IMPORTANT: Any burner changes or conversions must be made by a qualified professional.
The input ratings shown on the dryer data label are for elevations up to 2,000 feet (610 meters), unless
elevation requirements of over 2,000 feet (610 meters) were specified at the time the dryer order was
placed with the factory. The adjustment or conversion of dryers in the field for elevations over 2,000 feet
(610 meters) is made by changing each burner orifice. If this conversion is necessary, contact the dealer
who sold the dryer or contact the Maytag Co.
2. Technical Gas Data
a. Gas Specifications
Shaded areas are stated in metric equivalents
* Measured at outlet side of gas valve pressure tap when gas valve is on.
b. Gas Connections
Inlet connection ------------- 1/2” N.P.T.
Inlet supply size ------------- 1/2” Diameter Pipe (minimum)
Heat input (per dryer) ------ 150,000 Btu/hr (37,800 kcal/hr)
1) Natural Gas
Regulation is controlled by the dryer’s gas valve’s internal regulator. Incoming supply pressure
must be consistent between a minimum of 6.0 inches (14.92 mb) and a maximum of 12.0 inches
(29.9 mb) water column (W.C.) pressure.
2) Liquid Propane (L.P.) Gas
Dryers made for use with L.P. gas have the gas valve’s internal pressure regulator blocked open so
that the gas pressure must be regulated upstream of the dryer. The pressure measured at each
gas valve pressure tap must be a consistent 10.5 inches (26.1 mb) water column. There is no
regulator or regulation provided in an L.P. dryer. The pressure must be regulated at the source
(L.P. tank) or an external regulator must be added to each dryer.
Shaded area is stated in metric equivalent
* Drill Measurement Size (D.M.S.) equivalents are as follows:
Natural Gas ..................... #29 = 0.1360” (3.4540 mm).
Liquid Propane Gas ........ #46 = 0.810” (2.0574 mm).
