You should have this done by a professional because if it's not done properly, leaks may develop or mixtures won't be right and you'll run the risk of excessive carbon monoxide being produced due to incomplete combustion.

Convert lp natural gas


To convert a lincoln LP gas oven to a natural gas, you actually first of all need to buy from the supplier an orifice ment for natural gas and change. The difference in the orifices could be in the size of orifice aperture.
The orifice i'm talking about is located in the burner assembly. you got to dis assemble the burner so as to get to it.
After that you need to adjust the main gas manifold when the oven is on. The adjustment must be done such that the pilot flame is not yellowish

Tip

Changing your gas appliance from natural gas to LP or vice versa.


You have an LP gas stove which you really like and would like to take to a new home but the new home has a natural gas hookup. Since natural gas is already available it would be convenient to be able to use it. Can you convert your unit over to work on natural gas?

Yes it is possible to convert any LP gas appliance to natural gas or from natural gas to LP. The only difference is the size of the orifice used in the burner.

LP gas is composed of a much larger molecule than natural gas and requires a larger orifice to output the same amount of gas as a natural gas unit at the same setting. Therefore if you used an LP stove on natural gas it would produce too much heat and burn rather intensely. If you used a natural gas stove on LP it would not have much flame at all. You can see the problem. The solution is also obvious. You need the correct orifice.

Changing the orifice is easy. It is located in the middle of the burner and unscrews out of the unit. Install the new one the opposite way. Do not overtighten it.Usually the burners are made of soft metal and can strip easily.

The parts you would need are available at most good appliance stores but I would recommend the following site http://www.repairclinic.com . The parts will be cheaper at repairclinic. They have parts for almost any brand and a great search engine. They also have excellent videos showing how to make the repair.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

Converting broiler in oven from natural gas to lp gas on hotpoint gas range


On the oven portion you will need to turn the oriface clockwise all the way till it bottoms out. This is the conversion from natural gas to lp gas on all gas ovens. Also make sure the valve down toward the back has been flipped off of nat. to lp. Good luck

Recently purchased Frig. gas stove.Want to convert from natural gas to Lp.Do you remove spud and insert Lp oriface in spud then screw spud back onto line?Lp oriface is a lot smaller than oriface for...


Not really sure which model you have but when converting the over, ether bake or broil burner you tighten down the orfice cap. If you remove the burner off the oven valve you will notice that you can put a wrench on the orfice cap. Just tighten snuggly. If you over tighten you will crush the orfice under the cap.

How do i change from lp gas to natural gas on wall oven


First thing you will need to do is find out from the manufacturer of the oven if there is a conversion kit available and if the appliance is convertable. If there is then you can order the kit and follow the installation instructions. Also check the back of the oven for an envelope that may contain the gas orfice replacement heads to convert the appliance to natural gas. If you find the replacement orfice then you will need to remove the lp orfice from the burner and install the natural one. Then the appliance gas regulator will need to have the pressure adjusted lower for natural gas. There is usually a removable cap on top of the regulator on the oven. When you remove this cap there is usually a small metal ring that you can remove and flip over. It will say "nat" on one side and "lp" on the other. You will need to turn this ring over and re-insert so it displays "nat". This will change the gas pressure from 13 inches W.C. to 4 inches W.C. Some appliances only require the orfice change and no regulator adjustment but make sure that is the case with your oven because if you feed 13 inches W.C. pressure to a burner with a natural gas orfice...YOU WILL GET A HUGE BURNER FLAME AND MAY BURN/FLASH YOURSELF...So use extreme caution when converting a gas appliance. And if the oven has a pilot you will need to adjust the pilot pressure or change it's orfice if it has one. If it is electronic ignition no adjustment to that will be needed. Also unplug the electrical power the the unit while working on it.

CONVERT FROM NATURAL GAS TO PROPANE GAS


Pat, it is very important that all appliances that used natural are guaranteed to be LP Gas approved. Fact is natural gas uses about 1/4 oz. psi where Lp Gas uses 8lbs. to 13psi
This is critical that the person doing the work has experience in converting the two types to prevent fire or property damage. I hope I helped answer your question, let me know if this works out for you. Thanks, Sea Breeze
