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.

Hello there. If the parts were saved, they can be reused. If not, contact your propane provider and tell them that you plan to convert back to natural gas. They will be able to get you the kit you need, and will possibly have a technician come out and install it for a fee.

SOURCE: jenn air propane grill conversion

It is inconceivable to me that large manufacturers like Jenn-Air and Nexgrill can jointly make and sell an expensive grill and then completely abandon the consumer. I purchased an Jenn-Air 740-0142 LPG and like so many wanted to convert to nautural gas which requires a larger gas orifice. I spent a month on the internet and phone calling Jenn-Air and finally Nexgrill who actually manufactured the unit in China. The Jenn-Air and Nexgrill serial numbers are the same. the 740 prefix is LPG and the 750 prefix is natural gas. After three calls to Nexgrill I found a manager who actually acknowledged making Jenn-Air but declined selling me parts for it as I believe they have product liability concerns. I call back as a Nexgrill owner and finally ordered natural gas orifices at $10.00 each. The shipment never showed up. Calling back again I was told that they really didnt really have any orifices in stock but could sell me the entire replacement gas valve for $28.00 which I purchased. The valves actually arrived on the shipping receipt was from The Grill Services in City of Industry 909-718-6128 www.grillservices.com . Part number 750-0141/142/593/594.

Forget about pirates in Somalia... we have them right here. Shame on you Jenn-Air and Nextgrill.

How do I convert from liquid propane to natural gas


You need parts from the manufacturer. The gas orifices are different sizes between natural gas and LP gas. If you try natural gas with an LP gas orifice, you will not get much flame. If you use LP gas with a natural gas orifice, you will burn off your eyebrows and possibly other things.

I just bought a propane Weber Summit 660 bbq grill and really want to convert it to natural gas, is there any one out there who has done it even though Weber doesn't recommend it and if so how did you do...


weber does not permit this anymore because the weber family sold the company and models are being fabricated overseas where quality control is unreliable. however, converting the models is no more difficult today than it was 10 years ago; we convert webers to NG and to LP all the time. Simply change the orifices and the regulator with orifices drilled based on the BTU for the pressure of the NG regulator. We stock the parts for this and it takes about 10 minutes to convert.

Want to convert my Capt N Cook barbeque from propane to gas. Have the gas line already to hook up to barbeque but need to know what parts I need to replace and add to accomplish this Thanks


You need Natural Gas Burner orifices and perhaps, a new manifold.Also, a 12' long rubber quick disconnect hose (that's a Code Requirement) and all the necessary fittings. Contact your local BBQ Galore for the parts you need.

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.

Hello I have a Char-Broil grill model# 463268706. It is set-up right now for natural gas. But I need to convert it back to propane gas. Does anybody have or know what is the thread size on the orifice?...


You not only have to have the correct thread size, you also have to have the correct orifice size. The size of the orifice varies from grill to grill which is why "universal kits" don't work on all grills. You will have to contact the manufacturer and get the correct orifice size, or get the orifices from the manufacturer. If you need help, let me know.

I have a Fiesta FG50069 grill that is NG specd from the factory and I now wish to convert to run on propane. There's no factory conversion kit and just changing the hose creates an unmanageable flame. Can...


There are orifices on the ends of gas valves. These need to be replace with ones with smaller holes. You might try a local appliance part store to see if they have them and can get you the right size.

Converting Weber Genesis Silver B from LP to Natural Gas


Hello...I have the same grill and want to do the same conversion...From my research, you need to drill out the three orifices with a size #53 wire gauge drill bit. ( this resizes each orifice to 12000 BTU's each, which the grill is rated at 36000 BTU's).Then remove the existing hose and regulator. Replace the hose with a Quick disconnect compression fitted hose. The NG supply needs to have a pressure regulator installed, with a shutoff and quick disconnect fitting installed. Connect the hoes from the grill to the supply, and fire it up...THIS IS WHAT I INTEND ON DOING TO MY GRILL,BUT YOU DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK>>>

Whirlpool 465 Gas Stove conversion from propane to gas?


In most cases the orifices can be removed and reversed to convert from lp to natural gas. Sometimes you will need a conversion kit and you will need to look this up by model number. 465 is the oven capacity not the model number. You can locate the model number by pulling the drawer out and looking behind it. Please let me know the model and I can let you know what kit you need. Also I should let you know that your gas company is the most qualified to convert your range, and this conversion should not be attempted by anyone who is not qualified. If this conversion is not completed properly you could be risking your life and the lives of everyone in your home, so make sure you know what you are doing!! Or get a qualified person. Good luck and please be careful making any changes to your gas appliances. Please dont forget to rate me also.
