How to Install a Kit to Convert From Gas to Propane on an LG Dryer

Save

Automatic gas dryers manufactured by the LG company come in a wide range of models, each with a distinct set of features and design elements. Each model is designed to use natural gas to provide heat. Liquefied petroleum, or propane, can be used in place of natural gas if the gas burner assembly is converted. A conversion kit contains the components needed to modify the LG gas dryer.

Things You'll Need

  • Phillips screwdriver
  • Flat-blade screwdriver
  • Disconnect the power cord of the LG dryer. Turn off the gas supply to the dryer.

  • Remove the three screws on the back of the top panel. Slide the top panel back and up to remove it.

  • Remove the two screws on the back corners of the control panel. Unplug the electrical connectors from the control panel.

  • Lift the control panel up and forward to disconnect it. Set the panel aside.

  • Remove the screws holding the front panel to the cabinet. Disconnect the door switch connector. Lift the front panel off the LG dryer cabinet and set aside.

  • Insert a flat blade screwdriver into the adjustment screw on the gas valve under the dryer drum. Twist the adjustment screw clockwise to change to the propane setting.

  • Remove the two screws holding the natural gas orifice to the gas pipe assembly. Lift the orifice out.

  • Place the propane gas orifice from the conversion kit onto the gas pipe assembly. Install the two screws that hold the orifice in place.

  • Reverse the disassembly steps to put the LG dryer back together.
