How to change from natural gas to propane
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.
