    Nat/LP gas fireplace:

    If you can not get the proper conversion kit, you may not be able to install this unit. It has a UL listing and it must be "listed" for conversion to LP use. If you do not have the installation instructions listing a conversion kit, it may be illegal to install it.

    You or the owner can do whatever you want in installing this unit. Someone could suffer serious health consequences by installing this improperly.

    I personally, even if I knew, I would not give you ANY information on converting this unit for fear of assuming some liability for anything that went wrong. This is a very bad idea. Most of the fireplace gas logs are NOT convertable.

    Work oin this at your own peril.

    Yesterday, on the news, five teenagers died in Miami, FL in a hotel room with a garage under the room. It seems they may have been having trouble with their car so they left it running. Someone went looking for them and they were all found asleep/dead. Don't F with CO. Not EVER.

    I would contact a company that

    both sells Propane and services equipment. Many times they will have literature on older equipment which will tell you if it is convertible.



    I would strongly advise against doing this yourself. As someone who has been involved with the gas industry for over 50 years please take my advice.



    If the unit has a pilot that also must be converted and failure to do that properly can cause explosive situations.
