I remember having a stove with an adjustable orifice in the oven. It looked like a double nut arrangement. If that is what you find, tightening them to each other shrinks the size. Should turn fairly easy, do not force. You may also find a pilot adjustment behind the oven control knob. Hope this helps.

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

Tip

Changing your gas appliance from natural gas to LP or vice versa.


You have an LP gas stove which you really like and would like to take to a new home but the new home has a natural gas hookup. Since natural gas is already available it would be convenient to be able to use it. Can you convert your unit over to work on natural gas?

Yes it is possible to convert any LP gas appliance to natural gas or from natural gas to LP. The only difference is the size of the orifice used in the burner.

LP gas is composed of a much larger molecule than natural gas and requires a larger orifice to output the same amount of gas as a natural gas unit at the same setting. Therefore if you used an LP stove on natural gas it would produce too much heat and burn rather intensely. If you used a natural gas stove on LP it would not have much flame at all. You can see the problem. The solution is also obvious. You need the correct orifice.

Changing the orifice is easy. It is located in the middle of the burner and unscrews out of the unit. Install the new one the opposite way. Do not overtighten it.Usually the burners are made of soft metal and can strip easily.

The parts you would need are available at most good appliance stores but I would recommend the following site http://www.repairclinic.com . The parts will be cheaper at repairclinic. They have parts for almost any brand and a great search engine. They also have excellent videos showing how to make the repair.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

Want to convert from natural gas to lp propane


A conversion usually consist of new burner(s)/nozzle(s)/orrifice(s) and either a new regulator/gas valve..

Some gas cook stoves or ranges come with the ability to run on either fuel and the spare nozzle or orrifice will be attached somewhere on the stove.. usually under the range top.. the gas valve may have a small lever that you simply move to the preferred fuel setting.. NAT or LP.

The appliance must have a rating plate that states it can be converted.. and if so..typically a conversion kit will be available or may have been included in the appliance package.

LP Gas runs at a higher pressure.. making a broad statement here.. converting from Natural to LP is more dangerous if the proper steps are not followed then converting from LP to Natural.. which typically just results in a weak flame.. regardless. it's still dangerous.

Many modern appliances will have a warning label stating it can only be used with a certain type of fuel. Heed the warning.

If your appliance did not ship with the alternate fuel kit or has a warning label.. do not attempt to convert it.. it will be much safer and cheaper to buy the proper appliance.

Best of luck.. and be careful

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.

Change over to LP on whirlpool oven


All ovens come from the factory set up for natural gas. To convert to liquip propane you must change the orifices. Once you have the proper orifices, you will be able to make the adjustment you desire. You can contact your lp supplier and have them send their techie out as they do this as a free service.

Gas range burner flame too high and too yellow.


Did it work OK in that location before the changes?
Sounds like you used Natural gas parts instead of LP.
Lp orifices have smaller holes than Nat.
