    we have the orifices on the jenn-air double oven freestanding range and want to convert from natural gas to propane but the orifices in the oven have different numbers from the ones that came in the plastic bag that we want to install. How can we tell which new one goes with which old one when the numbers and letters are all different? Help.

All stoves in this country come from the factory with orifices designed to use natural gas. To switch over to propane, the orifices have to be changed over. Contact your propane provider and they will obtain the proper orifices for your range. They may even install them for free. good luck.

Can I convert a 450rb from propane to natural gas


The simple answer is yes. However you will need to convert it. Simple process for a gas fitter, they will put a natural gas regulator on and possibly change the jets. Natural gas runs at a higher pressure than Propane. What ever you do, do not run without conversion, it will fail with possible fire or explosion.

I've just converted my stove from natural gas to propane and the oven and broiler flame are both to high, how can I lower them?


When converting from natural gas to propane you have to switch the regulator to propane. then on most modern stoves you have to turn the orifice hoods down to adjust for the higher pressure of propane. there are some stoves that you have to purchase a propane conversion kit with different orifices for the burners and oven burners.

How do I know if my Caloric Heritage gas range is propane or natural gas? It is a used stove that was given to us


Stoves are usually sent from the factory set for natural gas. they have to be converted to Propane. If it is set for propane the flame will be very low on natural gas. If set for natural gas on propane the flame will be very large. The orifices for natural gas are much larger than propane orifices. and the regulator is converted acordingly.

Gas stove need to switch to propane


Hi,

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.

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

all i for sure is that for propane gas you will need smaller burner jets because of the higher pressure. ive done this the other way around, converting from propane to natural gas by drilling the jets bigger with tiny drill bits
