How do I convert from liquid propane to natural gas


You need parts from the manufacturer. The gas orifices are different sizes between natural gas and LP gas. If you try natural gas with an LP gas orifice, you will not get much flame. If you use LP gas with a natural gas orifice, you will burn off your eyebrows and possibly other things.

call me. converting a barbecue is simple; the kind of job a tech will get while still in training. The LP hole is smaller than the NG becuse of mass and air-mixture in NG so the orifices have to be plugged and re-drilled or replaced with new LP orifices.

Convert gas grill natural


ducane will not make these available anymore because the ducane family no longer owns the company and the models since 2007 are all made in china with poor quality controls. conversions are simple but the parts will not come through ducane or weber. replace the orifice in the tip of every control valve and replace the regulator. that is the only difference in fuel types.

I purchased my Weber E-310 NG unit a year ago. I just moved and need to convert the grill to LP. Does Weber sell the conversion kit? if not what would be the best way to convert the unit?


Weber no longer offers or support conversion kits. If you do any conversion it will VOID you warranty!

That said, if you can find the parts online for the LP version of your grill you can convert it yourself if you are mechanically inclined.

You will need to change the JETS and the GAS REGULATOR. Unfortunately they do not sell official Weber Gas Jets alone. You will have to by the complete LP Manifold, valves and all as well as the Tank Hose with Regulator...

Make sure you are comfortable with all of this... Leak testing etc...

Is there a conversion kit for Jenn-Air Model No: 720-0061-LP to convert from LP to Natural Gas?


Matt, I am not aware of one. Nor, whether it's approved or not, by the manufacturer, Nexgril.
My best advice is to contact their Customer Support Dept @ 800-913-8999

Keep in mind, it you are able to convert it, the gill will no longer get as hot as it does with propane.
Propane burns hotter than Natural Gas in an outdoor environment.

I hope this helps you and Happy Grilling!! Thanks for choosing FixYa.

I need to convert from natural gas to lp. I cannot find my owners manual. Is there one online I can download?


Contact Nexgrill and ask them for the correct orifices for your model grill to go from NG to LP. Once you have the correct orifices you will also need the LP tank and a regulator and hose. It is farily straight forward to replace the orifices. You have to remove each burner, take out the NG orifice and install the LP orifice.

I need to convert my Weber Genesis Silver B grill from Natural gas(NG) to Propane (LP). It is as simple as replacing the NG manifold and valve assemble with the NG one BUT Weber wont sell it to me...

Uniflame gbc820w propane to natural gas adapter question


Most major hardware stores that sell grills have a universal conversion quick connect hose and gas line adapter fitting.  That.. you can probably handle.   Next you need to install a quick connect adapter from the house gas line or meter (unless one is already there for you).  Otherwise you may want to call your local gas company or fireplace/grill store to send someone out.    Last all LP to NG conversions require the orifices on the back of your grill's valves to be changed to larger holes.  (LP has more pressure thus small holes and NG must be larger.)  The trick is getting the precise numbered drill bit diameter(45-55) for your particular grill.  You can look on your manufacturers web site to provide this info.  Often times they can sell you a new set of orifices, predrilled, to the exact diameter for conversion.  Drilling out orifices is usually cheaper and pretty easy if you know where to find the bits (internet or specialty tool store).   Sometimes your local gas company or fireplace/grill shop will provide this service as well. Hope this helps, and good luck.

How to convert from lp to ng


Yes,
I converted a Sam's Club Members Mark grille last year and just did some research on the internet and found a numbered drill size chart that gave me the correct drill size to use on each burner(side,main and rear)for the proper BTU supply for the size or BTU rating for your burner. I drilled them, All has worked well! I know Ducane will tell you not to do that, but I think it is a legal issue. If you have a problem, they don't to get a letter from your lawyer.
