I have an INSTA-FLAME fireplace model# DVS2RP-1 and we just changed over to natural gas from propane. However, INSTA-FLAME (CFM INC) is no longer around. What are my options of getting my fireplace to work with natural gas?
on November 9, 2012
Answer:CFM is no longer in business - their holdings were taken over by the Majestic corporation. Unfortunately, per Majestic there is no longer a conversion kit available for your Insta-Flame fireplace. Fuel conversion can simply not be done. I apologize for the bad news.

We want to convert our fireplace from propane to natural gas. Where can I get the parts I need to convert a Master Flame Inc Aspen Industries Inc model # El-24-LP RADCO listing # 1280 complies with LA-RGA #2-72 serial #2393?

Unfortunately, we are not a dealer for the master flame series of logs. As such, we do not carry the appropriate conversion kit. I recommend visiting the manufacturer website to locate a dealer that may offer the conversion kit. The manufacturer website can be accessed here

I have a DESA Vent Free propane fireplace, model number CF26PR and I am putting in natural gas in my home. Can this be converted?
By Kevin E. - Fireplace Specialist on March 1, 2013
Answer:Per the manufacturer's literature for this appliance, it is an unvented fireplace. Unfortunately, unvented or vent free appliances cannot be converted from one gas type to another. There is no conversion kit available to modify this unit.

I own an Appalachian Natural gas fireplace and want to convert it to an LP gas Model# UV-36FPN. Do you sell what I would need?
By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on November 19, 2013
Answer:It appears that you have an unvented log set. If this is the case, there is no conversion kit, as vent-free gas appliances cannot be field-converted. We apologize for this inconvenience.

We have a vent free propane gas burner and log insert in our family room fireplace and we want to convert to natural gas. Do you have a conversion kit?
By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on July 30, 2013
Answer:Unfortunately, no. Vent-free gas appliances cannot be field-converted for fuel type. We apologize for this inconvenience.

We have a gas FP but the gas line coming from the meter to the house has a leak. We want to convert it to propane use but don't know what we need to do so. The FP has a chimney stack on the roof for venting. We can't find anyone in our area that has knowledge of gas FP installations. We just want to be able to use propane, as getting the gas line repaired is in excess of 900.

Retrofitting this fireplace for LP use may indeed be a suitable solution. The log set will need to be converted to accept LP. As the LP tank cannot be stored indoors, a gas line will need to be run from your new LP tank to the fireplace. A certified professional should be hired to complete this job.

I have a wood burning fireplace and would like to convert to a propane gas fireplace. Any ideas?
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on January 4, 2013
You have a few options to consider, depending on if your fireplace is a brick/masonry unit or a manufactured (metal) model. If you prefer, please reply with your full fireplace dimensions (front width, rear width, opening height, depth, etc.), as well has how you want to control the unit (on/off remote, variable flame remote, wall switch or manual), and we will be happy to offer some recommendations. You may also use the following articles on our website for more information about your choices:

I have a Monessen DLX24 propane log set that I want to convert to gas, what do I need to buy? I also have a vantage hearth VD1824PR that I want to convert to gas.
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on March 8, 2013
Answer:Because of the potential dangers that can occur from incorrect conversion, most manufacturers do not allow field conversion or produce conversion kits for vent free appliances.
I have checked the manufacturer information for both of these vent free log sets and neither of them allow for conversion. The units would need to be replaced with a natural gas version.

By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 26, 2012
Answer:Unfortunately, conversion kits for this unit are no longer available. Martin was purchased by Majestic and their product line was discontinued.

I am looking for a natural gas-to-propane conversion kit for my Monessen gas fireplace. The model number is DFS42NMA. Is there a kit for my stove? The installer from the gas company said the stove is set up for natural gas and I need a conversion kit.
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on December 31, 2012
Answer:Your model appears to be in the line of DFS vent-free units manufactured by Monessen. If this is the case, unfortunately there is no conversion kit available as vent-free units cannot be field-converted. We apologize for this inconvenience.

Can I convert the Napoleon GVF36P to natural gas? Which kit would I use?
By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on December 11, 2012
Answer:Unfortunately, your vent-free fireplace cannot be field-converted to natural gas. The entire unit would need to be replaced, as vent-free appliances are designed only for use with the fuel type they are shipped ready to use.

I have a TEMCO fireplace made by CFM Corporation, model 36TDVN direct vent top. It is a natural gas fireplace, but I have propane. Do you have a converter that I can use to take it from natural gas to propane?
on November 9, 2012
Answer:It is a bit difficult to find replacement components for the Temco line. This is due to their going out of production several years ago. However, their parent company, CFM, was absorbed by Majestic. As such, there is a chance that there is still a conversion kit available at Majestic for your Temco fireplace. I will contact our supplier and see what may still be available.
I will be in touch with what they report. Please let me know if you have any questions in the meantime.

Do you sell “fireplace adaptors”? I’m try to follow the installation instructions for my stove.

While we do not have "fireplace adaptors" per se, we do have tees designed for use with our liner kits. For example, the below tee features a removed 10" take off:

This tee requires a separately purchased cap:
