A:

It seems like everybody is converting their range from natural gas to lp these days. I researched your question and found someone had the same question as yours. An expert posted a very helpful answer. I have provided the link below. I hope this helps!

Thank you for your question.

Because you are working with a gas range conversion and because of the potential danger with working gas appliances, I would recommend that you have a licensed gas technician or your LP gas provider do this for you.

In looking at the parts list for this older range it look like the orifices are adjustable from NAT. gas to LP gas.

• Lift the cook-top and locate the brass colored orifices on the end of the gas valves where they protrude into the burner tube. It will take a ½ open end wrench and turn the orifice spuds until the shoulder of the orifice bottoms on the valve face.

NOTE! Do not over tighten.

• Do this for all the burners.

• The same is true for the oven burner.

• Remove the oven bottom.

• Remove the nut on the flame spreader. (It looks like a butterfly wing.

• Locate the orifice on the safety valve and tighten the orifice down to the shoulder of the safety valve.

Note! Again do not over tighten.

• Locate the Pressure Regulator, (it is what the gas line connects to), it will have a cap on top. Remove the cap and flip over and reinstall onto the regulator. Note! On some pressure regulators there will be a lever on the side to change from Nat to LP.

• Once you have the range converted you may have to adjust the low flame setting on the top burners.

• Pull the knob off the range and with a jeweler’s type flat blade screwdriver adjust the low flame setting.

I hope this will help.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Q:

Why won't my oven ignite after converting my gas range back to Natural gas?

A:

When the spark electrode ignites the oven pilot, the pilot flame must engulf the thermal couple that should be located directly above the pilot assembly before the safety gas valve will open to let gas out into the burner assembly. The thermal couple is part of the safety gas valve. When the thermal couple becomes hot enough it should cause the gas safety valve to open. There is a good chance that you may not have fully converted the range back to Natural gas. There is a small oven pilot adjustment screw located on the face of the oven thermostat that can be turned one way or the other for Nat or LP gas. See instructions in the image below. The instructions cover converting to LP gas but all you have to do is reverse the procedure for Natural gas.

Q:

How do I convert my Kenmore gas range model 911.7158810 back to natural gas?

A:

The owner's manual/installation guide is no longer available in hard copy or online for this older Kenmore gas range. I do not have conversion information available for this model. Without the proper information due to the age of this range, we will not be able to advise you on the conversion to natural gas.

Some ranges cannot be converted from one fuel source (LP gas) to another (natural gas).

You may be able to have the range safely converted by checking with your local gas company to see if they will do it. If not, then I recommend that you consider replacing the range instead of trying to convert it.
