Many antique gas stoves are made to run on natural gas (NG) and not propane, also known as liquid petroleum (LP). However, with the simple switch of the stove’s regulator you can change your antique stove to LP. The regulator automatically controls the amount of pressure that travels to the burner’s orifices so you don’t have to replace them when you switch from one form of gas to the other.
Things You'll Need
- Natural gas and propane regulator
Turn off the antique stove and move it away from the wall to get at the gas regulator in the back of it.
Turn the gas off and disconnect the stove from the gas supply.
Unscrew the old regulator, the square device the gas line is screwed into, and replace it with a new natural gas and propane regulator. Tighten the regulator in place with a wrench.
Loosen the screws in the cap of the new regulator and remove it. Turn the dial from “Natural Gas” to “LP.” Screw the cap back in place.
