Title: how do I change Orifices on Stove?
Post by: musicman on November 20, 2008, 12:58:05 PM
When I moved in the Frigidiare Stove Model FGFL77ABE stove had LP. I'm switching to Natural gas. I have the orifices.

do I need to take the top 2 screws above the orifices on the drip pan out to get the orifices out?

Thanks for any info.

Yes, as the image shows, the orifice nuts are underneath attached to part #11. (Unless you have a really long nut driver)  You might also need the LP Conversion Instructions (http://www.frigidaire.com/tip/servicecd/Content/LP%20Conversion%20Kits/316417506_en_sb10s_040729.pdf)

Thank you so much for the awesome information. I was having such trouble trying find good info until I found this site!

Tommorrow I change them. Wish I hadn't been in a pinch when I ordered the orifices I paid way too much for them!

I was able to get the orifices out after reading the instructions that I was sent for the conversion!

I'm so grateful for those instructions because I didn't even know how to do the oven burner and waist high burner and how to adjust the air for the flames. All set to go all I need now is the gas turned on tomorrow afternoon, hope there's no leaks in all the piping I ran (National Grid will be checking that when they tun the gas on)

Oh and I need  a very thin long flat head screwdriver to adjust the stove flame heights.
