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 ..

Convert from gas to lp


This is going to result in you needing a different metering orifice on the gas valve. There are LPG kits to install this, but I highly recommend a professional to eat the liability on this one because LPG is heavier than Natural gas and if it's installed improperly, a leak will cause the gas to settle on the ground creating an explosion hazard.

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.

329H portable heater Can this be converted to a gas bottle fitting will it be ok what is the use age and how many watts of power to run the electronics etc


You need to convert the unit if you are changing from Natural gas to LPG. This involves getting a full conversion kit for your model and changing burner , gas pressures and electronic settings.

Power draw on high remains at 22Watts. Input is almost identical for either natural or LPG gas as you would expect but running costs depends on how much you pay for your LPG. For example in Australia we use 45kg bottles of LPG, they retails at about A$110 delivered. One of these would last about 170 hours running a 329 on high.About 2 litres of LPG per hour
