Converting from natural gas to propane

I have a sears 2 sided wall furnace that i am trying to get converted over to propane. The burners and pilot have been converted but when the furnace kicks off the propane still comes out there for the burners never shut off. Do i need a stronger spring in the electrical control module to press harder on the seal to shut it off? Need help, its getting cold!!!!!!

"kicking off" you mean the stat satisfies there?call the heat in again with the stat,and then go to the gas valve and pull 1 wire off to see if it closes off 100%...if not you need a valve update.thank god you have a standing pilot weeeee hope!

What exactly is a valve update? What all does it involve?

Natural to LP

In addition to changing the orifices, the gas valve also needs to be converted or changed. Some gas valves are convertable, some are not.
