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.

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.

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

Jim, the reason Napoleon no longer sell a gas conversion kit is a matter of safety. None of their grills are approved to be converted from one gas type to another. Which is also the case with 95% of all the grill brands on the market today. Grills are tested and approved for the gas type they represent. Changing the gas type, then puts the burden of liability on you, if something should go wrong.
Most people want to convert them, as a matter of convenience. Not having to deal with refilling the LP gas tank. But, are disappointed with the operation of the the grill, once it's converted to Natural Gas. As, it takes longer to preheat the grill and the flame height of the burners is lower than with LP Gas.
The reason for this is that LP Gas burns cleaner & hotter in an outdoor environment than Natural Gas.
There are no complete conversion kits available. If, in the end, you decide to make the conversion, you will need to piece and part a kit together. And that's not including running a hard line to the grill's location., along with an inline gas shutoff valve and a quick disconnect gas hose to the grill.
I hope this helped you to make the right decision and err on the side of caution and safety.
Thanks for choosing FixYa and Happy grilling!!
