Replace orifice spuds on gas gooktop, from Natural to LP

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

SOURCE: Converting Kenmore gas range to LP???

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

SOURCE: Converting a GE Profile Gas Range from LP to natural gas

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.

SOURCE: Converting Kenmore gas range to LP???

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.

Conversion of Kenmore Elite Gas Range 790.7523 from Natural gas to propane.


each burner has a natural gas jet or (orifice) as you pull them out, one atb a time. You should be able to color coordinate them at that point. the jets will be at the end of each gas line right before the burner. and each burner gets one. I haven't seen the model you are referring to. but the ones i have changed out in the past, usually the hole is the same size for all the burners no matter the size of the burners. I hope this helps. good luck with it!

HOW TO CONVERT FROM NATURAL GAS T PROPANE


Their are 2 types of ranges. Ones with sealed burners and ones that do not have sealed burners. The sealed burner ranges must have a kit to replace the orifices. The none seal burner models are simply called crank down and flip models. That means you flip the screw on top of the regulator to where it reads LP. and then you tighten down the spuds on the top burners and the oven valve and then you adjust the air shutters.

Note: Some stoves with sealed burners cannot be converted to LP. The model number you posted is not a correct model number.

Natural gas orifice burners


Before you get too involved, check to see if the natural gas orifices are still with the range. Usually, when the conversion is done, the person who converts the range puts the original natural gas orifices into the holder which contained the LP ones, then replaces it. Look for an inch and a half long metal strip holding the four brass orifices held on by one screw very near the range gas regulator. (the regulator is the part the gas line connects to on the range) Also, look for the conversion instructions in the original installation and set up instructions, or attached to a sheet of paper on the back of the range. You will need to change the plunger in the regulator (Unscrew the cap, flip the plunger around, and replace) and turn the orifice spud on the bake and broiler burners three full turns counter-clockwise also. (using a 1/2 inch open end wrench, counting twelve 1/4 turns) Orifices will require a 7mm or 9/32 inch nut driver or socket to change. The orifices are different for the simmer, regular, and high output burners. (have a "I", "II" and "III" marked on them to help identify them, respectively.) The left two burners are both "regular output" burners, and use the same orifices.

Convert to LP (propane)


Contact Miele directly via their website. This would require an orifice change if it is possible for this appliance. Since natural gas, butane, and propane are all forms of LP (Liquified Petroleum), it is usually, but not always, possible.
