    It isn't being converted. It is a dual-fuel vent-free appliance. The valve has two outlets. Yes, you are correct, in that you turn a handle-- that changes the spring pressure and send the gas through the proper outlet. However, if you'll look, there are also two pilot assemblies.

    It was designed and rated as a dual-fuel vent-free appliance and it will have some common parts, but it will also have 2 of a few things.

    A tried and true original vent-free appliance with one valve, one regulator, and one pilot assembly can't be converted.

    I don't think any one is trying to hear me out. Yes I heard you "I'm going to pass out and blow my self up and burn to ashes". I know not funny.

    Follow this. At the VC factory 10 years ago the Stardance 30k btu gas stove assembly line. 100 stoves a day go through the line. Every stove is exactly Identical down to the smallest screw. The only difference is at the very last step the robot drops a NG setup in one box and a LPG setup in the other. That is the only difference.
    That hole assembly is held in by 2 screws and it lifts right out. I know this because the stove came disassembled new. Are you understanding my point?
    Some one hear already pointed out that the only difference part was the firebox. Which is what I want to change.

    I talked to two of the bigger propane suppliers in the state and they told me they will do it. So I guess I'll see what happens once they deliver and set up the tank. I'm sure they'll say anything to pick up a new customer.

    We have a new EPA rated wood stove in the living room. The gas fire place is going in the sunmud room complete opposite side of the house.
    If they change their minds I'll sell.

    apples and oranges... but since you brought it up..you can convert your wood fireplace to vent free logs...but ...you cant convert the "vent free" logs from NATURAL GAS TO PROPANE.
    simple as that...
