JGBP89SEMSS BURNER HEIGHT

This stove was just delivered on 3-4. I converted it to LP myself. I am a diesel mechanic w/ 20 years on various fuels including LP. I feel the burner flame heights are way too low. All are at least 1" below the grates, except the super boil burner which touches the grates. Burner flames are perfect blue color and the exact same height whether I have 1 or all burners on. The gas company doesnt feel it is a supply issue since the old stove worked fine and they believe my conversion was done correctly, they said if I screwed it up the flames would be too high/yellow. One of their techs said some of the new stoves he has worked on do have flames well below the grates. It seems to take way too long to boil water. Does this sound like it is correct operation or not? GE hasnt been much help so far

Sounds right long as you did the conversion okay did you change the spring in the reg ? lp gas does burn lower than nat gas smaller blue flame . you could see if the aeration can be adjusted to the burners You could also check the pressure at the burners lp working pressure is 14in wg .
You could check the reg outside . That's all I got .

SOURCE: burner flame adjustment

there are two considerations for burner height. 1) the gas adjustment screw on the knob and 2) the gas-air mixture to the burner. establish a flame and adjust the screw for a standing flame at the burner. adjust the gas-air ratio orifice so that the flame has no yellow tips.

SOURCE: The oval burner has only very low flame, even when set on high

Every one of these ranges that I have seen with the oval style burner on them have a smaller flame then the normal round burners. And there is very little difference between the low and high settings. It sounds like what you are experiencing is normal. What the GE repairman was adjusting is called the "simmer stop". There is a small flat head screw inside the burner stem. By turning this screw you can adjust the size of the burner on the low position of the burner knob. This should be adjusted to where the burner still stays on when the knob is at the lowest setting. I do not think that you need the burner repaired. From my experience they are all like that.

Control knob doesnt adjust flame height?


Use a manometer to insure lp gas pressure is correct. The regulator for the stove may need adjusting. The air mixture adjustment may not be correct for PL as well.

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!

Want to convert from natural gas to lp propane


A conversion usually consist of new burner(s)/nozzle(s)/orrifice(s) and either a new regulator/gas valve..

Some gas cook stoves or ranges come with the ability to run on either fuel and the spare nozzle or orrifice will be attached somewhere on the stove.. usually under the range top.. the gas valve may have a small lever that you simply move to the preferred fuel setting.. NAT or LP.

The appliance must have a rating plate that states it can be converted.. and if so..typically a conversion kit will be available or may have been included in the appliance package.

LP Gas runs at a higher pressure.. making a broad statement here.. converting from Natural to LP is more dangerous if the proper steps are not followed then converting from LP to Natural.. which typically just results in a weak flame.. regardless. it's still dangerous.

Many modern appliances will have a warning label stating it can only be used with a certain type of fuel. Heed the warning.

If your appliance did not ship with the alternate fuel kit or has a warning label.. do not attempt to convert it.. it will be much safer and cheaper to buy the proper appliance.

Best of luck.. and be careful

I have a K/A kgst307 gas stove that was bought new as a natural gas unit. After 3 years, I moved to a house that had propane. NO PROBLEM because an LP conversions kit came with the stove. Used the stove on...


Although the natural gas orifices for the stove top burners were replaceable with propane orifices, many ovens/broilers orifices are simply adjustable using a 1/2" open end wrench to convert from one gas to another. Some brands are adjustable and some have to be changed out. It depends on the make and model. Do you have your owner's manual? It contains detailed info on converting your unit. I included a link below to choose from the list to download your manual. You'll need your exact model # listed on your stove. Pull out the bottom drawer and look at the data plate for the model # and then find it on the list for the correct manual. Douglas

Changing stove from gas to lp do we need to open top of stove to do this?


Only if it is an open burner stove. Sealed burner stoves are converted without removing the top. Which do you have? Your owner's manual shows how to convert it. If you're missing the manual, tell us your stove make & exact model # and we'll see if it's available online to download. Douglas

I dunno, I have not done the conversion for this particular barbecue, but the kit is listed in the parts list for that barbecue,

It would be appropriate at this time to print the conversion instruction manual and take it to a local 'guy' a gas fitter.
The instruction .pdf shows them converting 3, 5, 7 burner units with the same kit, and states
  • Insert orifice removal tool provided with kit onto firebox burner openings and unscrew orifices from valves.
    Save removed orifices for later if converting back to LP Tank Gas.
    The valves are designed to work with natural gas once orifices are removed.
    Do not replace any Orifices when using natural gas.
    NOTE: your gas conversion kit comes with replacement orifices for the Rotisserie Burner ONLY, do not use on Tube burner valves.

seems the same 2-burner kit is for all barbecues
I think the person on the phone messed up, but a gas-guy would know for sure

Gas convertion


stoves have a pressure regulator as the flex line from the house connects to the stove, it's about 2 inches by 3 inches in dimension and it has a knot in the middle and one to the side of it that is to the front of it that second one you can unscrew and put that knot the other way or upside down, that's the position for natural gas, now some regulators do not have it, in that case get one that can do that,or that is for lp and natural gas. then you must close the air a little bit on all the burners the vent is located as the burner meets the valve that supplies gas to the burners. and that vent is part of the burner.

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.
