Convert Kenmore 790 from LP to Natural

I recently purchased a used Kenmore 79078663602 range. Was told it was natural gas but turned out to be LP. I ordered the new Orifices for the burners, chaged the regulator to NG. My question today is about the broiler and oven burners, I'm assuming there's adjustment to make there I'm just not sure how much of an adjustment though.

I read on another page for converting from ng to lp that you use a 1/2" wrench and tighten the orifice going clockwise til snug, but now since I'm going from lp to ng I know I need to obviously go counter-clockwise, but how much of a turn? 1/4, 1/2, full turn? Another adjustment that I saw that was made was the Air Shutter. There are no marking on this Sears P.O.S., so how do I know if this needs adjusting and if it does how much of an opening do I need for air? Thanks in advance.

The conversion manual that came with my 790 specifies 2.5 turns (approximately) from the LP setting to the NG setting.

I have a Sears Kenmore Elite 790 hooked up to propane .. is it ok to have it hooked up to propane or is this over for natural gas only?


Kenmore Gas ranges can be used with Natural gas or Lp. They come from the factory set up for Natural gas so if you want to use Lp it needs to be converted by you or your gas company. There are several adjustments that have to be made and some ranges require orifices to be changed. Your installation manual tells how to convert it but if you're not sure about doing it you would be better off the call the gas man.

Need to convert from natural gas to LP. How?


I converted a gas range several years ago, and all that was required was that I had to 'seat' all of the orfices - or tighten them down so that they are completely seated (do not overtighten!). It has been working great for years!

Converting a GE Profile Gas Range from LP to natural gas


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.

Converting a range from LP to Natural gas


Yes, it is possible.

You have to get the right orifice's for Natural gas. LP gas orifice has twice the size hole as compared to Natural Gas. Using it without the right orifice will put out way too much gas, and you will burn everything, as well as it will be a fire hazard.

Your local gas company or propane company should be able to get you the right orifice
