Simple answer NO.

Unless Jenn-air has a conversion kit. (highly doubt this)
It would be a serious undertaking to switch out 2 burners for LP use.
Gas tubes, igniters, electronics, regulator, gas jets.
Not to mention the modifications changes needed to the stove top to make all this work. That gas regulator has to go somewhere and piping from tank/regulator/burners.

Not saying it can't be done mind you.
But think about it long and hard before committing to this job.
Small gas leak can become a huge headache later.

I am trying to convert a Jenn-air model # PRD3630NP from LP to NG I assume this model is convertable becouse it has a convertable reg on it. Do thay make a kit to do this or is it just a matter of ins


Jenn Air use to make a kit that had the proper orifices for the burners and the valves. The regulator is adjustable for the conversion by simply reversing the main screw. It was intended to be convertible. However, since the model is discontinued, you can no longer purchase the kit (or the backsplash). Apparently Jenn Air believe that when they stop making a product, no one will ever need a part for it again (cough, cough).
Good luck trying to track down a kit. I've tried everywhere in the country and a few shops in Canada. I have a gas appliance expert who thinks he can accomplish the conversion by getting a few of the parts from the LP model and then modifying the rest. The orifices are basically the same, only the LP diameters are different. Theoretically, the ports could be filled and redrilled, but the hardware store was fresh out of 1.07mm bits, so I'll pass on trying this on my own.
If anyone has a LP model they want to convert to natural gas, I'll gladly swap parts.

Is this on LP or Natural gas? If LP was it converted to LP? In any event,The air shutter must be adjusted on the gas burner tube. You need more air. The valve orifice may also need adjusting.

Jenn Air 740-0141 LP to NG Conversion


If the grill can be converted, it's usually a matter of providing a source for the natural gas and then changing the gas jets for the burner(s) and possibly a regulator, depending on your model. Some grills may require changing the gas burner valves themselves. Kits are usually available from a dealer unless the unit is old.

The natural gas jet will be slightly larger than the propane jet because natural gas doesn't have as high a heating value as propane.

If you do this, check your new conversion for any leaks using a soap solution in a spray bottle.

Just be aware that the grill may not get as hot with natural gas and cooking could take a little longer, but should still work just fine.

Your natural gas line should typically be about 1/2" unless it's huge or is over 50-60 feet away from the grill location. If so, use a 3/4" line. Piping material and methods are usually governed by your local building codes.

This is the solution to convert from LP back to natural gas that I posted as a comment on this thread:
After much work and little help from Jenn-Air or Whirlpool, I found a satisfactory solution. As many of you may have found out, Whirlpool does not sell the natural gas orifices to the JDR8895AAS separately as they do the LP conversion orifices. Instead, they recommend that you buy all 5 orifice holders that include the individual orifices. This would run about $120-150 depending on where you shop. If you want to take this route, the Whirlpool parts you need are:
1x740079621x740078132x740079611x74007816
Fortunately, because natural gas is denser than LP, the LP orifices can be bored out for a conversion back to natural gas. After a lot of homework I was able to find someone with the natural gas orifices for this stove that let me take them out to measure them. For some crazy reason, Whirlpool does not have this information:
Find a machine shop or a good appliance repair shop that has a wire gauging bit set. The natural gas orifice hole sizes are as follows:
Left front burner (16K BTU): 48Left rear burner (9.2K BTU): 54Center burner (5K BTU): 58Right front burner (12.5K BTU): 52Right rear burnger (5K BTU): 58
It cost me $25 to have these resized after I found the correct hole size.
Finally, to complete the conversion back to natural gas, you must flip the plastic screw-shaped piece by unscrewing the hex nut on the regulator at the back of the stove.
Hope this helps, because it took me a while to figure it out.

Converting aan LP oven to gas


In most cases the pressure regulator has to be changed or adjusted. The orfices on each burner, oven, broiler and surface burner may need to be changed also. Sometimes they can be adjusted. Sometimes the threads on the pipe are different also. This is to prevent accidental connection to the wrong fuel. The big difference is the gas pressure. LP is usually around 10 - 12 lbs and natural gas is usually around 3 lbs. Properly adjusted you will like natural gas much better than LP as it is slightly hotter. The information will be in the instruction book and also on the Jenn air web site. Whirlpool owns both Maytag and Jenn aire so check all sites. The conversion kit is usually less than $50.
