Question about Kenmore 79012 / 79014 / 79019 Gas Kitchen Range
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.

You are on the right lines nat gas works on a lower pressure to lpg
nat gas 3.5 inches wc lpg is 11 wc you adjust the air untill the flame is stable and no yellow in the flame
