When I bought a gas clothes dryer, I had to pay the installer an extra $215 to have it converted to Propane. Now, I'm considering buying a new stove from Sears Online, and am wondering if the same thing is going to happen again.
I asked Sears Online Consumer Help; they refused to answer, saying they didn't have technical data(!). I haven't been able to find anything out on Google either.
A friend of mine had a house built and new from the start that she was going propane. She purchased all gas appliances but had no idea that she would need to have conversion kits installed on them. She found out at the end of move in day. Needless to say, she was pissed off. Then she had to pay someone to come back out and install the conversion kits. It took several days to get someone to come out. Sorry, I don’t have any idea of what she had to pay.
E brain, in ALL gas appliances, dryers stoves, furnaces etc, the is a orfice there is one for LP gas (in most all ) and a different one for propane.
The way to convert to propane is to change the orfice (don't know if I'm spelling it right) anyway have someone to show you where the orfice is located on the appliance It's located where the gas valve is where the main gas or propane line connects, to the appliance.
The part (orfice) only cost around $10.00 or so, it only takes a screwdriver to replace it, take out the one orfice and put in the other, there about the size of a dime, and easy as a light bulb to replace.
You need to ask someone to show you where the orfice is but it will be right there somewhere in the gas valve on the appliance ALL gas appliance's, have a orfice.
And you can convert them real easy by yourself.
Hope this helped.
