You can call your local propane supplier to do it for you or buy the conversion kit at a local appliance parts store and do it yourself. You'll need the make, model and serial # to order the kit. If after you buy the kit, you decide you can't figure out how to do it yourself, then you can still call your propane co. to do it. Just keep in mind today's dryers are not as service friendly as they used to be and if it's a new dryer, you might be better off hiring someone to do it than risk screwing it up and voiding the warranty. Let us know if you need further advice on this. Douglas

How do you convert to propane a kenmore elite model # 79671622310


You have to get the conversion kit. Mostly the burner gas nozzels has to be changed. Propane has a higher BTU value than natural gas. So the burner nozzle has to be smaller with propane.

You have to have the right nozzle kit for your dryer. Normally the propane nozzle kit comes with the new dryer. It is attached in a plastic seethrough bag and attached somewhere in the back of dryer.

Also you have to adjust the air opening in the burner for propane. Propane need more air than natural gas to burn properly. If you buy the conversion kit or find the conversion kit in the back of your unit, it will clearly give instructions how to do it.

You need to order a gas valve conversion kit (from nat to propane), propane pilot orifice and propane burner orifice,
Gas valve conversion kit consists of a replacement spring thicker than of natural gas valve spring, gas valve cap and a sticker.
Pilot orifice for propane has smaller bore than of natural.
Burner orifice for propane has also smaller bore than of natural burner orifice (one for each burner).
You will be able to find these parts on the list of Pitco Distributor when you visit http://www.pitco.com

Where do i find propane to natural gas conversion kit for weber spirit e310 gril


Apparently, Weber does not make a conversion kit to convert the grill from propane or from natural gas to propane. According to the Owners Manual - "Liquid propane gas is not natural gas. The conversion or attempted use of natural gas in a liquid propane unit or liquid propane
gas in a natural gas unit is dangerous and will void your warranty." (From Page # 3 of the Owners Manual)

See below link.

I have 3 natural gas fire places. i would like to know if i can change it to propane. i'm thinking i would just have to change the logs and hook a tank up outside. can some tell me if this would work.


Hello,
Typically gas log sets are factory made for either natural gas or propane. If you want to use them on propane you need to find out if a LP conversion kit is available for your brand/model #. Ask the place where you bought them or ask the company that installed them (if you didn't put them in yourself). If they can be changed over to propane, then you will need to buy the propane tanks, regulator and gasline or just have your local propane company put in a pair of 100# cylinders for each fireplace (or 420# cylinder to service all 3 fireplaces) with an auto-switchover regulator. They can also do the conversion, if the conversion kits are available. Let me now if you have any other questions. Douglas

Dear sir i have a empire/corcho 1500 btu heater and i have a 70 gallon tank of propane tank but the heater says natural gas can i do this or do i have to use a conversion kit and do i do that and where do...


First off, yes you can convert it to propane. The difference is that the orifice, which should be in the conversion kit, has a smaller hole for the gas to pass through and needs to be changed. Secondly, the air consumption on propane is greater than that of natural gas and for that reason you need to open the air venturi, usually to the max to allow the largest amount of air to enter. Don't overlook the pilot light as well, it also needs to have a different orifice installed. You can find new orifices and/or conversion kits at the store where you buy your propane, assuming it's not a big box retailer. Go to a local propane supply location for the parts. Another option is to go directly to the manufacturers home page and order the propane orifices.

Need to change from LP to propane. How do I get access


Gas to Propane requires a Propane Certified technician. These technicians are provided by the company that provides Propane that they will be using.
You may need to get a Propane conversion kit, for technician from the Propane company to install.
You can certainly double check on this...Hope this helps.
