I bought a used maytag MDG4000AWW I am not sure if it has been converted to LP from nat. how can one tell looking at the gas valve? Can I take it apart and see if it needs the conversion kit?

    It looks like LP to me now I just need to hook it up. By the way what if it is set to natural gas and you hook it to Propane, what happens. thanks Jeff

    I want to add, that the LP conversion kit is set up for two different valves. So it looks like a lot of parts, but out of my kit I needed only two pieces (M-valve) and now the dryer works GREAT on LP. thanks...again Jeff (Project Patch) and some side jobs too.

Hi,

The first picture below shows the gas valve. The second picture shows the conversion kit from Natural to LP gas (Part number Y306195) and then the conversion kit from LP to Natural gas last (part number 306204)

If you look at the stem in the center of the gas valve (6 below) it will unscrew. If the stem looks like the last part in image 1 below then it is LP, if it looks more like the first image in part 2 below, it is set for Nat gas

    Hi Jeff,

    When you run the dryer it will be a bit over gassed. You may get soot on the clothing and an odor in the clothes. That would be worst case scenario.

How do you change a change glo-warm sit 630 from natural gas to propane


You cannot do it. Their is no way. These come in 2 versions. Natural OR propane and they cannot be converted. The pilot is designated as a nat pilot assembly and the gas valve is designated a nat only valve. Their is no way to convert it not without costing a ton of money. You would need a LP gas valve and an LP pilot assembly. It would be better just to sell it to a nat gas user and get an LP one.

Want to convert heater from natual gas to lpg are jets available for this conversion.heater model no reh210ec thankyou


Dont know if you can get orvices for that heater but almost all gas appliances can be converted for nat to lp and lp to nat,they made a spud kit which is a blank orvice that you drill out your nat gas orvice to I think a 20 drill side and install the spud in and redrill to size usally a nat-gas orvice is around 8 to 10 sizes larger then a lp.The big thing is the gas valve and if it has a built in regulator or not,some valves can be conferted to open up the regulator pressure by the spring or a block off kit and others are fixed and cant be changed,have to replace valve.most nat-gas are at 3" to7" and lp is at 10".Hope this helps you

Can this gas range be converted to lp gas maytag performa


moz-screenshot.pngmoz-screenshot-1.pngTurn off the gas supply.
Locate the gas valve regulator. Unscrew the top cap on the regulator,turn it over and re-install it.It should be marked NAT. LP.When correctly converted you will be able to read LP.
On the Performa all the conversion parts should just be adjustments. Remove the oven racks,remove the oven base pan,remove the oven flame spreader pan to access the safety valve. Take a 1/2 inch open end wrench and tighten the orifice on top of the gas safety valve. Tighten it until it is snug.Remove the top burners and raise the top to access the surface gas valves.Tighten the valve spuds until snug. Re-assemble all parts.Turn the gas back on and lite the burners. Turn them high and low to make sure they stay lit. If any burner is not right tighten or loosen the orifice spud for that burner only. All air shutter adjustments should be full open,

Propane to Natural Gas Conversion


on the regulator there is a 1/2" nut, made of aluminum. loosen the nut, thur it around and screw it back in, there is a "NAT" on one side, and a "LP" on the other side, make sure the "LP" is facing out if you are using propane, and "NAT", if you are using Natural Gas. Very simple, all you need is a 1/2" wrench, or a small adjustable wrench,
