Gas Coupler to convert metric threading to US Standard gas pipe

Having difficulty sourcing conversion parts to connect my Gas Cook Top to my standard gas line. Cook top has a Male threaded pipe end extending from the back of the unit. There is no coupler part included with this unit, and I am having trouble sourcing the needed part to connect to standard threading, and down to my gas lead. Anyone else wrestle with this issue? All suggestions welcome. Also, please let me know if there is any specific detail I can post to support responses. Many thanks. CSS

It has to do with the diameter of th holes. The holes for natural gas are much bigger and this sounds like could definitely be your problem.

Try this site for the conversion factor: . 1 Water Column [inch] = 0.0361 pound/square inch (PSI) (to a reasonable number of significant figures).

I hope this helps.

(However, your stove and tank must be very different than mine. We didn't need to adjust the inlet input for the max PSI, just make sure that the incoming pressure was in the standard range for LP. New stove installed last month after old one suffered a failure of the oven valve.)

I am purchasing a home with a kenmore elite gas range model # 790.3670--the seller doesn't seem to know if the oven is electric or gas. What is standard?

Electric or gas would be standard. If this is a stove like in the picture you provided, and is gas on top ... it is probably gas inside. You could always look to see if it has a burner or a calrod. See if there is a setting for Pilot or Igniter. Electric ovens don't need a pilot nor an igiter.

Of course, you could turn it on ... or pull it away from the wall to see what the connection is ... gas pipe or, if electric is involved, a very heavy electric cord - probably 50 amp 220 volts. If it has a small cord plugged into a standard wall outlet ... definitely gas fired. You say the top is gas so there will be a flex pipe for the gas ...

I searched Sears - they claim there is no such model.

Your agent should be able to tell by looking.

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.

No clicking noise when turning the nob..

Most modern gas ranges do have an electric pilot light. This one however does not. Normally you should always get the ignition (clicking noise) whenever you turn the temperature control knob. Provided that the stove is plugged into an electrical source. If you are not, then your ignitor could be out. Replacing it is fairly easy with a difficulty scale of 5/10.

But on to your problem. If you lift the lid on the stove top you will see two holes about halfway between the front and rear burners. Just connect the stove to a gas source and put a match or lighter to this hole. Don't worry, it won't blow up or flare up on you. You will need to do the same thing to the oven. If you open the broiler part of the stove, use a flashlight and look inside. You will see a similar type of gas line. Do the same with a match or lighter.

As with all gas appliances, ALWAYS check your gas lines for leaks using soapy water. If you see bubbles after spraying the solution on, then you have a leak and shouldn't turn the gas on until it's foxed. Use yellow Teflon tape or "pipe dope" on all gas connections.

I converted my 40'' Figidaire range to LP a few years back when I did not have access to natural gas. Now I need to convert it back. I do not still have the old parts and there seems to be no ''Natural gas...

I am having almost the same problem. Frigidaire told me to replace all 5 mixing tubes, ~$385, yeah right. They don't have the orifices itemized as an individual part, so no-one carries them, just the LP conversion kit. Another repair/parts guy advised me to drill out the orifices. Some other threads/blogs give the diameter to drill. Basically, since natural gas is 0.5 psi, you need a larger hole than your current propane orifices provide. Please speak up if you find out anything, I will try to do the same. Good luck.

Oven gas will not flow with pilot lit

There are basically two types of ranges to deal with:

those with sealed top burners, which are pretty much the standard today, and the conventional, 'non-sealed' ones.
While they operate in much the same way, their conversion is usually different. There are still a few ranges that use adjustable sealed burner orifices, but most are 'fixed' and must be individually replaced to convert each burner from one fuel to another.

(An orifice is simply a small brass fitting with a specifically sized hole very accurately drilled through it, and, if adjustable, has a provision to change the size of this hole by turning closed a threaded portion).

Either way, basically what you're doing when going from natural gas to LP is changing to a smaller orifice to allow for the higher pressure supplied by the 'bottled' gas (The available energy in each ft of gas is different too, but for our purpose here that's not important). Natural gas supplies typically run around a pressure of 5.5 inches water column, while LP runs at twice that pressure, averaging around 11 inches.

The orifice through which the gas travels to the burner must be smaller to accommodate this difference.
Adjustable orifices are simply 'snugged' down, clockwise, with a 1/2 inch open-end wrench, to convert them. Nearly all oven burners use these too - more about that in a minute.
Fixed orifices are replaced, and the good news is: the LP parts are usually included with the new range. On some brands (GE being one), the unused set is attached to a storage point on the stove, and this is a great idea. This way, they can't get lost, and if you ever want to convert back, there they are!
The not-so-good news: these little top burner orifices very often require a metric wrench to remove & install. And some can't be changed without a very slender wrench or nut driver.

The top burners won't light after converting from lp to natural gas

Natural Gas needs more O2 than Propane per volume to fully oxidize(burn). Essentially all you need to do is enlarge the air intake holes. 15% increase in diameter of the holes is a good starting point. That equates to 25% increase in volume. You can also buy a conversion kit. Please use the pipe thread sealant and follow the instructions carefully.

Converting a GE Profile Gas Range from LP to natural gas

GE ships gas ranges set for natural gas, with the LP orifices included, usually on a metal tab held with one screw right near the regulator (where the gas connects to the range). If the range was converted to LP, the person who did the conversion was suppose to put the natural gas orifices back in that holder. If they are missing, comment back on the exact model number and I can look up the part number(s) for you.
