Arrow Propane to natural gas conversion

Hello: D Reno

Suggestions:
Read the manufacturers on-line web site for product information, problem possibilities, causes and solving methods, part locations, disassembly, reassembly methods, repair procedures and instructions, fuel type conversions, pictorials and schematics, which may be available on-line.

An excellent source for original replacement parts is your local retail appliance parts store. Appliance parts dealers carry replacement parts for all appliances. Parts dealers are listed in the phone book under appliances.

Read the prior postings on this fuel conversion topic, within this forum and the replies offered within them. You'll find instructions to make the conversion already in them.

Additional Information:
Propane Gas Informational Pages Here:

Propane Gas Orifice Sizing Here:
Chapter 9 - System Installations

A conversion to propane from natural gas means all the existing burner orifices have to be replaced with propane orifices. Propane gas orifices have holes sized for propane fuel, which is too small for natural gas fuel. The appliance regulator has to be converted also.

Failure to convert the appliance from natural gas to propane, while using propane, will result in excessively large burner flames, which will cause soot and produce carbon monoxides, etc. Best bet is to convert the appliance before connecting it to the new fuel source.
