SOURCE: Converting Kenmore gas range to LP???

I had success with the conversion. The directions are very cryptic, but it can be done, without the professional emptying your wallet, for 5 minutes worth of work. No adjustments needed on the air shutters, once they are wide open. The orifices are the pain-in-the-a$$es. You need some small tools to get to them, or chance dropping them under the top....which wasn't fun. Oh...and watch which orifice goes where...there are 3 sizes. So, short version, change orifices, open shutters, and flip regulator setting from NG to LG. Orifices take the longest time. ~ sjDIY

Al, you need to seat the needle valve on the bake. Remove the bottom drawer, right below the bake burner you will see the nut just below the air shutter adjustment. Turn this nut clockwise a few times, it might seem hard but just do it. Then try the bake again, you should have a nice bluel flame. Tenbears.

SOURCE: Gas stove with electric ignition (oven stopped working)

the electric ignition is bad and needs replaced in oven. I had the same problem a few months ago and it was the ignitor for the oven. if replacing it yourself, be very careful with ignitor, it is very fragil. do not touch ignitor itself, hold on to it by the base of it. they are not that hard to change.

HOW TO CONVERT FROM NATURAL GAS T PROPANE


Their are 2 types of ranges. Ones with sealed burners and ones that do not have sealed burners. The sealed burner ranges must have a kit to replace the orifices. The none seal burner models are simply called crank down and flip models. That means you flip the screw on top of the regulator to where it reads LP. and then you tighten down the spuds on the top burners and the oven valve and then you adjust the air shutters.

Note: Some stoves with sealed burners cannot be converted to LP. The model number you posted is not a correct model number.

In side the stove is all black how to change natural gas to propane


Not sure on which way your model is so in general on gas there are two ways to convert natural to LP gas , first you have to reverse the cap in the pressure regulator by screwing it out reversing it and screwing it in(long stem). Second you have to turn down the spuds which usually require a !/2 inch wrench to tighten down about one to two turns until snug.(do not overtighten which crushes) One spud for the bake will be found at the base of the burner assemble in the air shutter area, usually the top of the gas valve. There is one spud for each top burner, or newer units have orfices to change instead. Turn off gas and unplug before starting. Reason for this is natural gas operates at about 3.5 wci while LP gas pressure is about 9 to 11 wci. To repeat turn of gas and unplug before starting......

Not really sure which model you have but when converting the over, ether bake or broil burner you tighten down the orfice cap. If you remove the burner off the oven valve you will notice that you can put a wrench on the orfice cap. Just tighten snuggly. If you over tighten you will crush the orfice under the cap.

Bought a four basket fryer on an auction. It is a Model bb14, serial m25860 not sure if it is now Lp or NG. Pilot lights for both sides but does not light burners. Can hear the click on the thermostat....


Natural gas and LP gas run on different pressures. If it has been set up to run on LP and you hook it up to natural the burners will be very small and may not light due to LP works on a higher pressure than natural. If it is set up for natural and you use propane the flames could be way overgassed. One thing to check is what the appliance regulator spring is set for. There will be a cap on the regulator and when you remove the cap there is usually a small metal ring inside that sets the spring tension by flipping it's position. On top of the ring it will say NAT or LP. Now if you find this ring set on NAT then the appliance was probably running on Natural Gas and vice versa. If it is set up for LP and you go to Natural than the orfices can be drilled out and the appliance regulator tension cap flipped. If it is set up for Natural and you go to LP than it is best to replace the orfices with LP ones.

Kenmore Elite Gas Stove


Will have to ask some basic questions first.  How old is the stove?  What is the entire model # from the sticker on the unit?  Is this LP or natural gas?  Also, make sure that the orifices in the center of the burners are clean (can use a safety pin or paper clip to poke them a few times to clean).  Make sure that the black caps are on top of the burners and seated properly or they will not lite.  Let me know what you find.
