How do I convert this range from lp to natural gas.
To change the unit from LP to natural you will need 2 of part number WB28K10022 Medium orifice for the Left front and left rear burners, 1 part number WB28K10029 small orifice for the right rear and 1 of part number WB28K10030 Large orifice for the Right front burner. For the oven burners you will turn the orifices approximately 2 1/2 turns counter clockwise. Close off the air shutters and flip the regulator cap to NAt.
my burners and broilers works fine. the problem is the oven does not heat up at all.
Answer Carol, Like most gas operated ranges, the most likely issue is the oven bake burner igniter WB2X9154. especially when all the other burners operate properly. A weak or broken igniter, will not allow the oven burner to open and ignite the gas to bake. The igniter needs to produce a 2.5 to 3.0 amp draw (round igniter) to open the safety valve, and ignite.
How do I change the gas regulator (WB19K10001) to natural gas from propane?
Answer Hello Joel. Unscrew the large brass nut and flip it from LP to natural gas.
No gas will ignite with normal ingnition. If I try to light a top burner with a match a very small uneven flame will light. I think it is a regulator problem.
Answer Hi. Without a manometer part # TJ45506 to measure the gas amount on a burner orifice then it will be an educated guess at this point. Did you recently have any gas appliance repair recently? Do all the other house gas appliances work OK? Throttle the shut of valve a few times to see if there is any internal debris momentarily clogging the pressure regulator part # WB19K10001. Turn the ON/OFF lever on the pressure regulator to see if it is partially open. Tap on the pressure regulator while the top burner is working to see any positive change. Make sure all orifice's and burner pilot holes are clear to accept the fuel pressure. Thank You.
The stove works fine the problem is on broil. When you light the broiler the flames go from one side of the bake compartment to the other. When you open the oven door the flames shoot out the front and have even melted the knobs. It worked fine the last time we used it. I suspect the pressure regulator, but I need an expert opinion. Thanks, Clyde
Answer Hello Clyde,
Since I'm not there to assess the situation first hand, I have to recommend the replacement of the burner and the thermostat. Gas is a very touchy thing to work with as everything has to be in very tight tolerance. If you still notice an issue after these parts are replaced, you should contact your utility board who provides your gas and have them check the pressure to the unit. Of course they will know, but they need to check the pressure at the appliance which places the pressure test after the gas pressure regulator at the tank/meter. The pressure regulator on the appliance regulates pressure for the surface burners also. Since you mentioned no issue with the surface burners, it cannot be part of the issue.
i have this regulator, and the red on/off pin came off, but the pin is NOT broken. How do you get this back on? how do they do it at the factory? or how does a repair man do it if they knock it off like a noob home-owner?
Answer Brian, If you look really close and the red lever, You'll probably find a cracked or missing segment on the lever, near the opening for the pin that holds the lever to the shut off shaft. If you're lucky and nothing is broken or cracked, you will need to extend the shaft out with a pair of needle nose pliers, until you can align the holes in the lever to the hole in the shaft, then insert the roll pin through the opening until it protrudes at both ends. Good Luck and Thanks
