Question about Kitchen Ranges

GE Range Model JGBP35BEA2BB

Bought this used. Converted it to LP. Burners work fine. The oven comes on, but takes quite a while to fire up. While on the gas goes on and off and we can smell the propane. Obviously I turn it off. There seems to be a block in the line to the oven. We do not have the manual and need to remedy the situation, hopefully without having to call in a technician.

FT I concur. When it is working fine it should be so bright you cannot look atit for long. If it is a mellow orange color it is bad, replace it. Theonly way the gas oven valvewould be bad is if it is open and has no continuity.Check this out

Sounds like the oven ignitor is weak. You can look at the ignitor. If it is kind of white looking or doesn't have a full glow when on that is most likely the problem. Especially if it does eventually light now. You can expect to pay $80 to $100 for the part.

Whirlpool WFG510S0AS2 range - stove burners work just fine, but both the oven and broiler does not stay lit. NOTE - this unit has been converted from natural gas to LP


when the lp conversion is done , it is normally just a jet size change that is done
however the air shroud has to also be adjusted to get a clean blue burn of the flame
The just jet change results in a slightly yellow flame which is incomplete burn of the gas and that creates carbon build up at the jet and burners causing partial blockage
I would suggest that you call in an accredited gas fitter to check the problem and if necessary , clean the jets and adjust the air shroud

Changed maxitrol regulator to lp to much pressure


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.

Converted HotPoint RGA720 to LP, burners and oven work fine, all pilots flames are still too high?


I have this model too and have had to replace two thermocouples because the pilot is so high it frys them. We replaced the whole modulator last time and it still goes out so I have to relight The pilot is at the lowest setting, it's a GE/Hotpoint issue that was not recalled. I do like the hot 125 degree oven for drying sun dried tomatoes and keeping plates warm.

I got a GE gas range (model JGBS22) from a co-worker. She had converted it from gas to propane. I just had a plumber hook it up to natural gas but, even with the conversion manual, he couldn't change the...


There should be a set of orifices for each burner as well as the oven and broiler. When the unit was converted to propane, these orifices should have been replaced and the ones for gas put in with the conversion kit installation information. The kit should have been reattached near the pressure regulator.

If the kit was missing the orifices, then, yes, you are missing pieces. Check with your coworker if the conversion kit was missing. If you have the kit, it can be easily done by any appliance installer (or repair person) licensed for handling NG. (At least on our range, the conversion kit installation was straight forward. Every orifice was clearly labeled with the labels different for each burner and for the gas/LP kits (ABCD (NG) vs MNOP (LP)) .) The regulator is the only part that switched for LP or NG without the kit.

As I recall, the only tools we needed for the top burners were a small wrench (10 mm) and a small flat blade screwdriver. Remove one orifice and put in the appropriate replacement. Then adjust the burners so that they didn't blow out when the oven was opened or quickly turned from high to low (for the simmer burner). The oven and broiler took a bit longer. Several screws had to be removed to get at the orifices. Then the air flow had to be adjusted for the incoming gas.

I hope this helps.

Swithed to LP


Natural Gas has a pressure at about 1/4oz psi. Propane runs at a much higher pressure 8 psi to 15 psi. For your safety do not use the oven until it is garenteed that the oven is rated for LP Gas!
Hope, this helps, Sea Breeze

Oven won't stay alight . has never worked from new . have checked all thermocouple connections all seem's well. probe is tight and in correct position.


To post a more specific solution you need to have the model number, but with the info you have given, I'm guessing that you have hooked the range up to LP gas and the range was not fully converted from natural to LP. If all burners burn nice, whomever converted the range may have missed one step. Many ranges with pilot lights have a small slot head screw behind the oven temp set knob which turns one way for natural, one way for LP.

Sounds like that ignitor is weak.  When the ignitor glows it builds up resistance to the gas valve for gas to come in.  If it sometimes takes 10 min then the proper resistance isn't there and this will give you that gas smell.  Replace the ignitor and this should solve your problem.  Can expect to pay $80 - $100 for the part.
