OIL WONT WORK IN THE PLACE OF LP OR VICE VERSA!

And correct You can addapt SOME burners to LP. Check with MFG to be sure. SOme Burners are dedicated to 1 fuel only IE LP only or NG only.

The LP has no regulator needed at the appliance it is regulated at the tank regulator, or on some 2 stage systems at the inlet to the building.

11" - 13" water column is the range for LP

If you cant find any MFG to answer your question take the name off the GAS valve you use and any model number on the gas valve and attempt to inquire form those numbers as to availability of lp change over. IF YOU DONT FIND ANY MFG OR INSTRUCTION MY ADVISE IS EITHER REPLACE THE VALVE WITH ONE THAT YOU KNOW IS APPROVED. A safety warning here is worth all the money because you cant save enough on the price of a new heater to replace any body and very few houses. Keep in mind that the spuds or orfices have to be changed also and some burners require reset of the Combustion Air inlet.

I have a 1920 Garland gas/wood stove that was running on nat gas and I want to convert to propane. Anyone know how this is done


To go from natural gas to propane you need to change the orffice where the gas feed comes out into burner. I the propane orifice feed hole is a different size.
You should be able to get this from a furnace contractor. They did this for me when I went back to natural gas.

My furnace wont come on its an automatic pilot so i dont know what the problem is we have enough propane


Hello, Most newer gas furnaces (propane or natural gas) has one of several different types of igniters. The most common one is called a hot surface igniter. This is a ceramic easy to break, glow coil, glowing igniter. Some has a Spark igniter that lights all the burners from a constant spark and some light the burners off a pilot proven /spark igniter. This one sparks then lights a pilot then the burners will come on. In any case if any of these types are not working they could be cracked or broke. Also the inducer draft motor has to be running, the little motor that hooks to the exhaust of the furnace ( if it has one ). This causes the pressure switch to close then the igniter should come on. My suggestion is to call a qualified service tech from your area to assist you. To determine which one of these may be your problem they will have to perform several test. Hope you get going soon. I hope this helped. J

Hi, propane gas is really hard on a furnace in causing a burner or burners to carbon up. Yes, there is gas coming from this orifice, what you need to do is grasp the burner from the front, lift the rear out of the slot it sets in as you pull forward, and take the burner out. Turn it over and clean it out. It may be full off rust and some carbon. You can do this, as it may take care of the problem. We have taken on some furnaces, if your home is heating fine on the 3 burners, and remove the orifice and just plug it off. Doesn't hurt anything at all, I believe its a 1/8 or 1/4' pipe plug. I have done this many times when the temperature rise is to high on a new unit, and the only option is to shut down one burner. No harm or adjustments needed. Try cleaning the burner first and make sure the tail end sets back in its slot. If this works, great, if not, plug it off and your set. Will save on your gas bill also.

I have an empire wall heater that was converted to natural gas how do i convert it back to propane?


you will need a propane conversion kit designed for that particular model heater.
which would most likely consist of a heavier spring for the gas valve and orifices for the burners depending on how many burners you have.
Most all gas heaters come thru the factory set up for natural gas and most have a kit available for conversion to LP (Propane) You will also need a manometer or a gas pressure tester to check the incoming and outgoing pressures from the green (2ndary )regulator outside your house to the gas valve inlet side,usually 11 to 14" WC( water column) pressure( static) 14" being MAX!!
Outlet pressure with burners running 10-11" WC approx. This info should come with the conversion kit if available. If you are not comfortable working with gas then find someone who is, for safety reasons.

My Home propane tank was empty, I just had it filled, but when I go to turn on the heat, a flame icon comes up. I noticed on the heater it has an on/off switch for the automatic pilot light. I am not sure...


Make sure all switches are on and open. It may take a few attempts to get gas to the burners so you may have to reset the furnace by either the Emergency switch or circuit breaker. If it takes longer than 3 tries, you may have a gas regulator problem and will need to call your gas company for repair. The regulator belongs to the gas company so they shouldn't charge you to repair or replace.

On a call for heat, the 24 volt thermostat sends a signal to the control module. The control module will indicate a call for heat with a light on the control either blinking or remain solid depending upon model. The inducer (exhaust) blower will purge all gasses from the furnace and pressurize a pressure switch. Once the pressure switch tells the module to continue, the electronic ignition will energize and send 120 volts to the igniter. The igniter will glow and you will be able to see it if viewed thru the small inspection port. Once the igniter gets hot enough, it sends a signal to the module opening up the gas valve (24 volts). Either a pilot will come on or the burner tube will ignite then spread the flame to all burners. Lastly a safety sensor will be looking for a certain temperature within a few seconds and the furnace will continue to operate and the room air blower will turn on in a minute or two.

What could go wrong? The unit will not run if there is no signal from the thermostat (bad thermostat or broken wire), the control module does not sense a signal from the thermostat (bad control), the inducer does not energize (bad motor), the pressure switch does not close (blocked vent piping, bad switch, plugged condensate hose), the igniter does not energize (bad control, bad igniter), the gas valve does not open or there is no gas (bad gas valve, broken wire, no gas), the pilot does not light (dirty pilot), the burner does not light (bad burner, plugged orifice, not enough combustion air), the flame does not spread to each burner (bad flame spreader, dirty flame spreader, more bad burners), the flame safety sensor does not detect flame (dirty or bad flame spreader, bad flame sensor, broken wire, bad control), or the room air blower does not energize (bad fan motor, bad control).

You need to first get a regulator which will go between the propane tank and the burner. You will need to know the burner capacity in BTU/HR and the pressure required. All of this can be found on the furnace specification plate or on the gas valve. It is a no brainer Circut!

Yellow flame can also mean inadequate gas pressure. Do you have a manometer? If not, call your gas company for a check.
