I have a Hardwick gas stove that was given to me. I would like to have it converted from natural gas to lp.  The problem is the serial number has faded off of the tag located in the burner area.  The manufacturer (now Maytag) tells me they have no way to convert the continuous serial number (still readable) to a model number, but that the stove was manufactured in 1986.  The continuous serial number is 468485RJ.  The model number appears to be .....U4291 with the number of leading missing characters unknown.  I would appreciate it if anyone can help identify what model the stove is.  It is a 30" wide, white 4-burner with oven, free standing stove.  It has electronic ignition with a button for it on the right side of the burner knob panel.

If they know the year of manufacture, ask them to give you the model number of *any* Hardwick gas range made that year-- the conversion will be the same for all of them.

It sounded like a good idea, but the manufacturer tells me they have no way to pull up any model numbers of stoves that were manufactured in 1986.  It seems that my only hope is that someone with a serial number ending with the letters "RJ" tell me what model number they have.  The "RJ" apparently identifies the stove as being manufactured in June of 1986.  The name on the front  panel of the stove is  "Hardwick" with "Century Series" under it.

This being a 1986 range it should be very basic and not need any parts to do the conversion.

And with all electronic ignition on the surface burners and more then likely a hot surface/glow bar ignitor for the oven, no pilot burner adjustments should be needed.

The regulator would need to be converted, which usually just requires removing the large nut/cap on top and turning it over or turning the inner plastic plug the opposite way, I have no way of knowing what style regulator you have.

The oven and surface burners should just need to have the oriface hoods closed down so that the center metered spud is the only gas that comes thru and slight air adjustments on the air shutters.

If you don't know what you're doing, you really shouldn't be messing with doing the conversion, any reputable repair shop should be able to accomplish this task without any problems without having the model and serial #'s.

Thank you.  You were right on.  I took the stove in to a local appliance repair shop and they were able to convert it without any additional parts.
