Hello,
To remove the top, you will need a medium size flat screw driver and a flashlight. Some of this procedure is a lot easier with a 2nd person, so have someone else with you to help, if possible. First unplug the dryer and turn off the gas valve behind the dryer. You are going to want to use the screw driver to push 2 metal tabs to release the top panel from the front panel. Apply some lifting pressure to the top panel while looking into the gap (with the flashlight) between the top and front panel. Look for 2 metal tabs, which are usually painted black. When you find them, push them (one-at-a-time) forward horizontally with the screw driver until you hear it pop and release. Once you get both metal tabs released, you can lift the top panel. NOTE: This is where you need a 2nd person to help. Before you lift the top panel, have someone else hold the front panel. The drum rests on the front panel and will fall down without it's support. You will also need to disconnect a few wires to remove the front panel. Take note where they hook-up for reassembly. Grab hold of the drum and have the 2nd person pull up on the front panel to remove it from the grooves at the bottom. Find something or someone to hold up the drum, so you can work hands free on the dryer conversion. If you need more assistance to do the conversion, just let us know!~Good luck!

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.

How do i convert gas dryer to propane kenmore elite


kenmore has instructions along with the correct orfices you need to burn propane the only difference between gas and propane orfices is the hole size in the center of the orfices and there is very little difference in size propane is smaller hole because the pressure difference between natural gas low pressure proppane higher pressure

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.

Older Frigidare Elite Dryer conversion


You'll have to contact Frigidaire to see if a conversion kit is available. Normally, it's just an orifice replaced on the gas valve.
