    Greetings

    My father gave me a Jotul DV45 Spirit fireplace insert. He was using in his home, and had it set up for LP gas. I want to use it in my house, and have Natural Gas. I am having problems finding a orifice changeover kit.
    Can anybody help me out with this.

    Thanks

    Any HVAC shop should be able to get you one.
    Possibly a propane supplier might have one. When someone switches to propane from NG they usually swap them out.

    You should find a Jotul dealer in your area to see if the kits are still available.
    Some of the older gas valves aren't manufactured anymore & parts for
    them are almost non-existant. The other problem is that everything from
    Jotul - at least NOW - comes as an NG burner & has the LP conversion kit
    shipped with the appliance. Those that HAVE been converted to LP are generally
    not re-converted back to NG & there are some parts from the NG kit that, once
    removed, cannot be re-used. Have the model & serial number of the unit available
    when you contact the dealer, as Jotul sometimes changes components during the
    manufacturing process & the only way to determine what parts go in what unit depend
    upon the serial number...
