SOURCE: Bradford White hot water heater - burner lights only 30 seconds

The slightly warm water makes me think of a thermostat problem. The fact that the heater is 10 years old I wonder how hard your water is. Calcium build up kills water heaters. But the yellow flame you mention could be the results of dirty orfices. May want to have a Pro look at that.

SOURCE: WHAT SIZE HOLE IN JET ON HOT WATER HEATER TO

That doesnt work with these units they are manufactured gas specific. The manifold plate would need to be changed as well as notification to Noritz to have a new serial # issued. PC board reprogram required, etc. Buy a natural gas or LP model.

Can you convert a natural gas rc80i n waterheater to propane


Contact manufacturer.
Generally the answer is probably no, especially if you have a family, children, dog and neighbors.

Propane burns Hotter and has more pressure than natural gas.
Burner must be more robust cast iron.
Orifices must be changed to accommodate different gas.
Different gas control valve needed.
In some cases there are dip switch changes for type of gas and altitude above sea level ... the higher the elevation, the hotter gas burns.

Here is expected result from changing NG to LP.
But your good luck might lead to less volatile result

Need conversion of lp to propane on a Bradford 50 gallon hot water.......


1) Do you mean NG natural gas to propane?

2) Most companies do not support gas-type conversion, especially with modern FVIR-compliant heaters. New burner, gas control are required at minimum.

3) Contact Bradford White and include model number, serial number that appear on label on side of unit.

Rheem 300170 HWS service manual


1) Rheem does not post service manuals.
Call Rheem and ask why, since the other big manufacturers, AO Smith and Bradford White do post service manuals.

2) You need new propane gas control valve, and matching combustion parts to fit existing tank.

http://waterheatertimer.org/images/IMG_1826-LP-burner-450.jpg

3) Rheem does not recommend changing gas type, especially from natural gas to LPG.
LPG is higher pressure, and burns much hotter and requires cast iron burner, unlike the lighter-weight metal used for Natural gas burner.
The manifold tube and thermocouple must match the gas control valve, and gas-type and have correct thread for propane.
The combustion chamber and heat transfer surface can also be heavier metal for propane heaters.

Change orfis in water heater


Do NOT do that.
If you put LP gas to NG heater you can cause explosion.
Contact manufacturer and see if they sell conversion kit. Most do not.
