Q:

I have a question about my gas grill.  Grill-n-Roast is the brand name.  We bought this grill a year before we moved out of our first home.  We only used it once there.  When we moved into our new home, the prior owners left their grill attached to a natural gas line.  It was old but instead of using our new one, we used the one they left for a few years.  It worked great and I loved not having to worry about running out of propane. 

After a few years of use, it started to get rusting and worn out.  We decided to get rid of it and hook up our new grill which has been in our basement for 4 years.  Without thinking we hooked up this gas grill to the natural gas line.  Didnt work at first but then it started to work and then not work.  So I went to Home Depot and the guy there said exactly what you are all thinking now, "you cannot hook a propane gas grill to a natural gas grill.  You have to buy a converter. " I couldnt believe we didnt think of that.   I went home and told my husband.   We looked in the manual to see if they have a converter for this brand and it didnt say anything about one.  I dont even think the company is still in business.  He did some research and decided to drill a bigger hole in the orifice.  We tried it and it worked for a little bit but would not stay lit.  Anyway, its been sitting on my deck for 3 years now and have not cooked on a grill since.  Is there a way of fixing this problem or should I just count this as a lose and throw it in the garbage?  We paid almost $400 for this grill and I'd hate to throw it out and then find out there was a solution.  Any advise would be great!  Thank you.
