Switching from natural to lp gas

How do I switch from natural to lp gas? Gas nozzle is correct, but getting to much flame coming out and thru the exhaust. Guessing it is a regulator problem. Does it have to be replace or adjusted? If replaced, where do I get one? If adjusted, how? Thank You

When changing from one gas to another, not only do you change the orafice, you also need to replace spring in regulator. then you can do the water colunm test John

Re: switching from natural to lp gas

Hi, The gas jet is too large and the gas valve needs adapted for lp gas. Lp gas has more pressure so the jets are smaller. Any appliance parts store should have the kit needed to adapt the gas valve along with the jet. The valve pressure will also need to be adjusted using a cheap water column gage also available at the appliance parts store. Check with them on what the pressure needs to be in your area. If the regulator is part of the lp it should be set right. If it is part of the fryer, set up for natural gas, and there is no lp regulator, it will need to be adjusted and or replaced with an lp regulator. Gas companies are usually very helpful with such things because they are concerned about gas safety. Good luck.

SOURCE: Converting LP dryer back to Natural Gas

the gas dryer is one you need not have to change out the parts. just turn the orfice around, how and where? That would help.

Flames cominhg out of flue

Hi I use to repair every kind of restaurant equipment under the sun..maybe I can help...Is this a new install of the fryer and it never did this before, or did this just start do this..If a new install, the first thing I would check is the gas regulator and see if it is for Nat gas or Lp gas, and find that out..cause it has to match what you have, comming into the building..usuall the gas valve has a sticker on it that says what the water columbs are like for Nat it is like 3-6, and for Lp(propane) it is like 5-12. Ive seen customers buy a used fryer, and install a LP fryer in a Natural gas build, and the valve lets too much gas to the burners, and it will shoot flames out the top..then you would have to buy and convert a gas valve, or use parts to convert it..let me know further..

Does the Elite EFS-40 have a built in regulator?

Thanks for the Question! If you are referring to a internal Gas regulator this model comes with a option for Natural Gas or Propane.
So you will need to make sure that you have to correct gas connection for the Fryer. If you look at the Gas valave it will state whether it's NG (natural gas or LP liquified petroleum).
So if a NG valve it must be connected to Natural Gas. and Vise versa.
Installing a NG Fryer to propane will result in a dangerous situation because of the pressure difference.
If you are requesting information for a different type of regulator please let me know and I can give you the information you need.
Thanks for using I hope this answers you question.

Flames coming up vent

Have you or someone converted this fryer to LP and/or back to Natural Gas? This sounds like your orfices are too big and the flames are shooting out, with leaking gas around the orifice itself? I would have the orfices redrilled, so you know they are correct, as this is dangerous... The only other reason you would have fire outside the designated area is because of a leak. When the pots leak, you will sometimes have the oil leaking catch on fire and burn around that leak area... You don't have a leak, do you? My best guess is the orfices are too big...and someone drilled them out that way...too big... Any further question or if you need new orfices, please call Paul or Susan at Restaurant Equipment Outlet, Cincinnati, Ohio, 888-542-5959. Thanks, Susan

Bought a four basket fryer on an auction. It is a Model bb14, serial m25860 not sure if it is now Lp or NG. Pilot lights for both sides but does not light burners. Can hear the click on the thermostat....

Natural gas and LP gas run on different pressures. If it has been set up to run on LP and you hook it up to natural the burners will be very small and may not light due to LP works on a higher pressure than natural. If it is set up for natural and you use propane the flames could be way overgassed. One thing to check is what the appliance regulator spring is set for. There will be a cap on the regulator and when you remove the cap there is usually a small metal ring inside that sets the spring tension by flipping it's position. On top of the ring it will say NAT or LP. Now if you find this ring set on NAT then the appliance was probably running on Natural Gas and vice versa. If it is set up for LP and you go to Natural than the orfices can be drilled out and the appliance regulator tension cap flipped. If it is set up for Natural and you go to LP than it is best to replace the orfices with LP ones.

What do I need to do to switch over from natural to LP gas?

You will need the following Castle part #s
17003A- Pilot head assy LP gas @ $49.
17006L-Convertible Press Regulator LP gas @$29.
Give Castle Stove a call @ 800-637-9188 to make sure that is all that you will need. They were the only two parts I found on there website (www.castlestove.con) under your model # for LP gas conversion. There might be a need for a conversion kit for the gas valve.

Change from natural gas to propane

1.You will need to change the pilot orifice and the burner orifices
2. You may need to change the gas control valve. Some gas control valves are made for natural gas and some are made for LP. They have regulators built-in, that deliver the correct pressure respectively. Natural gas is 3.5 inches of water column, LP is 10 inches of water column.
Some manufacturers sell kits to change the spring in the regulator from Nat to LP
You would need a parts breakdown on the specific model number of your fryer to find the parts you need. Hope this helps.

Converting LP dryer back to Natural Gas

Hi, The Vent hole is usually on gas valves to make it universal for other applications requiring a vent. If there are no open holes on your gas valve this nut is not needed. You could contact a local appliance parts dealer with the mod and ser # on your dryer and just ask them what all is included in the conversion kit. You may even want to purchase a new one to make sure you did keep all the parts and you would also have new instructions for about $10-15. It would be better to be safe than to have to worry about burning your house down. With the LP parts you are taking out, Make some notes on what would need done to reconvert and fasten them inside the dryer access panel. NOTE: If this solution does not rate at least (almost there) please do not rate. Thank You, kstfas P.S. Gas companies are very helpful about checking things out for you because they are concerned about gas safety and their services are usually free.
