Question from propane to gas switch back

Hello, this is a GE Stove JGBS09PEH1WW 4burners, centergriddle, oven and no broiler. Flame is tiny it was set for propane.

Is a flame going to appear while set for propane?
And to switch back to NG (natural gas) need any new parts or I think I'm to switch over the burner tower and the piece with the whole in it (orifice? jet?) unscrew and turn upside down?
It does not appear complicated I just would like to know first before attempting because it is gas.
Thank You Very Much

Hello seekknowledge. Welcome to the Gas Appliances topic and the Do-It-Yourself Web Site.

What has to be done is a conversion to propane from natural gas. Which means all the existing burner orifices have to be replaced with propane orifices. The oven temperature knob has to be pulled off and the set screw set to the NAT settings. And the appliance regulator has to be converted also.

Later model stoves have regulators that are convertible. It's simply a matter of turning over the tower cap on the regulator. Some appliance regulators have levers to change positions or set screws that have to be turned from one position to another. Look for the letter markings, "LP" or "Nat." Older stoves that do not have convertible regulators, the entire regulator must be replaced.

Retail appliance parts dealers can also help determine what the possible problem may be also. They will need the make, model an serial numbers. Appliance parts dealers are an excellent source for original replacement parts. Dealers are listed in the phone book under appliances.
