Do i need a convertion kit to convert to propane or is it in the line


You will be needing to find the manufacturer of the clothes dryer and call them on the telephone to ask this question. Look on the plate telling the manufacturer and the model and the serial numbers.
You will need this information for your phone call.
I am not certain, but I believe dryers cannot run on propane or butane.
I think the only run on "natural gas" or on LP gas ( liquified petroleum gas.
The two different gasses have different orifices for the pressure and flow of fuel.
God bless your efforts.

Weller Pyropen WPA2 extinguishes itself after a few minutes.


Gas (condensation really) may be freezing and constricting flow. Try warming the tip a bit with a hair dryer see if it goes longer.

If you have recently painted or varnished something in your house the fumes could be the cause. They react to the heat in the dryer. Let the house air out for a few days.

I have a soured smell in my dryer when it not running


Does it appear that the smell is in the cabinet rather than the drum? I'm guessing that bugs or mice are living in there. There are no components in the dryer case that would smell except for a slight electrical odor. Remove the case and look around! Look for droppings around the back.
