kenmore elite gas orifices

I purchased a used 790.75503 201 and now that it is connected to natural gas, the burners all have a very small flame. I am suspecting that this unit was used with propane. The seller did not indicate which fuel was used. I have removed one of the orifices on a "power" burner and it has little numbers stamped on it. On one side it says "L" and there is a "101" on the other side. Can you tell me if this is an LP gas orifice or a nat. gas orifice?

Also, there are 4 different nat.gas orifices available on parts direct

Do you know why there are 4 models? Are the different models for the simmer burner and/or power burners? There are two standard burners, two power burners, and one simmer burner.

We need help determining which orifices to buy if we have the wrong ones. Please reply.

I know how important it is to have the proper amount of flame on a range so that you can cook your food evenly. While yo are waiting for your expert answer, I am adding a link below in where you can enter your appliance model number and a parts list diagram will pop up to help you with your question. I am also adding a link in where you can set up service. I hope my links are useful.
