    Default Gas to propane converted 36" oven/range

    I purchased a 36" DCS, I believe the model number is RGU 366-N. I purchased the propane conversion kit and had it installed by a plumber contracted through the propane supplier. I believe the plumber installed the propane kit improperly. When the over is turned on, there are mini explosions when the gas ignites, with a loud whoomp sound. I was present when the plumber installed the replacement orifices for the burners. I was not present when he worked on the oven conversion. I'm pretty certain it's not supposed to work this way.

    Clarke, the proper thing to do would be to contact the installer as soon as possible and have them correct the issue. We advise that you shut the gas supply to the range off and do not use the appliance until it has been properly converted. Due to liability concerns we will not and cannot provide advice on gas appliances other than what we have responded to here.
    Thank you for allowing us to serve you!
