You need to first get a regulator which will go between the propane tank and the burner. You will need to know the burner capacity in BTU/HR and the pressure required. All of this can be found on the furnace specification plate or on the gas valve. It is a no brainer Circut!

Yes it is possible and a good idea. You need to have a regulator installed to reduce the pressure to the heater and this is a simple procedure. Contact your local Propane distributor and they will probably do this free to get your business.

I'm sure you can, contact the manufacturer and ask if they have a natural gas jet or orfice for your model heater, these are usually very easy to replace.

I think you will find the thermocouple or thermostat has gone this allows the gas valve to open and is a saftey device to stop the escape of dangerous fumes .. it looks like a long piece of thin copper wire approx 4mm thick and it extends from the main valve into the pilot light flame .. When the ignition is pushed and you hold your finger on it for a while this tells the the valve that the pilot light is lit .. conduction of heat along this pipe then opperates the diaphram in the valve allowing the gas to the burners the pilot light then ignites them .. if the pilot light goes out the unit will nort run ..
My advice to you is that even though you may be conversant with the heater .. they do tend to have all manner of faults occur when left in storage or if shipped ( jostling and bumping ) is to get a trained gas engineer to check it out it may cost a bit .. but a gas escape and the following reprocussions are far more exspensive and costly .. Also You may not be aware that if you do have an incident your house ,insurance may be null and void if no service documents can be raised for the correct servicing of a fixed or mobile gas Convector .. I hope this helps Regards Vortash

I have a large dearborn heater(da-6065e) 65000 btu that I want to convert to propane. I need to know the orifice sizes I need. Most haven't heard of one this large.


there is a site --www.eastwaysales.com>products
that have spares for your heater including propane use spares
try contacting them and seeing if jets are available for propane gas
you could alsays contact a local gas fitter that does conversion from one gas to the other as all it entails is a new jet size ( larger for natural gas) and a repositioning of the air shroud to get the gas air mixture right to get the blue flame
gas fitter should have a chart for jet sizes required for certain gas flows for btu unis

Hayward H series propane pool heater, how do I convert to gas?.


I used to be able to get it through my supplier but the link is now dead and shows product not available. I am sure you can get this through Hayward direct. The last kit I bought was around $200 (my cost, not retail). As for a used kit, I seriously doubt that is an option.

Is there any difference in bottle gas heater and natural gas heater


by bottle i am assuming you mean propane. yes there is a difference , natural gas is mostly methane gas (ch4) a very small molecule, propane is (c3h8) a much larger molecule. so they require different gas nozzles and cannot run a unit on the other fuel, some can be converted to run other gas. generally natural gas units are cheaper to run, but cost more for installation as a gas line has to be run to the unit and benefit of not running out of fuel. hope this helps.
