Question about Maytag Kitchen Ranges

Open Question

I have a Maytag MGR8674AS gas range that I set up today. I switched all the fittings from NG to LP as instructed, as I use propane. The stovetop works great, but the oven and broiler will ignite, only stay lit for a few seconds, and then go out. Then you will hear the ignitor trying to reignite, but nothing. After a period of time, the circle starts over again. It isn't locked and it isn't in demo mode. What should I look for?

I have the same problem intermittently on my Super Cap 465. After reading the following quote from another site, "There have been cases where radio waves, electronic signals and sometimes something as strange as dimmers in lights have caused some weird problems with some computer panels in stoves like these", I tried turning off lights that might be on the same circuit and wouldn't you know it, the oven igniter circuit worked.

SOURCE: The oven of GE Profile range simply stopped igniting

If it is a ge it would have a glow bar ignitor, either a flat rectangle shaped or a round ignitor. That is want the problem is 95% of the time. It is pretty easy to do. The floor of the stove will come right out and it probably has two screws in the back corners you can see. Remove them and the floor will lift out and you can see the burner and the ignitor.

Maytag range Natural gas jets to Propane jets


it is a simple replacement but the problem is properly adjusting the air shrouds to get the right air/ gas mixture to burn correctly
lpg jets are available from a gas supply shop and because of the dangerous nature of gas , I would suggest that you have an accredited gas fitter do the conversion

I need to convert from gas to propane and I need a owners manual


Which model of range do you have? Maytag has owner's manuals for many of their appliances here: https://www.maytag.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/OCManualsLiteratureSearchView?catalogId=10562&langId=-1&storeId=10212&krypto=5QgxQhneFliXuEuX564wSQ%3D%3D&ddkey=http:OCManualsLiteratureSearchView . Enter the model number and click Search. Most ranges will have the serial number on a plaque below the display, on the frame of the oven (behind the oven door), on the frame of the storage drawer (visible when the drawer is open) or near the legs of the unit.

Often the conversion kit is sold with the range and is attached to the back of the range near the regulator. The instructions are in the kit. (Note this should be done by a professional. Your propane company may have a person available to do the conversion.) If the conversion kit is not supplied with the range, you should be able to order it from the manufacturer. (Some manufacturers will only ship the kit to the service person who will do the swap.)

Please add a comment with your model of range for additional information. (There are some manufacturers who do not supply conversion kits and you must order the correct range from the factory.)

The conversion is usually straight forward. Swap the regulator from NG to LP by turning over the part (it's labeled clearly) in the regulator. Using a small nut driver, swap the orifices for the cooktop. Do one at a time and check the labels. (My range conversion kit has a different set of letters on the NG orifices (A-G) and the LP orifices (L-R). Others use different colors for each orifice.) Then open the oven and swap the broiler orifice and the bake orifice. Rotate the air flow valve appropriately.

I hope this helps.

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.

I have a galaxy gas range says it is set up for gas or propane how do i switch it and is it expensive


The cost of the parts is low. Many ranges have the conversion kit attached to the back of the unit. (If installed, pull the range away from the wall and then check the back. Another likely spot is behind the storage drawer.) If the parts aren't provided, then check your manual for information on ordering the conversion kit. (At least one range I've researched had a price under $20 for the conversion kit.)

The biggest cost is to get a licensed installer to do the conversion. This is required to maintain the warranty. It is also required by law in some states. Talk to your gas company (most appliance shops do not have staff that handle propane conversions).

The instructions are included with the conversion kit. It's fairly simple and takes a screwdriver, wrench and ratchet with correct sized socket (mine took a 10mm). A nutdriver can be helpful. Check your instructions for any other tools you need. With the stove unplugged and disconnected from the gas supply, turn over the LP/NG part in the regulator (do not remove the entire regulator). Adjust the air flow damper. Remove the current orifices for both the range and the stovetop. For best results do these one at a time (the orifices are labeled and are for specific locations). In the oven, you need to remove a few covers to reach the various dampers and orifices.

Then connect the stove back to the incoming gas line and power supply (use a new flexible gas line for the connection to the regulator). Check for leaks. Then you may need to adjust the flame for each of the inlets. The stovetop burners usually have a set screw behind the knob so turn on the flame and then remove the knob. The set screw takes a very small screwdriver.

I hope this helps.

(please note I did this from memory after reading the directions on the new stove we had delivered about 2 months ago. That was an LG stove so some differences in the instructions are inevitable.)

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.

GE stovetop with propane, too hot to simmer


I think you are right. Check for an optional valve for propane in your service manual or online on an appliance parts website. You can look up a schematic of all the basic parts.

Changing from natural gas to lp.


By getting a gas license! LOL

Remember to tip your waitress! I'll be here all week - Goodnight!

Alright...got it out of my system...here we go:

1. Find out if a conversion kit exists. Answer: Yes it does...in fact it came with it originally. If it had me doing the install, I would have taped the kit to the back of the range.
http://www.fixya.com/support/p106248-kitchenaid_kgsa906pss_gas_kitchen_range/manual-13680/page-7

....and I quote, "IMPORTANT: Your cooktop is factory-set for use with natural gas. If you wish to use L.P. Gas, an L.P. Gas Conversion Kit is included with your new range. Models with the TripleTier Flame Burner will include a TripleTier L.P. Gas Conversion Kit and a kit for standard ranges. See “Installation Instructions” for details on making this conversion.
2. Obtain the kit. This is more difficult than actually doing the conversion. Unless you have a dealer nearby, I'd simply call Kitchenaid directly: (1.800.461.5681) They will either send it to you directly (quite possibly for FREE) or point you in the right direction.
3. The kit will come with instructions, but briefly, here's what you're getting into: The kit will consist of 1-3 orifices. These will reduce the amount of flow going to the burner(s).
Why? Two reasons: a) Propane burns hotter and b) Propane moves quicker than N.G.
You might need: Allan Keys, Screwdrivers, Channel Locks, Adjustable Wrench.
You'll just disassemble the manifold, install the orifice(s), and GO!

Good Luck.
