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.
We are installing a Kenmore LP stove right now and it FLAMING up!!! The technition has checked and rechecked the oven!! Why dont they just change the oven before they deliver it!!! Not like we arent paying enough for it!!!! UGH!!!

If you've converted your Maytag oven to LP (propane) and you're experiencing issues with the oven and broiler not receiving propane and not producing a flame, there could be a few possible causes:
Gas supply: Ensure that the propane supply to the oven is turned on and the gas valve is fully open. Check that the propane tank is properly connected and that there is sufficient propane in the tank. If the tank is low or empty, it may need to be refilled.
Incorrect conversion: Double-check that the conversion from natural gas to LP was done correctly. Verify that the conversion orifices have been installed in the correct locations and that the air adjustment shutters or plates have been adjusted according to the manufacturer's instructions. Improper conversion can result in inadequate gas flow and a lack of flame.
Clogged orifices: It's possible that the orifices, which control the flow of gas, have become clogged with debris or residue during the conversion process. Clean the orifices using a small brush or a compressed air canister specifically designed for cleaning gas orifices.
Gas pressure: LP gas operates at a higher pressure than natural gas. Ensure that the pressure regulator on the oven has been adjusted or replaced to accommodate LP gas. If the regulator is not properly set for LP gas, it may not deliver the correct pressure for proper combustion.
Faulty ignition system: If the oven and broiler are glowing but not producing a flame, there may be an issue with the ignition system. Check the igniter for any signs of damage or wear. A faulty igniter may not generate enough heat to ignite the propane. Consider replacing the igniter if necessary.
If you've checked these potential issues and the problem persists, it may be best to contact a qualified appliance technician or the manufacturer's customer support for further assistance. They can provide specific troubleshooting steps or arrange for a service visit to diagnose and resolve the issue with your Maytag oven.
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.
In most cases the orifices can be removed and reversed to convert from lp to natural gas. Sometimes you will need a conversion kit and you will need to look this up by model number. 465 is the oven capacity not the model number. You can locate the model number by pulling the drawer out and looking behind it. Please let me know the model and I can let you know what kit you need. Also I should let you know that your gas company is the most qualified to convert your range, and this conversion should not be attempted by anyone who is not qualified. If this conversion is not completed properly you could be risking your life and the lives of everyone in your home, so make sure you know what you are doing!! Or get a qualified person. Good luck and please be careful making any changes to your gas appliances. Please dont forget to rate me also.
With the gas turned OFF, you will need to find the gas regulator on the range. It will located in the back of the oven along the bottom somewhere. It's usually a square shaped valve with a nut on top of it. The gas valve orifice is located under the nut. All you need to do is remove the nut, take the orifice out, flip the orifice over and re-install to convert from one type of gas to the other. It should be marked which side is LP (propane) and which side is for Natural Gas. LP will have a smaller orifice opening than Natural. You will want to make sure the orifice size you are using is facing UP, then screw the nut back on the regulator. You will also have to do this for all the surface burners (if you haven't done so already). You will know if you have the orifice turned the wrong way because the flames will be too high, the oven will get way too hot and there will be soot everywhere. Hope this helps you.
Did you change the orifice in the regulator? The orifice opening for LP is a different diameter than the opening for Natural Gas. If you've already attempted changing the settings from Natural to LP, you may want to double check the orifice under the regulator cap, or...you may have a regulator problem. You will need to turn the gas off prior to attempting this. The regulator will be located in the back of the oven somewhere near where the gas line connects to the stove. There is a gas orifice that needs to be turned over to change gas settings. "LP" should be present if it is set correctly. Let me know if this helps.
