You will need to contact the manufacturer of the product, or find a store that sells and services these.
The difference is the "orifice", which is the part that the gas comes out of inside the machine, that has the flame burning at that area.
Orifices usually screw in , and have different size holes in the center of them for the different gasses.
The two kinds of gas use a different orifice because of the different pressures and flammability.
God bless your efforts.

Dayton is primarily sold by www.Grainger.com . You must purchase a re-jetting kit (Natural Gas Valve) from them to accomplish this.

Is there a kit to change from propane to natural gas for a Daton model # 3e239e unit heater. I have talked to Graingers and they don't know and they say the unit has been discontinued. If there is can you...


Bill, the model number is good, but won't get anybody the part number of the gas valve. Basically, there are 2 issues to address, the pilot orifice size and the pressure regulator. Get the numbers off of the gas valve (OEM numbers, brand) (likely White-Rogers or Honeywell), and search via manufacturer for conversion kit. (Generally a spring and a pilot orifice). Should you locate a kit, be prepared to have someone properly adjust the manifold pressure once installed. Also, as the make things cheaper, sometimes they are built for one fuel or the other and sealed. You may end up buying a new gas valve. Being raised in a propane plant, I recall their skill-set far superior to general HVAC guys (like myself) in this arena. As propane conversions are a part of everyday life for them (temporarily making a furnace run on propane during construction and switching over once the gas line is hooked up), they are probably a good starting point!

You can use a universal gas valve such as VR8200 from www.grainger.com as long as you get the correct gaas (Natural or Propane) Have them cross reference tha valve.

Want to change Dayton 3E133E from natural gas to Propane


Would have to have conversion kit IF available. Must get from mfr. The Dayton brand is owned exclusively by W.W.Grainger. Not sure if someone else makes their furnaces for them. Start w/ Grainger, if they won't sell to you maybe they will give you the name of a company who will work on it. Good Luck!

Physical difference between natural & propane orfice


Merry Lynn, there will be no physical differences between Natural Gas heaters and Propane Gas heaters. Check the model number of the unit, it may have a N or P or LP printed at the end of it to distinguish which gas it uses. The plate that is attached to the heater should indicate the type of gas it uses.

 

DO NOT try to convert this heater to another gas.
