I haven't had a gas appliance in decades but used to be all you had to do to switch to propane was change the orifice.

Probably have to change the spring in the gas valve and the orifices.

Depending on the model of the unit you are trying to convert, you will need more items than suggested thus far. You may not be able to purchase the items you need as a lay person. Please give the complete model and serial number and a good description of the unit you are referring to.
