It sounds like during the conversion process a step or two may have been missed.

The gas orifice for the main oven burner is most likely to large (was not converted to LP), or the air shutter on the burner was not adjusted. I would not use the oven with the flames that way.

There should be instructions with the installation instructions on how to convert the oven, basically on most oven burners the orifice is screwed down (tightened) until the flame is the right size, then the air shutter on the burner is adjusted for a blue flame.

Let me know if you have questions

How to change from natural gas to propane


Hi Rodney.

the main change from natural gas to propane is that propane has a bit higher energy content than natural gas, so you may heat things a bit faster. The particulars will depend on your specific make and model of range, but, for instance, with my KitchenAid gas range, the primary difference was getting a slightly different connection orifice made to give proper propane flow and pressure. The install kit may also have listings for necessary delivery pressure ranges from you propane source. If the range is built in, it might be a bit of a pain to get at the gas connections, and it's best done by a professional who will know the proper fittings, seals, and pressure tests to do to make sure you aren't leaking gas all over your kitchen.

That said, it's likely not a particularly big deal.

Good Luck!

Open up the range top and check the piping connections right up to each burner. Use soapy water and a small brush to do this safely. Chances are you have a leak. J.

Top burners are propane. we are used to propane heating really fast. this stove seems really slow. 5minutes to boil litre of water. burners are having hard time lighting.


If it is new fromt the factory, you many have the natural gas (methane) jets in the burners. You will need to check your bag of parts to find the propane parts (LP parts). LP jets allow a different fuel/air mixture to burn at the right heat. Check the owner's manual for details how to make the change.

Please rate me - Good luck.
