To change from lp to Ng the change required is different jets in the burners Nothing more
go to a shop that sells gas cookers. B B Qs and they will have the jets in stock
ask as to adjust the air shroud to keep the air mixture right
If you only changed the gas regulator for use with LP (the regulator located at the connection of the gas service) then you still need to change the orifices for all burners, top and oven. Of course I assume this model can be converted for use with LP. Some models cannot. A new range that can be converted for LP typically includes the needed LP orifices. A card with the LP orifices is typically located at the gas regulator.
Hotpoint supplies the orifices and instructions with each range for converting. It is just that it is hidden, they attach it to the gas regulator. The regulator is near the bottom back typically. Here is a cut out from your use and care manual.
CONVERTING TO LP GAS (or converting back to natural gas from LP) This range leaves the factory set for use with natural gas. If you want to convert to LP gas, the conversion must be performed by a qualified LP gas installer. The conversion instructions and LP orifices can be found attached to the range next to the pressure regulator. Keep these instructions and the orifices in case you want to convert back to natural gas.
the burner orfices will have to be changed ans pressure reg / some have either /or reg / just turn lever to the fuel you are using . but always change the orfices to gas or lp . blk is lp copper nat gas .. you can probably do it with out the instructions it's very simple .. if the other set of orfice's are not in or on range then order them for your model . ..mm
if this is a new stove need to change the pin in the regulator ,
then need to replace the stove top orifices from gas to l.p.
check under the stove for pieces they tape them under there by the regulator -- that how i found mine under my new jenn air
check the stove companies web site for a users manual also
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.
The fact that it worked for 3 days and then failed suggests that it is probably something else. You may have a non-resttable thermal fuse that opened or the gas valve itself isn't functioning. Can you see the glow of the igniter when it starts? Are you sure the burner is getting gas from the inlet valve?
These are the basic components to investigate.. Let me know the outcome of these checks and we can get you going again if none of these work.. Regards
