Yes you can, but only if you know the BTU rating of the burners. Then you need to know what size drill bit to use to drill each orifice. Plus you will need to eliminate the LP regulator when you hook it up to your house's already regulated natural gas line. When you hook up any gas appliance, it needs to have it's own shut off valve installed on the gas line. I also like to install a quick-disconnect adapter after the shut off so I can release the hose from the grill and put the grill away when it's not in use. I have LP/Nat gas conversion charts available to look up drill sizes if you need to know more details. Keep in mind, that if the grill does not state the individual burner BTU ratings, but only the total BTU rating, you will have to divide that rating by the number of burners. Douglas

Natural gas to LP


It sounds like a pressure problem. Try checking to see if a valve or regulator may be clogged. Some times a valve or regulator or event he line it self may have spider webs or spider nest inside the line and that will block the flow.

call me. converting a barbecue is simple; the kind of job a tech will get while still in training. The LP hole is smaller than the NG becuse of mass and air-mixture in NG so the orifices have to be plugged and re-drilled or replaced with new LP orifices.

I just purchased a used weber genesis 3000 grill that was converted from LP to NG. At least it has a NG hose and fitting. I connected it to my NG line but it barely lites. It seems to me that only the hose...


you have to change the orfices as well on this not just the line the burners you can use try national energy they are on line they do spares or calgary bbq centre they should have what you need.

Can a weber summit s-440 built in grill that is natural gas be switched to a propane?


The easy answer is yes. Unfortuantely Weber no longer sells conversion kits, even to me, and I am an authorized Weber waranty service company. The only thing you can do is try and find a competant grill company in your area who has the expertise to buy the correct orifices and then the expertixe to drill them out to the correct size for LP gas. NG orifices are to large and will give you wild, uncontrollable flames if just hook the grill up to LP. LP orifices are smaller because LP gas burns hotter.

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.

Bought a four basket fryer on an auction. It is a Model bb14, serial m25860 not sure if it is now Lp or NG. Pilot lights for both sides but does not light burners. Can hear the click on the thermostat....


Natural gas and LP gas run on different pressures. If it has been set up to run on LP and you hook it up to natural the burners will be very small and may not light due to LP works on a higher pressure than natural. If it is set up for natural and you use propane the flames could be way overgassed. One thing to check is what the appliance regulator spring is set for. There will be a cap on the regulator and when you remove the cap there is usually a small metal ring inside that sets the spring tension by flipping it's position. On top of the ring it will say NAT or LP. Now if you find this ring set on NAT then the appliance was probably running on Natural Gas and vice versa. If it is set up for LP and you go to Natural than the orfices can be drilled out and the appliance regulator tension cap flipped. If it is set up for Natural and you go to LP than it is best to replace the orfices with LP ones.

Most major hardware stores that sell grills have a universal conversion quick connect hose and gas line adapter fitting.  That.. you can probably handle.   Next you need to install a quick connect adapter from the house gas line or meter (unless one is already there for you).  Otherwise you may want to call your local gas company or fireplace/grill store to send someone out.    Last all LP to NG conversions require the orifices on the back of your grill's valves to be changed to larger holes.  (LP has more pressure thus small holes and NG must be larger.)  The trick is getting the precise numbered drill bit diameter(45-55) for your particular grill.  You can look on your manufacturers web site to provide this info.  Often times they can sell you a new set of orifices, predrilled, to the exact diameter for conversion.  Drilling out orifices is usually cheaper and pretty easy if you know where to find the bits (internet or specialty tool store).   Sometimes your local gas company or fireplace/grill shop will provide this service as well. Hope this helps, and good luck.

How to convert from lp to ng


Yes,
I converted a Sam's Club Members Mark grille last year and just did some research on the internet and found a numbered drill size chart that gave me the correct drill size to use on each burner(side,main and rear)for the proper BTU supply for the size or BTU rating for your burner. I drilled them, All has worked well! I know Ducane will tell you not to do that, but I think it is a legal issue. If you have a problem, they don't to get a letter from your lawyer.
