Question about Frigidaire PLCF489AC Dual Fuel (Electric and Gas) Kitchen Range

1 Answer

I converted my 40'' Figidaire range to LP a few years back when I did not have access to natural gas. Now I need to convert it back. I do not still have the old parts and there seems to be no ''Natural gas conversion kit'' available. How do I get orifices for that? I didn't do the work on the original conversion but Frigidaire is telling me that I just need to remove the LP orifices, not replace them. Is it possible that it has a permanant gas orifice that isn't removed during lp conversion and that the lp orifice just addes onto it? Could the the original gas orifices will still be there under the lp orifice? Hard to belive, but why else wouldn't they sell the natural gas orifices? Parts places are telling me I need 5 new burner tubes, thats the only way to get back to the natural gas orrifices, which is hard to believe. Confused.

I am having almost the same problem. Frigidaire told me to replace all 5 mixing tubes, ~$385, yeah right. They don't have the orifices itemized as an individual part, so no-one carries them, just the LP conversion kit. Another repair/parts guy advised me to drill out the orifices. Some other threads/blogs give the diameter to drill. Basically, since natural gas is 0.5 psi, you need a larger hole than your current propane orifices provide. Please speak up if you find out anything, I will try to do the same. Good luck.

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.

Need to convert from natural gas to LP. How?


I converted a gas range several years ago, and all that was required was that I had to 'seat' all of the orfices - or tighten them down so that they are completely seated (do not overtighten!). It has been working great for years!

Converting a GE Profile Gas Range from LP to natural gas


GE ships gas ranges set for natural gas, with the LP orifices included, usually on a metal tab held with one screw right near the regulator (where the gas connects to the range). If the range was converted to LP, the person who did the conversion was suppose to put the natural gas orifices back in that holder. If they are missing, comment back on the exact model number and I can look up the part number(s) for you.
