Most times you have to unscrew the hex nut on top of the regulator (right where the gas line connects) and flip the plunger inside. It usually shows LP on one side and NAT on the other.

Is there a specific regulator for a Viking D3 cooktop or can I purchase one off the shelf?

If it runs on natural gas it has a lower pressure regulator than one that runs on propane gas. Nat gas is 1.1kpa propane is 2.75kpa

GE Range - oven flames too high after regulator replacement and self clean

You need a Gas tech/plumber there urgently!!!!
If the gas jets in your oven had not been changed to accomodate LP gas then the orifice on your existing jets are still to large in diameter. In other words your using Natural Gas jets ( lower pressure jets) for Lp which has a much higher pressure than Nat. gas, this can be extremely dangerous, & could cause major problems.
Again I strongly suggest you contact a Gas tech/Plumber & do not use your oven until it has beeen checked by a professional.Good luck

Mod jgp328wec2ww changed orifices from nat to lp. Burners not getting hot enough. It took 12 min to bring 1 qt to boiling and not rooling. how is this adjusted?

Please tell us everything you did to convert your stovetop/oven to LP? Beside swapping the natural gas orifices for LP orifices, did you also switch the appliance regulator over to LP? When you put in the orifices did you match up the proper size ones to each different size burner according to your owner's manual? They have #'s stamped on them to identify them and some are even color coded. Were you having any similar issues with your previous stove? If so, it may be a pressure problem. I can help you solve this problem with a little more information. Douglas

How can you tell which fuel a gas cooktop is set up for?

the gas regulator has a round "plug" in the middle of the top and one side is marked nat an one is marked lp you can tell which fuel the regulator is setup for by inspecting this plug. the orifices for the surface burners are marked with thier sizes (.073) for instance which I believe is thousandthsof an inch. also the orifice "spuds" as they are called will often have a drop of colored paint on them to further identify them for installation in the correct burner. checkyour carburation too. if the flame is noisy and trying to shoot up of the burner you could be getting too much air. close the air off a bit till you make a pretty flame two tone blue no yellow.

Propane to Natural Gas Conversion

on the regulator there is a 1/2" nut, made of aluminum. loosen the nut, thur it around and screw it back in, there is a "NAT" on one side, and a "LP" on the other side, make sure the "LP" is facing out if you are using propane, and "NAT", if you are using Natural Gas. Very simple, all you need is a 1/2" wrench, or a small adjustable wrench,
