Hi,
You will need to contact the manufacturer for replacement burner nozzles. As Propane is at a higher pressure, the nozzles need to be smaller in diameter.
You will also need a tank fitting for Propane with a regulator attatched - and a large spanner to attatch it.
Make sure any pipe connector to this is fitted with an approved hose crimp, as "jubilee" type clamps are not recommended.
If you just fit the regulator, the burners can flare dangerously on the high settings - unless it has been designed to be dual fuel originally, and have replacement nozzles.

You need to adapt your range for the propane gas. You need to change the orifices, propane needs a larger opening than natural gas. If you contact your propane company they can help you and some will even do it as a free service (or used to).

Switched from natural gas to propane now oven flames up sides how do I fix? Model#362.75571691



Propane and natural gas are two different fuels and require adjustments to the appliances to which theye are connected. Typically, when converting to propane from natural gas, a pressure regulator and a change in gas jets are required. This is because propane has a different heating value (hotter) and behaves differently.

Also, propane doesn't burn as cleanly as natural gas so after you have made the hardware changes, if you start to smell something in the kitchen, you may need to crack a window slightly to provide for better venting.

Please be careful

Change from natural gas to propane


1.You will need to change the pilot orifice and the burner orifices
2. You may need to change the gas control valve. Some gas control valves are made for natural gas and some are made for LP. They have regulators built-in, that deliver the correct pressure respectively. Natural gas is 3.5 inches of water column, LP is 10 inches of water column.
Some manufacturers sell kits to change the spring in the regulator from Nat to LP
You would need a parts breakdown on the specific model number of your fryer to find the parts you need. Hope this helps.
