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?

Changed maxitrol regulator to lp to much pressure


If you only changed the gas regulator for use with LP (the regulator located at the connection of the gas service) then you still need to change the orifices for all burners, top and oven. Of course I assume this model can be converted for use with LP. Some models cannot. A new range that can be converted for LP typically includes the needed LP orifices. A card with the LP orifices is typically located at the gas regulator.

I have a garland h283 i want to convert to nat gas from lp what is the orrafice diameter? I would like to drill the lp oriffice out. Also do i need new pilots?


Most gas ranges that can be converted between LP and natural gas include an orifice kit usually located by the gas connection and regulator. Some ranges cannot be converted. I doubt you will be able to find any documentation that tells you the size of the required orifices. Remember that there is an orifice for each of the surface burners as well for the oven and broiler burner(s)

Brown TM210-4 kitchen range... how do i switch from LP Gas to Nat. Gas on this model? Is it just a regulator adjustment? or do i have to change the orifices as well?


Both. If this is a sealed top range, then you will have to change out the orifices and flip the cap on the regulator. If this is an open top style range (the top lifts up around the burners) then the orifices need to be adjusted and the regulator cap flipped. The oven/broiler orifices will also need to be changed or adjusted, depending on which kind they have. Some older models also require converting the oven thermostat from LP to natural gas (and vice versa) by turning the screw to the correct marked setting. If you have your owner's manual, it explains the conversion in it. If not we may be able to find it online for you to download. Douglas

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.

Installed stove, no flames on burners?


It may still have air in the system, turn on one burner on and allow the gas to flow with a lighter in the path of the gas see if the gas lights of at least explodes I mean until it goes Poof, once it does that if it does not light then pull the top off the stove and adjust the vents on the pipes to focus the flames and how much air is blended in with the gas, also turn the burner so that the holes are half way open, I am not sue about your stove but most have an adjustment by turning the burner 1/4 of a turn to change the flame characteristics. if this does not help post here and I will see what else I can find out on your stove. I need the modle of the stove and the regulator number where the gas hooks up.
