You should just be able to set the cooktop in after you attach the downdraft, usually there are tabs on the downdraft that clamp on to the granite cutout. There is probably a closed-cell foam strip that runs under the lip of the cooktop, I would just make sure it seals to the granite properly (no gaps) and put a couple dabs of silicone in between the lip of the cooktop and the granite. Usually the cooktop is heavy enough that the silicone will keep it from moving around.
I HATE TO TRY AND EXPLANE THIS FOR FEAR SOME THING MAY GO WRONG DID YOU FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS TO THE LETTER. FROM NATURAL GAS TO LP YOU SHOULD OF HAD TO CHANGE THE POSISTION OF THE ORVICE IN THE REGULATER THAT IS WHY YOU ARN'T GETTING THRU THE REGULATOR CHECK YOUR DIRECTIONS AGAIN SOME TIME YOU HAVE TO THIGHTEN THE NUT ON THE REGULATOR SO IT DISTORTS THE ORFICE TO LP, AND SOME MODELS YOU HAVE TO TURN THE ORFICE OVER. BECAREFUL AND TRY AGAIN
Hello, thank you for posting. It sounds like you have done a little work to get the unit converted to LP. Make sure you didn't install the regulator upside down. Sometime you can get a defective regulator out of the box. Some of the regulators have the "N" for natural gas if so you need to convert this as well. I suggest you send a factory repair person just to double check on the unit. It well not cost anything to have them test out the unit if you feel the part is "broken".
Happy Holidays! Please rate me "4 thumbs" if that was helpful.
All gaq cooktops come from the factory ready to be installed to natural gas. If the only gas available is propane the orifices have to be changed. The orifices are product specific and must be ordered for your particular stove.
That being said, if this is a new cooktop you have the answer. If this is a used cooktop and you do not know which style of orifices are installed now just contact your propane company and they will be happy to help you for free.
good luck with this. and please remember to rate my answer.
If the knobs will not push down and turn, this indicates the gas valve stem has become contaminated with cooking debris. The only solution to this, would be to replace the gas valves. With the cooktop more than 10ys old, parts may be difficult to find. If you can find parts, they will probably be prohibitively expensive.
