i did and I am getting the impression that they only go from natural gas to propane not the other way around like i am hopeing....although u would think w/ natural gas being "newer" and more effiencient....that this would be more evedent? any more ideas....ps thanks for your help

Lobbie:

Most companies will have a conversion kit and instructions to go from natural gas to propane. That's almost certainly because the product comes stock from the factory to operate on natural gas. So, the only conversion kit necessary is one that will convert to propane.

What you need to do is contact the company and ask where you can download the instructions to convert to propane off their web site, and then work backward through them, along with your friendly local appliance parts store, to order the original parts that were replaced when someone converted that stove to work on propane. That is, you simply need to reverse the conversion instructions. But, unless you have them, you need to order the original parts for the stove that were replaced when it was converted from natural gas to propane.

some stoves have a pocket on the back where the converted orafices are stored.if the oven is gas its just a matter of adjusting the regulator for the burner & broiler.:furious:

Did you figure it out? I just picked up a Dovre that is natural gas and I need to convert to propane. Maybe we could swap parts? I know your posting is a little old, and you could just let me know what worked for you.

Thanks
