Can I convert a NG Vermont Castings BBQ to Propane. moving and new house has no NG available. Model SCS 5005.


Unfortunately, Peter, for safety reasons, VC grills are not approved to be converted from one gas type to another. Each grill is manufactured, tested and approved for it's specific gas type. Converting it from LP to Natural Gas places all the liability on you, if something should go wrong as a result of the conversion. Further, you would notice a significant change in the heating ability and the lower flame height, when set on high. The reason for this, is that LP Gas burns cleaner and hotter than Natural Gas in an outdoor environment.

I know you would be happy not having to refill the tank, but I think you would really disappointed in the performance of the grill, if converted to Natural Gas.

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

I would like to convert a grill that was used on natural gas back to propane. Can I just purchase a regulator and hose and be good, or do I need to change anything else on the grill?


Burner orifices must be resized or adjusted to accommodate higher pressure LP.
Air shutters should be opened all the way to allow maximum air to gas ration.

Many manufacturers make grills in propane and natural gas, but are not convertible from one gas type to another. The reason being safety. Each grill model, whether it's Natural Gas or Propane is tested and approved for that one specific gas type and that alone. Converting it would put all the responsibility on you, if something was to go wrong.

I suspect in part, the reason you want to convert is so that you want have to refill the propane tank any longer. But, you may want to consider this against convenience. Propane Gas burns cleaner and hotter than Natural Gas in an outdoor environment. Which boils down to lower high end temperatures, longer preheating times and the expense of running an approved gas line to the grill for Natural Gas. Not to mention the cost conversion parts.

But, the decision is yours to make. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Need to convert our Q300 propane grill to natural gas. Do you sell conversion kits?


Unfortunately, Weber grills are not convertible from one gas type to another. There are no conversion kits available for your model or any Weber model gas grill.

To confirm this, go to the following link and on page 2 under Warnings, last paragraph, left hand column, you can confirm this, if you like.

The only advantage to converting it to Natural Gas is not having to refill the grill tank. The downside, is that you will loose the heating capability that Propane has. It burns cleaner and hotter than Natural gas, in an outdoor environment.

Hope this helped you. Happy Grilling!!

Broilmaster P3 series (purchased circa 2001). Just replaced burner, ignitor and converted from Propane to Natural. Fired the thing up and it appears to flame (difficult to see), but it just won't warm...


If you didn't change the burner orifices to Natural Gas orifices, that's the problem. Even after those are changed (assuming you didn't) the grill will take a bit longer to preheat. As Propane burns cleaner and hotter than Natural Gas, in an outdoor environment.

Hope this helped answer and solve the problem for you.

How to change a weber natural gas grill to propane


According to Weber, "There is no conversion kit available to convert any Weber gas grill from one gas type to another. Any attempts to do it will void your warranty."

Sorry, but if it's any consolation, Propane Gas burns cleaner and hotter that Natural Gas in an outdoor environment. Which translates into faster preheating and hotter searing temperatures.

Hop e this helps and happy Grilling!!

I have owned the Fire Magic A660 for a year and a half. The main burners have never worked right. Sometimes they light 25% and other times up to 90% but never even. I've adjusted the air, I've cleaned...


If your using a 20lb grill tank, that may be where the problem lies. All 20lb LP refillable tanks are now equipped with an OPD Valve. It's a safety feature prevents over filling of the tank. However, it can cause problems for gas grills if not turned on properly.

If this is what you're using here's what you need to do:

  • Turn off the tank and disconnect the grill hose from it.
  • Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank.
  • Very, very slowly turn the tank valve on. When I say slowly, I mean VERY slowly.
  • Once the valve is fully open, light each burner one at a time and turn them all up to the highest setting.
Are all the burners, burning properly? If so, you just solved the problem. Remember to always turn the tank valve very, very slowly when turning it on.

If you're not using a propane grill tank and your supply is hard piped from your household supply of propane gas. You may very well have a pressure and gas volume problem, depending on the length & size of the run gas piping. This will have to be determined by your propane provider. But, I can tell you this, if the gas piping is not at least 1/2" OD, that's were your problem lies.

If you're using Natural Gas from your household supply. Was the grill properly converted to operate on Natural gas? If it wasn't, that definitely is the problem.

Hope this helps you solve your problem. "Happy Grilling."

Converion kit to natural gas.


I don't believe Weber makes a gas conversion kit for your model grill. I say this, because your model grill comes two ways, Natural Gas or Propane. This indicates to me, that there's more than just changing the burner orifices involved.

I can tell you this ... If you could convert it to Natural Gas, you would soon discover that the grill doesn't preheat as fast as with propane. Nor, will it maintain heat as well as propane, in an outdoor environment. Propane burns cleaner and hotter than Natural Gas in an outdoor environment.

Sure, it may seem like a hassle to refill and change the tank, but I can assure you, you won't be satisfied with it's performance.
