    Where did you get the orifices from? Universal kits are not always universal, you may need orifices that are specific for your grill model. If you are switching from NG to LP you need to get a hose and regulator for propane applications. The regulator you listed is one I use for NG applications.

How do you revert a Kenmore Elite He5 gas dryer from propane to natural gas. Is it just changing out the orifice?


a little more than the orifice needs to be changed the pressure regulator and on some the whole gas valve body

Convert maxitrol regulator#rv47cl natural to propane gas


Some gas ranges cannot be converted. If your model can be converted it normally requires flipping over the regulator diaphragm and also changing orifices for all burners, surface and oven. Most modern new appliances come with the LP orifices located on a card attached to the regulator.

I would like to convert a grill that was used on natural gas back to propane. Can I just purchase a regulator and hose and be good, or do I need to change anything else on the grill?


Burner orifices must be resized or adjusted to accommodate higher pressure LP.
Air shutters should be opened all the way to allow maximum air to gas ration.

We purchased a used Vulcan Steamer model # VSX10GC which was set up for propane. We need to convert it to Natural Gas. How do we do this and how do we get the parts



Please be careful when converting appliances form natural gas to propane. Depending on the equipment there are several changes that need to be made. You will at least have to change burner orifices and convert or replace the gas valve. Some gas valves are not convertible. What many people over look are changing the pilot orifice and on some appliances like braising pans, griddles and char broilers there is a runner tube orifice. The gas valve also needs to be adjusted to the proper manifold pressure and pilot adjustments will be required. I recommend on Vulcan equipment that you contact Hobart Service since they are factory trained on all Vulcan cooking equipment.

I'm converting my natural gas dryer over to LP gas. I've changed the orifice but it is saying to close the regulator. It says the same thing with Natural gas but that doesn't make sense because it isn't...


I know from working on piles of restaurant equipment, that when you change over from natural to propane, you have to change the orifices and the regulator. Most natural gas equipment needs 3.5-4.0" of W.C. (that is, water column) and most propane gas equipment needs 9.0-11.0" W.C. The density and specific gravity of the gases are different. If it is glued so as you can not make any adjustments to the pressure, change the regulator to a propane one. Most natural gas regulators can not be adjusted to the propane pressure needed. Please be careful as working with gas can be dangerous. Natural gas is usually lighter than air and will rise but propane is heavier and will "pool" or "puddle" in low areas and can cause explosions in the right circumstances.

Do I need a part to convert my Maytag gas dryer/washer combo back from propane to Natural Gas?


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.

New BBQ chaged from propane to NG


Hello. The conversion of any gas appliance usually requires changing orifices, regulator and burner. Then once those changes are made you can adjust the gas flow. The difference in the orifices is this.
Natural gas orifices are larger than liquid propane orifices simply because the gas pressure for the natural gas is lower.

I would double check to be sure that you have installed the correct orifice. Also, you can adjust the amount of gas by turning the orifice in or out, using that socket.

Natural gas to propane


changing from natural to propane requires different jet sizes and repositioning of the air mixture shrouds
working with gas is not in the domain of diy as you have found out so get in a gas fitter to do the conversion properly with out risk of an explosion or fire

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.

Changing lp heater to use natural gas


Yes. the orifice has a tiny hole in it.It is located at the tip of the pilot before the flame, and at the tip of the injectors. Natural gas and propane molecules are different sizes in the vapor state. The orifice regulates how much vapor comes out. You need to change the orifice in the pilot and the burner injectors for it to work properly. If you don't you will get a very large flame or a very small one, depending which way convert from. If you have the papers from the company that made the heater, they should be able to help you changer over. You also may need to make some adjustment if you are at high altitude, 2,000' or more, as the air is thinner (less oxygen) so the regulator needs to be set to higher volume.
