    Would it be safe to convert this by changing the gas valve if so do you know what gas valve would be recommended

    I would like to safely convert my Cozy CF503C counterflow wall furnace from Nat gas to LP. I was going to change the orfice, but noticed a sticker on it that read DO NOT CONVERT. So I'm wondering what is the safe way to convert this furnace. Do I need to but a new gas valve, if so what valve is recommended, is there anything else I need to change to safely convert this. Thanks

    RULE OF THUMB: When it comes to combustible systems, believe the
    original equipment manufacturer. If they tell you not to convert it,
    dont.
    I sent you specifications for your counterflow wall furnace, which
    contain the advice to contact the wholesaler from whom the unit was
    purchased for further information.

Hi
There usually is a metering device in gas valves for accepting natural gas and propane. You need to find out if yours has that ability or just purchase a new one which is inexpensive and probably the right way to go and install the new valve. That is the only adjustment needed

If they don't offer a conversion kit it's game over! It cannot be legally converted. If you go ahead and alter the appliance and somebody is hurt or property is damaged by it, you will be liable, and insurance companies will not cover you for losses.

You will need to contact the manufacturer to find out two things...Is it convertable, and what parts etc. are needed to do that. If they will provide both of these things, you are away to the races! Install the conversion kit and new rating plate, and you are done.

By the way...Most manufacturers supply the units from the factory set up for NG and provide propane conversion kits. There are very few appliances that can not be converted from propane back to NG. There ARE a few, but not very many!

Change out the gas flow orifice size to propane.


Purchase a new one which is inexpensive and probably the right way to go and install the new valve. That is the only adjustment needed.

Thanks.

You need to find a brand that does allow for the conversion....As you probably noticed the orifice is removable on your model.. The reason for the sticker stating not to convert is because of the liability issues that the mfr. doesnt want responsibilty for....The safest way is to call the gas co. Even if you have to tell a little white lie that you suspect it might have leak...They will come out for free ..At this point befriend the gas man and pick his brain for the answers you need....I myself have converted my LP barbque to natural and it also had the same sticker.... So it is possible...Good Luck

You need to replace the gas valves for ones that accept propane, and also to replace the meter.

The job is quite complicate, I can do repair many appliances, but I would need to call a technician to do a conversion, there are also many safety issues involved.

I would suggest you not to convert it as it may be dangerous because such coverting and altering may result in leakage problems further.

Gas conversion lp kit 8927 has 2 pilot orifices...I only need 1, correct?


The smallest pilot orifice is used for LP. Make sure you read the instructions thoroughly. Usually the gas valve pressure regulator is disabled and the burner orifices are also changed. Good luck and hope this helps.

Gas stove need to switch to propane


Hi,

Hotpoint supplies the orifices and instructions with each range for converting. It is just that it is hidden, they attach it to the gas regulator. The regulator is near the bottom back typically. Here is a cut out from your use and care manual.

CONVERTING TO LP GAS (or converting
back to natural gas from LP)
This range leaves the factory set for use with natural
gas. If you want to convert to LP gas, the conversion
must be performed by a qualified LP gas installer.
The conversion instructions and LP orifices can be found
attached to the range next to the pressure regulator.
Keep these instructions and the orifices in case you want
to convert back to natural gas.

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.

Convert to LP?


If it is possible, then the orifice has to be changed. The regulator may need to be changed as well. I am a certified LP technician for recreational vehicles, but I don't know enough about this particular appliance to say for sure if it can be converted. The best thing is to contact Miele directly, but this sort of conversion always requires a different orifice. Note that propane, butane, and natural gas are all forms of LP (Liquified petroleum), so conversion between the 3 is usually possible
