Hi,
You will need to contact the manufacturer for replacement burner nozzles. As Propane is at a higher pressure, the nozzles need to be smaller in diameter.
You will also need a tank fitting for Propane with a regulator attatched - and a large spanner to attatch it.
Make sure any pipe connector to this is fitted with an approved hose crimp, as "jubilee" type clamps are not recommended.
If you just fit the regulator, the burners can flare dangerously on the high settings - unless it has been designed to be dual fuel originally, and have replacement nozzles.

Generally you can drill the orifice out 7 drill sizes larger for the lp to naturall gas conversion... Start with 1 orifice and if you like the size flame repete as needed... cost.... free if you have a drill index!!

How do I convert natural gas to propane


You'll need to change out the burner orifices, (propane orifices require smaller holes), add a propane regulator and hose (these can be bought as a combo) along with a 20# propane cylinder. I would recommend taking it to your local propane dealer that sells grills and see if they can help you with either the parts or the conversion itself.

I would like to convert a grill that was used on natural gas back to propane. Can I just purchase a regulator and hose and be good, or do I need to change anything else on the grill?


Burner orifices must be resized or adjusted to accommodate higher pressure LP.
Air shutters should be opened all the way to allow maximum air to gas ration.

I have a grill Frigidaire FD27LKEC 27 it is running with natural gas and I would like to convert it to propan. Is there a convertion kit or what do I need to change.


At one time, there was a conversion kit available to convert your model from Natural Gas to Propane Gas. Unfortunately, it is no longer available and has been removed from the retail market. This, usually happens, when a problem resulted from a conversion of one gas type to another.

Hope this helped you.

I need to convert my weber genesis b to nat. gas. Have the hose. bought a replacement manifold part and installed but doesnt seem to work. STEVE 269-600-8111


Steve, you also need to change the burner(s) orifices to Natural Gas orifices. Natural gas won't work with Propane orifices.

Good luck and Happy Grilling!!

Broilmaster P3 series (purchased circa 2001). Just replaced burner, ignitor and converted from Propane to Natural. Fired the thing up and it appears to flame (difficult to see), but it just won't warm...


If you didn't change the burner orifices to Natural Gas orifices, that's the problem. Even after those are changed (assuming you didn't) the grill will take a bit longer to preheat. As Propane burns cleaner and hotter than Natural Gas, in an outdoor environment.

Hope this helped answer and solve the problem for you.

How to change a weber natural gas grill to propane


According to Weber, "There is no conversion kit available to convert any Weber gas grill from one gas type to another. Any attempts to do it will void your warranty."

Sorry, but if it's any consolation, Propane Gas burns cleaner and hotter that Natural Gas in an outdoor environment. Which translates into faster preheating and hotter searing temperatures.

Hop e this helps and happy Grilling!!

Converion kit to natural gas.


I don't believe Weber makes a gas conversion kit for your model grill. I say this, because your model grill comes two ways, Natural Gas or Propane. This indicates to me, that there's more than just changing the burner orifices involved.

I can tell you this ... If you could convert it to Natural Gas, you would soon discover that the grill doesn't preheat as fast as with propane. Nor, will it maintain heat as well as propane, in an outdoor environment. Propane burns cleaner and hotter than Natural Gas in an outdoor environment.

Sure, it may seem like a hassle to refill and change the tank, but I can assure you, you won't be satisfied with it's performance.

Converting Thermos Stainless Grill to natural gas


You have to install a conversion kit for it to work the way you want. The reason is because the orifice in either the valves or the main "jet" that feeds the burner tube has to be changed. Natural gas is really not as efficient as lp gas (propane) because it takes more natural gas to create the same btu output as propane.

In short, your grill will not work if you do not do the conversion. I am including a link that lists the conversion kit for your grill, you can order it there and you can download the assembly manual as well.

Gas grill conversion


It's safe, but you need to keep in mind that propane burns hotter than natural gas, so you won't need to turn the burners up as high for the same heat. Here's an article that explains some of the differences (but doesn't really answer your question): http://bbq.about.com/od/gasgrills/a/aa030505a.htm

Bottom line -- it's safe if you don't leave it cranked up to high flame. Two-thirds flame on propane should give about the same heat as full burner on natural gas.

Of course, you could change the jets. That would compensate for all the differences between NG and propane, and you could run the grill on full high heat if you wanted to.
