Converting GE XL 44 Gas range from propane to natuiral gas
I have a GE XL44 Profile gas range I want to convert from Propane to natural gas. I have the 4 natural gas burner orifices and have read the blurb on converting, 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?

Hotpoint supplies the orifices and instructions with each range for converting. It is just that it is hidden, they attach it to the gas regulator. The regulator is near the bottom back typically. Here is a cut out from your use and care manual.
CONVERTING TO LP GAS (or converting back to natural gas from LP) This range leaves the factory set for use with natural gas. If you want to convert to LP gas, the conversion must be performed by a qualified LP gas installer. The conversion instructions and LP orifices can be found attached to the range next to the pressure regulator. Keep these instructions and the orifices in case you want to convert back to natural gas.
The kit is located at the rear of the range right near the gas valve, there are probably 5 spuds and an extender for the large burner, directions are with the range. For the bake and broil you will need to tighten the brass orifice nuts down as tight as possible, also the brass nut on the gas valve needs to be reversed your local LP dealer should be able to do this for you if you are uncomfortable doing it yourself.
