Question about Microwave Ovens

1 Answer

I have a Maytag range and I need to convert it from LP to natural gas. I already changed the nut on top of the regulator. I need to know how to change the orifice on the top burners. I looked inside the range and saw a nut on the bottom of the orifice. It is tightened and all the way down. Do I need to adjust the nut or what do I actually do to convert it?

Propane operates with a higher system pressure than NG, and you will need to replace the orifice's to allow proper flow. Check out this site for more detailed explainations and support.

Need to convert nat gas to lp gas have a in the counter cook top


Most manufacturers of gas appliances offer conversion kits to make switching between LP and NG fuels for ranges, dryers, etc. relatively painless.

First, you'll need to collect the manufacturer's name, appliance model and serial numbers. Then, contact your choice of either the place of purchase, or shop the part to authorized parts resellers in your locality or internet for the correct kit and best price. Use only parts designed for use in your particular appliance.

I hope this helps & good luck! Please rate my reply - thanks.

Hi! I am converting my Maytag oven to propane from natural gas. I've flipped the cap at the main (n to lp) and snugged down all the orifices at the four burners, so far so good. But I am not sure if the...


Hi Kim,
First of all, read and follow all the safety instructions in your installation and operations booklets.
If Maytag recommend that only a certified gas fitter should do this conversion, then follow the advice.
If you are a certified gas fitter you would know the answer.
There are too many variables to take into account for this type of conversion like altitude, propane pressure regulation, age and wear of the stove, state of repair of all supply pipework, proximity to open flames in the area like water heater pilot lights. Leaking propane is heavier than air and will collect at the lowest part of the home like the basement where the open flames might be.
So my best advice is to ask a certified/ticketted gas fitter to do the job or check what you have done and ensure that everything complies with all local codes.
"If in doubt don't" is great kindergarten advice for everything which is potentially risky.
I hope this helps,
jenni.

What do I change when I go from propane gas to natural gas on my Maytag mgr5870bdw Do I change something or do I adjust something? HELP ! Chuck


You will need to change the gas orifice for the type of gas you'll be using. You also may have to change the gas regulator, but you should check the installation manual for details.

You can also contact Maytag by calling 1-800-688-9900 to get the exact part numbers you'll need to make the conversion correctly.

Hope you found this helpful and best regards!
