Hi all,
What a great site this is! Thanks for all the info and expertise available here! I bought an old Premier gas range for my cabin and I have a few questions I hope someone can help me with. Model 600, Serial # 5-74196
1. There is no regulator on this model. I assume I don't need one because I have two stage regulator at my tank. This tank provides propane to lights, space heater and this range. Is that right?
2 .The spec plate tells me all I need to do to convert to LP is turn the orifice hoods all the way in to reduce the gas flow. I've done this on all four burners and the oven burner. The spec plate also states that this unit was set for LP from the factory. But I see in the threads I've read that I should need to make an adjustment on the oven thermostat valve as well. I've looked everywhere on that thermostat and find nothing to change or adjust. The Thermostat is a Robertshaw Model BJ. So is there anything I need to do with this thermostat?
3. This range does not have any pilot light safety valve that I can see. Does it need one (or two), are they available, and does anyone have a link to a supplier and the model I need? I've searched a bit and can only find them for about 4X what I paid for the range. I'm not sure if I'm looking at the right thing.
I've uploaded several pics, hope that helps!
