1951 Roper Gas Range

Hello, I have a beautiful 1951 Roper Gas Range (model# 1517304C) that is currently setup for burning Natural Gas. I am trying to find a conversion kit so my local appliance repair guy can convert it over for me. Do you have one, or can possibly point me in the direction as to where I might locate one.

SOURCE: Natural Gas to Propane for Ge xl44 Gas range

The kit is located at the rear of the range right near the gas valve, there are probably 5 spuds and an extender for the large burner, directions are with the range. For the bake and broil you will need to tighten the brass orifice nuts down as tight as possible, also the brass nut on the gas valve needs to be reversed
your local LP dealer should be able to do this for you if you are uncomfortable doing it yourself.

I have a Sears gas range that doesn't burn right. Yellow flames leave the bottom of my pans black. Ther is no fuel/air mixture adjustment. I have changed the gas regulator and LP gas bottle and no change


If this is new or you just got it used and put it in and noticed the problem I am guessing that it is ported for natural gas instead of LP or Propane. The majority of gas ranges are setup to use Natural gas when delivered unless specifically ordered for Propane. If you have had it for a while and it worked fine before then this might not be the problem something else has gone bad like a pressure regulator or a line got bent affecting pressure.
If it is ported for Natural gas and you want to use propane then most companies sell a conversion kit that will make it work right.

I have a 48" GE Monogram 4 burner with griddle gas/ duel fuel range (ZDP48N4GD1SS) that was set up for natural gas. I need to convert it to LP but the parts website doesn't show a conversion kit for this...


I just bought a new/used GE mongram natural gas range and need an LP conversion kit. Called GE and found them very UNhelpful. Can this be this hard? The party I called will not take the range back. $3000! I thought I got a great deal and cannot use the range the way it is. I need help too.

Gas stove need to switch to propane


Hi,

Hotpoint supplies the orifices and instructions with each range for converting. It is just that it is hidden, they attach it to the gas regulator. The regulator is near the bottom back typically. Here is a cut out from your use and care manual.

CONVERTING TO LP GAS (or converting
back to natural gas from LP)
This range leaves the factory set for use with natural
gas. If you want to convert to LP gas, the conversion
must be performed by a qualified LP gas installer.
The conversion instructions and LP orifices can be found
attached to the range next to the pressure regulator.
Keep these instructions and the orifices in case you want
to convert back to natural gas.

SWITCH FROM NATURAL GAS TO PROPANE GAS MAYTAG MGR 5755 ADQ LOKING FOR GUIDE AND DESCRIBE ALL PARTS, NEEDED TO SWITCH FROM NATURAL GAS TO PROPANE GAS . PLEASE THANK YOU


Hello. Contact your propane provider and they will get you the conversion kit for your maytag model. In fact, they will send a technician to your home for free to make the conversion for you.
If you want to do it yourself go to any appliance store that handles maytag and get the conversion kit. Then remove the orifices that are currently in the stove and replace them. Regards, Joe
PS please rate my answer.

I converted my 40'' Figidaire range to LP a few years back when I did not have access to natural gas. Now I need to convert it back. I do not still have the old parts and there seems to be no ''Natural gas...


I am having almost the same problem. Frigidaire told me to replace all 5 mixing tubes, ~$385, yeah right. They don't have the orifices itemized as an individual part, so no-one carries them, just the LP conversion kit. Another repair/parts guy advised me to drill out the orifices. Some other threads/blogs give the diameter to drill. Basically, since natural gas is 0.5 psi, you need a larger hole than your current propane orifices provide. Please speak up if you find out anything, I will try to do the same. Good luck.

Changing from natural gas to lp.


By getting a gas license! LOL

Remember to tip your waitress! I'll be here all week - Goodnight!

Alright...got it out of my system...here we go:

1. Find out if a conversion kit exists. Answer: Yes it does...in fact it came with it originally. If it had me doing the install, I would have taped the kit to the back of the range.
http://www.fixya.com/support/p106248-kitchenaid_kgsa906pss_gas_kitchen_range/manual-13680/page-7

....and I quote, "IMPORTANT: Your cooktop is factory-set for use with natural gas. If you wish to use L.P. Gas, an L.P. Gas Conversion Kit is included with your new range. Models with the TripleTier Flame Burner will include a TripleTier L.P. Gas Conversion Kit and a kit for standard ranges. See “Installation Instructions” for details on making this conversion.
2. Obtain the kit. This is more difficult than actually doing the conversion. Unless you have a dealer nearby, I'd simply call Kitchenaid directly: (1.800.461.5681) They will either send it to you directly (quite possibly for FREE) or point you in the right direction.
3. The kit will come with instructions, but briefly, here's what you're getting into: The kit will consist of 1-3 orifices. These will reduce the amount of flow going to the burner(s).
Why? Two reasons: a) Propane burns hotter and b) Propane moves quicker than N.G.
You might need: Allan Keys, Screwdrivers, Channel Locks, Adjustable Wrench.
You'll just disassemble the manifold, install the orifice(s), and GO!

Good Luck.

Converting a GE Profile Gas Range from LP to natural gas


GE ships gas ranges set for natural gas, with the LP orifices included, usually on a metal tab held with one screw right near the regulator (where the gas connects to the range). If the range was converted to LP, the person who did the conversion was suppose to put the natural gas orifices back in that holder. If they are missing, comment back on the exact model number and I can look up the part number(s) for you.
