You gotta flip the nat/LP nut on the gas valve itself. All the burner orifices need to be changed or cranked down if they have spuds and the air shutters opened up. Then ya might have to tweak the system.

To convert from N.G. to L.P. you will need to change pilot and all burner orifices. And change gas valve pressure regulator. Gas valve must be convertable to accomplish this. Do not try to use N.G. orifices fof L.P. as L.P. runs at amuch higher pressure than natural gas and holes in orifices are much smaller. If worst comes to worst you can purchase convertable valve and the right orifices. Or change orifices and install L.P. gas valve. I hope this helps you. Thanks.

Convert coleman eb15b to natural gas unit


Sorry there is no way to convert it to a gas unit.. The only way is to replace the furnace with a natural gas unit. You will need a gas line ran to it and a Flue. and then room to fit everything in that space.

Your gas supplier would have the valves. I would not do this if you dont have the expertise. There are too many things that can go wrong and it could cost you in terms of life lost. You need to be able to measure gas pressure etc

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.

Hello. I have Weber Summit 670 NG and I would like to convert it to LPG. I was told that it can be solved if I replace the NG Orifice with LPG Orifice. Is that true ? Where can I buy the LPG Orifice...


Ronni, unfortunately none of the Weber grills are approved for conversion from one type of gas to another. Each grill is tested and approved for it's specific gas type. Based on that, converting it, places all the liability on you, if something should go wrong. In addition, it takes more than just the burner orifices to convert a grill safely. With any gas appliance, always err on the side of caution and safety.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Imperial ifs 40: gas comes out of jet and the burners work fine for a moment, then the flame ignites inside the burner and makes a worbling noise every now and then popping. is this low gas...


Check your manual and make sure your burner is configured for the gas that you are using. In most cases, there is an orifice that needs to be changed for using LP, or a screw setting that needs to be changed- most new appliances ship with a "city gas" configuration ( AKA NG - Natural Gas) and need to be configured for LPG (Liquified Propane Gas). The fitting(s) that need to be changed are tagged. This is due to the pressure difference between NG and LPG. Propane (LPG) runs at a higher pressure.
You state that your fryer is LPG. If you are running it on NG ("city gas") you need to consult your manual for converting it to NG. Outside of making sure that you are set up for the right gas, you should not have to make any other adjustments. For safety reasons, gas regulator pressure adjustments are for the most part no longer possible on gas appliances.

Hi im a plumber/gas fitter who has been asked if i can convert a wildcat 410 (a2) ser 1983 from lpg to ng which is currently in use at a crash repair spray booth is this possible?


Yes look up the gas valve part # and find the LP kit for that model number. It will come with new pilot orifice, new burner orifices and the springs to replace inside the gas valve. Remember that natural gas is .08"wc and LP is a heavier gas it needs to be set at 11"wc .You need a manometer to check the pressure before you light it again .Did you know that propane provides more energy per unit volume than natural gas. Heat is measured in BTUs, or British Thermal Units. Propane provides about 2500 BTUs for the same volume of natural gas that only gives 1000 BTUs.

Cannon Rhapsody LPG Gas open Fire sooting up of burners


well its my experience that ranges don't come lpg they are all made natural gas but you convert them to lpg after purchase now if the lpg conversion isn't done properly then they soot like crazy proper lpg converson is to change the spuds on the burners and to turn the orifice over in the pressure regulator do you still have your owners manuel if so consult it on converting gas range to lp then check to see if every thing was done right on the pressure regulater there is a square cap you take it off and there is a round part that on one side says lp on the other says ng this changes the pressure that the regulator as ng and lp operates at different pressures and the regulator has to be set for what you using like i said im not familiar with your brand or model but i do know the problem if the range did come ng then you need to make sure the conversion most ranges aren't lp because there is not that big a market for it read the plate on the back will tell you if it was made ng or lp serial plate on front may say also most of the time it is beside the bottom drawer on the range
