SOURCE: how to convert from lp to ng

Yes,
I converted a Sam's Club Members Mark grille last year and just did some research on the internet and found a numbered drill size chart that gave me the correct drill size to use on each burner(side,main and rear)for the proper BTU supply for the size or BTU rating for your burner. I drilled them, All has worked well! I know Ducane will tell you not to do that, but I think it is a legal issue. If you have a problem, they don't to get a letter from your lawyer.

SOURCE: how do you replace a burner on a ducane gas grill

Hello : Here are two solutions , just look which one of them is the most helpful .

  1. Turn off the gas supply and bleed the lines leading to the grill. Remove the gas tank if possible.
  2. Open the grill and remove the grates. In some cases you will need to
    detach the hoses from under the grill using simple hand tools. Other grills may have simple "float in" style of burner. These styles look as if the tubes from the burner leading to the gas supply lines simply "float" into each other. Look for clamps of holders that may need to be removed.
  3. Remove the damaged burner and remove from grill. Take a moment to inspect the other burners and any other hoses in case you need to replace more than one piece. Place the burner in a plastic bag and take it to the home store so you can get the exact parts you need. This removes all guess work.
  4. Before replacing the burner/burners etc, take a moment to clean any material, grease etc from the bottom of the grill. Replace the burners and hoses as needed. Check the connections before reconnecting the gas supply. Turn the gas on and start to flow of gas to the burners without lighting the grill. Make sure the flow is working. Be sure to turn the gas off, let the fuel dissipate before lighting.
  5. With everything working, fire up the grill and enjoy.

Or try these help here :


  1. Turn off the gas supply valve on the tank. Remove the fuel line from the fuel tank by turning the connection nut counter-clockwise with your hand.
  2. Open the Char-Broil gas grill and remove the main cooking grate. You do not need to remove the upper warming racks to change the burners.
  3. Remove the lava rocks from the grill and pull the rock grate out. Unhook the flame spreader from each end where the spreader attaches to the inside body of the grill. The spreader is the angled piece that sits over the burner.
  4. Locate the cotter pin that secures the front of the burner to the grill body. Remove the cotter pin with a pair of needle nose pliers. Lift the burner up and pull the burner venturi tubes out of the gas valve.
  5. Set the new burner inside the grill with the venturi tubes inside the gas valve opening. Install the cotter pin to secure the burner to the grill body. Place the flame spreader back inside the grill and hook the ends to the grill body.
  6. Place the rock grate, lava rocks and cooking grate back inside the grill. Reattach the fuel line to the fuel tank.
Here you need Needle nose pliers.

Please report me which one helped the most .

good luck .

SOURCE: using ceramic briquettes with lp gas grill

Many people enjoy using Lp/gas grills for their ease of use and efficiency. Frustrations caused by flare ups and hot spots encourage the use of a wide variety of briquettes and other products. Ceramic briquettes are most commonly used because they provide an even heating surface and last for several uses.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); });

  1. "SOOC" is Copyrighted by Flickr user: Robert S. Donovan (Robert S. Donovan) under the Creative Commons Attribution license. jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep1 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.co.uk/images/a05/8n/jr/should-use-briquettes-gas-grill-1.1-800X800.jpg'); }); Types
  2. Gas grills most often use ceramic briquettes, lava rocks or, more recently, ceramic tiles in order to distribute heat. Ceramic briquettes come in the traditional shape, lava rocks are similar to those used in landscaping, and tiles only differ from briquettes by shape. Traditional charcoal briquettes can be used, though they maintain several disadvantages. Use
  3. Place briquettes, tiles, or lava rocks in a solid layer on a screen between the heating element and the grill surface, making sure to leave space for air to circulate. Light the grill and check to make sure that all areas of the heating element are covered, filling any empty spaces. Advantages
  4. Ceramic briquettes, tiles and lava rocks all serve the same purpose. The advantage comes from their ability to reduce flare-ups and hot spots. They can also be used several times, minimizing set-up and making cleaning easier. Traditional charcoal briquettes are cheap and easy to find. They also provide the smoky flavor associated with traditional charcoal barbecuing. Disadvantages
  5. Ceramic briquettes, tiles, and lava rocks are not as easy to find as traditional charcoal briquettes and are more expensive. Traditional charcoal briquettes do not repel run-off from food, but rather retain it, causing hot spots and flare ups. Charcoal briquettes also need to be replaced after each use and are harder to clean up. Warnings
  6. Any additional product placed inside a lp/gas grill should not come in contact with the heating element. Doing so can cause increased stress to the grill, as well as clog vital gas ports. Always maintain a clean grill. A buildup of old briquettes can cause inadequate performance.

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.

I have a one burner that doesn't ignite - what do I do?


Assuming the igniter to that burner is working properly, the best bet is that the burner is clogged an not getting gas. This will require removing the burner to clean it and the venturi valve (which is part of the burner), as it can become a haven for spiders.

Since removing the burners on a Ducane grill can be a bear to do. I have included a link to your Owner's Manual, in case you have misplaced yours, that you can download and print for future reference. Pay particular attention to the Annual Maintenance section. As it will walk you thru how to remove and clean the burners.

Here's a link to the Owners Manual for a Ducane Stainless Steel Grill, that may be a little newer than yours. Never the less, the maintenance and cleaning are the same.

Our Ducane older model grill Model #2002SHNE fell over in the wind. All insides fell out. Do not know how to reassemble. Looking for user's manual or someone who could help.


I have searched all my reliable sources, but can not find the Owners Manual for that model Ducane. Gas Grill. The problem is it's just to old. However, Weber bought Ducane in 2000. Possibly, they may still have copies of the Owner's Manual. Call Customer Service 1-800-382-2637.

I cannot find a supplier who can provide an LP to nat gas conversion kit for my 4 burner grill made under the name: Ducane, model # 30400040. Can you assist? Marlin


Perhaps, the reason you can't find the fuel conversion parts is that they are not convertible from one fuel type to another. Ducane/Weber makes both an LP model and a Natural Gas model of your grill, but no conversion kits. Because, as the Owners Manual states "Liquid propane gas is not natural gas. The conversion or attempted use of natural gas in a liquid propane unit or liquid propane
gas in a natural gas unit is dangerous and will void your warranty."

http://help.weber.com/manuals/ducane/2009%20Manuals%20pdf/Affinity_3400_4400_NG_OwnersManual_27010342_061008.pdf

Certainly, you could attempt it, Marlin . But it's not the wise thing to do.

I know this wasn't the answer you may have wanted, but I hope it helps you.

Lighting Problem/2 year-Old Ducane Grill


Do you have enough gas pressure coming out of the regulator and gas valve? You'll need a pressure guage for this.

If yes, try taking out the burners and cleaning them with a wire brush, especially the flame spreading sections.
