Hi All,

Found this forum while looking for answers on the web. I have a new Frigidaire Gallery series GCRG3038ADA gas range/oven. I converted from NG to LP by following multiple tutorials showing how to flip the “button” on the regulator while re-using the plastic cap as washer, adjusting both the broil and oven nuts, and changing out the burner orifices to proper spec for LP. The result is close but not quite what I was expecting. The biggest issue is asymmetrical flame from the two 9500 btu burners (front left, and center). The front left is short blue on left side and long on right side with yellow tips. The center is short blue on front, long on back side with yellow tips. The asymmetry is not subtle and was noted by the gas company guys who did my hookups. They fiddled with the burner caps thinking they were off center but no dice. I tried swapping the burners as well after they left but the asymmetry persisted. Oddly, the assymetry stayed in the location on stove top instead of following the burners when swapped. Any way the orifice is somehow off-center or angled in the burner hole? If it is, it’s not visible to the naked eye.

Secondary issue is that all burners seem a bit aggressive compared to what I am used to. Not LP on a NG orifice agressive, but generally I need to run a burner at 3/4 capacity to get the flame to look like what I am used to. I am not aware of any way to adjust this aside from the individual burner valves and I adjusted those to maintain minimum flame so can’t turn down lower for risk of flame out.

Oven works fine BTW. Stuck a probe on it while burning off newness and drifted from low 340’s to mid 360’s when set at 350*.


Hoping someone here can point me in the right direction.

Hi, If you can make a video of these burner flames with your phone, then upload it to our site or upload to Youtube and link the video here, or use Gdrive or Dropbox and share the video here, that would help us to see what's going on.

Sorry don’t have vid while on the road. I did capture these two pics earlier though. When I get home will grab a vid and post it.

Yes, that does look odd.

What is the LP kit part number they gave you?

This is the correct LP Conversion kit for your model:

Yes, same kit as shown above. I used 093 white for both 9500btu burners. Even pulled one and reinstalled after I noticed the issue just to be sure. See vid and attached pic.

Yes, it seems you did it properly.

Here's the video of the BTU chart and LP sizes they should be:

To follow up on this;

I ended swapping in some spare 093 white orifices for the 9500btu burners to replace the existing 093’s and it seems to have fixed the problem. It both reduced overall output a touch and improved the symmetry of the flame pattern. Guessing either the QC on tolerances for those orifices are a bit loose in general or that was just a bad batch.
