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.

Conversion of Kenmore Elite Gas Range 790.7523 from Natural gas to propane.


each burner has a natural gas jet or (orifice) as you pull them out, one atb a time. You should be able to color coordinate them at that point. the jets will be at the end of each gas line right before the burner. and each burner gets one. I haven't seen the model you are referring to. but the ones i have changed out in the past, usually the hole is the same size for all the burners no matter the size of the burners. I hope this helps. good luck with it!

The range came setup for natural gas I want it set up for LP. The orifices that came with the LP conversion have different colors. How do I know what color goes where??Kenmore Range 790.7423


The LP orifices for the rangetop should all be identical to each other. It's possible that the LP orifices for the oven might be different from the rangetop ones.

Gas stove need to switch to propane


Hi,

Hotpoint supplies the orifices and instructions with each range for converting. It is just that it is hidden, they attach it to the gas regulator. The regulator is near the bottom back typically. Here is a cut out from your use and care manual.

CONVERTING TO LP GAS (or converting
back to natural gas from LP)
This range leaves the factory set for use with natural
gas. If you want to convert to LP gas, the conversion
must be performed by a qualified LP gas installer.
The conversion instructions and LP orifices can be found
attached to the range next to the pressure regulator.
Keep these instructions and the orifices in case you want
to convert back to natural gas.
