Looking for detailed indtructions for fonverting a Kenmore Gas Dryer from LP
gas to Natural gas. I have the new orifice, but I am told that a modification
also needs to be done to the leak limiter.
You should have gotten a leak limiter in the Nat kit,
with the orifice. Just a small brass plug that screws into
the top of the regulator. The LP version has a pin
attached that holds the reg open, the Nat version's just
a plug, with no pin.
Be careful handling the igniter when doing the conversion.
These are very brittle, and shouldn't be dropped or
Most guys pull the entire valve/burner assy to do this,
but it's unnecessary. I only pull the burner itself to do
this job. Prevents any possibility of gas leaks at the union.
You can do it this way without even turning off the gas.
Basically two 5/16" screws and just the burner assy -
with igniter attached - comes out, after which you can
replace the orifice using a little 3/8" box-end wrench.
The leak lim can just be grabbed with a pliers. Not a
tough job, this one's easier than it sounds.
Hope that's of some help.
