NG orifices
« on: August 23, 2010, 09:43:41 AM »
A customer bought a returned floor model gas range from Sears. It had been comverted to LP.
The original NG orifices were discarded.
Oddly enough 2 of the orifices are NLA.
Large burner and center grill.
Anyone have any workable suggestions to get this range converted back to NG?

Model 790.79523600

You could get the orifices resized. To do so you would need to go 10 orifice drill bit sizes bigger. Since it is lp to nat all you gotta do is make em bigger right?

Yep. Bigger.
I would rather know the exact size and drill to those specs.

Take your orifice bit set out and find out what size the hole is by measuring it. Go 10 orifice bit sizes bigger. Nothing to it. I used to charge $5 per orifice to resize them.
