Heater has been converted to Propane, conversion is 4 years old. LPG bottles are full and correctly connected. Heater will run/burn correctly for 30mins or so, then cut out? Why is this? Note: I have NOT tried to fix the problem.

Hello, This sounds like the heater is overheating and then shutting itself off or running just the phone to cool the unit down. There could be some other problems but these are most likely what goes wrong. Some points to check would be the air filter, clogged air filters restrict the air flowing through the equipment, no blocked or clogged vents/ductwork.
Hope this helps James

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 .

Rheem 300170 HWS service manual


1) Rheem does not post service manuals.
Call Rheem and ask why, since the other big manufacturers, AO Smith and Bradford White do post service manuals.

2) You need new propane gas control valve, and matching combustion parts to fit existing tank.

http://waterheatertimer.org/images/IMG_1826-LP-burner-450.jpg

3) Rheem does not recommend changing gas type, especially from natural gas to LPG.
LPG is higher pressure, and burns much hotter and requires cast iron burner, unlike the lighter-weight metal used for Natural gas burner.
The manifold tube and thermocouple must match the gas control valve, and gas-type and have correct thread for propane.
The combustion chamber and heat transfer surface can also be heavier metal for propane heaters.

I have a Turbo Elite 3 burner barbecue. Want to convert it from propane to natural gas. Where can I get a conversion kit?


Your best bet is BBQ's Galore. Since it's their grill, if there is a conversion kit for that model, they'll have it. However, not all gas grills are convertible from one gas type to another.

Is it OK to install LPG tank to Nissan A32? Would there be any problems in the future in regards to the engine to some other parts of the car? what are the advantages and disadvantages of installing it?


Virtually any vehicle can be converted to LPG. The key is understanding what is available in your area and what is more cost effective. This will involve a conversion kit. It is not as expensive in fuel injected and Direct injected motors as it is in carburetor motors but there is still considerable cost. You are talking about adding a Pressure tested tank and the cost for that will depend on whether you go natural Gas or Propane. Both are doable. Both require a regulator be installed. Natural Gas typically requires 1300 PSI in the tank where Propane is at a much lower pressure. Both are cleaner burning and theoretically, you should notice I used the word "Theoretically", as both natural gas and Propane are said to have an equivalent Octane level of 104 versus the high octane rating for unleaded or 93 to 97. Because of the higher Octane you should get better mileage but in conversions it doesn't always work out that way. It has been my experience that in factory built LPG vehicle to experience a higher mileage rating but that is not always so in Conversions. You also have to consider that unlike Gas powered vehicles in most states you are required to get a registration sticker that is sold to at a cost of your estimated usage because you are taxed once for the gas instead of by the gallon. You have to estimate how many gallons of LP gas you are going to use and pay the taxes up front instead of as you use it. If you choose propane and have Propane used in your house you can have what is called a wet line installed in that tank and be able to fill up at home, this is not an option for the Natural Gas conversion. At first glance that 73 cent a gallon for running propane is very tempting but when you add to it the upfront cost of taxes every year that actually ends up running some $4 a gallon making it more expensive that regular gas powered vehicles. I looked into all of this when I considered opening a conversion business a few years ago and got the shock of my life. Then working for a company that used conversion vehicles that ran on LP gas found out that on LP, in the conversions anyway, they were prone to vapor locks and slow acceleration or hesitation at acceleration. It wasn't so bad in the vehicles that started out from the factory on LP but those were still problems. Add to that that there was not a marked improvement in mileage, in fact there was a loss in most cases, it is not cost effective to make this conversion.

Is there a recommended type of LPG kit for 2004 BA Futura? What are the potential issues with fitting LPG to this model?


All LPG kits are custom to vehicles they are being installed on. The possible problems are the same with all models. They include Leaks, lose of Mileage and the obvious dangers of filling the tanks when needed. I will tell you this much, it is unlikely you will save any money converting to LPG as most conversions get far less mileage than they do on regular fuel. Also, a Conversion kit is a full conversion. Once installed you are not going to have the option of switching between the two when the LPG system fails. You would think with the faster burn rate you would have better acceleration in LPG vehicle and better Mileage since the Typical LPG fuel is a higher burning and cleaner burning fuel but in reality it it usually just the opposite in conversions and they have a tendency to vapor lock more often.

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
