Converting gas stove to propane ???

Greeting everyone!

We picked up a sweet little apartment size 50s gas stove this week. Need to convert it to use in the flying cloud. We know that we will need a regulator but is there anything else that we need to do to convert to propane?

Thanks, Lynn

You will need to change the jet (that is if it was running on Natural Gas before) -- LPG and CNG use different sized jets. Your local propane dealer should be able to fix you up.

Lynn,

What brand did you pick up? Did you see my picture of the Brown stove (make not color) we picked up last week? How about a picture.

LP and natural gas operate at slightly different pressures. Your stove will have to be adjusted to operate on LP pressure along with the different jet. The appliance guy that re-jets your stove should be able to adjust the regulator for the LP as well, if needed.

Lightbulb Try this ...

cloud55,

Try this site: CLICK HERE

Their # is: 1-888-895-1535. Call them & see what they can do for you.

I had difficulty finding any gas company willing to convert a Natural gas dryer to Propane. They also would not sell me the parts for the conversion. I bought the required parts from this site.

Thank you Abra! That is a great site. I even found the long lost knob for our never used trash compactor there.

Look around for a tag that says the BTU rating for the stove or figure out how hot you want to go,As the jet size will control that. Most will need 5 jets oven and four burner's . Some newer stoves have adjustable jet's and regulator's web page http://www.premierrange.com/faq-rangeconversion.htm. Regulator on stove will be bypassed or removed most likely as there is no adjustment to the old ones. The bottle regulator will set the pressure for the trailer system on trailer they are the change over style mounted by the bottles. Have done a few old stoves for outdoor kitchens feeble brain thinks smaller jet and more psi going form Nat. gas to propane if you have a Turkey fryer or bbq set up with a hose to the bottle you can use that to test out and adjust stuff out side of the trailer
