    Are the stoves basically the same with the exception of the orifices? I am up against the same situation where I've purchased a GE Spectra stove that was used on Natural Gas but I'm looking into a conversion kit for using LP. Are there any other potential issues that I should be aware of, i.e., safety, operational, etc., before converting the stove/oven?

Okay, DO NOT USE THIS STOVE ON LP GAS.

It's not intended to be used with LP gas, because LP gas requires a smaller orifice than natural gas. Call your propane supplier IMMEDIATELY...DO NOT USE THIS STOVE UNTIL IT IS CONVERTED TO LP GAS (if it's even possible)...this is extremely dangerous and you could hurt yourself if you continue to use LP gas on a stove that was designed to run on natural gas.

    It wouldn't be a bad idea, and get the propane version. Your local Propane provider may be able to help you pick out one. Definitely do not use a natural gas stove on a propane supply. (I work for a MFA Oil on the Propane side of things, just as an FYI...

    ..but no matter who you use, definitely consult them.

Flames in oven are WAY too high! Having trouble lowering them.


Hi! melisrus
If you are using LP, even if you change the regulator settings from Natural Gas to LP Gas, the orifices all need to be changed. The Orifices should have come with the new unit, if not contact Hotpoint.

Make sure you order the instruruction manual and this is an Oven with Range Top, you will need orifices for all the burners on the range top.

If you oven temp is off by +- 50 degrees, thermostat needed to be change. to check and adjust the oven thermostat usually we place the oven thermometer in the center of the oven, run the oven at 350 degrees for minimum 30 minutes and check the oven temperature, It should be +- 25 degrees, if it needed adjusting, there is the adjusting slot screw in the center of the thermostat stem, to adjusting it ( do not turn thermostat stem during adjusting ), turn adjusting screw counter clockwise to raise the the temp, clockwise to lower the temp, turn it a little at a time and wait 15-30 minutes before do the next adjustment until the temp match with the oven knob. To adjust the oven burner air and gas mixture, first turn the air shutter close, you will see yellow flame, then open the shutter until the yellow flame disappear and them open it a little more, now you are done. For the oven uneven cooking? you may have a bad oven burner tube, during operation some of the flame may be lift off, disappear or flame being uneven, you can check it with the kick panels off to see the flame, if these are the case, you needed to change the oven burner tube,

Cannot adjust flame on gas burner


Is this lp or natural gas? The screw you turned adjusts the low flame only. Did this just start, or has it always done this? Let me know.

Did you change the orifice in the regulator? The orifice opening for LP is a different diameter than the opening for Natural Gas. If you've already attempted changing the settings from Natural to LP, you may want to double check the orifice under the regulator cap, or...you may have a regulator problem. You will need to turn the gas off prior to attempting this. The regulator will be located in the back of the oven somewhere near where the gas line connects to the stove. There is a gas orifice that needs to be turned over to change gas settings. "LP" should be present if it is set correctly. Let me know if this helps.
