SOURCE: how do I convert a dacor epicure range ERD48 from

Just change the orifices. Also adjust the pressure control regulator by reversing the built in plastic spacer, the regulator supplied is a dual fuel type. Any work should only be carried out by a person who is qualified to do so for safety reasons. Dacor are very unhelpful when I posed the same question directly to one of their technical advisors. The poor level of this persons 'technical' knowledge both surprised and concerned me.

Trying to convert from LP to natural gas on my 36" Dacor grill. Is it possible? It is an 06 model and Dacor has told me that it can't be done, but the manual says it comes equiped to handle LP or...


If Dacor told you it can't be done, don't attempt it. It may have been OK, 5 years ago. But, something may have happened since then (a safety issue), that precludes it now. With that said, I'm sure there others on this site that will tell you it can be done. But, my 15 years experience in the Hearth and Home business, tells me, if the manufacturer says "No", it's not safe to do.

Besides, all you'll gain is convenience of not having to refill the LP tank. But, you'll lose the fast preheating propane provides and hotter flame.

Hope this helped you make the right decision. Happy Grilling!!

Gas stove need to switch to propane


Hi,

Hotpoint supplies the orifices and instructions with each range for converting. It is just that it is hidden, they attach it to the gas regulator. The regulator is near the bottom back typically. Here is a cut out from your use and care manual.

CONVERTING TO LP GAS (or converting
back to natural gas from LP)
This range leaves the factory set for use with natural
gas. If you want to convert to LP gas, the conversion
must be performed by a qualified LP gas installer.
The conversion instructions and LP orifices can be found
attached to the range next to the pressure regulator.
Keep these instructions and the orifices in case you want
to convert back to natural gas.

Converting Dacor ERD30S06CH/LP/H to Natural Gas


I know they won't convert gas water heaters but I didn't know they were afraid of stoves. See if your gas company will help. Sometimes they can drill out the orfices. Some of the older repair people still remember how to do this. The orfice for natural gas is larger as the pressure is a lot less. The gas pressure regulator will also need to be replaced. This can be done with a generic part.

Dacor pgm 365 lp to naural gas


Yes by a licensed person so as not to break any local laws or Kill You,
LPg typically delivers at a higher psi than natural gas, and the propane content requires more combustion air than the methane butane mix of natural gas,
methane CH4 needs 2 oxygen (O2) to make CO2 +2 H20
Propane C4H10 needs 7.5 (02) 4 CO2 5 H2O
the nozzle injecting the LPg has small diameter, The Gas certified plumber can remove the nozzle(s) and replace them with larger diameter Natural gas ones for a small price, most manufacturers make both, its a simple job
Cant stress - Gas Certified plumber/tradesman - strongly enough, one explosion will ruin your whole day

Propane to Natural Gas Conversion


on the regulator there is a 1/2" nut, made of aluminum. loosen the nut, thur it around and screw it back in, there is a "NAT" on one side, and a "LP" on the other side, make sure the "LP" is facing out if you are using propane, and "NAT", if you are using Natural Gas. Very simple, all you need is a 1/2" wrench, or a small adjustable wrench,
