Hi,
Propane will often give you an odor even though you have done everything correctly...just spray all connection with soapy water to make sure you don't have any leaks...

Hi, I have a Maytag super capacity plus free standing stove. I think the past owners refitted it for propane. However, when I use the oven I can hear it turning off and on with the propane. Also, I smell...


My advice is to get a professional person to check this out. If you smell propane then there has to be a leak of gas. It could kill you if you don't get it repaired right way. Large flames mean you may have the wrong orifices in it.

Switched from natural gas to propane now oven flames up sides how do I fix? Model#362.75571691



Propane and natural gas are two different fuels and require adjustments to the appliances to which theye are connected. Typically, when converting to propane from natural gas, a pressure regulator and a change in gas jets are required. This is because propane has a different heating value (hotter) and behaves differently.

Also, propane doesn't burn as cleanly as natural gas so after you have made the hardware changes, if you start to smell something in the kitchen, you may need to crack a window slightly to provide for better venting.

Please be careful

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.
