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: 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.

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.
