Question about Tappan TGF303BW Gas Range

Open Question

Gas range BTU requirements?

I'm having my natural gas service modified and need to have a new regulator installed. The contractor needs to know the BTU requirements for my old Tappan gas range (4 burner, self-cleaning oven with broiler). The label is pretty bad, so I couldn't make out a model number, but I got this info: oven upper 10000 btu/hr; oven lower 16000 btu/hr; burners 9000 btu/hr; broiler 14000 btu/hr. There was also a listing for a griddle, which we don't have. What should I tell the contractor?

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.

Hello paultoledoWelcome to fixya.
I'm Huuum and happy to assist you,

You said, You got a 5-year old Tappan gas range. Two of the burners don't ignite, the other two and the oven are fine.
What do you need to do to fix the problem?
Sounds like a yes from where I'm sitting, your right on target, buying a new spark module will fix it.

That sounds like the spark modules.
I think you are correct!

Let me know if you need me!

SOURCE: I have an old (20 years +) Tappanr 4 burner range

chances ar erte hlower oven door , is your broiler, the older models didnt have a seperate broiler inside oven, rather they used 1 burner bar ,and depending on wher oyu place the food you would either bake(above) or broil( under) made sense, just pain in the rear to bend down to use it. as far a knob and gasket , perhaps you can find a model number under the main top assy so we can look up for you

Hi im a plumber/gas fitter who has been asked if i can convert a wildcat 410 (a2) ser 1983 from lpg to ng which is currently in use at a crash repair spray booth is this possible?


Yes look up the gas valve part # and find the LP kit for that model number. It will come with new pilot orifice, new burner orifices and the springs to replace inside the gas valve. Remember that natural gas is .08"wc and LP is a heavier gas it needs to be set at 11"wc .You need a manometer to check the pressure before you light it again .Did you know that propane provides more energy per unit volume than natural gas. Heat is measured in BTUs, or British Thermal Units. Propane provides about 2500 BTUs for the same volume of natural gas that only gives 1000 BTUs.

Can i drill out LP hole in cap for NG


Yes you can, but only if you know the BTU rating of the burners. Then you need to know what size drill bit to use to drill each orifice. Plus you will need to eliminate the LP regulator when you hook it up to your house's already regulated natural gas line. When you hook up any gas appliance, it needs to have it's own shut off valve installed on the gas line. I also like to install a quick-disconnect adapter after the shut off so I can release the hose from the grill and put the grill away when it's not in use. I have LP/Nat gas conversion charts available to look up drill sizes if you need to know more details. Keep in mind, that if the grill does not state the individual burner BTU ratings, but only the total BTU rating, you will have to divide that rating by the number of burners. Douglas

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.

Hello i have a problem with a brand new lxi heater it not lighten .gas is on igntor lite but heater will not lite


What has the contractor who installed it or the dealer who sold it to you said? It is under a manufacturers warranty so if it needs servicing you should leave it to someone in your area who provides warranty service for Jandy. You can locate one on their site.

IT COULD BE THE AIR GAS MIXTURE, ALSO COULD HAVE WRONG SIZE FUEL ORFICE
The sir gas is contorled by an opening ajustment where the gas comes out of orfice. (usualy it turns to make smaller or lager opening. More or less air}

Natural gas to propane


changing from natural to propane requires different jet sizes and repositioning of the air mixture shrouds
working with gas is not in the domain of diy as you have found out so get in a gas fitter to do the conversion properly with out risk of an explosion or fire

Converting Thermos Stainless Grill to natural gas


You have to install a conversion kit for it to work the way you want. The reason is because the orifice in either the valves or the main "jet" that feeds the burner tube has to be changed. Natural gas is really not as efficient as lp gas (propane) because it takes more natural gas to create the same btu output as propane.

In short, your grill will not work if you do not do the conversion. I am including a link that lists the conversion kit for your grill, you can order it there and you can download the assembly manual as well.

Natural gas orifice burners


Before you get too involved, check to see if the natural gas orifices are still with the range. Usually, when the conversion is done, the person who converts the range puts the original natural gas orifices into the holder which contained the LP ones, then replaces it. Look for an inch and a half long metal strip holding the four brass orifices held on by one screw very near the range gas regulator. (the regulator is the part the gas line connects to on the range) Also, look for the conversion instructions in the original installation and set up instructions, or attached to a sheet of paper on the back of the range. You will need to change the plunger in the regulator (Unscrew the cap, flip the plunger around, and replace) and turn the orifice spud on the bake and broiler burners three full turns counter-clockwise also. (using a 1/2 inch open end wrench, counting twelve 1/4 turns) Orifices will require a 7mm or 9/32 inch nut driver or socket to change. The orifices are different for the simmer, regular, and high output burners. (have a "I", "II" and "III" marked on them to help identify them, respectively.) The left two burners are both "regular output" burners, and use the same orifices.

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.
