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

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.

SOURCE: Does conversion from LP gs to Natural gas on

Did the conversion kit give you an LP orifice for every new gas valve? LP gas orifices have smaller holes than Nat gas orifices. Can you smell gas when you turn on the IR burner by itself? Some burners styles have an air adjustment on the end that fits over the orifice. Make sure it's getting enough air. Also make sure your ignitor sparker is positioned where the spark can ark against the top of the burner. Ducane grills have rotary ignitors, so turn it (with gas off) and see if you can actually see where it's sparking. If it's not sparking in the right place, it will be difficult to light.

Testimonial: "As I expected - conversion kit did not include a new orofice for the IR burner. Conversation with Ducane indicated no conversion is available - interesting in that I purchased the kit from Ducane two years ago. Thanks for your help"

SOURCE: do they make a conversion

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 GWH1600h LP. can this unit be converted to natural gas with orfice change? If so, where to obtain the part. Thx much. Al


The 1600 series Bosch tankless water heaters, including the GWH1600H LP water heater, do not support a LP to NG gas conversion. Bosch does sell a gas conversion kit, 8719002176 , for the 2400/2600 and a few other water heater models. See http://www.prowaterheatersupply.com/bosch-therm-gas-conversion-kit-8719002176.html for the applicable models.

I wish that I had better news for you. See http://bosch-tankless-water-heaters.blogspot.com/2012/05/gas-conversion-for-bosch-retail-gas.html for some of the details. (The professional model water heaters are more likely to support gas conversion. However, it depends on the specific water heater burner/exhaust designs.)

Some Brinkman grills have the LP orifice installed on the NG orifice directly from the factory.
If that is true, you remove the LP orifice and the NG orifice is already there. Check instructions in the conversion kit and look for this detail carefully. I just did a Brinkman conversion and instructions were very confusing. The orifices in the kit are not used (on my unit).

Is there a conversion kit from lp to natural gas for this model VM450SSP


Hi,

Usually there are no conversions for LPG - NG on BBQ units. You need to contact the manufacturer about this and then get a 'Gas Safe' engineer to carry out the conversion.

The reason for this is that LPG is a higher pressure (37mb) than NG (20mb), and stringent testing must be carried out for leaks etc.

I hope this helps

Converting LP to NG


The install manual on the dacor web site insists that Natural Gas requires the nozzles be removed, that low pressure NG works with the large 'default size nozzles'. Have done the conversion, in Australia, for my own barbecue, worked ok
Gas is too dangerous to make mistakes with. All I can suggest if Dacor is difficult is take the pdf of the installation instructions, link in the first replies, and the barbecue to a local gasfitter/plumber and ask them to work on it. they will be able to do the calculations from the existing nozzle size, lpg pressure, ng pressure, and required BTU output, to put in correctr nozzles

Dacor Australia are much easier to deal with.
