Unit goes under sure heat name also.
My unit emitted unburnt gas smell the minute pilot started,
and was annoying during burner operation.
I discovered they built unit with primary pilot that had 2 ports.
They used LP and sealed off natural gas,instead turning lp/nat
knob on back activates second pilot for natural gas use.
This means natural gas goes thru LP pilot orifice and burns
slightly off during normal natural gas use(by design).
The unused natural gas orifice has 1 air mix hole and the LP orifice
has 2 air mix holes.
I carefully plugged 1 of the holes in the LP orifice and suddenly
pilot gas flame seated correctly on orifice port.Gone was the
unburnt odor of natural gas.
The typical flame in a flame appearance now was exhibited by
the small pilot,secondary pilot remained consistent with manual
picture.
Of course, to use with LP I would have to open blocked air mix
hole in addition to the other changes per manual.
Hope this helps someone with similar condition.

SOURCE: changing lp heater to use natural gas

Yes. the orifice has a tiny hole in it.It is located at the tip of the pilot before the flame, and at the tip of the injectors. Natural gas and propane molecules are different sizes in the vapor state. The orifice regulates how much vapor comes out. You need to change the orifice in the pilot and the burner injectors for it to work properly. If you don't you will get a very large flame or a very small one, depending which way convert from. If you have the papers from the company that made the heater, they should be able to help you changer over. You also may need to make some adjustment if you are at high altitude, 2,000' or more, as the air is thinner (less oxygen) so the regulator needs to be set to higher volume.

SOURCE: switching from natural gas to lp gas

yes, have a qualified technician do the conversion. You will need to order the conversion kit. It is listed in the back of the installation manual (available on-line).

SOURCE: convert from lp to natural gas

you need to go to the manuel and check if you can retrofit the heater to natural gas. there is a difference in the ORIFICE size. or check to see if there is a phone number to the manufacture and talk to them. THE BEST THING FOR YOU TO DO IS TO GET A CERTIFIED A/C PERSON TO DO IT, IT IS VERY DANGEROUS IF YOU GET THE WRONG ORIFICE SIZE !

SOURCE: natural gas to lp gas

It would be costly.They are not shipped to be interchangable like a range. They come in a Nat gas version or a LP version. Your best bet would be to get a veriable pressure knob like they use on a turkey frying rig and tweak down the pressure, I am not sure that would even work. It could be done but it would be expensive. You would need to swap out the pilots and the orifices.

In side the stove is all black how to change natural gas to propane


Not sure on which way your model is so in general on gas there are two ways to convert natural to LP gas , first you have to reverse the cap in the pressure regulator by screwing it out reversing it and screwing it in(long stem). Second you have to turn down the spuds which usually require a !/2 inch wrench to tighten down about one to two turns until snug.(do not overtighten which crushes) One spud for the bake will be found at the base of the burner assemble in the air shutter area, usually the top of the gas valve. There is one spud for each top burner, or newer units have orfices to change instead. Turn off gas and unplug before starting. Reason for this is natural gas operates at about 3.5 wci while LP gas pressure is about 9 to 11 wci. To repeat turn of gas and unplug before starting......

Converting Weber from LP to Natural Gas


On the weber model you need to purchase the natural gas model. It will cost you alot more to buy all parts needed to convert. Weber doesnt want you to convert do to safety reasons. This is why they will only tell you you can't convert. Buy the right grill and save yourself a headache.

Not really sure which model you have but when converting the over, ether bake or broil burner you tighten down the orfice cap. If you remove the burner off the oven valve you will notice that you can put a wrench on the orfice cap. Just tighten snuggly. If you over tighten you will crush the orfice under the cap.

Converting a GE Profile Gas Range from LP to natural gas


GE ships gas ranges set for natural gas, with the LP orifices included, usually on a metal tab held with one screw right near the regulator (where the gas connects to the range). If the range was converted to LP, the person who did the conversion was suppose to put the natural gas orifices back in that holder. If they are missing, comment back on the exact model number and I can look up the part number(s) for you.

Convert natural gas stove to LP


Nothing is imposible but this stove was not made to be converted. It is a not a classic crank down and flip model. Your best bet would be to get your LP gas supplier to do it.

Propane to Natural Gas Conversion


on the regulator there is a 1/2" nut, made of aluminum. loosen the nut, thur it around and screw it back in, there is a "NAT" on one side, and a "LP" on the other side, make sure the "LP" is facing out if you are using propane, and "NAT", if you are using Natural Gas. Very simple, all you need is a 1/2" wrench, or a small adjustable wrench,
