Question about Tappan TGF363 Gas Kitchen Range

Open Question

I have a tappan gas range, no. tgf316gsc. i'm trying to change it from gas to LP. The top burners work great. I screwed off the cap from the regulator and the cap had a plastic cap with a nib. i made the nib protrude outwards. THe oven will not burn correctly either way. The flame is too high and even comes out into the oven itself. I turned the screw on where the air is regulated all the way up and then all the way down. It still does not change the flames. What do i do to regulate the flame in the broiler? Thank you

SOURCE: Kenmore Gas Range Oven not Working Properly

greg, sounds like your needle valve is not seated. Remove the bottom drawer. Look back to the base of the burner where the shutter air adjustment is. Right under there is the valve which should have a 1/2 inch or 7/16 nut. (I Forgot what size). Turn this nut clockwise until the flame is adjusted to the correct size, should be a nice blue flame. The nut maybe hard to turn because you are seating the needle. Catriver..post back

Brown TM210-4 kitchen range... how do i switch from LP Gas to Nat. Gas on this model? Is it just a regulator adjustment? or do i have to change the orifices as well?


Both. If this is a sealed top range, then you will have to change out the orifices and flip the cap on the regulator. If this is an open top style range (the top lifts up around the burners) then the orifices need to be adjusted and the regulator cap flipped. The oven/broiler orifices will also need to be changed or adjusted, depending on which kind they have. Some older models also require converting the oven thermostat from LP to natural gas (and vice versa) by turning the screw to the correct marked setting. If you have your owner's manual, it explains the conversion in it. If not we may be able to find it online for you to download. Douglas

In side the stove is all black how to change natural gas to propane


Not sure on which way your model is so in general on gas there are two ways to convert natural to LP gas , first you have to reverse the cap in the pressure regulator by screwing it out reversing it and screwing it in(long stem). Second you have to turn down the spuds which usually require a !/2 inch wrench to tighten down about one to two turns until snug.(do not overtighten which crushes) One spud for the bake will be found at the base of the burner assemble in the air shutter area, usually the top of the gas valve. There is one spud for each top burner, or newer units have orfices to change instead. Turn off gas and unplug before starting. Reason for this is natural gas operates at about 3.5 wci while LP gas pressure is about 9 to 11 wci. To repeat turn of gas and unplug before starting......

I just converted a Tappan stove to lp and cant get to light. It acts like no propane is getting to the burners and pilots.


HI, Things to check. Did you reverse the cap on the regulator? Adjust the oven orfice by turning it clockwise until it reached the bottom of the threads? Some mofels have a small shut off on the gas valve as well.
Change the burner orfices?
Make sure the gas shut off valve is turned on all the way?
Just a check list. I hope this helps you.

LP conversion for Thermador 4 burner range top


I have a Thermadore 6 burner gas cooktop PCG366E purchased January 08. I purchased the LP conversion kit, they only make one kit for all models. The instructions included with the kit were written for an older model and have not been updated by Thermador. The gas regulator is located next to gas inlet pipe. You have to get at it from above. Remove the 2 star burners over that side of the cooktop. You will need a 20mm socket to remove the nut at the center of the star burner. Lift it off and disconnect the wire to the ignitor ( You need to push on the spring lock in order to seperate the the connector terminal). Remove the stainless steel pan and then remove the metal pan underneath ( you will need a Torxs bit for this screw or vise grips). You should now see the regulator. At the top of the regulator is a cap with the letters NG visible. Twist this a 1/4 turn ccw, lift up and turn over to expose the letters LP reinsert. The regulator is now ready. You will need to replace the orifice tips at each burner. Use a 7mm socket with an extension. Put a piece of tape in the socket to hold the orifice in place while you insert it. You also need to adjust the valves. You must pull off the knobs and and remove the trim bezel. If you look through the screw hole on the right you will see a screw head (bypass screw). Insert long skinny flat blade screwdriver through the hole and turn the screw CW all the way (about 1/4 to 1/2 turn in my case). My cooktop had two burners with a low simmer feature, This devise is located in front of the bypass screw. It has a hole in it but does not align well with the head of the bypass screw and makes it difficult to turn the scew. Thats it, I hope this info has been helpful. I have not yet connected the propane therefore have not tested the unit but it should work.

Lp flames to top of oven


You need to tighten down the orifice spud for the bake burner. Remove drawer in bottom of oven. Look for bottom of burner tube, where the shutter adjustment is. Right below it is the orifice spud. Usually a goldish color. Take 1/2 inch open end wrench and tighten until it stops. Do-not overtighten! Try it now. If flames are still to high, tighten a little more. Repeat if needed.

Tappan Gas stove


The pilot adjustment screw is located on the back side of the oven temperature thermostat. Lift the cook top to access it. Use a flat screwdriver to adjust... counter clockwise= bigger flame.

Flames in oven are WAY too high! Having trouble lowering them.


Did you change the orifice in the regulator? The orifice opening for LP is a different diameter than the opening for Natural Gas. If you've already attempted changing the settings from Natural to LP, you may want to double check the orifice under the regulator cap, or...you may have a regulator problem. You will need to turn the gas off prior to attempting this. The regulator will be located in the back of the oven somewhere near where the gas line connects to the stove. There is a gas orifice that needs to be turned over to change gas settings. "LP" should be present if it is set correctly. Let me know if this helps.
