There is a difuser where the gas comes out and there is a different part for each type of gas. the gas regulator should stay the same you will need a new difuser. dont know if i spelled it right but that is what it is

Honeywell 8600m I have a spark but no gas to light spark

Is this LPG or natural gas? and is it a fan forced air? if it is a wall mount room heater it takes some time to bleed the air out of the line before you can get the pilot light to catch the first time.

Bottle freeze

the pull on the bottle makes it freeze the lpg has to bubble to make gas if the line off the bottel is too small and the heater draw is large the the bottle will freeze, so bigger tank and bigger draw off line .

My wife want's to move the furnace to an inside wall. It is presently mounted to an outside wall venting directly outside. where she wants to move it is directly under an old flu for an old heater. can the...

it can go up but is designed to go up wall cavity and unit i supposed to sit with it's back against wall to adapt to a flu that is already there would mean you would have to sit out into room a little bit which could look funny, the only way i can think to do this and look good would be to make a false wall for flu so upou don't see it and it wouldn't have to be built to far into room only far enough to hide flu i would stringly recomend someone to come have a look at it for you as it is acchievable but to make it look half descent if not immaculate job would be to get a specialist on fluing to look for you and advise on options to get it to go to old flu outlet may be something you can do but i don't think it would be a good idea as you would have to either bring heater far enough forward to go straight up it as wood heater flu would have been a fair distance of wall for clearance's, or the other way would be to bring flu behind heater then elbow out to get over to old flu exit, so get someone to look at it for you as you want to also put into a place where it will heat efficiently too!

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

Want to convert heater from natual gas to lpg are jets available for this conversion.heater model no reh210ec thankyou

Dont know if you can get orvices for that heater but almost all gas appliances can be converted for nat to lp and lp to nat,they made a spud kit which is a blank orvice that you drill out your nat gas orvice to I think a 20 drill side and install the spud in and redrill to size usally a nat-gas orvice is around 8 to 10 sizes larger then a lp.The big thing is the gas valve and if it has a built in regulator or not,some valves can be conferted to open up the regulator pressure by the spring or a block off kit and others are fixed and cant be changed,have to replace valve.most nat-gas are at 3" to7" and lp is at 10".Hope this helps you
