First you have to get a conversion kit from a appliance parts store.
Second you convert the regulator,then replace the orifice.

Who did the conversion to lp? Do you have the old part from the conversion still? If not you can order a kit to put it back to stock which is ng. Not hard for a guy that's handy but time consuming. 2-2.5hrs.

Goodman furnace that was working fine until i went out of town for 4 days, turned off the power, and now cannot get the electric ignition to work [although it did fire up for 1-2 seconds the 2nd tim


You need a heating guy, not electric guy. Most heating serviceman are well schooled in power wiring and if by some chance it is wiring, they can help. But it sounds like a furnace problem. I would need your full model# to help trouble shoot the exact problem.

I will soon need to convert a 1993(?) CALORIC Kitchen Range back to Natural Gas from LP. When I installed it, NG was not available, so the propane company guys converted it to LP. I was not here to learn...


First check the regulator valve on the back of the stove. Chances are it is a dual purpose valve and once you are ready to do the converstion.. you simply will move the lever or change the setting from LP to NAT.(obvisouly before proceeding you need to have the fuel supply turned off to the appliance)

Next check under the range lid or on the back of the stove for the spare NATural gas orifices.. when they changed it out for you there were two scenarios.. the range (most do) came with a set of LP orifices..and they simply changed these out on each burner supply including brolier/oven. (orifices are interchangeable nozzles that are threaded into the supply gas burner)

If they had to swap out the regulator chances are they would have given you the one that came with your stove.. However I am fairly sure the regulator is a dual purpose and you simply need to change the setting from LP to NAT.

DO NOT DO THIS WITHOUT CHANGING OUT THE ORIFICES FIRST.

If you cannot locate the spare orifices/spud/nozzles (they are called all of these) on the stove itself you will need to buy a set. A good appliance parts store will be able to help you with these.. again.. you will need one for each burner/burner supply.

If you can locate the range manual it will have instructions on how to do this.

Chances are your Natural Gas company will be able to help you with this.. especially if the regulator is dual purpose.. even if you can't find the orifices they are inexpensive.. fairly standard and easy to acquire. Usually just called a "conversion kit".. it will just consist of four or five small threaded 5/16 brass nozzles/orifices.
The installation is pretty straightforward. Again..a good appliance parts store may recommend a service company...and if your not familiar with diy repairs on a gas appliance.. a 50 to 100 dollar service call is well worth the money.

Best of luck to you!

5 year old whirpool gas dryer heat shuts off after running for 10-15 min. Changed the thermal fuse.


Well you know you have heat for a little while so this must be something that quits when it heats up but runs when it cools back down. The ignitor is working and the flame sensor. The only other thing in that same circuit is those operator coils.e48860d.jpg They will quit when hot. They cool off and work some more. Replace those guys and your troubles will be ova.fec351c.jpg

We have a dynna glo zero clearance for Natural Gas


Before you attempt to covert to lp. You need to check the flue. Black smoke is cause by incomplete combustion. So it may be now plug with black soot. Heat-exchanger may be damage Before you invest in a lp kit. Make sure it is worth it. To convert you need the main burner orifices and lp spring for gas value. Once you replace these parts you must adjust gas pressure, nat gas is measured at 3.2 - 3.5wc lp is measured 10.5 - 11.00 wc. In my honest opinion this is to dangerous for customer to attempt. Please a HVAC contractor inspect unit and install lp kit.

I converted my 40'' Figidaire range to LP a few years back when I did not have access to natural gas. Now I need to convert it back. I do not still have the old parts and there seems to be no ''Natural gas...


I am having almost the same problem. Frigidaire told me to replace all 5 mixing tubes, ~$385, yeah right. They don't have the orifices itemized as an individual part, so no-one carries them, just the LP conversion kit. Another repair/parts guy advised me to drill out the orifices. Some other threads/blogs give the diameter to drill. Basically, since natural gas is 0.5 psi, you need a larger hole than your current propane orifices provide. Please speak up if you find out anything, I will try to do the same. Good luck.

I have a 15 year old Coleman Propane 130,000 Btu force air furnace, Model #BGU13020 forced air furnace. Afer the unit runs for 5 to 10 minuets, the flame will start to shuter and then it will trip the heat...


DO NOT attempt to repair this yourself. LP gas is a very unforgiving gas. Sounds like your heat exchanger is plugged. Yes it can be removed and checked, BUT it is not recommended. Trust your local repair tech. Any heater 15+ years old should be discarded.
