Can I convert my MDBQ-30 NG grill to LP Gas

My gill is a natural gas grill with a quick connect hose. Is there a conversion kit to change this grill to run on propane? If so what will I need?

YesL contact your local propain provider and/or plumbing supply Co. They need to see the valve and they will let you if they can convert it or not. If not they will sell you an L.P. style valve.

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 have an LP version of Ultra Chef Elegance 315 grill and need to convert it to natural gas. Napoleon does not sell the kit any more.


Jim, the reason Napoleon no longer sell a gas conversion kit is a matter of safety. None of their grills are approved to be converted from one gas type to another. Which is also the case with 95% of all the grill brands on the market today. Grills are tested and approved for the gas type they represent. Changing the gas type, then puts the burden of liability on you, if something should go wrong.

Most people want to convert them, as a matter of convenience. Not having to deal with refilling the LP gas tank. But, are disappointed with the operation of the the grill, once it's converted to Natural Gas. As, it takes longer to preheat the grill and the flame height of the burners is lower than with LP Gas.
The reason for this is that LP Gas burns cleaner & hotter in an outdoor environment than Natural Gas.

There are no complete conversion kits available. If, in the end, you decide to make the conversion, you will need to piece and part a kit together. And that's not including running a hard line to the grill's location., along with an inline gas shutoff valve and a quick disconnect gas hose to the grill.

I hope this helped you to make the right decision and err on the side of caution and safety.

Thanks for choosing FixYa and Happy grilling!!

Do they make a conversion kit from NG to LP for a Ducane Meridian 32" grill ???....btw, the model has been discontinued.


Unfortunately, there is not a conversion kit available to convert a Ducane/Webber Grill from one gas type to another. In fact, there never has been, to the best of my knowledge.

The reason for this is that each model is tested and approved for a specific gas type. Whether it's Natural Gas or Propane Gas. Attempts to convert them from one gas type to another would then place all the liability on you, if something should go wrong, because of the conversion. Even the Owner's Manual states that.

My best advice, is clean the grill up and sell it to someone who wants a Natural Gas Grill. Use that money to put toward a new LP Gas Grill. That's the safest way to do it.

I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Do they have coversion kits for webber summit silver grills lp to natural


eber does not sell conversion kits for any of their gas grills.Nor, do they recommend converting them, as a matter of safety. Each grill whether Natural Gas or Propane is tested and approved for that specific gas type.With Weber grills,as with many other brands, there's more to converting the grill from one gas type to another, than just changing the burner orifices. It also requires changing all the burners, because their venturi valves (air intake) are not adjustable.

Hope this helps you and thank you for choosing FixYa.

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 have a Weber Silver B grill that I purchased 12 years ago.I would like to convert it from propane to Natural Gas. I have been told I cant! Is this true? If not, where can I get a conversion kit? Thanks!


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.

Can a weber spirit e210 natural gas grill be converted to LP gas? I won the grill but don't have natural gas at my home


Weber sells conversion kits. Basically, you need a new regulator and manifold to accommodate LP instead of the existing regulator/manifold setup for natural gas. Unfortunately, Weber does not sell their parts online. Their parts phone # is: 877-731-8081

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.
