    Is there something special one must do to run a natural gas stove on propane?

    Nat.Gas and LP operate at differant pressures. You need to adjust the gas regulator and change the orifices. If it's relatively new, get the model and serial #'s and contact the maker for a kit. Or call a pro in.

    If you look on the back or under the cook top there should be a small envelope of the jets for the conversion as well as instructions .
    Its really not that hard to do . convertered our stove and frunace from NG to propane in about ten minutes .
    a screw driver channel locks and wrenches . the stove likely has a regulator inside as well that will need to be adjusted just follow the instructions .
    no yellow flame is the main rule

    Our first one just had little collars that needed to be pushed forwards and given an 1/4 turn. The newer one had orifices that had to be flipped over for the burners but the oven one was a little tricker - needed a 5mm socket is all I remember.
