I have the same problem since last year. We purchased the range over the phone from Puerto Rican branch of Sears. They REFUSED to give us the conversion kit. In New York, they told us that they do not have it...I do not know from where to get those orifices...any advice?

No,you have to convert it to propane.The regulator,orfices need to be changed.Call sears or where you purchased the oven and ask them for a conversion kit.Its also not difficult to do.

Can a DCS 60-10-2 be converted to L.P.?


Hello. Yes it can be converted to LP, the kit part however, not sure. I would suggest contacting the manufacture to see if one is available, and who/where to get it. Here is some info:http://www.dcsappliances.com/customercare/contact-us.cfm
or you could contact a local servicer by checking your phone book, under "restaurant equipment repair".

Hope that helps, and thank you.

DCS 4 burner plus griddle Range..oven doesn't heat


This happened to my DCS when the Hot Wire Relay went out. It isn't an expensive part, but finding someone that knows what needs to be replaced, and then can replace it is hard. My oven also did the opposite and continued to heat without shutting off, and it was once again the hot wire relay.

Igniter will not shut off on my DCS RGS-366 gas range


Replace the multipoint gas re-igniter, it is a blue unit behind the knobs. This unit detects the flame and stops the clicking. Call Fisher and Paykel (owners of DCS) at 1 888 936-7872, they sell parts for DCS. The old inferior unit is blue and has a whte label. The newer unit has a yellow label.

DCS FREE STANDING RANGE


This should be fairly easy to do. You will have to get new jets that are sized for propane. These should be readily available. The jets on the stove top are located under each burner in the top of the pipe that delivers the gas. Remove the burner and you should be looking at a small hole in the center of a brass fitting, that's the jet. It unscrews and the new jet screws in. You may also have to adjust the simmer. This adjustment is located on each burner valve. When you pull of the knob, the adjustment will most likely be in a hole on the shaft where the knob came out or as was the case with my stove, it was behind and beside the shaft, just visible with a flashlight. This adjustment is done with the flame on in low medium. You may need to hold the shaft with pliers to keep the valve from opening. Turn the screw a half turn or so until the flame simmers to your liking and is not so thready tat it wants to go out.
For the oven, this will either be an adjustable jet, or you will need to replace it with one set up for propane. Either way its a doable project.

Propane conversion kit


2 possibilities, Shannon:

1. Contact a local dealer and give them the headache...LOL

2. Contact the manufacturer and have them source the kit for you.

Both solutions start out the same:

1-888-281 5698

Good Luck.

Frigidaire convection free standing range


new ranges come set for natural gas. in the installation instuctions there should be instruction for converting the range to lp. some models require that the orafice for the burners be replaced as part of the coversion, if so the there should be a pack of them with the new range. others you just have to tighten the orafices that are all ready in the range. you installation guide will tell you which one you have to do

Oven in DCS gas range doew not turn on


Well some of the older ones have a unit that is sorta like a pilot light which keeps you safe by not letting out gas before it ignites so as to not blow up. This macanism is probably bad. I use to replace them on Tappan ovens. They would last a couple of years and then would go out and to replace them then was about $80.00. Easy to do. They are usualy located inside the oven somewhere and look like a glass eye on one end with a small 1/4 inch gas line connecting to the other end.
