SOURCE: Whirlpool 465 Gas Stove conversion from propane to gas?

Do not use the stove until its properly converted back to natural gas. It's a serious carbon monoxide hazard.
Most ppl throw the orifices away, sometimes they are stored under the stovetop in the back, or behind it. The original natural gas orifices are the only parts you need. All orifices are labeled by a tiny stamp on the side. It will state the size and type, example: 10 LP.....meaning number 10 size and propane.
A nature gas should be labeled something like 12 NG.
Call a local parts dealer or order online the NG orifices for you model number.
I assume you do not have the setup instrctions that come new with the unit. Heres what you need to do:
1) Change the orifies to NG (the bigger the burner the higher the size number) so if you have two #10 size, one #12 and one #14...then common sence will tell you where they go.
2) convert the regulator. This is the part to which the inlet connects. Remove the vent cap,(a plastic cap, you'll see it) unscrew and flip the insert over and reinsert it (You'll usually see 'NAT' on one side and 'LP' on the other). Reinstall the cap, and that's done. The word NAT should be facing you where you can read it.

3) Then, find the brass orifice that supplies the bake burner (usually under the range, behind the drawer), and if included, the broil burner (usually inside the oven). These are adjustable, and, like adjustable top burners, are simply 'snugged' down clockwise with a 1/2 inch wrench. You need to screw these back up for natural Gas.


You know when the oven is correct, you should get a nice blue flame on top as well as in the oven. Flames with yellow tips are wrong!

SOURCE: Propane gas burner now has red flame instead of blue

Hi, If you have the same problem with your stove , furnace and water heater, Then you look for things in common that would cause the problem. Any change in the flames is an indication of a change in the fuel/air mix. The item that would be common to all would be the pressure diaphragm. This is not something a customer should work on without a through knowledge of how they work. I think you would be well advised to have a service call. Good Luck!

I've just converted my stove from natural gas to propane and the oven and broiler flame are both to high, how can I lower them?


When converting from natural gas to propane you have to switch the regulator to propane. then on most modern stoves you have to turn the orifice hoods down to adjust for the higher pressure of propane. there are some stoves that you have to purchase a propane conversion kit with different orifices for the burners and oven burners.

Although the natural gas orifices for the stove top burners were replaceable with propane orifices, many ovens/broilers orifices are simply adjustable using a 1/2" open end wrench to convert from one gas to another. Some brands are adjustable and some have to be changed out. It depends on the make and model. Do you have your owner's manual? It contains detailed info on converting your unit. I included a link below to choose from the list to download your manual. You'll need your exact model # listed on your stove. Pull out the bottom drawer and look at the data plate for the model # and then find it on the list for the correct manual. Douglas

Open up the range top and check the piping connections right up to each burner. Use soapy water and a small brush to do this safely. Chances are you have a leak. J.

This is a camp stove issue. I fixed it with my tire pump. I opened up all the valves, duck taped the hose to the stove valve and pumped air thru the system. No more blockage. Works like a charm.

Burners well not light up right and pilot lite is real small


Two possibilities: This is a stove orificed for propane and connected to natural, or the regulator ( a squarish shaped thing in the line under the cooktop) has a problem and is limiting gas flow way below normal. In the first case you just got the stove, in the second it has worked fine until the sudden change.
