The oven safety valve has to be cranked down for propane.themobilian_815.jpg
Get a good fitting wrench and tighten this spud down and open the air shutter on the burner.
This video shows how to tackle a crank down and flip type LP conversion whilst yours might be a bit more fancy it still must be adjusted like any other stove:

Yes when converting to or from LP to Natural gas the orfices in the burners should be replaced. If you can get a model number off of the stove try searching online for orfices.

Flame too high on gallery gas stove


Hello Carlos - Does you range have an LP conversion kit installed? If so, I would recommend verifying that unit is set to appropriate fuel and fuel conversion kit is finished. Also trying adjusting the pressure regulator and/or air shutter.

Brown TM210-4 kitchen range... how do i switch from LP Gas to Nat. Gas on this model? Is it just a regulator adjustment? or do i have to change the orifices as well?


Both. If this is a sealed top range, then you will have to change out the orifices and flip the cap on the regulator. If this is an open top style range (the top lifts up around the burners) then the orifices need to be adjusted and the regulator cap flipped. The oven/broiler orifices will also need to be changed or adjusted, depending on which kind they have. Some older models also require converting the oven thermostat from LP to natural gas (and vice versa) by turning the screw to the correct marked setting. If you have your owner's manual, it explains the conversion in it. If not we may be able to find it online for you to download. Douglas

Yellow flame after an Lp conversion


I remember having a stove with an adjustable orifice in the oven. It looked like a double nut arrangement. If that is what you find, tightening them to each other shrinks the size. Should turn fairly easy, do not force. You may also find a pilot adjustment behind the oven control knob. Hope this helps.

Change over to LP on whirlpool oven


All ovens come from the factory set up for natural gas. To convert to liquip propane you must change the orifices. Once you have the proper orifices, you will be able to make the adjustment you desire. You can contact your lp supplier and have them send their techie out as they do this as a free service.

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.

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.
www.hotpoint.com
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.

Converting aan LP oven to gas


In most cases the pressure regulator has to be changed or adjusted. The orfices on each burner, oven, broiler and surface burner may need to be changed also. Sometimes they can be adjusted. Sometimes the threads on the pipe are different also. This is to prevent accidental connection to the wrong fuel. The big difference is the gas pressure. LP is usually around 10 - 12 lbs and natural gas is usually around 3 lbs. Properly adjusted you will like natural gas much better than LP as it is slightly hotter. The information will be in the instruction book and also on the Jenn air web site. Whirlpool owns both Maytag and Jenn aire so check all sites. The conversion kit is usually less than $50.

Lp flames to top of oven


You need to tighten down the orifice spud for the bake burner. Remove drawer in bottom of oven. Look for bottom of burner tube, where the shutter adjustment is. Right below it is the orifice spud. Usually a goldish color. Take 1/2 inch open end wrench and tighten until it stops. Do-not overtighten! Try it now. If flames are still to high, tighten a little more. Repeat if needed.

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.

Changed from natural gas to propane when new oven flames up the side top burners ok


Just bought a Kenmore and did this conversion myself. You do not change the oven nozzle (jets) but have to wrench it down with a 1/2" wrench as per instructions. After I did this the falme was high as you described. I wrenched it down further and adjusted the air shuttle and it was fine. The brioler is done the same. The wrench adjustment is tight so be aware.
