Need to change burner nozzle orifices and regulator, go to plumbing store (not home depot) a real plumbing supply store with make and model and they should help you. And just to make sure go to another and see what see they say( compare invoices and knowledge) not an easy job if your new.
You should be able to go to Lowe's or Home Depot and ask them if they have a LP conversion kit. They should be pretty much universal...however, you need the installation booklet and/or the owner's manual. There should be a diagram in the book that tells you what size orafice goes where...If you really want to insure that you have the correct orafices for your model specific unit, contact the Mfr. and they should be able to give you all of the correct info.
the burner orfices will have to be changed ans pressure reg / some have either /or reg / just turn lever to the fuel you are using . but always change the orfices to gas or lp . blk is lp copper nat gas .. you can probably do it with out the instructions it's very simple .. if the other set of orfice's are not in or on range then order them for your model . ..mm
There should be a thermocouple (a small, thin copper rod) going through the pilot's flame. that may be coated with debris or has become defective. Gas utilities should only be serviced by licenced/trained technicians. there are a few safeties in place to protect the appliance and you.
GE ships gas ranges set for natural gas, with the LP orifices included, usually on a metal tab held with one screw right near the regulator (where the gas connects to the range). If the range was converted to LP, the person who did the conversion was suppose to put the natural gas orifices back in that holder. If they are missing, comment back on the exact model number and I can look up the part number(s) for you.
