Stoves are usually sent from the factory set for natural gas. they have to be converted to Propane. If it is set for propane the flame will be very low on natural gas. If set for natural gas on propane the flame will be very large. The orifices for natural gas are much larger than propane orifices. and the regulator is converted acordingly.

SOURCE: Whirlpool 465 Gas Stove conversion from propane to gas?

In most cases the orifices can be removed and reversed to convert from lp to natural gas. Sometimes you will need a conversion kit and you will need to look this up by model number. 465 is the oven capacity not the model number. You can locate the model number by pulling the drawer out and looking behind it. Please let me know the model and I can let you know what kit you need. Also I should let you know that your gas company is the most qualified to convert your range, and this conversion should not be attempted by anyone who is not qualified. If this conversion is not completed properly you could be risking your life and the lives of everyone in your home, so make sure you know what you are doing!! Or get a qualified person. Good luck and please be careful making any changes to your gas appliances. Please dont forget to rate me also.

SOURCE: Natural Gas to Propane for Ge xl44 Gas range

The kit is located at the rear of the range right near the gas valve, there are probably 5 spuds and an extender for the large burner, directions are with the range. For the bake and broil you will need to tighten the brass orifice nuts down as tight as possible, also the brass nut on the gas valve needs to be reversed
your local LP dealer should be able to do this for you if you are uncomfortable doing it yourself.

Should only be a matter of changing the jets, see a gas fitter if they can be changed.

How can you tell if a 1985 wolf range burnes gas or propane? it says propane, but we bought it saying it was for gas? And how much would it cost to change out? Thanks, Mary Kaye


Most ranges are easy to convert from propane to gas or vice versa. If there is a gas regulator installed on the back gas inlet, you could see if it is running 3-6" WC or 10-12" WC, The latter is for propane. If no regulator is present the orifice sizes will need to be checked. Propane has a higher caloric value than natural gas so the orifices are smaller. One way to see would be to install the oven. If the orifices are for propane and you are using natural gas there will be too little flame. I would estimate a conversion would cost no more than $250.00 to $300.00 depending on where you are. I would hire a professional to verify. I know it is expensive but the technician will be able to check your older oven (1985) for potentially dangerous gas leaks etc while he is there.

I will soon need to convert a 1993(?) CALORIC Kitchen Range back to Natural Gas from LP. When I installed it, NG was not available, so the propane company guys converted it to LP. I was not here to learn...


First check the regulator valve on the back of the stove. Chances are it is a dual purpose valve and once you are ready to do the converstion.. you simply will move the lever or change the setting from LP to NAT.(obvisouly before proceeding you need to have the fuel supply turned off to the appliance)

Next check under the range lid or on the back of the stove for the spare NATural gas orifices.. when they changed it out for you there were two scenarios.. the range (most do) came with a set of LP orifices..and they simply changed these out on each burner supply including brolier/oven. (orifices are interchangeable nozzles that are threaded into the supply gas burner)

If they had to swap out the regulator chances are they would have given you the one that came with your stove.. However I am fairly sure the regulator is a dual purpose and you simply need to change the setting from LP to NAT.

DO NOT DO THIS WITHOUT CHANGING OUT THE ORIFICES FIRST.

If you cannot locate the spare orifices/spud/nozzles (they are called all of these) on the stove itself you will need to buy a set. A good appliance parts store will be able to help you with these.. again.. you will need one for each burner/burner supply.

If you can locate the range manual it will have instructions on how to do this.

Chances are your Natural Gas company will be able to help you with this.. especially if the regulator is dual purpose.. even if you can't find the orifices they are inexpensive.. fairly standard and easy to acquire. Usually just called a "conversion kit".. it will just consist of four or five small threaded 5/16 brass nozzles/orifices.
The installation is pretty straightforward. Again..a good appliance parts store may recommend a service company...and if your not familiar with diy repairs on a gas appliance.. a 50 to 100 dollar service call is well worth the money.

Best of luck to you!

Whirlpool model SF385PEEQ0 Gas stove was on Natural gas we have propane is there an adj or part needed as burns yellow flame!


You need to adapt your range for the propane gas. You need to change the orifices, propane needs a larger opening than natural gas. If you contact your propane company they can help you and some will even do it as a free service (or used to).

How to convert from natural gas to propane


All stoves in this country come from the factory with orifices designed to use natural gas. To switch over to propane, the orifices have to be changed over. Contact your propane provider and they will obtain the proper orifices for your range. They may even install them for free. good luck.

Propane coversion of kenmore 790 gas range


Most gas stoves are shipped for natural gas .You need to check the orifice on each burner to see if they are for natural gas or propane.If you ordered propane the stove should have been shipped with the orifices.They may be in a bag with your stove documents.

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.
