SOURCE: how do I convert vanguard VMH26TPA wall heater

You would have to get a conversion kit, which usually
is new orfices and a spring that goes into the gas valve. The kit would probably be cheaper than buying a gas valve and the orfices seperately

SOURCE: change from natural gas to propane

You could do it but it would be very expensive. You would need to change the ODS pilot and the gas valve itself. I am not sure even then it would work correctly. These are not conversion ready.

First, can you smell gas when you push for the pilot? If yes, look at the tube where the pilot gas comes out. Sometimes there is a small hole or 2 in the tube before the opening where the gas comes out. This is to allow air to mix with the gas. They sometimes become plugged with lint or dust. Check for this and let me know what you find.

Pilot light won't light on ventless fireplace


Ventless Gas logs, Vanguard, VS30PR. Propane gas
Pilot light stays lit various times, sometimes for several days then other times for a few minutes. Lights best when temp outside is below freezing. Pilot flame appears to receive too much air. How do you adjust the pilot flame? Is this done using two screws marked A & E? Do you have suggestions?
Thanks,
Ed

VN18TB PILOT LITE GOES OUT STAY LITE TILL HEATER COMES ON AFTER THE HEAT RUNS AND TURNS OFF THE PILOT LITE SHUTS OFF NATURAL GAS VANGUARD


Sounds like a weak thermocouple. With the extra heat of the main burner running it can keep the pilot solenoid open...without it it fails shut. Try replacing the thermocouple. (small rod the pilot flame burns against with a skinny copper tube going to gas valve).

Pilot light wont lit up


Change The Thermostat Cause If Your Getting Gas But The Water Heater Doesn't Detect The Heat It Will Close The Valve. When Lighting You Hold The Button Down For About 30 seconds so the thermostat will detect flame and stay lit. Check To Make Sure The Thermostat Is Where It Should Be. Heres A Picture Of What It Will Look Like.
