If this is a new heater make sure the connection is tight to thermocouple and there is no draft that is blowing the flame away from thermocoupling causing the problem as far as the adjustment i agree with ray

Don't adjust the regulator. Problems with the regulator are rare, and if you don't have the special pressure gauge you cant safely adjust it anyway. Your problem is with the thermocouple. This shuts off the gas valve if the burner goes out. Replacements can be found at Home Depot.

How to Convert to NG


You have to contact the manufacturers rep in the community to verify that the particular model of Dayton heater has the capability of NG to LP conversion. If it is, the natural gas kit will include a new set of brass 'spuds'...typically referred to as 'orifices'....for the main burners. The size of the hole will be considerably larger because NG contains less btu per cubic foot than LP gas.

There will be a replacement pilot orifice for the pilot assembly. Removed and installed usually a 1/2" and 7/16" wrench. This orifice will also have a larger diameter opening.

There should be a regulator to match the 100% redundant gas valve that is in your heater. Note though, that there may be several regulators in the kit to match any one of several brand gas valves that could've been installed on your heater....Robt Shaw, White Rodgers, Honeywell. They will NOT interchange with one another. Follow the directions closely to ensure installation is done correctly...you are working with a volitile, explosive gas !!!!

There may or may not be a set of air shutters to fit over the ends of the burners for primary air adjustment. Natural gas may require a bit of air adjustment to get the proper flame.

Thoroughly leak test everything when done, then leak test again.
If you feel you are in over your head, you probably are so contact a reliable service organization to do it instead. But at least you now have an idea of what is involved.

Can i convert jandy lxi heater 400k btu propane gas to natural gas ?


Any propane heater can be converted to natural gas and vice versa all you need is the correct regulator and orifices and possably a change to the exhaust. The problem is it is not something your average handyman should do. When dealing with gas or fumes it is always best to use a certified and insured repair man who has the proper test equiptment to check for leaks. Small leaks will not bubble with the "dish soap test" so you should always err on the side of caution.

I got a GE gas range (model JGBS22) from a co-worker. She had converted it from gas to propane. I just had a plumber hook it up to natural gas but, even with the conversion manual, he couldn't change the...


There should be a set of orifices for each burner as well as the oven and broiler. When the unit was converted to propane, these orifices should have been replaced and the ones for gas put in with the conversion kit installation information. The kit should have been reattached near the pressure regulator.

If the kit was missing the orifices, then, yes, you are missing pieces. Check with your coworker if the conversion kit was missing. If you have the kit, it can be easily done by any appliance installer (or repair person) licensed for handling NG. (At least on our range, the conversion kit installation was straight forward. Every orifice was clearly labeled with the labels different for each burner and for the gas/LP kits (ABCD (NG) vs MNOP (LP)) .) The regulator is the only part that switched for LP or NG without the kit.

As I recall, the only tools we needed for the top burners were a small wrench (10 mm) and a small flat blade screwdriver. Remove one orifice and put in the appropriate replacement. Then adjust the burners so that they didn't blow out when the oven was opened or quickly turned from high to low (for the simmer burner). The oven and broiler took a bit longer. Several screws had to be removed to get at the orifices. Then the air flow had to be adjusted for the incoming gas.

I hope this helps.

Try turning the thermostat uo a small amount and see if this makes a difference. I suspect the control board is bad but I would try adjusting t-stat before I spent money on board or service call. Thank you

New BBQ chaged from propane to NG


Hello. The conversion of any gas appliance usually requires changing orifices, regulator and burner. Then once those changes are made you can adjust the gas flow. The difference in the orifices is this.
Natural gas orifices are larger than liquid propane orifices simply because the gas pressure for the natural gas is lower.

I would double check to be sure that you have installed the correct orifice. Also, you can adjust the amount of gas by turning the orifice in or out, using that socket.

Please call the uniflame technician directly if you still have a problem 800-762-1142 Joe

I want to connect the unit to the main propane


First of all I am only concerned with your safety when I ask you to only have a qualified service tech install this heater for you. PROPANE is very dangerous if you aren't well trained in the operation/installation of gas fired equipment.Natural gas isn't quite as dangerous as it is lighter than air and will dissipate easier. Propane is heavier than air and will pool in the lowest spaces and collect there. To answer your question, yes most regulator can be adjusted, but again only by a qualified service tech because he needs to adjust the gas pressure to the equipment rated gas pressure specs. Again I am only concerned for your safety.

My Bosch on demand water heater won't stay lit


DO NOT try to adjust gas pressure unless you have the appropriate tools and gauges to do it right. You don't want to burn your house down.

First make sure all of the gas valves are fully opened. If that checks out and the problems continue, call an HVAC technician or your gas supplier to have them evaluate the adequacy of the supply line as well as the gas pressure at your appliance. Go with whatever they say or ask you to do.

Water temperature varies while useing the hot water during a normal shower. jg


Try this before replacing the shower diverter valve.

If this problem is isolated to the shower only, then I would suggest that the shower diverter valve is equipped with an "Anti-scald" safety feature that can not be adjusted, however the temperature regulator/thermostat on the water heater can be adjusted to a lower temperature so as to not activate the the "Anti-scald".
