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.

How do I know orifice in right burner

This is kind of hard to answer, You need good eyes or a magnifying glass. Was the range converted from natural gas to LPG (propane) or reverse? Basically, the larger the burner, the larger the hole in the oriface. If in doubt, you can try swapping 2 of them. (Use a 5mm socket).

Why does Oven soot up during use?

Are you on propane (LPG) or natural gas? I would guess that you are on propane, and that your oven has not been converted over to LPG correctly. The regulator needs to be set up for LPG, and the oven gas orifaces need to be tightened down, and the air valves opened up. If you don't know what these terms mean, then you need to contact a professional, because you don't want to monkey around with gas!

Stove converted from natural gas to propane burners work fine but oven has about 8'' of yellow flame and comes up over diverter into oven. air shutter makes no difference full open or full close and...

The orifice, holes that the gas comes out to the burner)s) for the oven was not changed out.Gas is measured in inches, Natural gas runs abourt 5-7 inches of presure, Ppropane runs about 12-15 inches of pressure, much more. The orifices, holes that the gas comes out, for natural gas, are larger to send more gas to burner. With propane, the orifices are WAY smaller, because the pressure is much higher.

Switched from natural gas to propane now oven flames up sides how do I fix? Model#362.75571691

Propane and natural gas are two different fuels and require adjustments to the appliances to which theye are connected. Typically, when converting to propane from natural gas, a pressure regulator and a change in gas jets are required. This is because propane has a different heating value (hotter) and behaves differently.

Also, propane doesn't burn as cleanly as natural gas so after you have made the hardware changes, if you start to smell something in the kitchen, you may need to crack a window slightly to provide for better venting.

Please be careful

some ranges are adjusted on the unit, others you need to go to an appliance parts store and get them to order you a convervsion kit from ng to lp. the model you have given is incomplete i would need the rest to check this further for you. there should be a prefix ahead of the 468130 i.e. 110 - 468130??

Ge propane kitchen range changed to natural gas.can't get the ove

Hi, Did you flip the cap on top of the regulator? As far as adjusting the bake/broil orfices, all you will nee to do is turn them 2 full turns counter clockwise. Start the oven and watch the flame. It should have blue tips as much as possible.
You might have to raise or lower the orfice adjustment as needed.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

How to convert from natural gas to propane

All stoves in this country come from the factory with orifices designed to use natural gas. To switch over to propane, the orifices have to be changed over. Contact your propane provider and they will obtain the proper orifices for your range. They may even install them for free. good luck.

Propane coversion of kenmore 790 gas range

Most gas stoves are shipped for natural gas .You need to check the orifice on each burner to see if they are for natural gas or propane.If you ordered propane the stove should have been shipped with the orifices.They may be in a bag with your stove documents.
