I have the opportunity to purchase a new Wolf Range - 60" Dual

Customer Question

I have the opportunity to purchase a new Wolf Range - 60" Dual Fuel Model DF604CF. This range is in a model home and has never been used. The problem is that it is set up for natural gas. Can it be converted to propane? If so, what does that typically cost, and is there any drawback to retrofitting a natural gas range to propane?

I just confirmed with Wolf that there is no conversion kit for the DF604CF. My serial number is and can only be natural gas. I just cannot believe that Wolf would sell a $16k range without the ability to convert it, but they did.

Despite what Wolf says, is there any way to find out whether there is a work around? Isn't it merely the nozzle, or are there other parts of the range that will not work with propane?

Wow , I'm very surprised by that. there is a regulator on these that if you can convert it the regulator has to be turned over to propane , its like a cap that reduces the pressure. the nozzles (orifices) would also have to be changed. if they don't make them I guess you can do it. you can try talking to a local appliance tech and see if theres something they can find to change it over. thats why I said call wolf, they do strange things sometimes , this is one of those cases I guess. sorry, Bryan
