I need to convert this GE spacemaker back to natural gas. How do I do it

1e72cd65-81c6-4987-8438-377a9b970679.jpgLet's begin with the brass

plug with a little nylon pin

sticking out of it (see the

conversion kit picture above).

That white nylon pin is called

the blocking pin. Unscrew the

plug on the valve, called a

leak limiter, and replace it

with the new one that has the

blocking pin. This changes the

gas regulator pressure setting

for propane.Next, change the

orifice metering plug in the

burner. This controls the

amount of gas that enters the

combustion area.

One point of technique here.

Both the metering orifice and

the blocking pin plug are made

of brass and going into a

steel valve body. Brass is

softer than steel and will

make a gas-tight seal without

having to use gorilla force.

When you screw these brass

fittings in, don't go nuclear,

just snug 'em down.

Do this in reverse LOL

Dryer gets really hot after starting.So hot it will burn you.This is a gas dryer.Not a good mix,Heat and gas.The vent is new,The lint trap is clean.This is a new dryer.Is there a common cause for this...

Has it always been hot like that? If so it may need to have the gas valves converted. Most dryers ship with natural gas orifices, which DO NOT work with LP/Propane.

The good news is most dryers ship with all the necessaru orifices to convert between the two gasses, and your owner's manual should have instructions for performing the procedure, If not, post your model number and I'm sure I or someone else can look up the instructions for you.

Hope this helps.

Kenmore gas dryer, very low gas flow at orifice. has new coils, all sensors check ok. ignitor works, only sufficient flow for a pilot-like flame. Possible plugged or restricted gas valve?

possible, with safety in mind make sure you got enough gas pressure at the main pipe. if you got natural gas the pressure is about 4psi. if LP Gas is about 12psi.

How do i convert from natural gas to LP or Propane?

You need the LP gas conversion kit: . Other sources may exist. This includes a replacement orifice and a spring and the installation instructions. The orifices are swapped with a small wrench. The spring fits inside the regulator inside the blocking plug.

You will also need to remove the cap from the regulator and turn it over. This makes the regulator compatible with LP gas. It's easy to tell which side is which - each side is labeled.

However, the conversion kit should be installed by a professional trained for the job. Your local LP dealer should be able to help you find a repair person with the skill. (Improper installation could result in a gas leak.)

I hope this helps.

How do I change the orifice on my kenmore dryer from natural to a LP orifice?

More and more, you have to change the gas valve AND the orifice due to the liability issue of changing only the orifice and not doing a complete conversion. If, and this might be a big if, a conversion kit is available, you will need the model # of your dryer to order it. The kit will come with a spring and a tension nut for the gas valve and the orifice you need. Instructions will come with the kit. Follow them to the letter. An improperly installed conversion kit, or just changing the orifice, can be very dangerous. LP operates at a higher pressure than the natural gas the dryer was built to use, and an improper conversion presents a significant fire hazard.

Amana NDG2335AWW Gas dryer LP or Natural?

If there are no stickers indicating so, you will need to open up the dryer and measure the gas orifice. A propane orifice should be either a #54 or #58.

I have Natural gas and am moving where it will be hooked up to lP instead. What do I need to convert to LP from Natural Gas

you will need an L.P. conversion kit. the kit contains a small spring, a new brass orifice and a new brass cap that fits on the gas valve. some kits are minus the spring. you will most likely have to remove the burner to put the new orifice in. any appliance repair store will be able to order you the kit. have model and serial number handy. good luck with your move into the country.

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.

Lp conversion

You guys like things that go boom. My advice is to get a certified gas tech. To change the orfice to LP you have to take apart the unit from the front.
