Adjusting the flames

Flame on cooktop burners
When converting your range from LP gas to Natural gas, you will
need to adjust some components to get the best performance from
your appliance.
The valves with solid rod (see image on the right) have to be
adjusted for the conversion from gas LP to natural gas. Please
contact a qualified Whirlpool technician for this fix.
Oven Burner Flame
The first time the oven burner is turned on or when the range is converted from LP gas
to Natural gas it is possible that you will need to adjust the height of the oven burner
flame. Follow these steps:
1. Check the range is cold and all the cooktop burners are in the OFF position.
Remove the shelf on the bottom of the oven. Grab the shelf from both sides on the
back part, (see image on the right) pull out and remove.
