Question about Kenmore Kitchen Ranges
Kenmore 36" gas cooktop Model #911.33213101 I have purchased the required replacement LP gas orifice spuds. It appears that the burner bases can not be removed from the top, they are held in by the ignitors. I do not see any access to change the orifice spuds from the top. Before I remove the cooktop and disassemble it from the bottom, am I missing something ? What is the correct procedure. Thanks, Jerry

I had success with the conversion. The directions are very cryptic, but it can be done, without the professional emptying your wallet, for 5 minutes worth of work. No adjustments needed on the air shutters, once they are wide open. The orifices are the pain-in-the-a$$es. You need some small tools to get to them, or chance dropping them under the top....which wasn't fun. Oh...and watch which orifice goes where...there are 3 sizes. So, short version, change orifices, open shutters, and flip regulator setting from NG to LG. Orifices take the longest time. ~ sjDIY

GE ships gas ranges set for natural gas, with the LP orifices included, usually on a metal tab held with one screw right near the regulator (where the gas connects to the range). If the range was converted to LP, the person who did the conversion was suppose to put the natural gas orifices back in that holder. If they are missing, comment back on the exact model number and I can look up the part number(s) for you.

I just converted mine and the regulator plug was not the same as the one in the manual. It had a black plastic piece snapped into the cap that had to be turned over for LP. I unsnapped it and turned it over. I changed the nipples for the burners and they worked great. The oven orifice had to be turned all the way down (clockwise) ans the air damper opened.
When I did all this the oven still had a large yellow and blue flame. I raised the oven orifice up 2 turns and then turned it down all the way and the oven flame was perfect! The oven orifice is hard to turn so make sure that you turn it all the way down using a 1/2 inch wrench.
