Question about Whirlpool SF325 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Problem with conversion of used Whirlpool Range from NAT to LP

The range is a Super capacity 465. Model # SF367LEKQ2. I replaced the the burner with Kit #3196473—Sealed Burner Models. For some reason I had to do nothing to the broiler. All burners and broiler work fine with nice blue flames.

My problem is with the bake oven. The flame has to much yellow in the flame. Everything works properly except the bake oven.

I have tried adjusting the air vent for the oven burner, however it does no good. I'm just getting to much gas for the amount of air and can't find a replaceable gas orifice any where on the oven.

Any help?? Thank you, Mike

Take a 1/2 inch open end wrench and adjust the orifice on top of the oven gas valve.
Tighten it down until the flame is normal. Blue with white tips.

How do I change my whirlpool super capacity 465 from natural gas to propane


The documentation for Whirlpool appliances is available here: http://www.whirlpool.com/custserv/index.jsp . Enter the full model number from the oven rim inside the drawer. The installation guide will walk you through the conversion. However, it is recommended that a qualified technician (for LP, if going to LP) do the conversion. Most LP companies will have someone who can perform the conversion. The conversion kit should have come with the documentation for the range.

I've found one model of Super Capacity 465 with the model number SF325PEEQ0. The documentation is here: http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/product_literature/search_results.jsp?form_state=literatureSearch&context=&siteCd=WHRCOM&form_state=literatureSearch&searchTerm=SF325PEEQ0 .

The steps: Make sure the power cord is disconnected, the gas supply is turned off and the grates and burner bases are removed from the top burners. Open the broiler door and locate the regulator, remove the cap from the regulator and turn it over so that LP is visible. Reinstall the cap. Do not remove the regulator. Move the range out from the countertop (about 4") if it is in place. Slide a putty knife carefully between the cooktop and the oven compartment to locate one of the clips on the side 2 3/8" back from the front of the range. While gently lifting up on the cooktop surface, push in on the clip. Repeat on the other side. Prop up the cooktop and remove the Venturi plates. Then remove one orifice at a time from the cooktop, use a 3/8" combination wrench. Replace with the same colored orifice from the kit. Lower the cooktop and reinstall all of the burner bases and other parts. In the oven, use a 1/2" combination wrench to tighten the orifice hood down to the pin (2 to 2 1/2 turns). Do not overtighten. Finish installing the range except for sliding it into the final position and then check the burners. You may need to adjust the air shutter for each burner. With the burners off, remove the knobs. Open the oven door and remove three screws from the manifold panel. Pull the panel down and away from the range. With a small screwdriver, adjust the air shutters for each burner (clockwise to let in more air, counterclockwise to reduce the air). Replace the manifold and then the control knobs and check the burners. Start the oven heating and check the burner for it. There is another air shutter next to the regulator; adjust if needed.

I hope this helps.

Gas range burner flame too high and too yellow.


Did it work OK in that location before the changes?
Sounds like you used Natural gas parts instead of LP.
Lp orifices have smaller holes than Nat.

Heating elements


I have a Whirlpool super capacity 465, the surface light for the burners comes on, the burners don't heat up, nor does the oven,(the light that says oven is on does not light up). I checked the main circuit breaker, that works. Are there any fuses in the range that would need to be replaced?

Thank-You,maddie

Whirlpool 465 Gas Stove conversion from propane to gas?


In most cases the orifices can be removed and reversed to convert from lp to natural gas. Sometimes you will need a conversion kit and you will need to look this up by model number. 465 is the oven capacity not the model number. You can locate the model number by pulling the drawer out and looking behind it. Please let me know the model and I can let you know what kit you need. Also I should let you know that your gas company is the most qualified to convert your range, and this conversion should not be attempted by anyone who is not qualified. If this conversion is not completed properly you could be risking your life and the lives of everyone in your home, so make sure you know what you are doing!! Or get a qualified person. Good luck and please be careful making any changes to your gas appliances. Please dont forget to rate me also.
