It sounds like maybe they gave you and undersized regulator. The other to check would be to look for orifaces inside of the actual gas valves. There will be a number on these valves probably around 40 something if this is the case you need to get orifaces that are around a number 55 but you should check with the manufacturer to be completly sure.

Unfortunately, you cannot use your Natural Gas Grill on Propane Gas. In addition, there is no conversion kit for Weber Grills. That's why they make two different gas models. Conversion of a grill becomes a safety issue. As each model Weber grill is tested and approved only for the specific gas type. Attempts to convert it voids that approval.

I'm sorry I didn't have better news. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

I cannot find a supplier who can provide an LP to nat gas conversion kit for my 4 burner grill made under the name: Ducane, model # 30400040. Can you assist? Marlin


Perhaps, the reason you can't find the fuel conversion parts is that they are not convertible from one fuel type to another. Ducane/Weber makes both an LP model and a Natural Gas model of your grill, but no conversion kits. Because, as the Owners Manual states "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."

http://help.weber.com/manuals/ducane/2009%20Manuals%20pdf/Affinity_3400_4400_NG_OwnersManual_27010342_061008.pdf

Certainly, you could attempt it, Marlin . But it's not the wise thing to do.

I know this wasn't the answer you may have wanted, but I hope it helps you.

How to change a weber natural gas grill to propane


According to Weber, "There is no conversion kit available to convert any Weber gas grill from one gas type to another. Any attempts to do it will void your warranty."

Sorry, but if it's any consolation, Propane Gas burns cleaner and hotter that Natural Gas in an outdoor environment. Which translates into faster preheating and hotter searing temperatures.

Hop e this helps and happy Grilling!!

Jenn Air 730-0163 need to convert from natural gas to propane


If you purchased your Jenn Air grill at Lowe's, you'll need to contact Nexgrill Manufacturing, the manufacturer of that grill. 800-913-8999 Don't forget, in addition to the burner conversion parts, you will need a grill hose/regulator assembly. This is not part of the conversion kit.

Happy Grilling!

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.

Natural gas grill needed to convert to propane


You would need to do the old crank down and flip routine. Crank down all spuds, open shutters all the way and flip the regulator nut to the LP position.
I found an interesting video on youtube which features gas stove conversion. Gas range conversion is basically the same.

Propane to nat. gas dryer


Good day,
Yes. Two reasons. The orifice that the gas comes out is a different size, and the regulator that determines gas pressure is disabled when using Propane, since propane has the regulator on the tank.

See here.

If you are not 100% sure what your doing, call a qualified company to perform the conversion. Isn't worth the gamble.
Propane is, unlike natural gas, heavier than air. It can pool in a low spot then ............
