You want bigger holes for natural gas and smaller holes fer LP. It ain't rocket science.

Since it sounds like this is a extremely easy question for you guys, could you let me know what part number I need to order to get the correct, female orifices for natural gas for JDS98600AA*?

Thanks in advance

But they are male whereas the LP conversion orifices are female!

Have you looked to see what you have in there now.

I took a quick look at the diagram for JDS9860AAP and if you have what you are calling female orifices you linked to that I quoted above then I believe you have the adjustable orifices.

That means you can turn them out a couple turns to adjust them back to natural gas.
There is also a cap on the regulator that will need to be flipped over to convert the regulator back to natural gas too.

Someone can correct me if I'm wrong, but if you have the adjustable orifices like I think then there is not going to be a part number for any type of orifice kit, LP or natural for this model range.

Dear Whirlpool tech,

Yes, I have looked at what is in there now, and they are the LP conversion female orifices shown at the following link:
http://www.partselect.com/PS2083799-Whirlpool-74006097-LP-CONVERS.htm?SourceCode=5&ModelNum=jds9860


The way these parts screw onto the range, it doesn't seem like they are ajdustable.  Another reason I have been guessing they are not adjustable, is because the similar 9860BDP model also indicates that different orifices are needed.  However, it is worth a try adjusting them like you said.

Another idea is that maybe I just remove these orifices entirely to convert back to natural gas!  There might be another limiting orifice within the range, which might be the male one that I linked to in an earlier message.  This does not agree with the 9860BDP model service manual, but maybe this is different.

Does anyone have access to the password protected servicematters site, to download the 9860AAP service manual or LP conversion guide?  This would probably answer all of our questions, including whether they are adjustable or not, and if not, what part number the NG orifices are.

The orifices are not adjustable. If you have a regulator on the range, unscrew the top port where you see "N" turn it upside down so you see "LP". Most of the time that will take care of the surface burners without replacing the orifices.

Like Rick says, the part you ar posting is the classic crank down and flip type. So you do not need to buy these. Video:

I have the tech sheet but it's too large to attach. I have the service manual if you need it. It shows the regulator conversion on the last page. Tech sheet: 16026780 Service manual: 16022089

OK great thanks.  This information is very helpful.

Just for future reference for other people:

Technical reference document 16026780 describes the JDS9860AAP model and the parts.  It also describes switching between LP and NG.  The technical reference document says to refer to the service manual 16022089 for detailed installation, operating, testing, troubleshooting, and disassembly instructions.  This service manual also describes switching between LP and NG.

Here is the answer! Had the same issue and had a heck of a time finding it. Jenn-Air customer service was useless.

The service manual and install instructions can be currently found at:

http://www.abt.com/product/20134/Jenn-Air-JDS9860AAP.html

The range originally came with two orifices #53 (0.0520 inch diameter) on the left side under the grill and two orifices #55 (0.0595 inch diameter) on the right side under the sealed burners. Jenn-Air does not sell these sizes. Can not be found

When you look up replacement parts online you will find part number 74009472
You will need to purchase 4 of these.

What is not widely publicized and even Jenn-Air customer service seems not to realize is that this replacement is a #54 orifice. They split the difference.

The rest of the conversion instructions are located in the install instruction on page 15 (inverting the regulator cap and adjusting the flame).

Good luck and pass this info on!
