That heater was not designed to be safely converted to Natural Gas. Even if you could convert it, it would cost more to do that than to replace the heater.

I have a GWH1600h LP. can this unit be converted to natural gas with orfice change? If so, where to obtain the part. Thx much. Al


The 1600 series Bosch tankless water heaters, including the GWH1600H LP water heater, do not support a LP to NG gas conversion. Bosch does sell a gas conversion kit, 8719002176 , for the 2400/2600 and a few other water heater models. See http://www.prowaterheatersupply.com/bosch-therm-gas-conversion-kit-8719002176.html for the applicable models.

I wish that I had better news for you. See http://bosch-tankless-water-heaters.blogspot.com/2012/05/gas-conversion-for-bosch-retail-gas.html for some of the details. (The professional model water heaters are more likely to support gas conversion. However, it depends on the specific water heater burner/exhaust designs.)

Can Richmond tankless heater which is now LP be converted to natural gas?


If it can, then it is done with dip switch settings.
Read your product manual.
Switching types of gas, and messing with dip switches is dangerous.
LP gas burns much hotter than NG, and LP pressures are much higher than NG
Call Rheem with serial number and they might supply the information to you, but will likely tell you to call service technician... leaving you in exact same spot you are in now.

Change orfis in water heater


Do NOT do that.
If you put LP gas to NG heater you can cause explosion.
Contact manufacturer and see if they sell conversion kit. Most do not.

Can the Rheem PTG2-42PVN be used with propane gas?


I believe PTG2-42PVN is natural gas.
Rheem site does not show that model number.
As a general rule, Rhemm does not recommend converting NG to LP and LP to NG

I was given a VANGUARD unvented heater model # CFP2800BTB/VP2800BTB. Any manual downloads for this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, Susie


Hello,
Vanguard heaters were made by a company called Desa Int'l, which unfortunately, went out of business. I have installed a lot of these over the past 20 years, is there anything I can help you with? Did your heater come with the long metal hanging bracket? There is a rectangular metal blank on the back of these you can knock out and install an electric blower inside. These heaters are not field serviceable, meaning if you got a natural gas heater and want to use it for LP-gas, you can't convert it, and vice-versa. Let me know if I can help. Douglas

I need to convert this water heater to natural gas. Is there a kit available to do this?


No kits are available to convert his unit to NG. This is because the LP uses copper pipe and is within code, the NG uses black pipe and each unit is specifically designed, entirely, to use the gas associated with the unit.
