CARRIER 58RAV NG GAS VALVE SPRING

Where can I find a natural gas valve spring for a CARRIER Model 58RAV050-08 SERIAL# 2494A17585 downdraft furnace in order to convert it back to Natural gas from propane. I was a furnace technician and still have my tools and gas permit. Our town is only 2500 strong so I'm a long way from anyone who has any parts or even wants to help because of the age of the furnace. No one can find the spring or even the part number. They all want me to replace the furnace and I don't wish to because I can and have taken excellent care of it. It's just that we have just recently had Cascade install natural throughout our gated community. Please help me find the gas valve part I need to revert to NG. Thanks very much.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: converting Thermos Stainless Grill to natural gas

You have to install a conversion kit for it to work the way you want. The reason is because the orifice in either the valves or the main "jet" that feeds the burner tube has to be changed. Natural gas is really not as efficient as lp gas (propane) because it takes more natural gas to create the same btu output as propane.

In short, your grill will not work if you do not do the conversion. I am including a link that lists the conversion kit for your grill, you can order it there and you can download the assembly manual as well.

CARRIER DOWNDRAFT FURNACE Model Number 58RAV050 08 LPG TO NG CONVERSION KIT NEEDED

Your gas supplier would have the valves. I would not do this if you dont have the expertise. There are too many things that can go wrong and it could cost you in terms of life lost. You need to be able to measure gas pressure etc

I have a Bonaire RT21/NG Portable radiant natural gas heater. Serial No 50327056. Can this be converted to LPG. If so what would be the estimated cost.Many Thanks Sue Blair


Most of the time, all there is to do is remove the regulator spring and replace with a kit for the specific model of valve you have cause there are a lot of them out there regardless of who made it. So yes it can be done easy and for peanuts but one has to know is way around gas to do the job safely. A picture of the gas train and the valve would help a lot. Remember, 1 manufacturer can use many types of valve depending on where it is sold due to local rules & regulations. Hope this helps Regards from Canada Guy

I have a older 40,000 BTU 3 burner natural gas deep fryer. I would like to convert to propane gas. The orifice number is size 32. Do I need to get different orifices to convert? The serial number is...


Hi there.

Burner orifice size for propane gas is number 55. You have to replace all burner orifice with this size if you want to use the fryer with propane gas. Pilot burner orifice should be replaced with propane pilot orifice.The gas valve spring should also be replaced with propane spring kit. The difference between the two spring is the natural gas spring is lighter or thinner compare with the propane gas valve spring.

Regards.

I bought a dcs fryer at a restaurant auction. I had it installed in my restaurant, and when I got it going flames were shooting out of the back. I had it looked at, but because there is no serial number...


The difference between Natural Gas Set Up and Propane Gas Set Up on Fryers are as follows:
Natural gas burner orifice has larger bore (#52) than Propane Gas burner orifice (#55 or #56).
Gas Valve's spring kit for natural gas has less tension (thinner) than Propane.
You have to order burner orifice ( the quantity depends on the number of burners your fryer has), pilot orifice and Gas Valve Spring Kit for Propane Gas if your fryer is set for Natural Gas or vice versa.

Regards.

I like to know how to change from natural gas to propipe


You must buy first the appropriate conversion kit for your fryer, you can check and order only with the authorized parts dealer. Conversion kit consists of burner and pilot orifice and gas valve spring and stickers (propane) and installation manual. Propane orifice has smaller bore than natural and gas valve spring is for propane is thicker than natural gas valve spring.

What do I need to do to covert from propane to natural gas on 100,000 BTU furnace ? It is a weather king md.80PJ10ECR01


Take your Model and serial number to an HVAC parts house and they will get a kit for you that switches over from propane to natural gas. The spring in the valve is different and the orifices are different. Propane runs about 10 to, 11 inches of water where natural gas is about 2.5 to three. So if you did not change the springs and orifices you will cause the furnace to over heat and posibly catch on fire. These kits are easy to change the orifices just unscrew. The top of the gas valve has cover over the spring and an ajustment screw inside just remove that and pull out old spring and insert new one. Be careful with the springs they are very tiny and not much thicker than human hair. You really need to get someone to set the pressure for you. Feedback welcome Rus

I have Natural gas and am moving where it will be hooked up to lP instead. What do I need to convert to LP from Natural Gas


you will need an L.P. conversion kit. the kit contains a small spring, a new brass orifice and a new brass cap that fits on the gas valve. some kits are minus the spring. you will most likely have to remove the burner to put the new orifice in. any appliance repair store will be able to order you the kit. have model and serial number handy. good luck with your move into the country.

not only do you need the nozzles....you will need the spring changed in the gas valve and a manometer to set the proper gas pressure output from the valve.If you change the jets only you could do alot of damage to your furnace.
