"MicaBay" Did all the sensor bar cleaning etc first.


I looked here for the manual and do you think I could find it? No. Found it today though. Now I have a place to start.

Thanks everyone. I'm going to consider this closed for now. I'm going to break down now and finally be put in that gas line within a couple weeks to start testing the proper way.

If the range top burners have a good flame, I'm going to guess the previous owner had LP.  A classic install SNAFU is to only convert the range top burners to LP which involves switching out the provided orifices.  The oven burner has to be adjusted for LP and is often overlooked.  That would also explain why the wife didn't like the range.

That's a possibility. Ill check the orifice size for the oven jets to see what's there. It's been a while since I did this type of work. Used to drill them out or silver solder them in and drill smaller

Hi Thirsty


It is set up as a Nat Gas.

The flames on the top seem OK. A little orange at the tips but I expect that with the use of the propane.


The oven could be called a flame thrower. So you would be saying then that that is the expected result of running any Nat Gas appliance through an LP gas setup?

Could be that the customers wife didn't actually see a problem, just didn't like the way gas stoves work.

In Topic: D/D Tranny knocking "What Part needed" ?

Brothers Scott and Willie speak the truth.


The direct drive trans tooling was getting very worn toward the end of its production.  For financial reasons (the VMW was being developed and the LEAP/Design 2000 being phased out due to energy star requirements) the tooling was not brought back into spec.  They continued to build trannys for current production and to stockpile service replacements.  


To compound the noise issues, the sheet metal gauge on the cab "wrapper" was cost reduced and is much thinner.  The base was also cost reduced.  This translates into a noisier machine.

Thanks Thirsty.


I agree most of these have some knock and I will let them go but some are so loud that I know if I sell it the machine a customer will be calling me back with a complaint of ."there is definitely something wrong", "get here and fix this" I have a machine here in my shop that's probably Last off the line and the knocking is quite loud. Looks like I'll have to set it aside and wait for an older washer that needs scrapping out for some other reason and use that tranny. Dontcha love progress!
