    thank you. guess i need to return the stove.. huh?

  • jaymeeks Dec 24, 2008

    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.

Use a manometer to insure lp gas pressure is correct. The regulator for the stove may need adjusting. The air mixture adjustment may not be correct for PL as well.

Can this gas range be converted to lp gas maytag performa


moz-screenshot.pngmoz-screenshot-1.pngTurn off the gas supply.
Locate the gas valve regulator. Unscrew the top cap on the regulator,turn it over and re-install it.It should be marked NAT. LP.When correctly converted you will be able to read LP.
On the Performa all the conversion parts should just be adjustments. Remove the oven racks,remove the oven base pan,remove the oven flame spreader pan to access the safety valve. Take a 1/2 inch open end wrench and tighten the orifice on top of the gas safety valve. Tighten it until it is snug.Remove the top burners and raise the top to access the surface gas valves.Tighten the valve spuds until snug. Re-assemble all parts.Turn the gas back on and lite the burners. Turn them high and low to make sure they stay lit. If any burner is not right tighten or loosen the orifice spud for that burner only. All air shutter adjustments should be full open,

Conversion from electric to lp gas


Simple answer NO.

Unless Jenn-air has a conversion kit. (highly doubt this)
It would be a serious undertaking to switch out 2 burners for LP use.
Gas tubes, igniters, electronics, regulator, gas jets.
Not to mention the modifications changes needed to the stove top to make all this work. That gas regulator has to go somewhere and piping from tank/regulator/burners.

Not saying it can't be done mind you.
But think about it long and hard before committing to this job.
Small gas leak can become a huge headache later.

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,

The pilot adjustment screw is located on the back side of the oven temperature thermostat. Lift the cook top to access it. Use a flat screwdriver to adjust... counter clockwise= bigger flame.

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


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.

Gas cook top


Most of the time when I come out for a service call with this problem, it is usually because the burner cap is not seated properly on the base. Look at the burner and make sure there are no uneven gaps. Most of the time you will have to rotate the burner cap till a notch or pin "seats" into place. Most burner caps just sit on the bases, and so they get knocked off or moved when the cooktop is cleaned or installed. Hope this helps!
