Question about Sears 61301 Gas Kitchen Range
The cost of the parts is low. Many ranges have the conversion kit attached to the back of the unit. (If installed, pull the range away from the wall and then check the back. Another likely spot is behind the storage drawer.) If the parts aren't provided, then check your manual for information on ordering the conversion kit. (At least one range I've researched had a price under $20 for the conversion kit.)
The biggest cost is to get a licensed installer to do the conversion. This is required to maintain the warranty. It is also required by law in some states. Talk to your gas company (most appliance shops do not have staff that handle propane conversions).
The instructions are included with the conversion kit. It's fairly simple and takes a screwdriver, wrench and ratchet with correct sized socket (mine took a 10mm). A nutdriver can be helpful. Check your instructions for any other tools you need. With the stove unplugged and disconnected from the gas supply, turn over the LP/NG part in the regulator (do not remove the entire regulator). Adjust the air flow damper. Remove the current orifices for both the range and the stovetop. For best results do these one at a time (the orifices are labeled and are for specific locations). In the oven, you need to remove a few covers to reach the various dampers and orifices.
Then connect the stove back to the incoming gas line and power supply (use a new flexible gas line for the connection to the regulator). Check for leaks. Then you may need to adjust the flame for each of the inlets. The stovetop burners usually have a set screw behind the knob so turn on the flame and then remove the knob. The set screw takes a very small screwdriver.
I hope this helps.
(please note I did this from memory after reading the directions on the new stove we had delivered about 2 months ago. That was an LG stove so some differences in the instructions are inevitable.)
