My range now burns propane and I need to convert it to burn natural gas.

Pati O. for Model Number JGR8850

ANSWER Hi Patti. Shut the gas off and remove power. The top orifice/ tube assy. for the left side is part # 5787M053-60. The right side is part # 5787M052-60. They have both front and back orifice's per side. The bake orifice (as well as the broil orifice) hood need to be lifted up from bottom out (lp) setting 1-1/2 - 2 turns to adjust to natural setting. Then flip the pressure regulator cap over and place the dust cap exactly as it was in the threads so the cap will show the "nat." side when you lift the cap to quickly tell later if it is set correctly. Adjust the bake /broil air shutters so no flame lift off occurs . And as Little as yellow flame at the tips as possible. Place a pan filled 1/2 way full on the burner and let the burner warm up. On the lowest setting, the flame should barely cap over the burner top. If needed you can insert a very long thin flat blade screwdriver in the knob stem and adjust the burner flame this way. You will need to hold the stem gently with pliers if necessary. Thank You.
