Convert to LP?

Hello, How can this unit be used or converted to LP??

There must be a way... Perhaps by regulating the propane so it does not flow under as high of pressure?

If it is possible, then the orifice has to be changed. The regulator may need to be changed as well. I am a certified LP technician for recreational vehicles, but I don't know enough about this particular appliance to say for sure if it can be converted. The best thing is to contact Miele directly, but this sort of conversion always requires a different orifice. Note that propane, butane, and natural gas are all forms of LP (Liquified petroleum), so conversion between the 3 is usually possible

GE Range - oven flames too high after regulator replacement and self clean


You need a Gas tech/plumber there urgently!!!!
If the gas jets in your oven had not been changed to accomodate LP gas then the orifice on your existing jets are still to large in diameter. In other words your using Natural Gas jets ( lower pressure jets) for Lp which has a much higher pressure than Nat. gas, this can be extremely dangerous, & could cause major problems.
Again I strongly suggest you contact a Gas tech/Plumber & do not use your oven until it has beeen checked by a professional.Good luck

Intalled the 30" gas oven, converted to LP (both


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.

The flame on my Ikea DATID Hob is huge and has a lot of yellow flame. It makes my pots black, and is difficult to regulate because the flame is so big.


Hi, it really sounds like your cooktop is not set up for your type of gas. More than likely, it is set up for Natural gas and you are using Propane. You need to convert to LP using the kit. The only thing you have to change is the orifices.

Propane to Natural Gas Conversion


on the regulator there is a 1/2" nut, made of aluminum. loosen the nut, thur it around and screw it back in, there is a "NAT" on one side, and a "LP" on the other side, make sure the "LP" is facing out if you are using propane, and "NAT", if you are using Natural Gas. Very simple, all you need is a 1/2" wrench, or a small adjustable wrench,

Convert to LP (propane)


Contact Miele directly via their website. This would require an orifice change if it is possible for this appliance. Since natural gas, butane, and propane are all forms of LP (Liquified Petroleum), it is usually, but not always, possible.
