Question about Procom ML300TBA Heater

1 Answer

Procom ML200TBA It sounds like one of you out there might be able to help. I bought a ventless ProCom ML200TBA for my shed. I planned to supply LP gas from a 20 lb gas grill tank. I'm connecting to the heater with a hose/regulator that I have from a defunct propane heater. Gas flows freely from the open end. But when I connect it to the regulator in the heater, the pilot won't light. Any ideas would be appreciated. Gary

Re: Procom ML200TBA

Propane appliances usually run on 10-11 inches of water column, this is about 1/2 pound of pressure. If the regulator you have is not rated for delivering gas at that rate, you will need to find one that does. If your regulator is rated for more than the 11 inches, most likely you could have damaged the appliance regulator that came with the heater. Check the propane pressure specified by the heater manufacture against the rated supply of your regulator and see if they match. Make sure the heater is rated for Propane and NOT Natural Gas. Check to see if the gas valve on the appliance is in the operate position and all valves are open. Bleed off the air in the gas line by holding down the pilot switch and keep attempting to light the pilot. It could take you a few minutes. If you hear and smell gas but the unit will still not light, don't chance at getting hurt, call a technician. Look to make sure there are no safety switch that may have triggered off not allowing the gas valve to operate. And make sure there is no obstruction in the heater?s gas valve blocking off the supply of gas. Always exercise caution when it comes to gas and if you are uncomfortable, call a qualified gas technician.

I have a procom ventless fireplace heater and the pilot light will not stay lit

Sounds lie you need to replace the bimetallic strip by the pilot light. If that is bad the main gas nor the pilot will stay on.

I have purchased a Procom ventless heater (ML250TPA) and need to know if I have to put a low pressurer reg. on the system outside or will this model heater reduce the propane pressurer coming from my 500...

This heater is designed to work with LP gas. You will need a regulator from the tank to the heater set at 11"wc .that's standard for any LP gas system. Your existing piping system should have a regulator already outside of your house before the gas inters your home .If it does not then you will have to install one. The regulator can be inside but you will have to run a vent line in copper from the regulators vent to the outside of your house.

Hope this helps ......

My procom heaters pilot stays on fine but when i turn it to on the flame goes down and heater goes out

I wold check gas pressure to your heater. If it's natural gas it should be about 4 ounces at gas valve. If it's propane/L.P. it shoul be about 7 ounces. If you have a gauge that you can check the pressure with there is usually a port on gas valve that is plugged and usually stamped test. Hope this helps you, Thanks

Procom MN300HPA ventless heater conversion

You need to first get a regulator which will go between the propane tank and the burner. You will need to know the burner capacity in BTU/HR and the pressure required. All of this can be found on the furnace specification plate or on the gas valve. It is a no brainer Circut!
