    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.

Is it possible to convert a rinnai avenger 25 from natural gas to lpg?


Yes it Should but you will want to check with manafactuer because it will need a conversion kit for lp gas. Natural gas is a different p.s.i. than lp gas so don't try without conversion kit. It should be just a small fitting that goes inside the gas valve. Hope this helps have a good day

Want to convert from natural gas to lp propane


A conversion usually consist of new burner(s)/nozzle(s)/orrifice(s) and either a new regulator/gas valve..

Some gas cook stoves or ranges come with the ability to run on either fuel and the spare nozzle or orrifice will be attached somewhere on the stove.. usually under the range top.. the gas valve may have a small lever that you simply move to the preferred fuel setting.. NAT or LP.

The appliance must have a rating plate that states it can be converted.. and if so..typically a conversion kit will be available or may have been included in the appliance package.

LP Gas runs at a higher pressure.. making a broad statement here.. converting from Natural to LP is more dangerous if the proper steps are not followed then converting from LP to Natural.. which typically just results in a weak flame.. regardless. it's still dangerous.

Many modern appliances will have a warning label stating it can only be used with a certain type of fuel. Heed the warning.

If your appliance did not ship with the alternate fuel kit or has a warning label.. do not attempt to convert it.. it will be much safer and cheaper to buy the proper appliance.

Best of luck.. and be careful

I have a newly installed 35k btu natural gas wall


The disc is doing its job, saving your life! If the heat exchanger gets too hot this disc is the safety. Find out how hot the heat exchanger is getting and what the disc is rated for. Check that there is air flowing over the heat exchanger keeping it from over heating. If your vent was installed incorrectly it could be keeping too much heat inside the furnace not allowing it to escape to the outside.
