Question Orifice
Model Number: SF302 BSKWO   Brand: Whirlpool   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


My nane is, Chet . We were given a Whirlpool gas cooking range. We were told it's set-up for natural gas, and we use propane. The problem is, the top does NOT lift up, and I can't check to see how to change the orifice to make it for propane gas. You can't see it or anything from the back. Can you help me to solve this problem??

Any help would be appreciated.

Chet,

Have you purchased the top burner orifice kit ?

You'll need it,

Part number: AP3128976

Part number: AP3128976


Here are the basic conversion instructions for your range:

L.P. GAS CONVERSION
The range is manufactured for use with natural gas. To convert the range for use with L.P. gas, perform the following steps.
1. Turn off the gas and electrical supplies to the range.
2. Remove the broiler drawer from the range. To do this, open the drawer as far as it will go, lift the front to disengage the rollers, and pull it forward.
3. Raise the cooktop and prop it up (see
page 3-2 for the procedure).
NOTE: The conversion cap has NAT stamped
on one side (see the photo below on the left),
and L.P. inside the hollow end on the other side
(see the photo on the right).
4. To convert the gas distribution valve:
a)Use a large screwdriver and turn the conversion cap on the gas distribution valve to disengage the pins from the slots.
b)Remove the cap, turn it over so the L.P. side is facing up, and reinstall it on the valve.
NOTE: The L.P. orifices are supplied in a bag
with the written material. When you remove
the natural gas orifices, store them in the L.P.
orifice bag in case you need them later on.
5. To convert the gas valves:
a)Remove the burner venturi from the gas valves (see step 6 on page 3-4).
b)Use a 3/8˝ socket and remove the natural gas orifices from the gas valves.
c) Install the L.P. gas orifices on the gas valves.


6.
To convert the oven burner:
a)Remove the oven burner from over the orifice.
b)Use a 1/2˝ socket and turn the oven burner orifice hood clockwise until it is snug (approximately 2-1/2-turns).
DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN THE ORIFICE.
The burner flame cannot be properly adjusted if this conversion is not made.

7. Reassemble the range.
FOR RANGES WITH PILOT LIGHT
1. To convert a range that uses a pilot light ignition system:
a)Remove the front panel.
b)Turn the thermostat screw so that the pin is pointing at the L position.
2. If it is necessary to adjust the cooktop pilot flame:
a)Raise the cooktop.
b)Turn the cooktop pilot flame adjustment screw to obtain the best flame. The flame should have a solid blue cone with a lighter blue inner flame.

RAISING THE COOKTOP
CAUTION:


When you work on the gas range,

be careful when handling the sheet metal parts.
Sharp edges may be present, and you can cut
yourself if you are not careful.
1. Turn off the gas and electrical power going to the range.
2. Remove the grates and keep-warm rack from the cooktop.
3. Lift the four burner caps and burner bases off the burners and the spark ignitors.
4. Remove the mounting screw from each of the four burners.
5. Lift the front of the cooktop and unsnap it from the two clips, then raise the cooktop and prop it up.


Good Luck,
