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.

Where do all orifices go on anything gas? Right there where the burner meets gas valve. The air shutter sits right in front of the orifice for proper air to gas ratio right.Go out and look at yer gas grill. Where the burners meet the gas valve ye shall find the orifice.

Unfortunaletly, due to the delicate nature of vent-free appliances, you'll find that most are not field convertable. If the vent free appliance were to lose its efficiency, you would be subjected to high levels of CO, carbon monoxide, and could likely die. Therefore, field conversion is not recommended and in this case, not possible. Vermont Castings does not provide parts to convert and if they did you would be essentially replacing the entire unit short of the outer cast shell. I wish you luck.

How to change from natural gas to propane


Hi Rodney.

the main change from natural gas to propane is that propane has a bit higher energy content than natural gas, so you may heat things a bit faster. The particulars will depend on your specific make and model of range, but, for instance, with my KitchenAid gas range, the primary difference was getting a slightly different connection orifice made to give proper propane flow and pressure. The install kit may also have listings for necessary delivery pressure ranges from you propane source. If the range is built in, it might be a bit of a pain to get at the gas connections, and it's best done by a professional who will know the proper fittings, seals, and pressure tests to do to make sure you aren't leaking gas all over your kitchen.

That said, it's likely not a particularly big deal.

Good Luck!

Can I convert a 450rb from propane to natural gas


The simple answer is yes. However you will need to convert it. Simple process for a gas fitter, they will put a natural gas regulator on and possibly change the jets. Natural gas runs at a higher pressure than Propane. What ever you do, do not run without conversion, it will fail with possible fire or explosion.

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.

How do I know if my Caloric Heritage gas range is propane or natural gas? It is a used stove that was given to us


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.

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.

Yes you can convert the range

2. Provide an adequate gas supply.
This unit is pre-set to operate on 4" natural gas manifold
pressure. Aconvertible pressure regulator is connected to the
manifold and MUST be connected inseries with the gas supply
line. If the LP/Propane conversion kit has been used, follow
instructions provided with the kit for converting the pressure
regulator to LP/Propane use. The LP kit can be found on the
back side of the range (some models).

I yours does not have the kit on back go to sears to get one.

Good Luck
