Question about Grilling
I bought a weber grill probably 12 years ago. model # 8103. at first, I connected it right into the gas line in the house.. I am now buying a new house that does not have gas in it. can I buy some kind of converter to convert it to a propane tank??

If you are sure that gas is coming out of the burner(s) at a roughly normal rate, then the only way it will not light is if you have a bad tank of propane. If you mean it lights but wont stay on, then the safety thermocouples (need to be hot to allow gas to flow) may be faulty - more likely somehow out of position - they can be gently bent back into place but not more than a couple of times. (the way to check if these are the problem is to make sure you are lighting the grill with the control knob in the "light" position - usually held in for a few seconds - this will bypass the thermocouples) If the problem is that the autostart feature is not working, then please post back with details and we can hopefully help identify the problem. Hope this helps - please post again with more info if not :)

On the weber model you need to purchase the natural gas model. It will cost you alot more to buy all parts needed to convert. Weber doesnt want you to convert do to safety reasons. This is why they will only tell you you can't convert. Buy the right grill and save yourself a headache.

The interior of the cover on my nat. gas grill is separating from the exterior. The edges have become loose and are slowly flaking away. can or will this separate from the exterior portion?

You will need to replace the orifices and install a propane regulator and hose. Plus, of course, you'll need to buy a 20# cylinder. I looked up your grill serial # and found a parts explosion for your grill. Here is the link: http://www.weber.com/PublicSchematic/view.aspx?model=6821001
If you click on the "additional parts" link, they have the conversion kits listed, but none of them are available anymore. As a propane guy, your best bet is to take it to a local propane co and have them convert it to propane for you. They will drill out your existing orifices and install spuds, and then re-drill smaller holes for the appropriate BTU rating for each burner. Then they can install the regulator and hose and even sell you a new and full 20# cylinder. Call around first and see which one can help you, as not all have serviceman that can do this particular job. Hope this helps. Douglas

Weber stopped selling conversion kits due to some legal action in 2008. There are no longer kits available. What you would have to do to covert it is order a replacement gas valve for the NG version of your grill just to get the orifices. Then you have to replace the LP regulator with a NG regulator. Typically most NG grills do NOT have a regulator but local building codes will require a NG regulator and a different gas line hose.
Conversion of a BBQ gas valve to NG is a matter of drilling out the orifice to a larger hole in an LP orifice.
You will not find anyone that will perform this conversion for you due to legal liabilites.
If you want to convert it... you will either have to order the whole gas control valve for NG or drill out the orifices yourself in your current gas valve hoping your got the orifice hole size correct when you drilled it. Mind you all liability for doing this lies solely with you.
