    I recently inherited a Vermont Castings ("V.C.") Radiance Model 2600. I really want to use this stove as I've admired it for years, but cannot track down a conversion kit #5093 for the stove. I have gotten the full story from my local V.C. retailer and several online sources. V.C. has been sold/purchased several times in the past decade and the newest owner is no longer supplying the parts for the Model 2600 stoves. The stove was manufactured, I believe, by CFM and the gas fittings/orifices were supplied by Honeywell (I understand that Honeywell no longer makes these parts).

    Does anyone have this kit or have any ideas as to where I might find it. I'd be willing to pay for used parts to convert this stove. Bringing natural gas to my house is not an option for me.

    Thanks Very Much, Karl

    Try contacting Monessen...Either a dealer or online, or PM Dave Gault (Wood Heat Stoves) in this forum...
    Should be about $100 if you can get it...

    This kit has a different number than 5093. In all probability, would this kit be usable on the Radiance Model 2600?

    I wouldnt trust that the part numbers stayed the same with all the crap VC has gone thru. Call little Eddie Drexel at the Cozy Cabin and have him determine the proper kit for you

    I'm thinking that the only way you may be able to do this is to change out the entire gas valve. It's gonna cost ya, but you should be able to get plenty of parts...Somebody at Monessen/Majestic/VC Tech should be able to tell you what's compatible with what you have in there now...

    Hello Karl,
    I have also been looking for the #5093 kit. What did you come up with? I realize this posting is over 3 years old, if you can help me in with this I would greatly appreciate it.
    Thank you very much, Wilbur1

    Hey Wilber1, just wondering if you had any luck with NG to LP conversion? I have a radiance and the manual says the conversion kit is part #5080. I can't seem to find one.

    Hello Bdburl,
    I haven't had any response to this post yet. I think I may have to come up with the individual parts myself. a regulator from eBay, a pilot orifice from I don't know where yet, and the main burner orifice from a website of a business located in England (I got the burner orifice # off a spec sheet I found for my stove at woodmanspartsplus.com).
    My stove is in great shape and I'm going to get it going one way or another.
    Let me know how you do. Thanks, Wilbur1

    Hello, I have a Vermont Castings Radiance model 2600 with LP conversion kit installed. I have recently upgraded my heating system and no longer need the stove, although it works and looks great. Can anybody tell me what a fair selling price would be for this stove?
