I understand that you want to convert your Natural Gas unit to LP (Propane) gas you will need to purchase a conversion kit. Please give me about an hour or so and I will locate it and the instructions to convert.
There should be a set of orifices for each burner as well as the oven and broiler. When the unit was converted to propane, these orifices should have been replaced and the ones for gas put in with the conversion kit installation information. The kit should have been reattached near the pressure regulator.
If the kit was missing the orifices, then, yes, you are missing pieces. Check with your coworker if the conversion kit was missing. If you have the kit, it can be easily done by any appliance installer (or repair person) licensed for handling NG. (At least on our range, the conversion kit installation was straight forward. Every orifice was clearly labeled with the labels different for each burner and for the gas/LP kits (ABCD (NG) vs MNOP (LP)) .) The regulator is the only part that switched for LP or NG without the kit.
As I recall, the only tools we needed for the top burners were a small wrench (10 mm) and a small flat blade screwdriver. Remove one orifice and put in the appropriate replacement. Then adjust the burners so that they didn't blow out when the oven was opened or quickly turned from high to low (for the simmer burner). The oven and broiler took a bit longer. Several screws had to be removed to get at the orifices. Then the air flow had to be adjusted for the incoming gas.
I hope this helps.

It's probably not quite as easy as everyone says. Most gas appliances use a different control valve for LP (propane) and natural gas. You most likely will have to eplace the control valve with an LP one. I would contact Amana to see if they offer a conversion kit -- it would probably come with detailed instructions.
....and I quote, "IMPORTANT:Your cooktop is factory-set for use with natural gas. If you wish to use L.P. Gas, an L.P. Gas Conversion Kit is included with your new range. Models with the TripleTier™ Flame Burner will include a TripleTier™ L.P. Gas Conversion Kit and a kit for standard ranges. See “Installation Instructions” for details on making this conversion. 2. Obtain the kit. This is more difficult than actually doing the conversion. Unless you have a dealer nearby, I'd simply call Kitchenaid directly: (1.800.461.5681)They will either send it to you directly (quite possibly for FREE) or point you in the right direction. 3. The kit will come with instructions, but briefly, here's what you're getting into:The kit will consist of 1-3 orifices. These will reduce the amount of flow going to the burner(s). Why? Two reasons: a) Propane burns hotter and b) Propane moves quicker than N.G. You might need: Allan Keys, Screwdrivers, Channel Locks, Adjustable Wrench. You'll just disassemble the manifold, install the orifice(s), and GO! Good Luck.
2. Provide an adequate gas supply.
This unit is pre-set to operate on 4" natural gas manifold
pressure. Aconvertible pressure regulator is connected to the
manifold and MUST be connected inseries with the gas supply
line. If the LP/Propane conversion kit has been used, follow
instructions provided with the kit for converting the pressure
regulator to LP/Propane use. The LP kit can be found on the
back side of the range (some models).
I yours does not have the kit on back go to sears to get one.
