Swithed to LP

I converted my maytag gas range over to LP, the stove come with the five jets for the surface burners. The oven was never mentioned and so I teid to use it. The flames from the burner filled the oven. Is there an adjustment for the oven? What do I need to do?

    Have nearly the same problem with a new GE model JGBP85DEM1WW. The LP regulator went out a week after we got the range and fuel pressure was very low. When we replaced the regulator, the pressure went back up (too far?) and flames come out inside the oven bottom with heavy, rapid carbon build up. The top burners and top broiler seem OK. After adjusting the air port, we nearly eliminated the carbon build up in the oven but the flame is still way too high. There are no technicians in our little town. Any advice??

Whirlpool WFG510S0AS2 range - stove burners work just fine, but both the oven and broiler does not stay lit. NOTE - this unit has been converted from natural gas to LP

when the lp conversion is done , it is normally just a jet size change that is done
however the air shroud has to also be adjusted to get a clean blue burn of the flame
The just jet change results in a slightly yellow flame which is incomplete burn of the gas and that creates carbon build up at the jet and burners causing partial blockage
I would suggest that you call in an accredited gas fitter to check the problem and if necessary , clean the jets and adjust the air shroud

Is there something available to convert a hardwick propane stove / oven to run on Natural gas?

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

Need instructions and part # for lp conversion kit on MGR5765QDS

Your conversion jets are usually located beneath the hinge area or the back panel on that stove and are mounted on a plate which holds all of the LP jets in a row. there is no need to buy a conversion kit, since it is already supplied. The jets mount on the burner control itself as it enters the gas flow tube, and the oven jet mounts just before the large burner under the plate in your oven area. Just remove that large oven floor plate and you will see it.

Can this gas range be converted to lp gas maytag performa

moz-screenshot.pngmoz-screenshot-1.pngTurn off the gas supply.
Locate the gas valve regulator. Unscrew the top cap on the regulator,turn it over and re-install it.It should be marked NAT. LP.When correctly converted you will be able to read LP.
On the Performa all the conversion parts should just be adjustments. Remove the oven racks,remove the oven base pan,remove the oven flame spreader pan to access the safety valve. Take a 1/2 inch open end wrench and tighten the orifice on top of the gas safety valve. Tighten it until it is snug.Remove the top burners and raise the top to access the surface gas valves.Tighten the valve spuds until snug. Re-assemble all parts.Turn the gas back on and lite the burners. Turn them high and low to make sure they stay lit. If any burner is not right tighten or loosen the orifice spud for that burner only. All air shutter adjustments should be full open,

Conversion from electric to lp gas

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.

Burners ignite but wont light

Are you on Natural Gas or LP?

If on LP, you may need to change the jets on the burners on top. Most times, when oven and broiler work and top doesn't, and you have spark, your jets are wrong size. Look on back of unit for a cardboard attached to unit, should have jets stuck to cardboard, if notgo to store where you bought unit and buy jets.

Swithed to LP

Natural Gas has a pressure at about 1/4oz psi. Propane runs at a much higher pressure 8 psi to 15 psi. For your safety do not use the oven until it is garenteed that the oven is rated for LP Gas!
Hope, this helps, Sea Breeze

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.
