Unhappy Caloric Gas Stove with heater unit

I have a 1993 Caloric gas stove with a heater unit. The model # off the stove is RBP39AA / P1141725N W. Code CT. It was factory shipped set up for natural gas. I need to convert it to propane. I'm having a hard time with dealers. Some say yes I can, some say no I can't. Some say I need just 1 orfice replacement, others say I need to change out the pressure regulator, all orfices and maybe burner units. Some dealers can't trace the model # of this stove. I'ts correct-I have the owners manual and it's also written on that. The serial # is 9311206036. The stove is in very good condition. The previous owner is a good friend of mine. I would love to be able to use it at my farm property. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello cheri. Welcome to my Gas Appliances topic and the Do-It-Yourself Web Site.

Question has been asked several times about stoves with built in heaters. Not familar with them personally and not likely anyone in this topic is either. Unless they are service persons in areas where such models are more popular. Such is not the case in my area nor many whom post replies.

I would doubt there isn't a way to convert the appliance. Depending upon that specific model, determines to what extent the conversion will be. Most likely every orifice will need to be replaced. Most likely but not always.

Same applies to the appliance regulator. Most likely will need to be replaced unless it happens to be one that is convertable by turning over the tower cap or moving a lever, etc.

Local appliance parts stores should be the best places to obtain both information and parts. Not sure what you mean by dealers and have no clue in what part of the USA or world in which the appliance is located.

Read the manufacturers online web site for product information, problem possibilities, causes, solving methods, part locations, disassembly, reassembly methods, repair procedures, pictorials, schematics, downloadable repair and or owners manuals, which may be available online.
