Some gas ranges cannot be converted. If your model can be converted it normally requires flipping over the regulator diaphragm and also changing orifices for all burners, surface and oven. Most modern new appliances come with the LP orifices located on a card attached to the regulator.
I understand that you want to convert your Natural Gas unit to LP (Propane) gas you will need to purchase a conversion kit. Please give me about an hour or so and I will locate it and the instructions to convert.
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.
It's probably not quite as easy as everyone says. Most gas appliances use a different control valve for LP (propane) and natural gas. You most likely will have to eplace the control valve with an LP one. I would contact Amana to see if they offer a conversion kit -- it would probably come with detailed instructions.
Yes you can convert to LP gas. go to this web site to get the parts. http://www.vulcanhart.com/manuals/F-30536.pdf
Go to page 9 and look at parts # 57 - 60 that is the part you need to change. You need to know the sea level that you are at though so you get the right part.
Now if you go to page 8 you will find where it goes part # 53 thru 61

With the gas turned OFF, you will need to find the gas regulator on the range. It will located in the back of the oven along the bottom somewhere. It's usually a square shaped valve with a nut on top of it. The gas valve orifice is located under the nut. All you need to do is remove the nut, take the orifice out, flip the orifice over and re-install to convert from one type of gas to the other. It should be marked which side is LP (propane) and which side is for Natural Gas. LP will have a smaller orifice opening than Natural. You will want to make sure the orifice size you are using is facing UP, then screw the nut back on the regulator. You will also have to do this for all the surface burners (if you haven't done so already). You will know if you have the orifice turned the wrong way because the flames will be too high, the oven will get way too hot and there will be soot everywhere. Hope this helps you.
