Converting stovetop from natural gas to lp

I've changed out the orifices and purchased a Maxitrol regulator from Maytag ..rv47cl 1/2psig nat 5.0"LP 10.0" : Y704545. My question is, do I need another regulator besides this one? as there seems to be too much pressure on the regulator. Because with just this one regulator there is still too much pressure.
I have a 30 lb bottle attached to the stovetop with a 3/8" to 1/2" line.
Thanks,
Phil Sorrell

    I have a Creda 4 burner gas. Converted to LG, and installed a maxitrol regulator RV47 CL, I have already changed the inside plunger to LP and re-attached the spring...However, I have readjusted the internal setting of the regulator, and have forgot what the original setting was.

    My flame is blue, with little yellow tips showing at times...Only on the large burners...

    What is the proper flame setting ???

    Thanks

How do u change a gas stove from natural to lp?


Nearly every natural gas / LP operated appliance can be converted to work with the other fuel pretty easily. You will need to change the orifice in the burner & pilot. Contact your LP provider and they should be able to supply the correct parts / perform the labor for this job for you.

Good luck!

GE Range - oven flames too high after regulator replacement and self clean


You need a Gas tech/plumber there urgently!!!!
If the gas jets in your oven had not been changed to accomodate LP gas then the orifice on your existing jets are still to large in diameter. In other words your using Natural Gas jets ( lower pressure jets) for Lp which has a much higher pressure than Nat. gas, this can be extremely dangerous, & could cause major problems.
Again I strongly suggest you contact a Gas tech/Plumber & do not use your oven until it has beeen checked by a professional.Good luck

Mod jgp328wec2ww changed orifices from nat to lp. Burners not getting hot enough. It took 12 min to bring 1 qt to boiling and not rooling. how is this adjusted?


Please tell us everything you did to convert your stovetop/oven to LP? Beside swapping the natural gas orifices for LP orifices, did you also switch the appliance regulator over to LP? When you put in the orifices did you match up the proper size ones to each different size burner according to your owner's manual? They have #'s stamped on them to identify them and some are even color coded. Were you having any similar issues with your previous stove? If so, it may be a pressure problem. I can help you solve this problem with a little more information. Douglas

Converting cooktop regulator from NG to LP


LP is higher in pressure than NG, so regulator spring pressure has to be greater.

Propane to Natural Gas Conversion


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,

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.
