Make sure the regulator is converted properly and the gas safety valve has a place where you can get a wrench on it where the orifice comes out the top of the valve (look where the burner sits on top of the valve) you adjust it there. if the unit doesn't light at all you may have other issues. if you bought it used and were told eveything works but now it doesn't that may not have been true. the conversion is pretty easy so don't blame yourself if you don't know for sure this unit was operational before the switch to natural I would hate to send you chasing phantoms

How to convert a 61" residential rangefrom butane to natural gas?


Hello,
Ranges come set from the factory for natural gas. To convert it to propane, you should call your propane co and have a qualified serviceman do the work. You can void the warranty if you try to do it yourself and break something or don't convert it correctly. On an expensive range like this, you'll be better off having a professional do it right and keep that warranty intact. It could take 1 1/2 to 2 hours to complete the job. You may need to purchase an LP conversion kit if some of the orifices have to be exchanged, like on a unit with sealed stovetop burners. Write down the make, model # and serial # for reference when you make an appt to have it done. Hope that helps.

Converting broiler in oven from natural gas to lp gas on hotpoint gas range


On the oven portion you will need to turn the oriface clockwise all the way till it bottoms out. This is the conversion from natural gas to lp gas on all gas ovens. Also make sure the valve down toward the back has been flipped off of nat. to lp. Good luck

LP conversion


If you can turn a wrench you will be able to do the conversion yourself, just about all gas ranges come with the LP conversion kit attached to the back of the range usually around the gas regulator but sometimes it can be anywhere on the back, and the your owners manual has step by step instructions on how to do the conversion. Good luck !

Oven gas will not flow with pilot lit


There are basically two types of ranges to deal with:



those with sealed top burners, which are pretty much the standard today, and the conventional, 'non-sealed' ones.
While they operate in much the same way, their conversion is usually different. There are still a few ranges that use adjustable sealed burner orifices, but most are 'fixed' and must be individually replaced to convert each burner from one fuel to another.

(An orifice is simply a small brass fitting with a specifically sized hole very accurately drilled through it, and, if adjustable, has a provision to change the size of this hole by turning closed a threaded portion).

Either way, basically what you're doing when going from natural gas to LP is changing to a smaller orifice to allow for the higher pressure supplied by the 'bottled' gas (The available energy in each ft of gas is different too, but for our purpose here that's not important). Natural gas supplies typically run around a pressure of 5.5 inches water column, while LP runs at twice that pressure, averaging around 11 inches.

The orifice through which the gas travels to the burner must be smaller to accommodate this difference.
Adjustable orifices are simply 'snugged' down, clockwise, with a 1/2 inch open-end wrench, to convert them. Nearly all oven burners use these too - more about that in a minute.
Fixed orifices are replaced, and the good news is: the LP parts are usually included with the new range. On some brands (GE being one), the unused set is attached to a storage point on the stove, and this is a great idea. This way, they can't get lost, and if you ever want to convert back, there they are!
The not-so-good news: these little top burner orifices very often require a metric wrench to remove & install. And some can't be changed without a very slender wrench or nut driver.

Yellow flame after an Lp conversion


I remember having a stove with an adjustable orifice in the oven. It looked like a double nut arrangement. If that is what you find, tightening them to each other shrinks the size. Should turn fairly easy, do not force. You may also find a pilot adjustment behind the oven control knob. Hope this helps.

Whirlpool 465 Gas Stove conversion from propane to gas?


In most cases the orifices can be removed and reversed to convert from lp to natural gas. Sometimes you will need a conversion kit and you will need to look this up by model number. 465 is the oven capacity not the model number. You can locate the model number by pulling the drawer out and looking behind it. Please let me know the model and I can let you know what kit you need. Also I should let you know that your gas company is the most qualified to convert your range, and this conversion should not be attempted by anyone who is not qualified. If this conversion is not completed properly you could be risking your life and the lives of everyone in your home, so make sure you know what you are doing!! Or get a qualified person. Good luck and please be careful making any changes to your gas appliances. Please dont forget to rate me also.

Oven won't stay alight . has never worked from new . have checked all thermocouple connections all seem's well. probe is tight and in correct position.


To post a more specific solution you need to have the model number, but with the info you have given, I'm guessing that you have hooked the range up to LP gas and the range was not fully converted from natural to LP. If all burners burn nice, whomever converted the range may have missed one step. Many ranges with pilot lights have a small slot head screw behind the oven temp set knob which turns one way for natural, one way for LP.
