Question and Answers

Q:

Convert from natural gas to LP

A:

Thank you for your question.

I can understand your concern when the instructions for converting the range to LP are not very plain.

Because gas appliances can be potentially dangerous we recommend that you have an authorized LP gas technician or LP gas provider do the conversion

I apologize for the poor communication with the instructions.

To convert the broiler and oven burners you will need to use a 1/2 inch wrench to turn down the Natural gas orifices to the LP position.

You will notice in the picture the orifice that is protruding into the burner tube. Use the wrench to turn the brass orifice down tight.

The inside of the valve tube has a smaller hole so when you turn the orifice down the larger hole in the natural orifice bottoms onto the smaller LP orifice hole.

I hope this will help.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Q:

barbeque covert to natural gas

A:

Thank you for your question.

I can understand wanting to convert the grill to natural gas.

I cannot find the model number you have given.

Most of the Charbroil made for Sears grills start with a 415.1XXXXXX, like the model numbers you gave in the details of your question.

Without that number I cannot verify if you have the correct conversion kit.

In most cases the grill has the dual icon for LP and Natural gas if it is convertible and the back of grill has the Nat conversion part number.

Please reply if you can locate the model number like the format I have given you and I will be happy to help you further.

Q:

Orphice lp or natural gas

A:

The orifices will sometimes be stamped with the N for natural gas and the L for LP gas (or propane). You can pull off the burner cap and the burner head and then shine a flashlight down the burner port to see if you find markings on the orifices that are installed on your burners.

That range was originally set up for natural gas. If it was converted, there is normally a sticker on the range that indicates this conversion.

The image below shows how the regulator is converted for LP gas. You can check the condition of that gas regulator on your range.

If you are using the range with Propane gas and it has not been converted to use Propane, then I recommend that you obtain the LP conversion kit (part 316243716) and have a qualified installer properly convert the range.

These tips may help you. If you are not able to determine whether the range is set up for natural gas or propane, I recommend that you contact your local gas company. They should be able to send a gas technician to check this issue for you.

If you need more help, reply with additional details.
