- Model Number
- 1-5 years
I bought a Hotpoint dryer used, thinking that the only thing I'd need to convert it to propane was the $5 brass orifice with a smaller hole. But the little paper that came with that orifice talked about replacing a small screw-in piece with a blocking pin (unfortunately my model is not the one where all you have to do is turn a dial on the regulator). This pin doesn't seem to be sold separately, but the "conversion kit" prescribed for my model number is going to cost $150-200, and by all appearances all I need is another $5 tiny brass piece. Kit we25x217 is for converting other Hotpoint dryers to propane (for more like $30) and it clearly shows the blocking pin piece as one of the few components involved. Can anyone tell me if this is the same blocking pin that the htx24gask0ws uses, and if I can buy that instead? I have already changed the orifice, and a youtuber says that he talked to GE who confirmed that no changes needed to be made to the venturi (only his model had the turn-a-dial regulator, instead of needing to deal with a blocking pin).
