    I am trying to convert a Dacor range as well - can you tell me where you got the conversion kit> I am having trouble locating one.

  • vintagemarks Jan 19, 2008

    I found mine at local appliance parts store. Try web site www.APDepot.com and enter Dacor and cooktop model. The cat. number for natural gas kit is 86666 for the SGM365 model. Came with no imstructions, cost range-$62 It includes a needle valve and orfice plug for each burner (5 of each) There are also parts diagrams on this web site. You can see the needle valve and orfice at the valve after removing the knob and looking through the opening. Note--- they are not all made alike. It appears the stove has to come apart from the top. Check the diagrams, The regulator valve spring also has to be turned around. I'm still looking at mine. GOOD LUCK.

    I'm also having the same issue, but with a 36" epicure dual fuel. range was converted from the original ng to lp status by an authorized service dealer which he then bartered out for payment of services. when we tracked back to him for help, he completely disowned any responsibility for helping us out - presumably since he'd get in a s**tload of trouble from corp dacor.

    dacor won't sell us the part either since it's an older range, even though we will have an auth dealer work on it....?? whtf??

    anyway, i need to know where we can get the conversion kit and any help is GREATLY appreciated! thanks!

    on the regulator there is a 1/2" nut, made of aluminum. loosen the nut, thur it around and screw it back in, there is a "NAT" on one side, and a "LP" on the other side, make sure the "LP" is facing out if you are using propane, and "NAT", if you are using Natural Gas. Very simple, all you need is a 1/2" wrench, or a small adjustable wrench,

    make sure you turn off the gas supply before doing ANY work!

    wow, this is an old post, I hope you have figured it out by now, the people at Dacor won't tell you.

    My stove is a 1996 stove that I am trying to convert to propane. Would I use this same technique. When you talk about the regulator do you mean the knob that you turn to adjust the flame? Or do you mean something that is under the burner?

    After reading WMSweeney posting I went to my stove and took off the front panel where the knobs are. Sure eough there was a box in the middle with a nut, I unscrewed the nut an one end said "Nat" and the other end said "LP". Since I wanted my stove hooked up for Liquid Propane (LP) I screwed the nut back in with LP facing out toward me. It worked! Big Big Big thank you to WMSweeney for this great tip. I almost gave up on the stove because I wasn't able to find any replacement parts to perform this switch over. Dacor was no help at all. I do not understand why they wouldn't share this simple procedure. I am just so fortunate that I didn't give up and kept searching on the internet to try an find some answers. Luckly I ran into this site and found the posting from WMSweeney, Big, Big, Big thank You!!!!!

Hi I am trying to convert my Dacor stove/oven from NG to Propane. We can't find the conversion kit anywhere. Any ideas?


Hi, to convert from NG to LP is easier in some ways but harder in others. The pressure part is easy because LP runs at the same pressure that comes into the house so the regulator is normally locked wide open to allow a direct by-pass. You could just as easily remove the regulator and plumb straight in from the houseline. You don't say what model but usually the sealed cooktop burners will need smaller orifices and the oven and broiler orifices are adjustable. If that is the case, the oven and broiler orifices can be tightened until they bottom out which be the correct output for LP. You would need to remove the cooktop orifices and find replacements which are correct for LP, these are non-brand specific. Honestly, if you go to repairclinic.com and enter the brand and model number, I'd be surprised if you couldn't find the conversion kit. Even the Dacor site should be helpful. I found many different kits available at the repairclinic.com site even without a model number. Best of luck.

Converting Dacor ERD30S06CH/LP/H to Natural Gas


I know they won't convert gas water heaters but I didn't know they were afraid of stoves. See if your gas company will help. Sometimes they can drill out the orfices. Some of the older repair people still remember how to do this. The orfice for natural gas is larger as the pressure is a lot less. The gas pressure regulator will also need to be replaced. This can be done with a generic part.

Dacor pgm 365 lp to naural gas


Yes by a licensed person so as not to break any local laws or Kill You,
LPg typically delivers at a higher psi than natural gas, and the propane content requires more combustion air than the methane butane mix of natural gas,
methane CH4 needs 2 oxygen (O2) to make CO2 +2 H20
Propane C4H10 needs 7.5 (02) 4 CO2 5 H2O
the nozzle injecting the LPg has small diameter, The Gas certified plumber can remove the nozzle(s) and replace them with larger diameter Natural gas ones for a small price, most manufacturers make both, its a simple job
Cant stress - Gas Certified plumber/tradesman - strongly enough, one explosion will ruin your whole day

Convert to LP?


If it is possible, then the orifice has to be changed. The regulator may need to be changed as well. I am a certified LP technician for recreational vehicles, but I don't know enough about this particular appliance to say for sure if it can be converted. The best thing is to contact Miele directly, but this sort of conversion always requires a different orifice. Note that propane, butane, and natural gas are all forms of LP (Liquified petroleum), so conversion between the 3 is usually possible

Convert to LP (propane)


Contact Miele directly via their website. This would require an orifice change if it is possible for this appliance. Since natural gas, butane, and propane are all forms of LP (Liquified Petroleum), it is usually, but not always, possible.
