Question about GE Profile Spectra JGBP90 Gas Kitchen Range

2002 GE XL44 converting from LP to Nat Gas

I changed the orifices for all (4) burners and the main regulator. All the burners work, but I can't get the oven or broiler to work. The instructions to convert the oven said to turn the lower burner orifice hood counter clockwise with a 1/2" wrench until it's snug. It seemed as if I had to make a few rotations till it bacame snug (I thought it would only take a partial turn). I then adjusted the air shutter as instructed. The oven won't work- the ignitor glows, but the oven won't light. I'm thinking there is more to converting the oven than what I did, or I did it incorrect.
The broiler orifice is froze and won't move with a 1/2" wrench, but I'm not worried about the broiler unless it's a simple and cheap repair.
Can you please give me detail instructions on converting the oven and broiler on this stove?

Mod jgp328wec2ww changed orifices from nat to lp. Burners not getting hot enough. It took 12 min to bring 1 qt to boiling and not rooling. how is this adjusted?


Please tell us everything you did to convert your stovetop/oven to LP? Beside swapping the natural gas orifices for LP orifices, did you also switch the appliance regulator over to LP? When you put in the orifices did you match up the proper size ones to each different size burner according to your owner's manual? They have #'s stamped on them to identify them and some are even color coded. Were you having any similar issues with your previous stove? If so, it may be a pressure problem. I can help you solve this problem with a little more information. Douglas

I have purchase 2 used FMP 40BSS fryers - originally Nat Gas - i want to convert them to LP - what is needed and can i do it myself?


To convert these to LP you must downsize the burner orifices and the pilot orifice. Also you must change the regulator on the gas valve to LP. Easy job.

I have a GE XL44 and i need to change it over to lp. none of the orifices for LP are with the stove. Where can i get them and what do i need to do with the oven?


Repairclinc.com has LP orifice spuds listed for about $1.80 a piece. The item number is 1263006. Appliancepartspros.com also has them listed for about $1.63 a piece. The part number is AP3994353. You need to purchase one for each surface burner.

As for the oven. Turn the gas supply off and locate the pressure regulator. Remove the cap on the regulator and remove the orifice fitting inside. Flip the orifice over and reinsert it. Place the cap back on the regulator and it is now ready for LP use.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

LP is higher in pressure than NG, so regulator spring pressure has to be greater.

GE XL44 heating issue


I have not seen a regulator issue on a gas range, other than if one was not converted when Nat to LP gas (or vise versa) was done. At this point a repair person may have to be called to use a manometer to check gas pressures. They will check pressure at the oven burner orifice with at least one top burner on. The range does not have more than one burner setting. It's either on or off. For this issue, you may have the best luck contacting your gas supplier.

Converting aan LP oven to gas


In most cases the pressure regulator has to be changed or adjusted. The orfices on each burner, oven, broiler and surface burner may need to be changed also. Sometimes they can be adjusted. Sometimes the threads on the pipe are different also. This is to prevent accidental connection to the wrong fuel. The big difference is the gas pressure. LP is usually around 10 - 12 lbs and natural gas is usually around 3 lbs. Properly adjusted you will like natural gas much better than LP as it is slightly hotter. The information will be in the instruction book and also on the Jenn air web site. Whirlpool owns both Maytag and Jenn aire so check all sites. The conversion kit is usually less than $50.
