Dryer conversion from natural gas to propane

We have just purchased a Kitchenaid gas dryer model #KGYS850 and we need to convert to propane. Kitchenaid does not have a conversion kit. Do you know of any generic kits that would work?

Hello Jrbarry. Welcome to my Gas Appliances forum and our Do-It-Yourself Web Site.

If the dryer manufacturer does not sell conversion parts, could the dryer be purchased ready to be used with propane? Or was natural gas the only choice?

If the appliance is brand new, it can be purchased already setup for either gas type or should be able to be purchased that way. If you bought it new from a dealer or store, exchange it.

If you mean just purchased as a used appliance through a private purchase, the individual required parts can be purchased at any local appliance parts store. The appliance parts stores are listed in the phone book.

Take the model number and serial numbers so the exact parts and all needed parts can be purchased while at the store.

There are already many dryer conversion questions already asked and replied to in this forum. Reading them will provide you with additional information, etc.

It's always adviseable to clean the entire exhaust venting system every 2 years. Or during any dryer maintenance and or repairs.
