Yes. the orifice has a tiny hole in it.It is located at the tip of the pilot before the flame, and at the tip of the injectors. Natural gas and propane molecules are different sizes in the vapor state. The orifice regulates how much vapor comes out. You need to change the orifice in the pilot and the burner injectors for it to work properly. If you don't you will get a very large flame or a very small one, depending which way convert from. If you have the papers from the company that made the heater, they should be able to help you changer over. You also may need to make some adjustment if you are at high altitude, 2,000' or more, as the air is thinner (less oxygen) so the regulator needs to be set to higher volume.

SOURCE: natural gas conversion
I have a similar problem. But, I want to convert it to propane. I have a 5 burner vent free modelMN300HPA. If your are handy. I would consider shipping you the parts inside mine to install in yours. These parts are very simple to remove after removing the access panels. I have taken mine out already. Called procom then to no less find out the propane parts needed are not sold by them. I think only the injectors (5) the main valve (regulator) and the pilot are the only things need to change. When taking out the pilot this is easly done, By removing the nut on the supply line. And then bending back the retaining tabs to then slide back the pilot then it comes out of the assembly bracket. Injectors are simply removed. Regulator located at the bottom is a simple remove. The only other item that might be questionable would be the valve that selects the amount of burners you would like to operate. And I would think this would be the same and not need removing. Let me know if I can help. I would like to get mine converted to propane. Thanks Tom

yes, have a qualified technician do the conversion. You will need to order the conversion kit. It is listed in the back of the installation manual (available on-line).

Yes it is possible and a good idea. You need to have a regulator installed to reduce the pressure to the heater and this is a simple procedure. Contact your local Propane distributor and they will probably do this free to get your business.
