Question Converting old gas stove to propane

Hello, I am sure somewhere along the way this has been answered but can't find where. We have an antique gas stove from the 1930's that we would like to use in our vacation cabin. How hard is it to convert to propane for use on our property? Is it a matter of changing some fittings or is it much more complicated? If it is too difficult or dangerous to tackle ourselves, where should I call to have it done? We are moderate do it yourselfers but have never tackled anything like this, but are willing to learn....

Converting is usually no problem. In fact I've done dozens propane to natural. However any conversion should be done by someone who has experience. An old range may have the type of valves that you simply close down the orifices all the way for propane. I think I would advise you to call your propane supplier for help. They should have a service dept that does this all the time. A wrong adjustment could mean a real safety problem. Best of luck
