The pilot adjustment screw is located on the back side of the oven temperature thermostat. Lift the cook top to access it. Use a flat screwdriver to adjust... counter clockwise= bigger flame.

If you adjust the toggle type mini lever to a lower pressure so that the flame is just under licking up through the bottom of the oven and then adjust the air mixture to eliminate all but about an inch of yellow flame it should get rid of the soot.

You want to be sure that the flame is not pulling away from the middle bar where the gas comes out ( a little pull away is ok) and that there is not too much yellow flame. Find the happy medium and you should be good to go.

You may have to adjust the lever and the air mixture a few times before you get it right.

To adjust the air mixture you will need to remove the cover plate at the bottom towards the back, then loosen (no need to remove it) the one phillips head screw holding the air mixture cover in place. adjust the air mixture by moving the cover left or right letting in more air or restricting the flow of air more.

BE CAREFUL, to determine if the mixture is right you will have to turn on the oven bruner and everything will be hot. Wear protective clothing and BE CAREFUL to not burn yourself.

You can find a manual for this model by searching google for "ge xl44 manual". It was the first return when I did the search.
Here is a link http://products.geappliances.com/ProdContent/Dispatcher?REQUEST=ITEMID&itemid=003678171 if they leave it, otherwise you will have to search for it yourself. They explain how to adjust the air mixture in this pdf on pages 35 - 38.

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.

How do I convert a Winrich Perfecta 1800 from LP to nat gas


You need to get natural gas orifices for each burner and the oven. These are the brass metering devices connected to each burner gas valve . Same for the oven. They are removable with a wrench.

I have a garland h283 i want to convert to nat gas from lp what is the orrafice diameter? I would like to drill the lp oriffice out. Also do i need new pilots?


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)

Brown TM210-4 kitchen range... how do i switch from LP Gas to Nat. Gas on this model? Is it just a regulator adjustment? or do i have to change the orifices as well?


Both. If this is a sealed top range, then you will have to change out the orifices and flip the cap on the regulator. If this is an open top style range (the top lifts up around the burners) then the orifices need to be adjusted and the regulator cap flipped. The oven/broiler orifices will also need to be changed or adjusted, depending on which kind they have. Some older models also require converting the oven thermostat from LP to natural gas (and vice versa) by turning the screw to the correct marked setting. If you have your owner's manual, it explains the conversion in it. If not we may be able to find it online for you to download. Douglas

Mod jgp328wec2ww changed orifices from nat to lp. Burners not getting hot enough. It took 12 min to bring 1 qt to boiling and not rooling. how is this adjusted?


Please tell us everything you did to convert your stovetop/oven to LP? Beside swapping the natural gas orifices for LP orifices, did you also switch the appliance regulator over to LP? When you put in the orifices did you match up the proper size ones to each different size burner according to your owner's manual? They have #'s stamped on them to identify them and some are even color coded. Were you having any similar issues with your previous stove? If so, it may be a pressure problem. I can help you solve this problem with a little more information. Douglas

Where do all orifices go on anything gas? Right there where the burner meets gas valve. The air shutter sits right in front of the orifice for proper air to gas ratio right.Go out and look at yer gas grill. Where the burners meet the gas valve ye shall find the orifice.

Converting aan LP oven to gas


In most cases the pressure regulator has to be changed or adjusted. The orfices on each burner, oven, broiler and surface burner may need to be changed also. Sometimes they can be adjusted. Sometimes the threads on the pipe are different also. This is to prevent accidental connection to the wrong fuel. The big difference is the gas pressure. LP is usually around 10 - 12 lbs and natural gas is usually around 3 lbs. Properly adjusted you will like natural gas much better than LP as it is slightly hotter. The information will be in the instruction book and also on the Jenn air web site. Whirlpool owns both Maytag and Jenn aire so check all sites. The conversion kit is usually less than $50.
