Gas Orifice Converts Weber Barbecue Grill To LP or NG.

Converting any barbecue from one fuel type to another fuel type involves changing the Regulator, Hose, and all Orifices.

Every control valve has an orifice but the entire appliance will use only one regulator. The regulator sets the gas pressure. Depending on the amount of pressure in the manifold we will drill a hole in the brass orifice to limit the BTU flow through the orifice into the burner matching Safety rating for the appliance. To check the orifice measure flat-to-flat diameter of the orifice. This is best done with a wrench or socket -- Not a ruler or tape measure.
Drilled Orifices Cannot Be Returned. Once the orifices are drilled, we do not have the ability to stock them in our inventory. We drill the orifices per order so Please make the correct measurements as described to select the correct orifices or Ask for assistance. Conversion parts are customized to order and Cannot Be Returned.

Replacement orifice to convert Weber Genesis and Spirit models before 2010 when Side-Mounted control valves fit 3/8 wrench/socket size.

Includes E, EP, S sizes 210, 310, 320 models and Silver, Gold, Platinum sizes A, B, C barbecues and older Numerically named models with control knobs on the side of the fire box.

Orifices ship blank or drilled calculated by hose/regulator selection to ship with orifices. Orifices ordered without a hose and regulator will ship as blanks and will need to be drilled by the installer.

Convert Weber Gas Type
The older Weber barbecue models with the knobs and control valves on the side and the new Weber Genesis models with the control knobs in the front of the barbecue both use this orifcie to determine the amount of gas flowing into the burner. In order to convert a Weber barbecue grill to use Natural Gas or to use Propane we will need to change all the orifices in the barbecue.

Remove the orifice in the tip of the control valve. The orifice hex-head should measure 3/8 inch across ther diameter from flat-to-flat.

This orifice fits the models that came before and after the Genesis Silver, Platinum and Gold models which use a slightly larger orifice.

Is Your orifice Not a 3/8 Hex Head Diameter? Go back to full list of orifices And All Weber BBQ Parts.

This 88832 orifice was used in Weber Spirit and Genesis models with side-mounted control valves Only when the original orifice is three-eighths hex-head diameter.

These models also used 88315 orifices but without a "Weber" database of item numbers we can only know which orifice to use by checking the original in the original valve.

Convert Weber Gas Type
New orifices are available for Weber barbecues and this particular orifice 88832 fits older models with the controls on the Right Side Of The FireBox Only When the Original Orifice Measures 3/8" Hex-Head Diameter.

Some control valves thread into the manifold and some valves bolt through the manifold but check the orifice hex-head diameter to select this orifice or the 88315 which fits the same models that have a smaller hex-head threaded into the tip of the valve.

Orifice replacements are New from the manufacturer and will ship Blank unless ordered for a specific model and with the appropriate gas regulator. The regulator Must ship with the orifices because the regulated gas pressure is what determines the size of the hole drilled in the orifice in order to match the BTU Safety Certification.

Drilled Orifices Cannot Be Returned. We stock tremendous quantity of orifices and these new, blank orifices are drilled to match your regulator selection and your barbecues BTU Certification. Fortunately orifices are inexpensive. Check The Size, Ask For Help, or risk buying orifices twice.

Conversion Instructions Weber BBQ Use NG or LP

Replacement orifice used to convert Weber Genesis and Spirit A, B, C models made before 2010 -- some several decades before!! -- only when side-mounted valve has original orifice measuring 3/8 wrench/socket diameter.

Orifices are customized for every order shipping blank or drilled calculated by hose and regulator selection. NG/LP fuel conversion parts are customized and cannot be returned.

Spirit and Genesis BBQ's were labelled Silver, Gold, Platinum model A - B - C and later Changed to E, EP, S models 210, 310, 320. Orifices will be either 3/8 or 9/32 inch wrench/socket size.

Weber Tank Scale. The Weber tank scale supports the common 5 gallon (20 Lbs) LP cylinder. Inner gauge shows LP tank fill level. Although easily installed and convenient, the scale is considered Mandatory by Weber because immobilizing the LP cylinder in position is a prerequisite of the CSA safety certification and Residential UL Listing.

Denoting LP levels is convenient but the actual purpose of this scale is Safety and is Required for Weber to include on All LP models.

weber signature series valve orifice burner conversion

The burner slides onto the valve so the orifice is inside the burner. In order to convert the type of gas burning in the barbecue we need to slide the manifold with valves out of the burner to inspect and replace the orifices when we also install the correct hose and regulator.

Orifices Must Be Ordered with a NG or LP regulator that will be installed on the same barbecue as the orifices because the regulator determines the size of the hole drilled in the orifice in order for the appliance to meet the BTU limitation Certified Safe.

weber valve orifice

The company "Weber" is today does not publish item numbers for orifices and does not make orifices available. This is why we have to select the orifice by checking the physical hex-head diameter for these pre-2010 Spirit and Genesis models.

The gas line attaches to the manifold which is simply a pipe that fills with gas and has the control valves attached so the valves can draw gas from the manifold pipe. The tip of the control valve that slides into the burner is the orifice. The orifice has a small hole drilled in the tip. The size of the hole in the orifice determines whether the barbecue will burn LP or NG and what BTU setting will burn.
