Would have to have conversion kit IF available. Must get from mfr. The Dayton brand is owned exclusively by W.W.Grainger. Not sure if someone else makes their furnaces for them. Start w/ Grainger, if they won't sell to you maybe they will give you the name of a company who will work on it. Good Luck!

How do I know if my Caloric Heritage gas range is propane or natural gas? It is a used stove that was given to us


Stoves are usually sent from the factory set for natural gas. they have to be converted to Propane. If it is set for propane the flame will be very low on natural gas. If set for natural gas on propane the flame will be very large. The orifices for natural gas are much larger than propane orifices. and the regulator is converted acordingly.

Is there a kit to change from propane to natural gas for a Daton model # 3e239e unit heater. I have talked to Graingers and they don't know and they say the unit has been discontinued. If there is can you...


Bill, the model number is good, but won't get anybody the part number of the gas valve. Basically, there are 2 issues to address, the pilot orifice size and the pressure regulator. Get the numbers off of the gas valve (OEM numbers, brand) (likely White-Rogers or Honeywell), and search via manufacturer for conversion kit. (Generally a spring and a pilot orifice). Should you locate a kit, be prepared to have someone properly adjust the manifold pressure once installed. Also, as the make things cheaper, sometimes they are built for one fuel or the other and sealed. You may end up buying a new gas valve. Being raised in a propane plant, I recall their skill-set far superior to general HVAC guys (like myself) in this arena. As propane conversions are a part of everyday life for them (temporarily making a furnace run on propane during construction and switching over once the gas line is hooked up), they are probably a good starting point!

You can use a universal gas valve such as VR8200 from www.grainger.com as long as you get the correct gaas (Natural or Propane) Have them cross reference tha valve.
