Best Answer

I would say it is impossible as they work completely differently.

For one thing there are no burner holes for gas on an electric stove! The control dials will have to be changed too. I just think it would not look very good sitting in a kitchen anywhere after it has been converted from one to the other. For all the time and effort I do not think it is worth it, it would be better to go buy a used one, and one other thing you might keep the hair on your head and face when you go to test fire the converted stove.
