Hello emarie2006. Welcome to my Gas Appliances topic and the Do-It-Yourself Web Site.

Not worth your time, effort or expense even if it were possible.

Donate it to a charity and buy one that uses the power source needed.

As Sharp said, it would be worth the trouble to do so. Just a hint of what would be involved:

Remove all of the gas workings and replace the burner with an electric element.

Switch the electric system from 120 Volts AC to 240 Volts AC.

I can't say it would be impossible to do, however, I've never heard of it being done. If it could be done, it's not a DIY project.
