SOURCE: how do i change from lp gas to natural gas on wall

First thing you will need to do is find out from the manufacturer of the oven if there is a conversion kit available and if the appliance is convertable. If there is then you can order the kit and follow the installation instructions. Also check the back of the oven for an envelope that may contain the gas orfice replacement heads to convert the appliance to natural gas. If you find the replacement orfice then you will need to remove the lp orfice from the burner and install the natural one. Then the appliance gas regulator will need to have the pressure adjusted lower for natural gas. There is usually a removable cap on top of the regulator on the oven. When you remove this cap there is usually a small metal ring that you can remove and flip over. It will say "nat" on one side and "lp" on the other. You will need to turn this ring over and re-insert so it displays "nat". This will change the gas pressure from 13 inches W.C. to 4 inches W.C. Some appliances only require the orfice change and no regulator adjustment but make sure that is the case with your oven because if you feed 13 inches W.C. pressure to a burner with a natural gas orfice...YOU WILL GET A HUGE BURNER FLAME AND MAY BURN/FLASH YOURSELF...So use extreme caution when converting a gas appliance. And if the oven has a pilot you will need to adjust the pilot pressure or change it's orfice if it has one. If it is electronic ignition no adjustment to that will be needed. Also unplug the electrical power the the unit while working on it.

SOURCE: convert to lp gas

Hello,
You will need the owner's manual to follow their LP conversion instructions. You will need the make, model and serial # in order to buy the LP conversion kit (if needed) from a local appliance parts store or from the store where you bought the appliance. Typically, you will be either adjusting (turning down) or exchanging the main burner orifice(s), as well as adjusting the air shutter on the burner venturi tube, as needed for a bluer flame. The appliance regulator will need to be converted, which is usually done by flipping the cap. If you don't have your owner's manual, leave another comment for me with the model # and I'll see if I can find it online for you. I have not worked on this particular type of oven in my neck of the woods, but ovens are all pretty similar in design. Some also have a thermostat that needs to be converted by turning the Nat to LP selector behind the temp dial. Hope that helps. Douglas

SOURCE: have parts for converting lp

You need to change the orifices in the burners and/or gas valve and you'll need the proper parts. Don't forget the oven/broiler burner also. Natural gas works under much less pressure than propane(LP). Natural gas is lighter than air and floats upwards as where LP is heavier and stays low to the floor.
each orifice will have to be tightened with an adjustable wrench--- if it's only 1/2 tightened it will be set for natural gas. If you tighten it all the way down it allows less gas flow to come through and will set it for LP.

Convert lp natural gas


To convert a lincoln LP gas oven to a natural gas, you actually first of all need to buy from the supplier an orifice ment for natural gas and change. The difference in the orifices could be in the size of orifice aperture.
The orifice i'm talking about is located in the burner assembly. you got to dis assemble the burner so as to get to it.
After that you need to adjust the main gas manifold when the oven is on. The adjustment must be done such that the pilot flame is not yellowish

Tip

Changing your gas appliance from natural gas to LP or vice versa.


You have an LP gas stove which you really like and would like to take to a new home but the new home has a natural gas hookup. Since natural gas is already available it would be convenient to be able to use it. Can you convert your unit over to work on natural gas?

Yes it is possible to convert any LP gas appliance to natural gas or from natural gas to LP. The only difference is the size of the orifice used in the burner.

LP gas is composed of a much larger molecule than natural gas and requires a larger orifice to output the same amount of gas as a natural gas unit at the same setting. Therefore if you used an LP stove on natural gas it would produce too much heat and burn rather intensely. If you used a natural gas stove on LP it would not have much flame at all. You can see the problem. The solution is also obvious. You need the correct orifice.

Changing the orifice is easy. It is located in the middle of the burner and unscrews out of the unit. Install the new one the opposite way. Do not overtighten it.Usually the burners are made of soft metal and can strip easily.

The parts you would need are available at most good appliance stores but I would recommend the following site http://www.repairclinic.com . The parts will be cheaper at repairclinic. They have parts for almost any brand and a great search engine. They also have excellent videos showing how to make the repair.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

I have a Sears Kenmore Elite 790 hooked up to propane .. is it ok to have it hooked up to propane or is this over for natural gas only?


Kenmore Gas ranges can be used with Natural gas or Lp. They come from the factory set up for Natural gas so if you want to use Lp it needs to be converted by you or your gas company. There are several adjustments that have to be made and some ranges require orifices to be changed. Your installation manual tells how to convert it but if you're not sure about doing it you would be better off the call the gas man.

Recently purchased Frig. gas stove.Want to convert from natural gas to Lp.Do you remove spud and insert Lp oriface in spud then screw spud back onto line?Lp oriface is a lot smaller than oriface for...


Not really sure which model you have but when converting the over, ether bake or broil burner you tighten down the orfice cap. If you remove the burner off the oven valve you will notice that you can put a wrench on the orfice cap. Just tighten snuggly. If you over tighten you will crush the orfice under the cap.

CONVERT FROM NATURAL GAS TO PROPANE GAS


Pat, it is very important that all appliances that used natural are guaranteed to be LP Gas approved. Fact is natural gas uses about 1/4 oz. psi where Lp Gas uses 8lbs. to 13psi
This is critical that the person doing the work has experience in converting the two types to prevent fire or property damage. I hope I helped answer your question, let me know if this works out for you. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Converting aan LP oven to gas


In most cases the pressure regulator has to be changed or adjusted. The orfices on each burner, oven, broiler and surface burner may need to be changed also. Sometimes they can be adjusted. Sometimes the threads on the pipe are different also. This is to prevent accidental connection to the wrong fuel. The big difference is the gas pressure. LP is usually around 10 - 12 lbs and natural gas is usually around 3 lbs. Properly adjusted you will like natural gas much better than LP as it is slightly hotter. The information will be in the instruction book and also on the Jenn air web site. Whirlpool owns both Maytag and Jenn aire so check all sites. The conversion kit is usually less than $50.
