Question about GE JGSP23 Gas Kitchen Range

Propane Conversion Burner Turndown

We purchased a new GE range in 2003, converted to propane, and installed it in 2004. The burners do not turn down adequately, causing significant cooking difficulty. For example, when making pancakes I must turn off the burners between batches to let the griddle cool. Is our burner turndown problem a standard problem with gas-to-propane conversions? and is there anything we can do to correct this problem? Thanks for your help.

It has to do with the diameter of th holes. The holes for natural gas are much bigger and this sounds like could definitely be your problem.
Thanks,

I've just converted my stove from natural gas to propane and the oven and broiler flame are both to high, how can I lower them?


When converting from natural gas to propane you have to switch the regulator to propane. then on most modern stoves you have to turn the orifice hoods down to adjust for the higher pressure of propane. there are some stoves that you have to purchase a propane conversion kit with different orifices for the burners and oven burners.

How do you convert to propane a kenmore elite model # 79671622310


You have to get the conversion kit. Mostly the burner gas nozzels has to be changed. Propane has a higher BTU value than natural gas. So the burner nozzle has to be smaller with propane.

You have to have the right nozzle kit for your dryer. Normally the propane nozzle kit comes with the new dryer. It is attached in a plastic seethrough bag and attached somewhere in the back of dryer.

Also you have to adjust the air opening in the burner for propane. Propane need more air than natural gas to burn properly. If you buy the conversion kit or find the conversion kit in the back of your unit, it will clearly give instructions how to do it.

I got a GE gas range (model JGBS22) from a co-worker. She had converted it from gas to propane. I just had a plumber hook it up to natural gas but, even with the conversion manual, he couldn't change the...


There should be a set of orifices for each burner as well as the oven and broiler. When the unit was converted to propane, these orifices should have been replaced and the ones for gas put in with the conversion kit installation information. The kit should have been reattached near the pressure regulator.

If the kit was missing the orifices, then, yes, you are missing pieces. Check with your coworker if the conversion kit was missing. If you have the kit, it can be easily done by any appliance installer (or repair person) licensed for handling NG. (At least on our range, the conversion kit installation was straight forward. Every orifice was clearly labeled with the labels different for each burner and for the gas/LP kits (ABCD (NG) vs MNOP (LP)) .) The regulator is the only part that switched for LP or NG without the kit.

As I recall, the only tools we needed for the top burners were a small wrench (10 mm) and a small flat blade screwdriver. Remove one orifice and put in the appropriate replacement. Then adjust the burners so that they didn't blow out when the oven was opened or quickly turned from high to low (for the simmer burner). The oven and broiler took a bit longer. Several screws had to be removed to get at the orifices. Then the air flow had to be adjusted for the incoming gas.

I hope this helps.

It sounds like during the conversion process a step or two may have been missed.

The gas orifice for the main oven burner is most likely to large (was not converted to LP), or the air shutter on the burner was not adjusted. I would not use the oven with the flames that way.

There should be instructions with the installation instructions on how to convert the oven, basically on most oven burners the orifice is screwed down (tightened) until the flame is the right size, then the air shutter on the burner is adjusted for a blue flame.

Let me know if you have questions

Oven gas will not flow with pilot lit


There are basically two types of ranges to deal with:



those with sealed top burners, which are pretty much the standard today, and the conventional, 'non-sealed' ones.
While they operate in much the same way, their conversion is usually different. There are still a few ranges that use adjustable sealed burner orifices, but most are 'fixed' and must be individually replaced to convert each burner from one fuel to another.

(An orifice is simply a small brass fitting with a specifically sized hole very accurately drilled through it, and, if adjustable, has a provision to change the size of this hole by turning closed a threaded portion).

Either way, basically what you're doing when going from natural gas to LP is changing to a smaller orifice to allow for the higher pressure supplied by the 'bottled' gas (The available energy in each ft of gas is different too, but for our purpose here that's not important). Natural gas supplies typically run around a pressure of 5.5 inches water column, while LP runs at twice that pressure, averaging around 11 inches.

The orifice through which the gas travels to the burner must be smaller to accommodate this difference.
Adjustable orifices are simply 'snugged' down, clockwise, with a 1/2 inch open-end wrench, to convert them. Nearly all oven burners use these too - more about that in a minute.
Fixed orifices are replaced, and the good news is: the LP parts are usually included with the new range. On some brands (GE being one), the unused set is attached to a storage point on the stove, and this is a great idea. This way, they can't get lost, and if you ever want to convert back, there they are!
The not-so-good news: these little top burner orifices very often require a metric wrench to remove & install. And some can't be changed without a very slender wrench or nut driver.

Converting from natural gas to propane


Where do all orifices go on anything gas? Right there where the burner meets gas valve. The air shutter sits right in front of the orifice for proper air to gas ratio right.Go out and look at yer gas grill. Where the burners meet the gas valve ye shall find the orifice.

Natural gas to propane


GE is one company which generally includes all necessary parts and instructions for conversion to LP with the range without having to order or purchase anything extra. Check the mini manual in the white envelope pasted to the back of the range for instructions. Generally, the LP orifices are in a metal holder near the gas regulator (right where the gas connects to the range). You will have to flip the plunger in the center of the regulator and turn down the collar (with a 1/2 inch open end wrench) on the oven burner and broil burner about 3 full turns. Air shutters are usually OK without any adjustments.
