Randy 43 :

Customer:

Customer:

Stove has been in storage for 3 years. Moved from country to town. orifice has been lost in the move. need to know how to get new ones and how to install them

Randy 43 :

ok , this is the part number for the orifices , you need to swap them over on each burner ,lift the cap off and then the burner itself (2 screws) then you will see the orifice , you take the LP ones out and screw in the NAt gas orificices, next you need to change over the cap on the gas regulator ,there is a white cap on there, pull that off and switch over the cap ,it will usually say LP or Nat ,once the orifices are changed over and the regulator ,check the burner flames ,they are usually 1/2 " off the burner ,mostly blue flame ,here is a picture of the gas regulator ,remove storage drawer to access ,and rear of oven
