Question about Kitchen Ranges
I have a model 790.78733406 gas range that has been converted to LP. I lost the instructions in a recent move (although I didn't do the conversion in the first place) and need to convert the oven burner\broiler back to natural gas. The stove top isn't a problem, just oven.
Just bought a Kenmore and did this conversion myself. You do not change the oven nozzle (jets) but have to wrench it down with a 1/2" wrench as per instructions. After I did this the falme was high as you described. I wrenched it down further and adjusted the air shuttle and it was fine. The brioler is done the same. The wrench adjustment is tight so be aware.

I have a Thermadore 6 burner gas cooktop PCG366E purchased January 08. I purchased the LP conversion kit, they only make one kit for all models. The instructions included with the kit were written for an older model and have not been updated by Thermador. The gas regulator is located next to gas inlet pipe. You have to get at it from above. Remove the 2 star burners over that side of the cooktop. You will need a 20mm socket to remove the nut at the center of the star burner. Lift it off and disconnect the wire to the ignitor ( You need to push on the spring lock in order to seperate the the connector terminal). Remove the stainless steel pan and then remove the metal pan underneath ( you will need a Torxs bit for this screw or vise grips). You should now see the regulator. At the top of the regulator is a cap with the letters NG visible. Twist this a 1/4 turn ccw, lift up and turn over to expose the letters LP reinsert. The regulator is now ready. You will need to replace the orifice tips at each burner. Use a 7mm socket with an extension. Put a piece of tape in the socket to hold the orifice in place while you insert it. You also need to adjust the valves. You must pull off the knobs and and remove the trim bezel. If you look through the screw hole on the right you will see a screw head (bypass screw). Insert long skinny flat blade screwdriver through the hole and turn the screw CW all the way (about 1/4 to 1/2 turn in my case). My cooktop had two burners with a low simmer feature, This devise is located in front of the bypass screw. It has a hole in it but does not align well with the head of the bypass screw and makes it difficult to turn the scew. Thats it, I hope this info has been helpful. I have not yet connected the propane therefore have not tested the unit but it should work.

I had success with the conversion. The directions are very cryptic, but it can be done, without the professional emptying your wallet, for 5 minutes worth of work. No adjustments needed on the air shutters, once they are wide open. The orifices are the pain-in-the-a$$es. You need some small tools to get to them, or chance dropping them under the top....which wasn't fun. Oh...and watch which orifice goes where...there are 3 sizes. So, short version, change orifices, open shutters, and flip regulator setting from NG to LG. Orifices take the longest time. ~ sjDIY

SOURCE: Convert natural gas stove to LP
Nothing is imposible but this stove was not made to be converted. It is a not a classic crank down and flip model. Your best bet would be to get your LP gas supplier to do it.
