I have a range model LRG3095ST my husband converted to propane LP & on very last part he tightened the orifice too tight on the orifice nozzle for the broiler & it broke off. Can I still use my oven until the part comes? There would not be LP gas going through that broken nozzle orifice would there?

Nearly every natural gas / LP operated appliance can be converted to work with the other fuel pretty easily. You will need to change the orifice in the burner & pilot. Contact your LP provider and they should be able to supply the correct parts / perform the labor for this job for you.
You didn't state whether you used a DCS conversion kit or not. I was able to find conversion instructions for a model similar to yours (not an exact match) but it will give you an idea as to what all is involved. DCS RGSC 305 Instructions Manual
You need a Gas tech/plumber there urgently!!!! If the gas jets in your oven had not been changed to accomodate LP gas then the orifice on your existing jets are still to large in diameter. In other words your using Natural Gas jets ( lower pressure jets) for Lp which has a much higher pressure than Nat. gas, this can be extremely dangerous, & could cause major problems. Again I strongly suggest you contact a Gas tech/Plumber & do not use your oven until it has beeen checked by a professional.Good luck
Hi, to convert from NG to LP is easier in some ways but harder in others. The pressure part is easy because LP runs at the same pressure that comes into the house so the regulator is normally locked wide open to allow a direct by-pass. You could just as easily remove the regulator and plumb straight in from the houseline. You don't say what model but usually the sealed cooktop burners will need smaller orifices and the oven and broiler orifices are adjustable. If that is the case, the oven and broiler orifices can be tightened until they bottom out which be the correct output for LP. You would need to remove the cooktop orifices and find replacements which are correct for LP, these are non-brand specific. Honestly, if you go to repairclinic.com and enter the brand and model number, I'd be surprised if you couldn't find the conversion kit. Even the Dacor site should be helpful. I found many different kits available at the repairclinic.com site even without a model number. Best of luck.
The needle maybe damaged or missing inside of the hood, unscrew the hood and remove it, look at the needle and make sure it is intact, put a little liquid soap into the hood threads and screw it back on until it bottoms out, it will be much easier to feel it bottoming out if it has lube on it, if this does not work, call them and have them send you a LP specific hood rather than the adjustable type.
on the regulator there is a 1/2" nut, made of aluminum. loosen the nut, thur it around and screw it back in, there is a "NAT" on one side, and a "LP" on the other side, make sure the "LP" is facing out if you are using propane, and "NAT", if you are using Natural Gas. Very simple, all you need is a 1/2" wrench, or a small adjustable wrench,
If it is possible, then the orifice has to be changed. The regulator may need to be changed as well. I am a certified LP technician for recreational vehicles, but I don't know enough about this particular appliance to say for sure if it can be converted. The best thing is to contact Miele directly, but this sort of conversion always requires a different orifice. Note that propane, butane, and natural gas are all forms of LP (Liquified petroleum), so conversion between the 3 is usually possible
Contact Miele directly via their website. This would require an orifice change if it is possible for this appliance. Since natural gas, butane, and propane are all forms of LP (Liquified Petroleum), it is usually, but not always, possible.
