We have a dryer that was originally a gas dryer and we had to convert it to propane. We have moved and now need to convert it back to gas. I order a "conversion kit" from sears. They wanted to charge 150-200 dollars to do it for us,and of course didn't include instructions with the kit. A friend of mine said he could convert it, but we've run into a problem. I have the orifice, screw and washer. He put the orifice on, but doesn't know what to do with the screw and washer. Do I need the screw and washer, or did i pay for "extra" parts. If I do actually need these parts to put on the dryer I need help to find out where they are suppose to go. PLEASE HELP!!!

Lightbulb Help Is Not Far Away


Hello needhelp and welcome to the Do It Yourself Web Site and my Gas Appliances forum.

Complete instructions can usually be found at your local appliance retail parts store. You could still contact Sears and request instructions from their files.

Another option may be to contact the local natural gas company. In some areas the gas supplier can offer FREE help. Some do the conversion service for free or for a small fee. You have to ask.

The washer and threaded cap may be parts needed to convert the appliance regulator. I can't be sure enough to offer you specific advice. Older dryer needed these parts. Newer dryers do not.
