How to Convert a Whirlpool Oven to LP Gas

Save

Whirlpool automatic gas ovens are manufactured to use natural gas to produce heat. They can be modified to use liquid petroleum, or LP gas, also known as propane. Many Whirlpool gas ovens are sold with LP gas conversion kits. If your model did not come with a kit, or if it is no longer available, you will need to obtain one to convert your oven. LP gas requires higher pressure than natural gas to work properly.

Things You'll Need

  • 5/8-inch metric wrench
  • Disconnect the power cord from the electrical outlet. Turn off the gas supply leading to the oven.

  • Slide out the storage drawer at the base of the Whirlpool oven. Lift the drawer up and away from the oven to remove it.

  • Pull off the plastic cover over the gas pressure regulator cap at the back of the storage drawer compartment.

  • Place the metric wrench over the gas pressure regulator cap. Twist the cap counter-clockwise to remove it.

  • Turn the regulator cap over so it is facing the opposite direction. Replace the cap inside the regular assembly.

  • Twist the gas pressure regulator cap clockwise to tighten it. Replace the plastic cover over the regulator cap.

  • Replace the storage drawer. Turn the gas supply back on. Plug the electrical cord back into the socket.
