Question about Kitchen Ranges
I HAVE A DCS FREE STANDING UNIT 36"WIDE, BUT THIS UNIT IS BEEN USED WITH A NATURAL GAS, I'M WONDERING IF I CAN USE THIS UNIT WITH PROPANE, AND WHAT I NEED JUST IN CASE .
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.
