Question about Maytag MGR6772BDS Gemini Gas Kitchen Range

2 Answers

Hello, I bought this model 7 years ago. At our home, we had natural gas. We sold this home and bought a new one with propane gas facilities. I think it is possible to modify this Gemini model to operate with propane gas. How can I do it and where do I go to buy new fitting ? Gaston Leblond Québec, Qc

    My question needs more details. On the top of this Gemini model, I have 4 burners (9 100 (2), 14 000 and 4 000 BTU). I have to change these burners because they don't fit for propane gas. So, my question is where can I find the right burners for propane gas to replace the natural gas burner ?

    Thank you for your attention.

To convert from natural to propane you need a whole bunch of new stuff.The 2 gases have completely different properties.You need a valve,all new burners(inside and stovetop),probably a regulator,fittings,thread tape,and maybe a couple more things I cannot think of right off hand.You will also need a manometer to check for leaks.By the time you get all this,you probably could get a new stove which is what you should probably do and sell your old one.I did appliance repairs for a few years and natural gas and propane are 2 completely different beasts.If you have no knowledge or background with it,I HIGHLY RECOMMEND you do not attempt it because of the dangerous nature of gas.Any place you wish to call for confirmation will probably give you a similar answer.Good luck!

    I realize I made a pretty clear point in my solution but a couple of more things occurred to me while I was running errands.The whole tubing will need replacing because different gases have different densities and require different size spaces to route the gas required to achieve a good temperature.A denser gas,small diameter tubing,less dense gas needs a wider tube.Also,there are very good reasons why there are propane stoves and natural gas stoves,not just one stove fits all gases,it just doesn't work.So you need to replace anything related to gas flow or burn in your stove.

Yes. It just takes different or faces. You can get them at just about any hardware store.

I just bought a propane Weber Summit 660 bbq grill and really want to convert it to natural gas, is there any one out there who has done it even though Weber doesn't recommend it and if so how did you do...


weber does not permit this anymore because the weber family sold the company and models are being fabricated overseas where quality control is unreliable. however, converting the models is no more difficult today than it was 10 years ago; we convert webers to NG and to LP all the time. Simply change the orifices and the regulator with orifices drilled based on the BTU for the pressure of the NG regulator. We stock the parts for this and it takes about 10 minutes to convert.

I have a Turbo Elite 3 burner barbecue. Want to convert it from propane to natural gas. Where can I get a conversion kit?


Your best bet is BBQ's Galore. Since it's their grill, if there is a conversion kit for that model, they'll have it. However, not all gas grills are convertible from one gas type to another.

I have 3 natural gas fire places. i would like to know if i can change it to propane. i'm thinking i would just have to change the logs and hook a tank up outside. can some tell me if this would work.


Hello,
Typically gas log sets are factory made for either natural gas or propane. If you want to use them on propane you need to find out if a LP conversion kit is available for your brand/model #. Ask the place where you bought them or ask the company that installed them (if you didn't put them in yourself). If they can be changed over to propane, then you will need to buy the propane tanks, regulator and gasline or just have your local propane company put in a pair of 100# cylinders for each fireplace (or 420# cylinder to service all 3 fireplaces) with an auto-switchover regulator. They can also do the conversion, if the conversion kits are available. Let me now if you have any other questions. Douglas

Need to adjust from L.P. to N.G.


Hello. no problem. to convert your appliance from liquid propane to natural gas you will need a set of appliance brand and model specific orifices that are for natural gas only. Contact your new natural gas provider and tell them your oven brand and model number. If they do not have the exact orifices you will need, they can order them for you and they may even come to your home, convert your oven and hook it up for you. Just ask.

Liquid Propane vs. Propane (like used for BBQ)


They are the same thing.

The propane you buy for your BBQ is liquid in the bottom of the tank. At the top, it comes out as a gas, which you run through a regulator and then into your grill. If you by some chance turn the tank sideways, the valve inside will shut and keep the liquid propane from coming out. If it did you could have a serious fire.

However, there is a difference between what most folks call "Natural Gas" and propane. If you have gas piped into your home, it's natural gas and not propane.

Natural gas dryers won't run right on propane (LP Gas) and vice versa. There is usually a conversion kit you can buy to switch them over.

Trouble with waterheater


DO NOT USE THIS HEATER UNTIL IT HAS BEEN CHECKED OUT BY A PROFESSIONAL!

Most all gas appliances can use propane or natural gas, but they ship from the factory with orifices for one or the other.

Propane is rated at 11 iwg, natural gas at 7 iwg (where iwg=inches water gauge. 27 iwg=1 psig) (it takes a different regulator spring to handle this small difference in pressure.

A propane orifice will be smaller than a natural gas orifice.

The store that you bought the water heater should know what they sold you, and know if they have a kit to convert the regulator and orifices.

Flame way too high and yellow-Frigidaire Model #FGF328GM


call an approved frigidaire gas technician as it is possible that the jets in use are not for the propane gas
they are probably natural gas jets which have a larger jet size
the air shrouds around the jets have to also be adjusted to get the blue flame
you may be able to have it checked out under warranty as it is new
if you touch it your self , the warranty will be void

Natural gas conversion


I have a similar problem. But, I want to convert it to propane. I have a 5 burner vent free modelMN300HPA. If your are handy. I would consider shipping you the parts inside mine to install in yours. These parts are very simple to remove after removing the access panels. I have taken mine out already. Called procom then to no less find out the propane parts needed are not sold by them. I think only the injectors (5) the main valve (regulator) and the pilot are the only things need to change. When taking out the pilot this is easly done, By removing the nut on the supply line. And then bending back the retaining tabs to then slide back the pilot then it comes out of the assembly bracket. Injectors are simply removed. Regulator located at the bottom is a simple remove. The only other item that might be questionable would be the valve that selects the amount of burners you would like to operate. And I would think this would be the same and not need removing. Let me know if I can help. I would like to get mine converted to propane. Thanks Tom
