Also Replacement of the orifice hoods on the bake& broil and top burner orifices. Hope you can give me some answers! Thank You in Advance! Craig
    Hi,

    I am trying to convert this stove back to nat gas. I am having trouble finding the parts I need to do this
    Should have been put on the back of the range. Range comes NG ready and when we convert to LP the old parts we take off are put back into a baggie or such and attached to the back of the range for future use. Maybe Maytag can fax or email a copy if yours is missing?

    I also have a question on what an orifice hood is and what it does.
    Orifice hood has the small hole that reguates the amount of gas that will flow through. Some are adjustable by screwing them in or out.

Now back to the original Question where can I get the Natural Gas orifices for this stove, and at this point I guess I need 6. 4 for the top and 2 for the Bake& broil burners. Thanks Craig ctp0503@AOL.com

    They do not show available on the parts breakdowns. Manual says they should be kept for future use. May need to call Maytag to see if thye have the part#'s of the surface orifices. You only need 4, oven burners are adjustable and not replaced. Surface is replaced. I will attempt to send the manual in the email.
