SOURCE: I want to convert to natural gas.

The only thing you can do if Weber doesn't have a natural gas manifold for their grills , is to buy one that will fit. They use propane on outside grills because of the stability of the gas. Natural gas will blow out much easier.

On the weber model you need to purchase the natural gas model. It will cost you alot more to buy all parts needed to convert. Weber doesnt want you to convert do to safety reasons. This is why they will only tell you you can't convert. Buy the right grill and save yourself a headache.

SOURCE: converting weber natural gas grill to LP Gas

Hello,
You will need to replace the orifices and install a propane regulator and hose. Plus, of course, you'll need to buy a 20# cylinder. I looked up your grill serial # and found a parts explosion for your grill. Here is the link: http://www.weber.com/PublicSchematic/view.aspx?model=6821001

If you click on the "additional parts" link, they have the conversion kits listed, but none of them are available anymore. As a propane guy, your best bet is to take it to a local propane co and have them convert it to propane for you. They will drill out your existing orifices and install spuds, and then re-drill smaller holes for the appropriate BTU rating for each burner. Then they can install the regulator and hose and even sell you a new and full 20# cylinder. Call around first and see which one can help you, as not all have serviceman that can do this particular job. Hope this helps. Douglas

SOURCE: Conversion kit for Weber Summit LP to Natural Gas

You can buy a conversion kit for $150.00 from the Weber Parts center. However you don’t need to purchase a conversion kit. You can drill out the Brass Orifices with a 1/16 drill bit you should be good up to 15,000 BTU. You do need a Natural Gas hose/regulator. After that you should be good to go!

Do they have coversion kits for webber summit silver grills lp to natural


eber does not sell conversion kits for any of their gas grills.Nor, do they recommend converting them, as a matter of safety. Each grill whether Natural Gas or Propane is tested and approved for that specific gas type.With Weber grills,as with many other brands, there's more to converting the grill from one gas type to another, than just changing the burner orifices. It also requires changing all the burners, because their venturi valves (air intake) are not adjustable.

Hope this helps you and thank you for choosing FixYa.

I have a Weber Silver B grill that I purchased 12 years ago.I would like to convert it from propane to Natural Gas. I have been told I cant! Is this true? If not, where can I get a conversion kit? Thanks!


Weber stopped selling conversion kits due to some legal action in 2008. There are no longer kits available. What you would have to do to covert it is order a replacement gas valve for the NG version of your grill just to get the orifices. Then you have to replace the LP regulator with a NG regulator. Typically most NG grills do NOT have a regulator but local building codes will require a NG regulator and a different gas line hose.
Conversion of a BBQ gas valve to NG is a matter of drilling out the orifice to a larger hole in an LP orifice.
You will not find anyone that will perform this conversion for you due to legal liabilites.
If you want to convert it... you will either have to order the whole gas control valve for NG or drill out the orifices yourself in your current gas valve hoping your got the orifice hole size correct when you drilled it. Mind you all liability for doing this lies solely with you.

Can a weber spirit e210 natural gas grill be converted to LP gas? I won the grill but don't have natural gas at my home


Weber sells conversion kits. Basically, you need a new regulator and manifold to accommodate LP instead of the existing regulator/manifold setup for natural gas. Unfortunately, Weber does not sell their parts online. Their parts phone # is: 877-731-8081

My weber genesis platinum gas grill won't get hotter than 300 deg


Are you using natural gas or LP gas. If LP, replace the regulator filter. If clogging, you won't get the full amount of gas.
