I converted my maytag gas range over to LP, the stove come with the five jets for the surface burners. The oven was never mentioned and so I teid to use it. The flames from the burner filled the oven. Is there an adjustment for the oven? What do I need to do?

Most gas ranges that can be converted between LP and natural gas include an orifice kit usually located by the gas connection and regulator. Some ranges cannot be converted. I doubt you will be able to find any documentation that tells you the size of the required orifices. Remember that there is an orifice for each of the surface burners as well for the oven and broiler burner(s)
Your conversion jets are usually located beneath the hinge area or the back panel on that stove and are mounted on a plate which holds all of the LP jets in a row. there is no need to buy a conversion kit, since it is already supplied. The jets mount on the burner control itself as it enters the gas flow tube, and the oven jet mounts just before the large burner under the plate in your oven area. Just remove that large oven floor plate and you will see it.
u would need an lp kit some of the ranges came with the unit check the unit pull the drawer out and check below maybe taped to frame or chcek the rear backside for some orfices, u are gonna have to replace the orfices on the top burners.. also if its gas oven the same will be required by flipping the cap to the regulator and making some adjustments inside as well..... hope this help
Turn off the gas supply. Locate the gas valve regulator. Unscrew the top cap on the regulator,turn it over and re-install it.It should be marked NAT. LP.When correctly converted you will be able to read LP. On the Performa all the conversion parts should just be adjustments. Remove the oven racks,remove the oven base pan,remove the oven flame spreader pan to access the safety valve. Take a 1/2 inch open end wrench and tighten the orifice on top of the gas safety valve. Tighten it until it is snug.Remove the top burners and raise the top to access the surface gas valves.Tighten the valve spuds until snug. Re-assemble all parts.Turn the gas back on and lite the burners. Turn them high and low to make sure they stay lit. If any burner is not right tighten or loosen the orifice spud for that burner only. All air shutter adjustments should be full open,
Unless Jenn-air has a conversion kit. (highly doubt this) It would be a serious undertaking to switch out 2 burners for LP use. Gas tubes, igniters, electronics, regulator, gas jets. Not to mention the modifications changes needed to the stove top to make all this work. That gas regulator has to go somewhere and piping from tank/regulator/burners.
Not saying it can't be done mind you. But think about it long and hard before committing to this job. Small gas leak can become a huge headache later.
If on LP, you may need to change the jets on the burners on top. Most times, when oven and broiler work and top doesn't, and you have spark, your jets are wrong size. Look on back of unit for a cardboard attached to unit, should have jets stuck to cardboard, if notgo to store where you bought unit and buy jets.
Natural Gas has a pressure at about 1/4oz psi. Propane runs at a much higher pressure 8 psi to 15 psi. For your safety do not use the oven until it is garenteed that the oven is rated for LP Gas!
