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.

Maytag range Natural gas jets to Propane jets


it is a simple replacement but the problem is properly adjusting the air shrouds to get the right air/ gas mixture to burn correctly
lpg jets are available from a gas supply shop and because of the dangerous nature of gas , I would suggest that you have an accredited gas fitter do the conversion

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.

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.

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.
