Question about Amana RanARG7302 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

I recently purchased a used ARG 7300 gas range in god condition and had it converted to LP gas by the gas company. I am concerned that the ignitors for the range top don't fire until the knob is turned all the way to the " high light" position. It is therefore possible to open the gas jet partially without the burner igniting. To me this is a very dangerous condition. Is this the design of this stove or did the service technician adjust something to create this condition?

You know I never thought about it but my stove you can do that with also. You can go right by the "lite" position and have gas coming with out it actually lighting and I have seen other stoves that are like you said. So I would say that the serviceman did everything correctly. It is up to the user to be responsible and make sure that the stove lights in a timely way when they are using it.

Bluestar rangetop clicks several times before igniting


Do other appliances in your home using LP gas work properly? If so, then this is probably an air/fuel mix problem on the burner(s). If this is a new rangetop there should be directions with the range and the LP conversion kit to instruct on proper adjustments. Be certain the correct LP orifice was installed for each burner (they likely have different BTU ratings for different sized burners) and the ignitor post is clean and spaced properly to burner. Then adjust the air mix to achieve a blue flame with just a tip of yellow. Delayed ignition usually results from the wrong air/gas mixture which doesn't ignite until too much fuel has accumulated. In many locations the company you purchase LP gas from will have someone who can check and adjust this. If the range was shipped from the factory as LP gas ready, then you can also contact your dealer and request assistance.

Gas stove need to switch to propane


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.

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

Flames are extremely uneven and high


okay, DO NOT USE THIS STOVE ON LP GAS.

It's not intended to be used with LP gas, because LP gas requires a smaller orifice than natural gas. Call your propane supplier IMMEDIATELY...DO NOT USE THIS STOVE UNTIL IT IS CONVERTED TO LP GAS (if it's even possible)...this is extremely dangerous and you could hurt yourself if you continue to use LP gas on a stove that was designed to run on natural gas.

Converting a range from LP to Natural gas


Yes, it is possible.

You have to get the right orifice's for Natural gas. LP gas orifice has twice the size hole as compared to Natural Gas. Using it without the right orifice will put out way too much gas, and you will burn everything, as well as it will be a fire hazard.

Your local gas company or propane company should be able to get you the right orifice
