Convert kenmore gas range to propane

Sears sent me four bags, each with four orifices. They seem to indicate that they go on the top burners, and the card is specifically marked as to which burner they go to. At the bottom of the card it says to "convert bake and broil by turning down orifice hood".

I don't know what they are trying to tell me.

Can you shed some light on this?

You unscrew the orifices in the range and screw in the new ones.  In the oven you adjust the hood around the bake orafice by screwing it down.

Convert maxitrol regulator#rv47cl natural to propane gas


Some gas ranges cannot be converted. If your model can be converted it normally requires flipping over the regulator diaphragm and also changing orifices for all burners, surface and oven. Most modern new appliances come with the LP orifices located on a card attached to the regulator.

I have a Frigidaire Stove, Model # FGF316ASA. It was changed from propane to natural gas. The oven works well. The burners, however, will only burn a low flame. Is there a solution for this?


When converting an appliance from propane gas to natural sometimes a technician will drill the orifice to a larger size rather than replace the orifices. Either way is fine, but sometimes the orifices don't get drilled to the correct size. The regulator must be on the propane setting if it is a convertible regulator. If your oven is working fine.... the top burner orifices probably need to be checked that they are the correct size. A simple fix.

79012 / 79014 / 79019 Gas Kitchen Range: The propane converson seems to be done right, howe...


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

Kenmore gas stove can it be changed to work for propane


Yes, your gas range can be converted to propane. Your owners manual will give you step by step instructions. Since there are many different models, there are different procedures involved to convert to propane. On some models you must change the top burner orifices where other models have adjustable orifices. The oven burner has an adjustable orifice(same with broil burner if there is one). The range regulator must be adjusted to stay open all the time because your propane system has its own regulator.

Converting from natural gas to propane


Where do all orifices go on anything gas? Right there where the burner meets gas valve. The air shutter sits right in front of the orifice for proper air to gas ratio right.Go out and look at yer gas grill. Where the burners meet the gas valve ye shall find the orifice.

The southbend 436d range gives a yellow flame at the burners


Hello. Please advise if your unit is supposed to run on propane, at the bottom of the oven door is a smaller panel, depending on age, it either lifts slightly, and then folds down, or clearly has screws on the front. Your Model/rating plate is behind this, either on the back of the panel, a tag screwed to the frame, or on the bottom ledge of this area. It should state what gas the unit is meant for, propane or natural. If it was not converted to run on propane, or made to run on propane, this is your problem. If it was built/converted for propane I would suggest you contact your propane supplier, or a restaurant service company to look at it, it would require a few specialized tools, pressure testing, orifice size req., and burner BTU. to go much further than cleaning the dust out of the burner, and cleaning the orifice.

Hope that helps, and thank you.

Propane coversion of kenmore 790 gas range


Most gas stoves are shipped for natural gas .You need to check the orifice on each burner to see if they are for natural gas or propane.If you ordered propane the stove should have been shipped with the orifices.They may be in a bag with your stove documents.

Burner flame height adjustment


All ignitors will always arc whenever one of them does.

I haven't worked with propane systems much, but it seems you may need the propane pressure regulator adjusted.

If the problem is only with the power burner, I would ensure that particular orifice was actually changed. The hole in a propane orifice is smaller than for natural gas.

Yes, the orifice will is in the center of each burner and will unscrew.  Make sure new orifices get installed in the correct burner or it won't work properly.  I think you will use a 6mm nut driver to unscrew the orifices.  Can use a ratchet and socket also.

Nat gas to propane conversion


With the gas turned OFF, you will need to find the gas regulator on the range. It will located in the back of the oven along the bottom somewhere. It's usually a square shaped valve with a nut on top of it. The gas valve orifice is located under the nut. All you need to do is remove the nut, take the orifice out, flip the orifice over and re-install to convert from one type of gas to the other. It should be marked which side is LP (propane) and which side is for Natural Gas. LP will have a smaller orifice opening than Natural. You will want to make sure the orifice size you are using is facing UP, then screw the nut back on the regulator. You will also have to do this for all the surface burners (if you haven't done so already). You will know if you have the orifice turned the wrong way because the flames will be too high, the oven will get way too hot and there will be soot everywhere. Hope this helps you.
