How do I convert my rheem water heater from lp to natural gas model#21vp40-1p


Call Rheem
Generally the company does not support changing type of gas since propane burns much hotter and has more pressure than natural gas.
You need different gas control valve, and need cast iron burner and orifice than matches that specific gas control valve.

Yes. You need a set of natural gas orifices to replace the LP ones on the oven and all the burners too.

How do you change a change glo-warm sit 630 from natural gas to propane


You cannot do it. Their is no way. These come in 2 versions. Natural OR propane and they cannot be converted. The pilot is designated as a nat pilot assembly and the gas valve is designated a nat only valve. Their is no way to convert it not without costing a ton of money. You would need a LP gas valve and an LP pilot assembly. It would be better just to sell it to a nat gas user and get an LP one.

I will soon need to convert a 1993(?) CALORIC Kitchen Range back to Natural Gas from LP. When I installed it, NG was not available, so the propane company guys converted it to LP. I was not here to learn...


First check the regulator valve on the back of the stove. Chances are it is a dual purpose valve and once you are ready to do the converstion.. you simply will move the lever or change the setting from LP to NAT.(obvisouly before proceeding you need to have the fuel supply turned off to the appliance)

Next check under the range lid or on the back of the stove for the spare NATural gas orifices.. when they changed it out for you there were two scenarios.. the range (most do) came with a set of LP orifices..and they simply changed these out on each burner supply including brolier/oven. (orifices are interchangeable nozzles that are threaded into the supply gas burner)

If they had to swap out the regulator chances are they would have given you the one that came with your stove.. However I am fairly sure the regulator is a dual purpose and you simply need to change the setting from LP to NAT.

DO NOT DO THIS WITHOUT CHANGING OUT THE ORIFICES FIRST.

If you cannot locate the spare orifices/spud/nozzles (they are called all of these) on the stove itself you will need to buy a set. A good appliance parts store will be able to help you with these.. again.. you will need one for each burner/burner supply.

If you can locate the range manual it will have instructions on how to do this.

Chances are your Natural Gas company will be able to help you with this.. especially if the regulator is dual purpose.. even if you can't find the orifices they are inexpensive.. fairly standard and easy to acquire. Usually just called a "conversion kit".. it will just consist of four or five small threaded 5/16 brass nozzles/orifices.
The installation is pretty straightforward. Again..a good appliance parts store may recommend a service company...and if your not familiar with diy repairs on a gas appliance.. a 50 to 100 dollar service call is well worth the money.

Best of luck to you!

I DO NOT HAVE NATURAL GAS AVAILAABLE WHERE I LIVE/


You can order an LP conversion kit to change it over to propane. Most kits cost between 30 and 60 dollars, and require you to take the drum out of the dryer to access the gas valve for the change over.

Converting broiler in oven from natural gas to lp gas on hotpoint gas range


On the oven portion you will need to turn the oriface clockwise all the way till it bottoms out. This is the conversion from natural gas to lp gas on all gas ovens. Also make sure the valve down toward the back has been flipped off of nat. to lp. Good luck

Changing a gas ge dryer to a propane----convertion package we25x10014 directions show a picture of the control panel with 4 plug ins at the bottom and changing out the last one on the right for the new...


Converting your Natural Gas Dryer to Lp is taking it from a lower BTU gas "Natural" to a higher BTU "LP" value. The orfice on a LP gas valve is smaller because you dont need as much gas to make the same amount of heat. make sure you change the orifice. The little plug goes in the regulator of the gas valve, changing the valve from a low gas pressure Natural to a Higher Pressure LP.

If the kit doesnt look right, did you get the correct one?

Maybe you should call you LP provider they can do the conversion for you.
