Step 6:
To prepare the new unit for LP gas you need to adjust several items. First you will need to replace the range orifices or spuds. These are individually sized with marks and colors.

Using a nut driver, loosen the old spud and replace with the new one.The trick to keeping from dropping the spud down inside the range is to use a small piece of aluminum foil between the driver and the spud. This should provide enough "grip".
If you do drop one down inside, you'll need torx wrenches to disassemble the burner units and get inside.

tighten_orifica_on_broiler-s.jpgThe oven orifices need to be adjusted. Using an open-end wrench, tighten down the brass fitting on the oven burner valve.
Step 9:
There may be two orifices, one for the broiler and one for the main oven burner.

You will need to reverse the plastic pin in the regulator underneath the range. Remove the hex nut and flip the plastic pin and reassemble the nut.
Do not over tighten!
The last step is to open the air shutters on each burner as per directions included with the range conversion kit.

I've just converted my stove from natural gas to propane and the oven and broiler flame are both to high, how can I lower them?

When converting from natural gas to propane you have to switch the regulator to propane. then on most modern stoves you have to turn the orifice hoods down to adjust for the higher pressure of propane. there are some stoves that you have to purchase a propane conversion kit with different orifices for the burners and oven burners.

I have a 1920 Garland gas/wood stove that was running on nat gas and I want to convert to propane. Anyone know how this is done

To go from natural gas to propane you need to change the orffice where the gas feed comes out into burner. I the propane orifice feed hole is a different size.
You should be able to get this from a furnace contractor. They did this for me when I went back to natural gas.

Although the natural gas orifices for the stove top burners were replaceable with propane orifices, many ovens/broilers orifices are simply adjustable using a 1/2" open end wrench to convert from one gas to another. Some brands are adjustable and some have to be changed out. It depends on the make and model. Do you have your owner's manual? It contains detailed info on converting your unit. I included a link below to choose from the list to download your manual. You'll need your exact model # listed on your stove. Pull out the bottom drawer and look at the data plate for the model # and then find it on the list for the correct manual. Douglas

I have a Frigidaire Stove, Model # FGF316ASA. It was changed from propane to natural gas. The oven works well. The burners, however, will only burn a low flame. Is there a solution for this?

When converting an appliance from propane gas to natural sometimes a technician will drill the orifice to a larger size rather than replace the orifices. Either way is fine, but sometimes the orifices don't get drilled to the correct size. The regulator must be on the propane setting if it is a convertible regulator. If your oven is working fine.... the top burner orifices probably need to be checked that they are the correct size. A simple fix.

Stove converted from natural gas to propane burners work fine but oven has about 8'' of yellow flame and comes up over diverter into oven. air shutter makes no difference full open or full close and...

The orifice, holes that the gas comes out to the burner)s) for the oven was not changed out.Gas is measured in inches, Natural gas runs abourt 5-7 inches of presure, Ppropane runs about 12-15 inches of pressure, much more. The orifices, holes that the gas comes out, for natural gas, are larger to send more gas to burner. With propane, the orifices are WAY smaller, because the pressure is much higher.

Change from lp to propane on my whirlpool stove

Propane is LP...(i.e. Liquid Petroleum)

The burners are working only as a fluke. It is extremely dangerous to operate a natural gas stove on propane. STOP USING IT IMMEDIATELY. Call your local propane supplier and ask them about converting it to LP/Propane.
