Joseph, Thanks, this unit appears to have fixed orifices for the oven and broiler instead of adjustable spuds as per the link. The diagram and assembly appear to match except for the oven/broiler.

The conversion of this range from LP to natural gas should be completed by a qualified installer.

The range should have been converted to LP using the kit part number 318186908. Those LP conversion instructions need to be reversed to convert the range back to natural gas. The instructions provided in that link for a previous answer are similar to the instructions for kit 318186908. If you have the instructions for kit 318186908 then you can have the installer reverse those instructions to convert the range back to natural gas. Although I do not have a copy of those instructions, I suspect that the instructions are the same as the ones provided in that link for a previous answer shown in the above response.

As you indicated, the stove top orifices will need to be switched from the LP to the original natural gas orifices. If you do not have those original orifices, you can order them from the Sears PartsDirect website.

The regulator needs to be switched back to natural gas.

The instructions for adjusting the bake and broiler burner orifice spuds appear to be valid. The oven burner orifice spuds will need to be backed off by turning them counter clockwise (left) about 2 1/2 turns to return them to the natural gas position. The bake burner spud that is on the top of the safety gas valve is shown in the image below. The spud is circled in red. The spud was likely tightened firmly down when the range was converted to LP gas. The installer will need to carefully back that spud off. The broil spud will also need to be adjusted.

If you need a qualified installer, you can contact your local gas provider. You may also be able to find a qualified installer at the ServiceLive.com website. Here is a link for that website: ServiceLive.com

I hope that this information helps. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details and we will try to assist you further.

Q:

How do I reset an F90 fault code on my range?

A:


I referred to the profile you created in the website and see that you have Kenmore gas range model number 790.36689502. Using this information, the F90 fault indicates that the maximum time allowed for oven door unlock was exceeded. The control attempted to unlock the door. The door lock motor or mechanism failed to unlock the door within the maximum amount of time it is allowed to be energized by the control board.

It is unlikely that you will be able to reset this fault code. You can try to completely disconnect electrical power and leave it off for 5 minutes. After reconnecting power, the fault code will probably reappear since the control will still detect that the oven door is locked. The only way to clear the fault code is to disassemble the range and repair or reset the oven door lock assembly. You will need a service technician to complete this repair.
