    sorry didnt realize this would be posted under another product.

  • dv8nfool Jan 30, 2009

    i switched the valving in the regulator, all 4 orfices for the top burners, the orfice in the broiler area for the oven, and the two screw type orfices for the oven thermostat and the one that looks as if it controlls the oven pilot. Prioror to me realizing it was set up for NG and converting it; i had hooked every thing up and turned it on, every thing but the oven worked. in its NG state the same thing it is doing now happend then, no pilot, no gas smell, no nothing.

  • dv8nfool Jan 31, 2009

    in the manual it says to set the temp knob to off and light it with a match. i have done this to no avail.

  • dv8nfool Jan 31, 2009

    thanks, that got it lit. but now the pilot light looks and sounds like an inferno, and i have the adjustment cut all the way back. when i opened it up more it just got bigger. there is a copper or bronze sensor on it and it turns red hot. is this normal?

  • dv8nfool Feb 01, 2009

    it looks like i will have to get some of those screw adjustment things. i took out the one that was suposed to convert my oven to propane and the orfice is the same size as the nat. the ones for the top burners were signifcantly smaller

    I think you are on the track to getting it fixed.

    It does sound like its too hot. You did convert the oven right to propane right? That's a thermocouple. If its too hot that will shorten the life of the thermocouple Red hot is really too hot. It also should not roar. A small faint sound is OK. My guess is something isn't converted.

    Did it say to push the knob in while dialed in off position and to hold it in while lighting? I suspect its not letting gas through because it "knows" the pilot is out and you may need to override the control to light it. If the gas to the pilot originates from the gas control valve then that's very likely the case. If there is a sensor on the pilot that feeds back to the control valve then that's the kind it is. The pilot level is usually adjustable perhaps it needs to be opened up some. These are just some thoughts you might find helpful. Not knowing exactly what you have there I can't be more specific.

    Does the owner's manual indicate that the oven ignition is protected from pilot flame out? If so there should be an oven control valve and an override button on it for somewhere to get the pilot lit on it. In this case there will also be a flame sensor or thermocouple at or near the pilot flame that connects to the control valve. It sounds like the the pilot flame is monitored on this model. I don't have a user or service manual for this one. If you do, there should be mention of it in there under "pilot lighting procedures" or something like that. I can't think of any other reason why the gas feed would be completely off. Its not unusual for the oven pilot to be monitored but not the top burners. This is because the oven pilot is usually larger (has a bigger flame) and therefore is a bigger hazard when not lit.

    When you switched over did you just convert the stove top burners or did you also install a kit in the oven burner?

The pilot adjustment screw is located on the back side of the oven temperature thermostat. Lift the cook top to access it. Use a flat screwdriver to adjust... counter clockwise= bigger flame.

SOURCE: LP conversion for Thermador 4 burner range top

I have a Thermadore 6 burner gas cooktop PCG366E purchased January 08. I purchased the LP conversion kit, they only make one kit for all models. The instructions included with the kit were written for an older model and have not been updated by Thermador. The gas regulator is located next to gas inlet pipe. You have to get at it from above. Remove the 2 star burners over that side of the cooktop. You will need a 20mm socket to remove the nut at the center of the star burner. Lift it off and disconnect the wire to the ignitor ( You need to push on the spring lock in order to seperate the the connector terminal). Remove the stainless steel pan and then remove the metal pan underneath ( you will need a Torxs bit for this screw or vise grips). You should now see the regulator. At the top of the regulator is a cap with the letters NG visible. Twist this a 1/4 turn ccw, lift up and turn over to expose the letters LP reinsert. The regulator is now ready. You will need to replace the orifice tips at each burner. Use a 7mm socket with an extension. Put a piece of tape in the socket to hold the orifice in place while you insert it. You also need to adjust the valves. You must pull off the knobs and and remove the trim bezel. If you look through the screw hole on the right you will see a screw head (bypass screw). Insert long skinny flat blade screwdriver through the hole and turn the screw CW all the way (about 1/4 to 1/2 turn in my case). My cooktop had two burners with a low simmer feature, This devise is located in front of the bypass screw. It has a hole in it but does not align well with the head of the bypass screw and makes it difficult to turn the scew. Thats it, I hope this info has been helpful. I have not yet connected the propane therefore have not tested the unit but it should work.

SOURCE: bottom burner in oven dose not work but top burner work why

Hello, The wire going to the bake element could be burned in two. Pull the range out and take the back off ( make sure you unplug it)., check the wire going to the bake element for any shorted, burned, or broken spots. The wire will lead all the way to the thermostat on the control panel. If the wire is good, you have a bad thermostat. The thermostat part number is.
part # 74005019 price $98.97
This part is listed as NO LONGER AVAILABLE at the manufacturer so you should really get one as fast as you can, or it will be gone for good. I hope this will help.

Why does the oven burner seem to be getting too much gas?

Possible problem with the gas regulator allowing too much gas through the system. On LP systems the regulator should be on the storage tank. The regulator on the range usually has a changeable cap and plunger. One direction is for LP and the other direction is NAT gas. In the LP position, the plunger actually holds the range regulator wide open letting the one on the storage tank do the job.

GE Range - oven flames too high after regulator replacement and self clean

You need a Gas tech/plumber there urgently!!!!
If the gas jets in your oven had not been changed to accomodate LP gas then the orifice on your existing jets are still to large in diameter. In other words your using Natural Gas jets ( lower pressure jets) for Lp which has a much higher pressure than Nat. gas, this can be extremely dangerous, & could cause major problems.
Again I strongly suggest you contact a Gas tech/Plumber & do not use your oven until it has beeen checked by a professional.Good luck

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

I just bought a newer "Kenmore" Gas range. my probem is it is set up for natural gas and i use LP gas. Well it came with the LP gas conversion kit. I followed the directions carefully and the range-top...

Remember this: Crank down and flip. You must tighten down all the top and the oven valve orifices and open all the hutters and flip the nut on the regulator. crank down and flip.

Can this gas range be converted to lp gas maytag performa

moz-screenshot.pngmoz-screenshot-1.pngTurn off the gas supply.
Locate the gas valve regulator. Unscrew the top cap on the regulator,turn it over and re-install it.It should be marked NAT. LP.When correctly converted you will be able to read LP.
On the Performa all the conversion parts should just be adjustments. Remove the oven racks,remove the oven base pan,remove the oven flame spreader pan to access the safety valve. Take a 1/2 inch open end wrench and tighten the orifice on top of the gas safety valve. Tighten it until it is snug.Remove the top burners and raise the top to access the surface gas valves.Tighten the valve spuds until snug. Re-assemble all parts.Turn the gas back on and lite the burners. Turn them high and low to make sure they stay lit. If any burner is not right tighten or loosen the orifice spud for that burner only. All air shutter adjustments should be full open,

Converting from natural gas to propane

Where do all orifices go on anything gas? Right there where the burner meets gas valve. The air shutter sits right in front of the orifice for proper air to gas ratio right.Go out and look at yer gas grill. Where the burners meet the gas valve ye shall find the orifice.

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.
