Question Convert a GE Profile Stove back to Natural Gas

I bought a gas GE Profile Stove that was returned to the store. The previous owner converted it to LP (liquid propane) and didn't put the NG (natural gas) parts back in the envelope on the back of the stove.

GE Parts recommended I buy a conversion kit to make it natural gas, but the kit I received was an LP conversion kit. This is essentially 6 orifice spuds to replace the 5 burners on the top and one in the oven.

Recently I found out they dont' make an NG conversion kit and you have to buy the parts separately. Furthermore, the spuds that I need to replace are no longer available by themselves. You have to purchase each orifice holder at about 7x the cost of the LP kit.

Does anyone know of a 3rd party that makes these replacement parts at a reasonable price or know of a shop that has the original NG spuds?

Hello johnml and Welcome to the Gas Appliances topic.

Suggestions:

Seller should provide parts, if you told them you wanted to convert the appliance back to Nat gas prior to purchase.

Store should be able to get the parts from the previous owner, since they bought the appliance from that party and likely have contact info.

Most retail appliance stores have the parts, since they sell to service companies that can be hired to make the conversion.

If you notice the ads to the right of the page, ads by google, there is an on line retailer that has conversion kits.

One more source to locate a conversion kit....

Call your gas co. They may do it for free. I've done many over the years and they may also.
