Question about Water Heaters
It's all of a sudden not giving me hot water.
Troubleshoot by type of gas control valve
Check if you have water leak running hot out of tank.
Check for crossover.

This worked for me in the same situation. There is a filter inserted into main gas/ water control valve that senses water flow restriction. The sensor is connected to the gas valve. If it senses inadequate water flow it tells the gas valve to shut down so the water in the heater won't boil. Very expensive part. If you do find the filter clogged, a sediment water filter shoud be install on the inlet side of the water piping.

One thing that comes to mind right off is did they use proper size orifices when they converted? L.P. uses a much smaller size then natural gas because it runs at a much higher pressure. Just a thought but I had a water heater from the factory for a mobile home that had the nat. gas sticker on gas valve and I hooked it up in town to nat. gas supply. Unfortunately it had L.P. orifices and I was in a hurry to get to another job ,lit it turned burner on and left. Two hours later my customer called to say they didn't have enough hot water. Didn't take long to discover what the problem was and correct it. Thank god for good customers. Hope this helps you. Thanks

You have tank-type gas water heater:
Open following link to watch thermocouple replacement.
Make sure new thermocouple sits into pilot flame. Instructions for relighting water heater are usually printed on side of tank.
Gas water heaters need working thermocouple, adequate incoming fresh combustion air with no trace amounts of chemical, open vent to outside that drafts poison combustion product upward, clean burner tubes and combustion parts, correct gas pressure with no air in line, working gas control valve thermostat, no lockout condition such as tripped ECO caused by runaway heating and dirty combustion parts, and no lockout condition such as exposure to flammable vapors.
