The safety valve makes sure that no gas is released until the igniter gets enough power to ignite the gas range and the regulator is a valve that automatically cuts off the flow of a liquid or gas at a certain pressure.
This part works with the following brands: GE, Hotpoint & Kenmore.
Remove the warming drawer entirely. Remove all five nuts securing the valve and regulator assembly. Loosen (do not remove the nuts entirely) the burner assembly itself to give some wiggle room above the valve and regulator assembly. Also remove the single screw that holds the "collar" in place just above the gas outlet that services the oven burner. This should provide the margin of room you need to remove the valve and regulator assembly because it's a tight space. Working entirely in this cramped space (the warming drawer) will take time and patience. Don't drop any screws because you might create a whole load of more work for yourself. Loosen the brass nuts holding the gas lines in place. Then you have to maneovre the old equipment out. Just reverse all the steps to install the new equipment. Apply Harvey's to the brass nuts and re-attach the gas lines BEFORE you firmly attach the equipment using the five nuts. Don't tighten the brass parts all the way, just hand tight at first. Re-attach the equipment using the five nuts, then tighten up the brass parts with a wrench. Don't over tighten. Re-secure the screws that hold the burner in place. Then test the equipment. If all good, wait for the oven to cool, then do a final check that all the screws are firmly in place. Voila.

I turned the gas off and disconnected the stove & unplugged it from electricity. Pulled the stove out & removed the part. I ordered the regulator from PartSelect and it arrived promptly in 2 days. I replaced the Kit-Valve & Regulator with no problem. I changed the orfice jet from natural gas to butane. It works well.
