Some Brinkman grills have the LP orifice installed on the NG orifice directly from the factory.
If that is true, you remove the LP orifice and the NG orifice is already there. Check instructions in the conversion kit and look for this detail carefully. I just did a Brinkman conversion and instructions were very confusing. The orifices in the kit are not used (on my unit).
eber does not sell conversion kits for any of their gas grills.Nor, do they recommend converting them, as a matter of safety. Each grill whether Natural Gas or Propane is tested and approved for that specific gas type.With Weber grills,as with many other brands, there's more to converting the grill from one gas type to another, than just changing the burner orifices. It also requires changing all the burners, because their venturi valves (air intake) are not adjustable.
Hope this helps you and thank you for choosing FixYa.
When the units were converted, did the installer also adjust the burner's air intake valve to what's required for propane? Sometimes, that's forgotten. Also, I assume all of the connections were leak tested .... not just where the conversion kits were installed, but throughout the heater? The reason I asked this, is that propane enters the heaters at a higher pressure (water column inch) than Natural Gas. Almost twice as much. In which case, it may have loosened the seals in the regulators.
....and I quote, "IMPORTANT:Your cooktop is factory-set for use with natural gas. If you wish to use L.P. Gas, an L.P. Gas Conversion Kit is included with your new range. Models with the TripleTier™ Flame Burner will include a TripleTier™ L.P. Gas Conversion Kit and a kit for standard ranges. See “Installation Instructions” for details on making this conversion. 2. Obtain the kit. This is more difficult than actually doing the conversion. Unless you have a dealer nearby, I'd simply call Kitchenaid directly: (1.800.461.5681)They will either send it to you directly (quite possibly for FREE) or point you in the right direction. 3. The kit will come with instructions, but briefly, here's what you're getting into:The kit will consist of 1-3 orifices. These will reduce the amount of flow going to the burner(s). Why? Two reasons: a) Propane burns hotter and b) Propane moves quicker than N.G. You might need: Allan Keys, Screwdrivers, Channel Locks, Adjustable Wrench. You'll just disassemble the manifold, install the orifice(s), and GO! Good Luck.
