You will need to contact your local appliance parts store with your model and serial number and see if a lp conversion kit is made for your unit. you will also need a monometer to check gas pressures.

How to change from natural gas to propane


Hi Rodney.

the main change from natural gas to propane is that propane has a bit higher energy content than natural gas, so you may heat things a bit faster. The particulars will depend on your specific make and model of range, but, for instance, with my KitchenAid gas range, the primary difference was getting a slightly different connection orifice made to give proper propane flow and pressure. The install kit may also have listings for necessary delivery pressure ranges from you propane source. If the range is built in, it might be a bit of a pain to get at the gas connections, and it's best done by a professional who will know the proper fittings, seals, and pressure tests to do to make sure you aren't leaking gas all over your kitchen.

That said, it's likely not a particularly big deal.

Good Luck!

Whirlpool model SF385PEEQ0 Gas stove was on Natural gas we have propane is there an adj or part needed as burns yellow flame!


You need to adapt your range for the propane gas. You need to change the orifices, propane needs a larger opening than natural gas. If you contact your propane company they can help you and some will even do it as a free service (or used to).

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

Tappan Range Model TGF351ESJ Nat. Gas to Propane


Yes you can convert the range

2. Provide an adequate gas supply.
This unit is pre-set to operate on 4" natural gas manifold
pressure. Aconvertible pressure regulator is connected to the
manifold and MUST be connected inseries with the gas supply
line. If the LP/Propane conversion kit has been used, follow
instructions provided with the kit for converting the pressure
regulator to LP/Propane use. The LP kit can be found on the
back side of the range (some models).

I yours does not have the kit on back go to sears to get one.

Good Luck

Natural gas to propane


GE is one company which generally includes all necessary parts and instructions for conversion to LP with the range without having to order or purchase anything extra. Check the mini manual in the white envelope pasted to the back of the range for instructions. Generally, the LP orifices are in a metal holder near the gas regulator (right where the gas connects to the range). You will have to flip the plunger in the center of the regulator and turn down the collar (with a 1/2 inch open end wrench) on the oven burner and broil burner about 3 full turns. Air shutters are usually OK without any adjustments.
