Seized screws in Stoves 'Range 1000G Gas Range Cooker (LPG)

Hi. I have Natural gas/LPG qualifications. I want to replace the two oven thermostats in my Stoves Range 1000G LPG gas cooker (all gas only). I cannot get the hob tops off as the screws holding the hob burner mixing tube flanges to the hob top have all 'welded' themselves into the aluminium mixing tubes through (presumably), galvanic corrosion. I have already snapped off about six screw heads despite copious use of release oil. I assume that I will have to drill out the old screw heads to free up the hob tops and then drill and tap new holes for fresh screws, using copper grease to prevent problems in future?
The Cooker model no. is 059044018 and is about 10 years old.

I let the screws soak for a few days in release oil but with no success. I decided the only way to get the seized screws out was to drill and tap new holes through the hob and into the hob burner mixing tube support flanges. This allowed new screws (stainless as opposed to the standard, chrome plated steel screws) to be screwed into place. Once this was done I then drilled out the heads of the remaining seized screws. This allowed the hob tops to be removed so that the oven thermostats could be changed. The hob screws were then screwed back into place and lubricated with loads of high temp. copper grease to prevent corrosion. I will also remove and re-grease these screws every six months or so to prevent any chance of seizure in future!

A few points to remember: (a) make sure that any holes in the hob top are sealed with something such as a screw coated with high temp fire cement etc. to prevent any possibility of unburnt LPG getting into the space below the hob top. (b) make SURE that you do not drill or tap into anything that could damage the cooker and cause a gas leak or damage any of the gas ignition leads etc. (c) Make sure that the appliance is totally 'gas tight' after doing any work which will disturb the gas connections, and (d) If you don't have gas qualifications and are not sure of what you are doing then get an expert, registered gas engineer to do the work for you. Don't take a chance with gas!!

Problem with Kenmore 970-334780 Gas Kitchen Range / propane gas /to natural gas


hello Lorraine,

Most gascookers heve the possibility to change from LPG to natural gas.
You need to change the injectors. The holes in the injectors for LPG are smaller that the ones for natural gas.
I send you a link of Ebay where you can see what you need to look for.
Sometimes the oven can give a problem when it is gas too.

Kind regards, Dik

Stoves 1000DF Richmond - LPG Conversion


the back decal will be the original manufacturer and the person doing the conversion would have fitted the LPG decal on the front as a warning to gas fitters carrying ot repairs
The only difference is jet sizes and air shroud positions
I would suggest that you have it inspected by a gas fitter to ensure that the flame is the correct color indicated by the correct jet and shroud position
it should be a royal blue
if a yellow it is wrong jets for the gas
