Vermont Casting Radiance Gas Stove (RUVSOD) NG to Propane (LP)

I have a brand new Radiance RUVSOD (vent free) set up for Natural Gas. The person who sold the brand new stove to me thought the model was field convertable to LP. The serial number is 5921. Apparently, the unit is NOT field convertable.

Any one know what is necessary to convert to LP gas? Thanks!

Unfortunaletly, due to the delicate nature of vent-free appliances, you'll find that most are not field convertable. If the vent free appliance were to lose its efficiency, you would be subjected to high levels of CO, carbon monoxide, and could likely die. Therefore, field conversion is not recommended and in this case, not possible. Vermont Castings does not provide parts to convert and if they did you would be essentially replacing the entire unit short of the outer cast shell. I wish you luck.

Can I convert a NG Vermont Castings BBQ to Propane. moving and new house has no NG available. Model SCS 5005.


Unfortunately, Peter, for safety reasons, VC grills are not approved to be converted from one gas type to another. Each grill is manufactured, tested and approved for it's specific gas type. Converting it from LP to Natural Gas places all the liability on you, if something should go wrong as a result of the conversion. Further, you would notice a significant change in the heating ability and the lower flame height, when set on high. The reason for this, is that LP Gas burns cleaner and hotter than Natural Gas in an outdoor environment.

I know you would be happy not having to refill the tank, but I think you would really disappointed in the performance of the grill, if converted to Natural Gas.

I hope this helps you and Happy Grilling!! Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Am looking for a propane burner for a vermont castings radiance 2600- you can't get the conversion kit from natural to propane- what can I do to get this to run on propane?


Unfortunately, as you discovered, there are no gas conversion for your Vent-free gas log stove. There are none available for any Vent-free supplemental gas heating product. And despite what others may tell you, there's more to the conversion, than just changing the pilot orifice. By the time you bought all the parts to safely do it, it wold have cost you more than you would want to spend. The bottom line is, it can not be done safely. And any attempts to convert and operate it, puts all the liability on you if something where to go wrong.

I wish I had better news for you. But, it's always best to err on the side of caution and safety, when dealing with gas fired products.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

I have a new Vermont castings Signature Series 401 Natural gas grill. Even when the burners are set on high there doesn't seem to be a very big flame on any of the burners and with all the 4 burners on...


You may have a new VC Natural Gas grill, but I'm willing to bet that it has LP Gas Orifices in it, instead of natural gas ones. Sometimes this happens. It gets mismarked as Natural Gas, when in fact it's Propane.

To confirm this, remove a burner, then remove the orifice, It should be stamped for which gas it's for. It will say NAT or LPG or LP

If you find this the problem, contact the VC dealer you purchased it from, for No Charge replacement orifices.

Hope this helps you to troubleshoot and solve the problem

if you know a lot about it you could convert it your self....you need to get rid of the Propane regulator....you need a Natural Gas Valve and you need to change the orifices....should be stamped on the rating plate the size of orifice for natural gas....I wouldn't recommend you do it yourself unless you have a license....or as I said know a lot about it...I wouldn't have a problem doing it in my own house...however you run into Insurance implications should anything happen if it's not an approved kit from the mfg.
