Question

Hope someone can help.
I ordered a new kitchen stove yesterday. We have LP gas to our current stove, when I installed it 25 years ago, it was already set up for LP gas. The new one apparently is set for Natural Gas, and the salesman said I didn't need a conversion kit, but that it could be easily converted over to LP.
Does anyone have any idea how to do it? It's a New Frigidare Professional Series sealed burner gas top and electric convection oven drop in stove. Thanks

Hi:simonmeridew

As my friend Smokey would say:
BULL BISCUITS! hahaha
The salesman isn't correct.
The stove needs to be converted.

Since the appliance is brand new, have them come out and set it up for LP.

The only part on the stove that has a flip over lever is the oven thermostat. The top burner orfices need to be changed and the cap on the appliance regulator needs to be flipped over.

You may want to check the owners manual for instructions. Some brands supply the needed orfices for the top burners.

Good Luck,

Thumbs up

Hi Tom:
Thanks for your reply.
The oven is electric so no problem there. I'll see what comes with the gas burners as far as instructions, but thanks for the heads up on the orifices and regulator. I may have another question for you next week when the stove gets here.
Thanks again.
