Hi

because of the oxygen depletion sensor, propane will automatically flow if the room gets cold.

Hope this helps

It might have been a short that caysed the propane to start. You will need to get the whole thing checked by a professional to see what caused the short and to get it fixed.

If propane started to flow from pilot orifice when no-one was home, and the safety valve dod not close, then the unit is dangerous.

This is not a repair for DIY.

Call a qualified technician.

To get parts, manuals and service support you can contact ProCom .

    That happened because of a faulty gas valve, when you turned the control off, you just turned off a defective valve that opened by itself.
    In conjunction there may be a faulty digital control that opened the defective valve.
    If the valve, or the termocouple that controls the vave, was not faulty, the valve would have closed immediately.

    When it is like that you do not take any chance, you call a qualified technician.

Can you post the part numbers here?

    I would think it is a faulty gas valve or regulator, or even one of the injectors.. It would be best to contact the manufacturer, as trying to fix the wrong part can actually cause more problems, and is a hazard.

    Have you tried contacting them yet? You can reach them toll free at 1-877-886-5989

Is there a kit to change from propane to natural gas for a Daton model # 3e239e unit heater. I have talked to Graingers and they don't know and they say the unit has been discontinued. If there is can you...


Bill, the model number is good, but won't get anybody the part number of the gas valve. Basically, there are 2 issues to address, the pilot orifice size and the pressure regulator. Get the numbers off of the gas valve (OEM numbers, brand) (likely White-Rogers or Honeywell), and search via manufacturer for conversion kit. (Generally a spring and a pilot orifice). Should you locate a kit, be prepared to have someone properly adjust the manifold pressure once installed. Also, as the make things cheaper, sometimes they are built for one fuel or the other and sealed. You may end up buying a new gas valve. Being raised in a propane plant, I recall their skill-set far superior to general HVAC guys (like myself) in this arena. As propane conversions are a part of everyday life for them (temporarily making a furnace run on propane during construction and switching over once the gas line is hooked up), they are probably a good starting point!

I had purchased this unit RMO-80LPT heater several years back, I never installed unitl this week. the sales en at the time told me it was gas/propane. Now seeing the -80LPT on the side is it propane...


The orifices for a propane heater are much smaller so you will not be able to get the natural gas to flow properly with the current orifices.

The both the natural gas and propane valve are 1/2 psi so the valve can be used but the regulator for propane is typically 8-11 inches on the wc table and the natural gas is typically 3 lbs on the wc.

You may be able to drill out the orifices in the burner and in the pilot ods and get the unit to work.

Oven pilot shuts off while cooking model H286RC-24


You may have an adjustment problem. The pilot flame needs to under the thermocoupler back from the tip just a touch. But ultimately, if the flame is good, the thermocoupler is good, you have a bad valve.

Also make sure that there is no overall gas pressure problems with the unit. A bad regulator can starve a unit for gas one minute, and work the next.

Pilot goes out!!


My manual shows three possibilities:  1) Insufficient fresh air available for combustion, so ODS kicks off gas flow 2) Low gas line pressure (should be between 11 and 14") or 3) ODS/Pilot is partially clogged.  Toll free number for ProCom is 877-886-5989.

Pilot won't ignite


For SBP12,

It will take some time for the gas to get to the unit, just turn it on and wait. It might take 5 to 10 minutes to fill the line with gas.

Pilot light goes out!


Have a technician check your gas pressure, your pilot should be nice and blue. You could start by replacing the thermocouple but I think it is gas related.Is there a pilot adjustment screw on the gas valve? If so increase the flame. Has it always done this? If so, is the model made for the specific gas being used i.e. Natural Gas or Propane and it may be operating on the wrong gas?

 

Let me know what you find, Thanks!
