All gas stoves are set up for natural gas. Before using on propane, the oven and burners need to be converted for propane operation. Refer to the installation manual for conversion requirements for your particular stove.

How do I switch my electric stove over to propane?


You can change a natural gas stove to propane or go the opposite, but you cannot make an electric stove into a gas stove. You will need to buy a new stove if you want to go that route. Sorry.

My brand new GE Profile gas range produces a black soothe. All my pots are covered with in black. How do I fix this problem


Hi. Usually when this occurs on a brand new unit the user is using a natural gas configured range on LPG. You may have to get a NG to LPG conversion kit to reconfigure the regulator. On most newer regulators it is a matter of unswcreing the plastic side cap and flipping the inner plunger over. The conversion process is in the installation instructions. Additionally the Bake and Broil burners for the oven will also need adjusted per instructions. There are usually orifices in a package in a NEW range for the conversion of the cook top burner control valves. Then the air gap on the side of each burner gas tube will need to be adjusted by losening the screw on the side of the burner gas tube and adjusting the airflow until you get a nice 2 color blue flame. Tighten the screws after you make the air adjustment.

If you do NOT have the manual please respond with a model number so I can try and find you one.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Propane was turned off for unrelated problem propane turned back on stove will not lite


If your stove has a standing pilot, it will need to be re-lit.

If this does not help, state the model of your stove.

Yellow flame blackening pots and oven


Are you on LP/Propane gas or Natural gas?
Was the range set up by a technician?

There is usually a "shutter door" adjustment at the end of the burner to control the amount of air that is mixed with the gas. If you just did a conversion the air fuel mixture likely needs adjustment. You want a blue flame with faint yellow tips or optimal adjustment. Too little air causes soot and too much air is noisy and wastes fuel. Remove the burner (as for cleaning) and open the shutter door on it, replace, and retry until the correct burn is achieved. I don't have direct answer for the Kenmore. Did you try using the model number in Google or Ask? If you don't get a hit the call Sears Service and request a manual.

Flames are extremely uneven and high


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.

What could be wrong with a gas stove hot point(2 yrs old)that has lots of black in the oven when using and also black on bottoms of pans when using burners on top? it just started doing this...


The flame is 'yellow tipping'. This means there is incomplete combustion and will leave black soot on everything. Did you recently start using propane? If so the stove will need to be converted to propane use, or the incoming gas pressure is too high. You may need a gas professional to check the gas pressure.
