Generally you can drill the orifice out 7 drill sizes larger for the lp to naturall gas conversion... Start with 1 orifice and if you like the size flame repete as needed... cost.... free if you have a drill index!!

Hi there! You need to order a gas valve conversion kit (from nat to propane), propane pilot orifice and propane burner orifice, Gas valve conversion kit consists of a replacement spring thicker than of natural gas valve spring, gas valve cap and a sticker. Pilot orifice for propane has smaller bore than of natural. Burner orifice for propane has also smaller bore than of natural burner orifice (one for each burner). You will be able to find these parts on the list of Pitco Distributor when you visit http://www.pitco.com Regards.
check the supplier for the conversion kit.the kit contains burner orifice, pilot orifice and gas valve spring which are commonly needed for conversion from propane to natural gas or from natural gas to propane. ****natural gas orifice has larger bore than propane, gas valve spring for propane is thicker than for natural gas.
You would need new pilot and main burner orifices. You would also have to ask the dealer/manufacturer if the valve on the propane heater will work with propane. It may not because the propane tank will have to be connected to the heater using an LP hose and regulator. You would then need to take apart the heater to install the new orifices. Considering the cost of a new heater that is set up for LP, I do not believe the conversion to be practical.
Yes you can, but whether you should is another matter. I purchased a new dryer and needed it to be propane ready...you need to get the proper orifice (which lets the gas in to the burners) changed out. Natural gas orifice has a larger hole than a propane orifice. In addition, the regulator must be modified. It may involve flipping an insert under the cap (typical of stoves) or it may require conversion parts packed in the conversion kit (order one specific to your drier). This regulator is part of the piping within the back of the drier.
Incidentally, conversion orifice(s) should be included with the drier and screwed to the body in a clip. When you change it over and label the equipment as converted to propane, put the old natural gas orifice in the clip and screw it back onto the body. Put the instructions in a paper envelope and tape to the outside of the body of the drier.
You have to install a conversion kit for it to work the way you want. The reason is because the orifice in either the valves or the main "jet" that feeds the burner tube has to be changed. Natural gas is really not as efficient as lp gas (propane) because it takes more natural gas to create the same btu output as propane.
In short, your grill will not work if you do not do the conversion. I am including a link that lists the conversion kit for your grill, you can order it there and you can download the assembly manual as well.
You will have to change the orifice for sure, but you have to get an orifice that works with the valve on the heater. Check with the manufacturer and see if there is a conversion kit, it is the only way to make sure that you make all the necessary changes to the unit. If there is not a conversion kit available, I would recommend that you not do it.
Where do all orifices go on anything gas? Right there where the burner meets gas valve. The air shutter sits right in front of the orifice for proper air to gas ratio right.Go out and look at yer gas grill. Where the burners meet the gas valve ye shall find the orifice.
All stoves in this country come from the factory with orifices designed to use natural gas. To switch over to propane, the orifices have to be changed over. Contact your propane provider and they will obtain the proper orifices for your range. They may even install them for free. good luck.
