SOURCE: cast iron pans

Cast iron cookware is NOT recommended due to the weight and the potential damage it can cause to the glass top surface. There's nothing better than a good old-fashioned cast iron skillet that's been broken in over a number of years of use, but they are better suited for gas ranges rather than electric. I hate it. I have several cast iron skillets that I only use on the outdoor grill, because I currently own a glass top electric range.

Aluminum bottom pans and copper bottom pans heat well, but can leave metal transfer marks on the cook top surface. If the marks are cleaned after use with an approved stove top cleaner, you shouldn't have any problem retaining the condition of the glass surface, however. Stainless Steel seems to offer good resistance to metal transfer, but takes a little longer to heat than aluminum or copper. So...you have somewhat of a trade off. Baked enamel cookware seems to be the best recommendation because it heats wells and causes the least amount of damage to your glass top surface.

IMPORTANT: Make sure the bottom of your cookware is FLAT. If your pans are warped or bowed, this can cause uneven heat transfer on the heating elements and potentially cause the cook top to crack. Most manufacturers will not replace the top if it still under warranty if it is determined that your cookware caused the problem.

A little over kill, but I hope this helps you.

SOURCE: I just converted a Tappan stove to lp and cant get to light

HI, Things to check. Did you reverse the cap on the regulator? Adjust the oven orfice by turning it clockwise until it reached the bottom of the threads? Some mofels have a small shut off on the gas valve as well.
Change the burner orfices?
Make sure the gas shut off valve is turned on all the way?
Just a check list. I hope this helps you.

Rheem 300170 HWS service manual


1) Rheem does not post service manuals.
Call Rheem and ask why, since the other big manufacturers, AO Smith and Bradford White do post service manuals.

2) You need new propane gas control valve, and matching combustion parts to fit existing tank.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Rheem-Water-Heater-parts-catalog.pdf
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/IMG_1826-LP-burner-450.jpg

3) Rheem does not recommend changing gas type, especially from natural gas to LPG.
LPG is higher pressure, and burns much hotter and requires cast iron burner, unlike the lighter-weight metal used for Natural gas burner.
The manifold tube and thermocouple must match the gas control valve, and gas-type and have correct thread for propane.
The combustion chamber and heat transfer surface can also be heavier metal for propane heaters.

How do you convert a coleman 425e into a propane stove


Is there a reason or a need? I cannot imagine why you would want to, except as a point of interest for your camp kitchen. A new propane stove would work better and not cost all that much, relative to the work and cost of putting fittings, pipes and burners into the old stove box.

The electronic ignition (piezo lighter) on my Coleman 2-burner propane camp stove just quit sparking to 1 burner. It still lights the 2nd burner. A fix?


I've had this issue a few times. Complete cleaning of the under side of the burner and all components of the ignition system fixes it every time.
The slightest bit of carbon build up is the probable cause. I would suggest cleaning the contact with 400 grit or higher emory cloth. This will remove any contamination from the ignitor,

Black is on the burners


the fuel to air mixture is set incorrectlty or your pressure at the ouitlet for the gas valve is too low.
you culd play around adjusting the first part of this but for the gas valve part you have to have a manaometer to check it out correctly. then it should be set at 10"wc. Good Luck
