What is the BTU rating of the dryer. If you open the dryer door, it is listed on the dryer behind the door. Most are 20,000 or 22,000 btu. The orifice # should either br 54 or 55 if it's LP.

Gas conversion lp kit 8927 has 2 pilot orifices...I only need 1, correct?


The smallest pilot orifice is used for LP. Make sure you read the instructions thoroughly. Usually the gas valve pressure regulator is disabled and the burner orifices are also changed. Good luck and hope this helps.

I need to convert from natural gas to lp. I cannot find my owners manual. Is there one online I can download?


Contact Nexgrill and ask them for the correct orifices for your model grill to go from NG to LP. Once you have the correct orifices you will also need the LP tank and a regulator and hose. It is farily straight forward to replace the orifices. You have to remove each burner, take out the NG orifice and install the LP orifice.

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.

Not enough heat being generated


First things first. Make sure you didn't simply just the tank valve on too fast, causing the excess flow valve to cut-off gas to a trickle. Close tank valve, disconnect and reconnect and then open tank valve very slowly.

If that doesn't solve the issue, seeing that you already replaced the regulator, then it's possible it wasn't converted properly. If he didn't change the orifices, leaving in the nat gas ones, then your flames would be large lazy yellow flames. If that's not the case, then it's possible he might have put in the incorrect size LP orifices based on a wrong figuring of BTU rating per burner. See if you can you find the BTU rating on the grill? How many burners are there? Does it state the BTU rating of each burner. If they are different sizes we will need to know BTU specifics for each burner, but if all are the same size, we can divide the total BTU by the # of burners for BTU rating per burner. Orifices have a # stamped on them, so see if you can read the #'s on the existing orifices. If he used the nat gas orifices and drilled them larger and installed a spud, which he redrilled for LP orifice size, then that stamped # won't matter. Something like this is a lot easier to trouble shoot in person! Using a small mirror, see what you can figure out on those orifices and we'll try to determine if they are correctly sized. Hope this helps.

How do I change the orifice on my kenmore dryer from natural to a LP orifice?


More and more, you have to change the gas valve AND the orifice due to the liability issue of changing only the orifice and not doing a complete conversion. If, and this might be a big if, a conversion kit is available, you will need the model # of your dryer to order it. The kit will come with a spring and a tension nut for the gas valve and the orifice you need. Instructions will come with the kit. Follow them to the letter. An improperly installed conversion kit, or just changing the orifice, can be very dangerous. LP operates at a higher pressure than the natural gas the dryer was built to use, and an improper conversion presents a significant fire hazard.

Can this gas range be converted to lp gas maytag performa


moz-screenshot.pngmoz-screenshot-1.pngTurn off the gas supply.
Locate the gas valve regulator. Unscrew the top cap on the regulator,turn it over and re-install it.It should be marked NAT. LP.When correctly converted you will be able to read LP.
On the Performa all the conversion parts should just be adjustments. Remove the oven racks,remove the oven base pan,remove the oven flame spreader pan to access the safety valve. Take a 1/2 inch open end wrench and tighten the orifice on top of the gas safety valve. Tighten it until it is snug.Remove the top burners and raise the top to access the surface gas valves.Tighten the valve spuds until snug. Re-assemble all parts.Turn the gas back on and lite the burners. Turn them high and low to make sure they stay lit. If any burner is not right tighten or loosen the orifice spud for that burner only. All air shutter adjustments should be full open,

With the Jenn-Air PRG4810NP (Natural Gas), is there any way this can be converted to LP with a regulator? I'm not sure if I ordered the regulator for the LP range and attached it to the NG model, if this...


Conversion is usually accomplished by flipping the regulator cap around. Nat side is hollow and LP is solid to hold the regulator open. The oven orifices are adjustable and the surface burnres can be either adjustable or have LP replacements.

Change from natural gas to propane


1.You will need to change the pilot orifice and the burner orifices
2. You may need to change the gas control valve. Some gas control valves are made for natural gas and some are made for LP. They have regulators built-in, that deliver the correct pressure respectively. Natural gas is 3.5 inches of water column, LP is 10 inches of water column.
Some manufacturers sell kits to change the spring in the regulator from Nat to LP
You would need a parts breakdown on the specific model number of your fryer to find the parts you need. Hope this helps.

Converting your Natural Gas Dryer to Lp is taking it from a lower BTU gas "Natural" to a higher BTU "LP" value. The orfice on a LP gas valve is smaller because you dont need as much gas to make the same amount of heat. make sure you change the orifice. The little plug goes in the regulator of the gas valve, changing the valve from a low gas pressure Natural to a Higher Pressure LP.

If the kit doesnt look right, did you get the correct one?

Maybe you should call you LP provider they can do the conversion for you.
