SOURCE: I have bought a natural

at the end of the pipe that loosely goes into the burner assembly, there is a nut or metal part that has a small hole that the gas goes through ... that is the "gas jet" .. they have different size holes for natural and lp gas .. the manufacturer should have both .. usually it just unscrews and the new one screws in its place .. there would be one for each burner .. if there is only one burner then you need just one replacement jet with a hole size suitable for Lp gas .. you might be able to get the new jet from a local hardware store if you take the old one with you so they can get the size and style right ..

Most of the time, all there is to do is remove the regulator spring and replace with a kit for the specific model of valve you have cause there are a lot of them out there regardless of who made it. So yes it can be done easy and for peanuts but one has to know is way around gas to do the job safely. A picture of the gas train and the valve would help a lot. Remember, 1 manufacturer can use many types of valve depending on where it is sold due to local rules & regulations. Hope this helps Regards from Canada Guy

Hi, I have Osaka Gas Heater model 43-540.


A natural gas heater can only burn natural and vice versa unless there are changes such as orifice and regulator. They can easily be converted to use either fuel, but you have to know what fuel supply you have, and what the appliance is set up for. Since you've already tried LPG, if it turns out the appliance is natural gas, then replace the spud (burner nozzle) before trying to operate it again. LPG cannot pass through the small nozzle hole in a natural gas appliance.

The conversion requires new jets in the unit and readjustment of the air /gas ratio shields. Use a qualified gas specialist for the conversion .

Hi im a plumber/gas fitter who has been asked if i can convert a wildcat 410 (a2) ser 1983 from lpg to ng which is currently in use at a crash repair spray booth is this possible?


Yes look up the gas valve part # and find the LP kit for that model number. It will come with new pilot orifice, new burner orifices and the springs to replace inside the gas valve. Remember that natural gas is .08"wc and LP is a heavier gas it needs to be set at 11"wc .You need a manometer to check the pressure before you light it again .Did you know that propane provides more energy per unit volume than natural gas. Heat is measured in BTUs, or British Thermal Units. Propane provides about 2500 BTUs for the same volume of natural gas that only gives 1000 BTUs.

Vermont Casting Radiance Gas Stove (RUVSOD) NG to Propane (LP)


Unfortunaletly, due to the delicate nature of vent-free appliances, you'll find that most are not field convertable. If the vent free appliance were to lose its efficiency, you would be subjected to high levels of CO, carbon monoxide, and could likely die. Therefore, field conversion is not recommended and in this case, not possible. Vermont Castings does not provide parts to convert and if they did you would be essentially replacing the entire unit short of the outer cast shell. I wish you luck.
