    where do I get the orifice?

  • bruce-stcruz Feb 24, 2009

    8 months later and the price is $40.00. However, I need to figure out how to open the blasted cabinet. Once my hands are on the manifold, the instructions with the tiny piece of brass are clear enough.

If you replaced the orifice on the gas valve, then you must screw down on the adjustment screw on top of the valve.  Use a flat screwdriver and screw down the pressure adjustment screw till it stops in the down position.  Then the valve is set for propane use.

Get a licensed person to do gas conversions unless you do not value your life

On the white plastic pressure ajusting screw you should see a nut glued into a certain position turn the screw down untill you can not EASILY go any further. That should be the position you need. By the way for all those disassebling one of these front load dryers you have to start by removing the 6 screws on the L bracket from the top, remove the top metal take the two screw off of the plastic control panel, unplug all electrical, remove panel. you wil then see four screws on top of the front door panel, remove them, tilt from section forward lift and remove. under that is a drum support panel, four more screws there, remove them, then disconect internal light and door switch connectors, then you can lift ant pull out fron drum support panel. The drum belt tensioner can then be unloaded then you can remove the drum throught the front. You will then have the gas valve exposed to be able to change. Hope this helps someone. I took the time to type this because I could not find the information anywhere in the net!

    When adjusting this plastic pressure screw, I turned the nut glued so it allowed me to turn the white plastic screw in farther. Will this be a problem that I screwed it in farther.

Actually you need to adjusted the gas valve setting or the screw you are talking about to the correct manifold pressure while the burners are on. This info you must get from LG it should have came with the oriface conversion kit this is essential as to insure the proper pressure while ignition is in process.

Gas stove need to switch to propane


Hi,

Hotpoint supplies the orifices and instructions with each range for converting. It is just that it is hidden, they attach it to the gas regulator. The regulator is near the bottom back typically. Here is a cut out from your use and care manual.

CONVERTING TO LP GAS (or converting
back to natural gas from LP)
This range leaves the factory set for use with natural
gas. If you want to convert to LP gas, the conversion
must be performed by a qualified LP gas installer.
The conversion instructions and LP orifices can be found
attached to the range next to the pressure regulator.
Keep these instructions and the orifices in case you want
to convert back to natural gas.

Do I need a part to convert my Maytag gas dryer/washer combo back from propane to Natural Gas?


Yes you can, but whether you should is another matter. I purchased a new dryer and needed it to be propane ready...you need to get the proper orifice (which lets the gas in to the burners) changed out. Natural gas orifice has a larger hole than a propane orifice. In addition, the regulator must be modified. It may involve flipping an insert under the cap (typical of stoves) or it may require conversion parts packed in the conversion kit (order one specific to your drier). This regulator is part of the piping within the back of the drier.


Incidentally, conversion orifice(s) should be included with the drier and screwed to the body in a clip. When you change it over and label the equipment as converted to propane, put the old natural gas orifice in the clip and screw it back onto the body. Put the instructions in a paper envelope and tape to the outside of the body of the drier.

New BBQ chaged from propane to NG


Hello. The conversion of any gas appliance usually requires changing orifices, regulator and burner. Then once those changes are made you can adjust the gas flow. The difference in the orifices is this.
Natural gas orifices are larger than liquid propane orifices simply because the gas pressure for the natural gas is lower.

I would double check to be sure that you have installed the correct orifice. Also, you can adjust the amount of gas by turning the orifice in or out, using that socket.

Please call the uniflame technician directly if you still have a problem 800-762-1142 Joe

Propane to nat. gas dryer


Good day,
Yes. Two reasons. The orifice that the gas comes out is a different size, and the regulator that determines gas pressure is disabled when using Propane, since propane has the regulator on the tank.

See here.

If you are not 100% sure what your doing, call a qualified company to perform the conversion. Isn't worth the gamble.
Propane is, unlike natural gas, heavier than air. It can pool in a low spot then ............

Lg dryer - gas


If you do not have the original orifice you will have to order a natural gas orifice and replace the LP one with it. It is just a small brass threaded part with the correct size hole in it, located right at the end of the burner. For a LG dryer it is probably part number 4948EL4001B but you should get your model number from the sticker just inside the door and order the correct part from your nearest servicing dealer.

Changing a gas ge dryer to a propane----convertion package we25x10014 directions show a picture of the control panel with 4 plug ins at the bottom and changing out the last one on the right for the new...


Converting your Natural Gas Dryer to Lp is taking it from a lower BTU gas "Natural" to a higher BTU "LP" value. The orfice on a LP gas valve is smaller because you dont need as much gas to make the same amount of heat. make sure you change the orifice. The little plug goes in the regulator of the gas valve, changing the valve from a low gas pressure Natural to a Higher Pressure LP.

If the kit doesnt look right, did you get the correct one?

Maybe you should call you LP provider they can do the conversion for you.
