How i can convert Torbu sts 4-burner sts grill from natural gas to propain


To convert the fuel type for any barbecue the regulator has to be changed and all the prefaces have to be changed.
The regulator and the orifices must be purchased together or at the same time because the hole drilled in the orifice is dependent on the amount of pressure allowed into the manifod by 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.

CalFlame 4-burner convection BBQ rear rotisserie burner does not work. Converted to natural gas. There is a spark but gas will not ignite. Held match to burner and it would light but would go out when...


Check the air shutter adjustment on the rotisserie burner. It may be starving for air. Also make sure the burner is properly positioned over the orifice. When it was converted, it may not have been put back into place correctly. Also, it's possible the orifice may have been re-drilled out at the wrong size for natural gas. If you know the rotisserie burner BTU rating, I can look up the correct orifice hole size to check if it's right. Douglas

I have a Frigidaire Stove, Model # FGF316ASA. It was changed from propane to natural gas. The oven works well. The burners, however, will only burn a low flame. Is there a solution for this?


When converting an appliance from propane gas to natural sometimes a technician will drill the orifice to a larger size rather than replace the orifices. Either way is fine, but sometimes the orifices don't get drilled to the correct size. The regulator must be on the propane setting if it is a convertible regulator. If your oven is working fine.... the top burner orifices probably need to be checked that they are the correct size. A simple fix.

How do I reconvert my Natural Gas BBQ BACK to LPG?


Hello,
You will need to replace the nat gas orifices with propane ones, as propane orifices have smaller holes than nat gas ones. If you can't find a conversion kit for your grill, take it to a local propane co and have them convert it for you. What I do is drill out the existing orifices on the grill and install a spud, then redrill the spud with the smaller hole for LP-Gas. Then you will need to buy a regulator and hose and a 20# propane cylinder, if you don't have one. You can get those things from the propane co too. Call around first and see if anyone can help you.

NOTE: If your grill data plate isn't marked with the BTU rating of each burner, look at the nat gas orifices and see if there is a number stamped on it. I can reference this number to tell you what BTU rating they are drilled for and use that to redrill for propane. If they are not stamped with a number, then I would use my nat gas orifice drills to gauge what hole size it is. Hopefully you can find a local propane co that carries these orifice drill kits and orifice spuds to get the job done. You didn't mention the grill brand or model #, so I can't help with specifics until I know what you have. I may be able to find a conversion kit online if I knew that info.

Converting weber natural gas grill to LP Gas


Hello,
You will need to replace the orifices and install a propane regulator and hose. Plus, of course, you'll need to buy a 20# cylinder. I looked up your grill serial # and found a parts explosion for your grill. Here is the link: http://www.weber.com/PublicSchematic/view.aspx?model=6821001

If you click on the "additional parts" link, they have the conversion kits listed, but none of them are available anymore. As a propane guy, your best bet is to take it to a local propane co and have them convert it to propane for you. They will drill out your existing orifices and install spuds, and then re-drill smaller holes for the appropriate BTU rating for each burner. Then they can install the regulator and hose and even sell you a new and full 20# cylinder. Call around first and see which one can help you, as not all have serviceman that can do this particular job. Hope this helps. Douglas

Converting Weber Genesis Silver B from LP to Natural Gas


Hello...I have the same grill and want to do the same conversion...From my research, you need to drill out the three orifices with a size #53 wire gauge drill bit. ( this resizes each orifice to 12000 BTU's each, which the grill is rated at 36000 BTU's).Then remove the existing hose and regulator. Replace the hose with a Quick disconnect compression fitted hose. The NG supply needs to have a pressure regulator installed, with a shutoff and quick disconnect fitting installed. Connect the hoes from the grill to the supply, and fire it up...THIS IS WHAT I INTEND ON DOING TO MY GRILL,BUT YOU DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK>>>

Uniflame gbc820w propane to natural gas adapter question


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.
