural.. which typically just results in a weak flame.. regardless. it's still dangerous.

Many modern appliances will have a warning label stating it can only be used with a certain type of fuel. Heed the warning.

If your appliance did not ship with the alternate fuel kit or has a warning label.. do not attempt to convert it.. it will be much safer and cheaper to buy the proper appliance.

Best of luck.. and be careful

I have a LG model# DLGX2502V gas dryer and I want to convert this dryer to LP. Need to know where to locate gas valve and how to get to it. Also steps to take to do this. I have already purchased the...


I'm surprised they didn't give you instructions with the kit. Gas vale usually at floor level behind dryer. Sometimes you have to remove the lower drawer in stove it there is one and reach through there to turn off valve. After you pull the stove out I would remove the flex line and put a good plug on the valve..

Lp conversion for LG dryer


After removing the three screws which pass through the L bracket into the back of the dryer:
Stand in front of the dryer and (using the palms of your hands) give the top a sharp push back on the dryer top at the left and right side of the top. The top should slide back 1 to 2 inches. Now lift the top off.

If you post again with further questions, make sure to post under the model number you have. (you posted using a combo washer / dryer, and stated you are converting to LP, which combo units are not gas.)

Convert Maytag Dryer to LP from Natural Gas?


yes it is very much necessary. the natural gas pressure is much lower that LP. it is @3.5 in, water column. The monometer is a pressure reading instrument that will tell what pressure is present at the gas source, appliance gas manifold and gas valve. Read the conversion kit instructions well. And adjust pressure according to data plate specifications. A u-tube water monometer is the best and most accurate however a standard analog will surfice. Please use caution.
