Roper Gas Stove

I have a Roper 24' gas range that was set up for LP and now on nat. gas. The issue at hand is everything works but the oven and brolier. The broiler will light but has very small fire, almost none. In oven settings the pilot does not even enlarge to light the burner and there is no gas comming to the burner. Would this be only needing to adjust the orfice at the valve or something more? It is a pilot light stove.

The Lord keeps blessing me and I keep letting Him.

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

Have you turned the ovens pilot setting to the "NAT" gas setting?

The screw to do so is under the oven/broiler temperature knob. Pull off the temp knob and look on the body of the thermostat to the right or left side of the stem. Use a flashlight and find the set screw with the markings "NAT" or "N" and "LP."

Turn the set screw on the thermostats body to "NAT" or "N." Doing so will convert it to the present fuel being used. This will set the pilot(s) to the correct flame size.

If you have not done the above, do so.

Did you adjust and/or replace the oven/broiler orifices?

If not, do so. Some ovens and/or broilers only need an orifice adjustment while others must have the orifices replaced. Check the owners manual or service manual. Lack of such, ask at the local appliance parts stores.

Retail parts dealers and appliances parts stores can also help determine what the possible problem may be based upon that specific brand and model. Bring the make, model and serial numbers. Dealers and appliances parts stores are listed in the phone book.

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

Cautionary Reminder Note:
Before attempting any repairs, be sure to unplug the appliance from the wall receptacle power source first.
