Question about Kitchen Ranges
I bought a used kenmore gas range, not used much. I use propane and it was set up for natural gas. We swithed it over to lp, and closed the hoods on the coaxles but the flame is still too big. What else can we do to fix this?

greg, sounds like your needle valve is not seated. Remove the bottom drawer. Look back to the base of the burner where the shutter air adjustment is. Right under there is the valve which should have a 1/2 inch or 7/16 nut. (I Forgot what size). Turn this nut clockwise until the flame is adjusted to the correct size, should be a nice blue flame. The nut maybe hard to turn because you are seating the needle. Catriver..post back

Yes, the orifice will is in the center of each burner and will unscrew. Make sure new orifices get installed in the correct burner or it won't work properly. I think you will use a 6mm nut driver to unscrew the orifices. Can use a ratchet and socket also.

The manifold needs to be cleaned and adjusted could have rust etc in it Not a good thing to do yourself unless you know what you are doing

Your Tappan dealer can help you with this. You have a good named unit so it shouldn't be a problem. You could also check with your gas company as to where to get the conversion parts.
