Question about Dryers

1 Answer

We have a commerical speed queen LP dryer it was converted to LP a long time ago (>5 yrs) I have noticed a change in the color of the burner flame. Does the ring around the gas inlet just before the burner head change this (it has a small allen screw and is not loose at the time)or is there another issue I should be concerned with? The LP kit # was M4703P3

You should be concerned with the cleaning of that ring around the gas "inlet". Burnt lint blocks the smooth flow of gas and cause the flame to change from non-luminous to luminous.

Whirlpool WFG510S0AS2 range - stove burners work just fine, but both the oven and broiler does not stay lit. NOTE - this unit has been converted from natural gas to LP


when the lp conversion is done , it is normally just a jet size change that is done
however the air shroud has to also be adjusted to get a clean blue burn of the flame
The just jet change results in a slightly yellow flame which is incomplete burn of the gas and that creates carbon build up at the jet and burners causing partial blockage
I would suggest that you call in an accredited gas fitter to check the problem and if necessary , clean the jets and adjust the air shroud

Sounds like something is loose inside the dry drum


Unplug dryer!!

There should be 2 5/16th screws on the bottom panel in front. Then there are 2 more on bottom of top panel. Take off wires to door switch. Take off 4 screws to front bulkhead. Pull it off. Note how belt goes on. Take it off and pull drum.

I would first rotate drum by hand and see where noise is coming from. If inside one of the baffles in drum, you can easily lossen up screws to remove baffle to get things out.

Speed Queen dryer does not heat...


you have weak gas valkve coils and they will work when cold but after a few cycles they become electrically open and will not allow the gas to flow.
just replace both gas valve coils and that will fix your problem.
