    I have a GE XL44 Profile gas range I want to convert from Propane to natural gas. I get the jist of these instructions and I have the natural gas orifices, BUT:

    1) How do I get at the orifices in the stove that I have to change?

    2) Where is the regulartor in which I have to turn around the "plastic part"?

    3) What do I look for when adjusting the gas flow into the oven?

Step 6:
To prepare the new unit for LP gas you need to adjust several items. First you will need to replace the range orifices or spuds. These are individually sized with marks and colors.

Using a nut driver, loosen the old spud and replace with the new one.The trick to keeping from dropping the spud down inside the range is to use a small piece of aluminum foil between the driver and the spud. This should provide enough "grip".
If you do drop one down inside, you'll need torx wrenches to disassemble the burner units and get inside.

You will need to reverse the plastic pin in the regulator underneath the range. Remove the hex nut and flip the plastic pin and reassemble the nut.
Do not over tighten!
The last step is to open the air shutters on each burner as per directions included with the range conversion kit.

    Also, The orifices are stamped with a number that determines there size. The smallest # goes to the smallest burner, Largest # to largest burner and so on.

Changing stove from gas to lp do we need to open top of stove to do this?

Only if it is an open burner stove. Sealed burner stoves are converted without removing the top. Which do you have? Your owner's manual shows how to convert it. If you're missing the manual, tell us your stove make & exact model # and we'll see if it's available online to download. Douglas

Black is on the burners

the fuel to air mixture is set incorrectlty or your pressure at the ouitlet for the gas valve is too low.
you culd play around adjusting the first part of this but for the gas valve part you have to have a manaometer to check it out correctly. then it should be set at 10"wc. Good Luck

Replacement Parts For Vintage Magic Chef stove

You probably have a 1940's model of Magic Chef. Check for the model number under the lid of the cook top on the upper right hand side of the stove. It should have the model number and the serial number, too. You will need both. The Old Applicance Club run by Jack Santoro is the place to go along with a site called "Antique gas stoves"in Georgia. Good luck with the world of vintage stoves.

Because of the difference in energy between the two gases, the regulator is not all that needs changing.
I'm not sure which 'nozzles' you have but essentially all of the jets' one at each burner, at least one in the oven; probably two if your have a broiler element, need to be replaced.

It isn't a hard job but I suggest you speak to the manufacturer about re-jetting and where to order the parts you need.
