Converting an electric oven to propane


I have a beautiful upper and lower convection oven unit that was given to us, we can not use them because they are electric and where we live the electricity is very expensive. Where we live only propane gas is available. We need an oven despretaly can those ovens be changed from electric to propane, is there some kit to do so available?

I would guess.... no.

Even if there are "kits" available, I'd be very wary and do some serious checking before attempting anything like this.

Not going to happen. Wire the one you have now or start looking for a new stove.

Not a real world thing. You say electricity is expensive in the area, but how much electricity do you use in a year to operate an oven? Not that much.

Propane... AND electricity.
I'm willing to guarantee that your new home will have electricity.
