Yes. the orifice has a tiny hole in it.It is located at the tip of the pilot before the flame, and at the tip of the injectors. Natural gas and propane molecules are different sizes in the vapor state. The orifice regulates how much vapor comes out. You need to change the orifice in the pilot and the burner injectors for it to work properly. If you don't you will get a very large flame or a very small one, depending which way convert from. If you have the papers from the company that made the heater, they should be able to help you changer over. You also may need to make some adjustment if you are at high altitude, 2,000' or more, as the air is thinner (less oxygen) so the regulator needs to be set to higher volume.

SOURCE: gas convertion
stoves have a pressure regulator as the flex line from the house connects to the stove, it's about 2 inches by 3 inches in dimension and it has a knot in the middle and one to the side of it that is to the front of it that second one you can unscrew and put that knot the other way or upside down, that's the position for natural gas, now some regulators do not have it, in that case get one that can do that,or that is for lp and natural gas. then you must close the air a little bit on all the burners the vent is located as the burner meets the valve that supplies gas to the burners. and that vent is part of the burner.

I'm not sure what you mean by a proper efficient flame. I just recently went through an experience I'll relate to you here. I purchased a GE Profile dual fuel range. I can get more specific if you'd like but here's the point. The highest burner on the range was rated at 17000 BTU's. A friend recommended the range to me and sang it's praises. I took delivery of my new toy and couldn't wait to get a pot on the stove to start cooking a long wait for pasta. Twenty minutes later I was finally seeing bubbles! I spilled the water out and measured 12 cups of water into the pasta pot at room temperature. That's three quarts of water. 20 minutes to see bubbles and never would it come to the expected "rolling boil". My experience has always been with electric ranges and I am new to gas but 20 minutes? Something had to be wrong, right? Wrong! Much research later I've found it is common for natural gas to LP conversion stoves to lose a good deal of their oumph when converted. GE as it turns out is one of the most notorious for a serious degredation in BTU output. After exploring GE's site I found that this same stove running under LP gas is rated(for the highest burner) at 11000 BTU's! No wonder I couldn't boil water! Back to the store it went and I am still in search of a stove that will meet my needs. Don't know if this will help you or if this is the same issue you are dealing with but maybe just maybe. Good luck!
