THIS RANGE IS FACTORY SET FOR USE WITH NATURAL GAS. USE
THESE INSTRUCTIONS WHEN CONVERTING TO LP (PROPANE)
GAS AND WHEN CONVERTING BACK TO NATURAL GAS.
WARNING
This conversion kit must be installed by a qualified service agency in accordance with the manufacturer’s
instructions and all applicable codes and requirements of the
authority having jurisdiction. If the information in these instructions is not followed exactly, a fire, explosion or production
of carbon monoxide may result, causing property damage,

TOOLS REQUIRED
���������
�������������������
Adjustable wrench
1/2" open-end wrench
Pliers
Phillips head screwdriver
Flat-blade screwdriver (blade width
approximately 3/32" across)
Nut driver (5/16" or small
adjustable wrench)
STEP 1 PREPARE RANGE FOR
CONVERSION
STEP 3 CONVERTING THE
SURFACE BURNERS
• Disconnect main gas supply to the range.
• Disconnect the electrical power to the range.
–If range has not been connected to the gas supply, or if a
flexible connection was made, the range may be pulled out
from the wall to make conversion easier.
• Lift the burner assemblies straight up (set aside) to gain
access to the surface burner orifice spuds.
• Using a 5/16" nutdriver, or adjustable wrench, remove each
of the four (4) spuds on the surface burner gas inlet tubes.
Replace them with the correct gas spuds mounted in a holder
at the right rear of the range, above the regulator. Natural
gas spuds are “BRASS” and LP
gas spuds are “SILVER”.
����������� ������
Return the spuds you
�������
��������
removed from the inlet
tubes to the holder
��
above the regulator. To
prevent leakage, make
sure the spuds are
securely screwed into
the gas inlet tubes.
• Replace the burner
assemblies.
CAUTION
If the gas supply to the range is disconnected
for any reason, see the installation instructions for proper
connection and safety precautions.
STEP 2 CONVERT THE PRESSURE
625Dia30
REGULATOR
WARNING
Do not remove the pressure regulator
from the range.
• Locate the pressure regulator on the back of the range on
the left side.
• Use an adjustable wrench to remove the hex-nut from the
pressure regulator.

STEP 4 CONVERT THE OVEN
BURNER ORIFICE
������������
Oven Burner
• Remove oven door, broiler pan and rack, oven racks, and
oven bottom. The lower burner orifice hood is located behind
the broiler drawer (on some models, a metal shield must be
removed to access the orifice hood).
• To convert to LP gas, use a 1/2" wrench to turn the lower
burner orifice hood clockwise. Tighten the hood until it is
snug. To prevent damage, do not overtighten the hood.

A metal shield
may need to
be removed on
some models
to access the
orifice hood.
• Apply sideward finger pressure to remove the plastic pin from
the nut.
Note: To remove the pin, place the nut on a flat surface and
press the pin sideways
with your fingers.
���������
• Rotate the pin 180 degrees and snap the pin back into
the nut.
���
���������
�����
STEP 5 ADJUSTING THE
AIR SHUTTER
������������
To adjust the air shutter for LP gas,
loosen the Phillips head screw
and rotate the shutter to the full
open position. For natural gas, the
shutter should be open 1/2" or about
three-quarters of the way open.
���
• Reinsert the assembly into the regulator and tighten the
hex-nut. Do not overtighten.

STEP 6 CHECK FOR LEAKS
STEP 9 REPLACE OVEN PARTS
• Connect range to gas.
When all connections have been made, make sure all range
controls are in the off position and turn on the main gas supply valve. Use a liquid leak detector at all joints and connections to check for leaks in the system.
Replace oven bottom, oven racks, oven door and broiler pan
and rack.
STEP 10 COMPLETE AND ADHERE
CONVERSION STICKER
CAUTION: DO NOT USE A FLAME
TO CHECK FOR GAS LEAKS.
Upon completion of this conversion, fill out the LP sticker
included with the instructions. Once complete, apply the sticker
to the back of the range near the regulator. The conversion
sticker must reflect the change in fuel.
When using test pressures greater than 1/2 psig to pressure
test the gas supply system of the residence, disconnect the
range and individual shutoff valve from the gas supply piping.
625Dia30
When using test pressures of 1/2 psig or less to test the gas
supply system, simply isolate the range from the gas supply
system by closing the individual shutoff valve.
If converting back to natural gas from LP, remove the LP sticker
from the back of the range.
Save these instructions for reference in case the range must
be converted back to natural gas.
STEP 7 CHECKING THE FLAME SIZE
Turn on oven burner.
����������
��
Check the flame size for
��������
LP gas. The flame should
have approximately
������������
1-inch blue cones. After
������
30 seconds of burner
operation, check for
flames lifting off the burner
ports. If lifting is observed,
gradually reduce the
air shutter opening until
flames are stabilized.
Some yellow tipping may be normal���������
on LP gas. See Step 8.
The conversion to LP gas for the standard twin burner gas
range with electric ignition is now completed.
STEP 8 CHECK QUALITY OF FLAMES
The combustion quality of the burner flames needs to be
determined visually.
(A) Yellow flames–
Further adjustment
required
(B) Yellow tips–
Normal for LP Gas
(C) Soft Blue flames–
Normal for Natural Gas
If burner flames look like (A), further air shutter adjustment
���������
is required. Normal burner flames should look like (B) or (C),
depending on the type of gas you use. With LP gas, some
yellow tipping on the outer cones is normal.
