    Adjusted the 1/2 inch nozzle (spud) as far toward the LP setting as it would go and the flames are still too long with the air vent optimized also.

    Same thing - converted to LP and oven flame is too high. Continued to tighten which eventually solved the problem. This was uncomfortable as it took a surprising amount of force to tighten and there was a warning not to overtighten. When finished the nut was against the base of the housing. Thanks for your help!

Just bought a Kenmore and did this conversion myself. You do not change the oven nozzle (jets) but have to wrench it down with a 1/2" wrench as per instructions. After I did this the falme was high as you described. I wrenched it down further and adjusted the air shuttle and it was fine. The brioler is done the same. The wrench adjustment is tight so be aware.

    I had the same deal, had wrench it all the way down, then opened air full and it is working fine.

The orrifice that needs tightening is under the air hood. It is in the instructions in the stove top conversion section. It took us 3 hrs to realize we had skipped that step.

Sounds like the oven orifice was not changed. Natural Gas orifice is about 2 times bigger than a Propane orifice so this sounds like the problem. The kit was not installed 100% correctly.

Remember this: Crank down and flip. You must tighten down all the top and the oven valve orifices and open all the hutters and flip the nut on the regulator. crank down and flip.

I have a gas oven. The flame burns yellow and leaves too much soot on the wall near the flame. Is there a way to clean the element thing? Dave

I am not sure. However, people in our area of sc, have had burner problems because a local utility added propane to their natural gas because they got it a bargain. guy

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.

Whirlpool 465 Gas Stove conversion from propane to gas?

In most cases the orifices can be removed and reversed to convert from lp to natural gas. Sometimes you will need a conversion kit and you will need to look this up by model number. 465 is the oven capacity not the model number. You can locate the model number by pulling the drawer out and looking behind it. Please let me know the model and I can let you know what kit you need. Also I should let you know that your gas company is the most qualified to convert your range, and this conversion should not be attempted by anyone who is not qualified. If this conversion is not completed properly you could be risking your life and the lives of everyone in your home, so make sure you know what you are doing!! Or get a qualified person. Good luck and please be careful making any changes to your gas appliances. Please dont forget to rate me also.

Nat gas to propane conversion

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.

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.
