It was my understanding when i bought this range it could be converted to LP. Well Jenn Air says no. All Jenn Air's other ranges (except the pro style) can be converted.  Is there anything i or the gas company can do to get around this?

They are correct. Unit is ordered as Natural or LP. Unit is not convertible because it has not passed testing. In other words you do not want to convert this unit. Anyone who tried to do it for you would be liable. It has been this way for a long time on this style unit. Selling dealer gave you some pretty $ misinformation.

The gas man says it might have all the adjustments/conversion already on the stove. They are suppose to come out and look.

It's kinda crazy they would build one that cannot be convertible. What if one wants to take a NP range to a part of the world where there is none?

I'm prepared for the worst news. I just hate to give up this stove. The poor guys at Sears feel real bad also, they have been misinformed also.

I'm not so sure I'd let Sears off the hook so easy. These units have never been UL approved for conversion. They are ordered in as LP or Natural. I checked the web site and it clearly states natural only. Maybe they can give you some sort of allowance since you did ask prior to purchasing it.

The are willing to take it back. But i don't want to give it back. My gas man is suppose to come by this coming week. He was told that you can turn one of the valves over from like a 22 to an 11? Does this make sense? He was also told there should be adjustments for the orifices also? I hope he is right? Thanks for keeping me straight, and replying.

Pegi is right, DO NOT convert this. You would void your warrenty, risk fire, risk your life, and your insurance company can refuse to pay for anything because the oven was altered in a way UL did not approve.

Send it back and pick a new one
