Conversion of a Kenmore gas range from natural gas to LP. Shall we have to adjust the the air flow to oven and range. Once we convert the gas valve, the flame in the oven is too high. Is there any orifice in the oven or all the orifices are for rane only.

That is a set of LP (Propane) orifice spuds. You will need the natural gas orifice spuds. There is a chart in my first response above that has the natural gas orifice sizes that you need. A local gas supplier or appliance parts store may have these orifices available. The Sears PartsDirect.com website has the burners with orifices if you cannot find them separately. Let me know if you need more help with this conversion.

I bought and installed these, thinking they were the correct set to convert it back to natural gas. appliancezone.com/ShowProduct.aspx?ID=22829

Maybe they're the Propane set? I didn't see anything either way in the description.

Make sure that the pressure regulator was properly converted back to the natural gas position (Step 3 in the first image provided at the top of this thread). If the pressure regulator was properly converted, then make sure that the correct orifices were installed on the burners. These tips may help you resolve this problem. Don't hesitate to ask more questions until we get this resolved. We are always glad to help.

Thanks again Lyle.

(Hopefully) last question about this stove. Three of the burners on the stove top won't light themselves. We have to use a BBQ Lighter.

Once they are lit, the flame in when set to the "High" position is not very hot. Takes quite a while to boil a small pot of water (abnormally long).

It sounds like you are describing the cook top lockout relay and control valve. The first image below shows that system at the top of the wiring diagram. The second image provides the procedure from your owner's manual for disabling that cook top lockout. That cook top lockout will normally be enabled after any loss of electrical power to the range. See if you can disable that feature so that the cook top burners will work. I provided a link for the full owner's manual below this response in case you need it. If you cannot disable that cook top lockout, then you may need to replace some components. Reply with additional details if you need more help.

Thanks Lyle - that worked!

Mostly.

The oven & broiler light and heat just fine, but gas won't come out of the stove top. I followed the gas line back and found that gas comes out of the main regulator where 2 hoses come out (oven and stove top. Then I followed the stove top line to another mini-regulator/sensor plugged into a yellow and white wire. The gas comes out of the line just fine before the sensor but not after. Any ideas on how to fix this?

It looks like the white wire goes into the head unit and the yellow wire runs to a sealed fuse box attached to the bottom on the back of the stove.

NOTE: The conversion to natural gas should be completed by a qualified installer.

I provided the procedure for converting this range to natural gas in the image below. It is also in the installation guide. Here is a link for that manual:

Installation Guide

.

If you did not save the natural gas orifices, you can order new ones from the

Sears PartsDirect

website.

If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.

If you need a qualified installer, I recommend that you contact your local gas supplier. You may also be able to find a service provider that can convert that range on the ServiceLive.com website. Here is a link for that site:

When making some major adjustments on a range I know how important it is to have detailed information to make the project much easier. While you are waiting for your expert answer, I suggest you add to the thread of this question and include the full model number of your appliance so that the expert can provide you with a more detailed answer. I did manage to find a link that will provide you with some great information to help with your question. I hope my link is useful.
