Propane to Natural Gas Conversion
on the regulator there is a 1/2" nut, made of aluminum. loosen the nut, thur it around and screw it back in, there is a "NAT" on one side, and a "LP" on the other side, make sure the "LP" is facing out if you are using propane, and "NAT", if you are using Natural Gas. Very simple, all you need is a 1/2" wrench, or a small adjustable wrench,

Dacor gas range igniter clicking
I did have the same problem after the house keeping people done with cleaning. They used window/surface cleaner. First I asked them not to clean the ignitor with any cleaner. Here is what I did to solve the problem
I took scotch scour pad (one that you use for washing dishes), In dry state I polished ignitor switch. It is abrading the residuals and deposits on the top and polishing it. Don't use any thing more abrasive than that. MAGIC - I don't have any more problem.

Hi I am trying to convert my Dacor stove/oven from
Hi, to convert from NG to LP is easier in some ways but harder in others. The pressure part is easy because LP runs at the same pressure that comes into the house so the regulator is normally locked wide open to allow a direct by-pass. You could just as easily remove the regulator and plumb straight in from the houseline. You don't say what model but usually the sealed cooktop burners will need smaller orifices and the oven and broiler orifices are adjustable. If that is the case, the oven and broiler orifices can be tightened until they bottom out which be the correct output for LP. You would need to remove the cooktop orifices and find replacements which are correct for LP, these are non-brand specific. Honestly, if you go to repairclinic.com and enter the brand and model number, I'd be surprised if you couldn't find the conversion kit. Even the Dacor site should be helpful. I found many different kits available at the repairclinic.com site even without a model number. Best of luck.

We recently remodeled our ktich
I googled the problem to make sure I remembered how they worked.The only problem that would cause regulator leak is improper adjustment on a brand new one if the pressure is too high.It also talks about the spring which helps regulate the gas may lose its springiness,after several years though.There are numerous safety measures to stop the gas from coming out if you have a pilot light and it goes out which I did already know.I also know that NEVER will a regulator just simply release the gas into the air from overpressure.That would not even be allowed by anyone in the entire industry.Also,when your drawer is closed,then you open it,do you get a little whiff of gas?Natural gas(is that what you have?) does not have an odor in it's natural state.After it is drawn,a chemical is added so you can smell it and tell if there is a leak.If the odor is very minimal,it may just be the pilot burning if you have one.I would say it would likely be consistent if there was even the smallest of leaks.I used to repair gas appliances however...I was born with no sense of smell.I am including a link to you so that you can learn a little more about gas regulation.Also,I would be persistenet with your plumber and ask him to come over and do a checkup,and just tell him you are very worried about the situation since it could have obviously dangerous results,and it will give you peace of mind.They should do it for free,they better.Tell him you just want him to come over and make a quick gas reading.Hope this helps you out.If you have any questions about what you are reading,I know how all that stuff works,is designed,or whatever.
Just comment to this post and I will get an auto link.
Good luck! Greg
