Question about Procom ML300EBC Heater

1 Answer

Runs fine for 2-4 minutes then shuts down.. auto..

I couldn't provide a 3 feet head room it is at 16 inches. It seems like as soon as the internal fan kicks in it shuts down.. Is the thermocupal cooling and then shutting down ?? OR potentially O2 sensor given the high/clearance issue.. I have installed in my garage and would like to keep it higher to eliminate the kid hazard potential issue.. Spoke with an installer and they feel it is the clearance issue.. But, I am hopeing that is not the case.. Thoughts ???

How old is this heater? does flame stay on thermocouple? what is the make and model # then i can look up some manuals of the heater and maybe give you some thoughts of what is going on. clearance could be a problem but i don't think it is.

    how long do you run the heater before you turn on fan? I talked with a procom rep. he said you do need the 36" clearance since it is a vent free. i could not find that model # on there site. I would try to lower the heater and see if that makes a difrence.

How to calculate cubic feet ?

Calculating the cubic feet of a space requires multiplying the area of the bottom times the average height. You get the bottom area by multiplying the length times the width. Remember, to get cubic feet, you need all your measurements in feet to start with.

Here is your formula:

VOLUME (in cubic feet) = Length (in feet) X Width (in feet) X Height (in feet)

If it's a rectangular room you're working with, it is all straightforward. If there are irregular walls, it may be necessary to divide up the room into rectangular sections and then add together their individual volumes. If the ceiling is sloped, you need to use the height that has the same ceiling area above it as below it. Good luck! Truly.

Why does the temperature reach 90 on the dial,whats the normal temp .

  1. The Mercedes-Benz C-Class line of compact vehicles provides the German brand with a price point model for showrooms. The C-Class enjoys the trickle down effect of the innovations launched in more expensive Mercedes models such as the E-Class and the S-Class. The W204-bodied C300 was introduced for the 2008 model year and remains in production with the same specifications as of the 2011 model year.
  2. Drivetrain
  3. The Mercedes-Benz C300 is powered by a naturally aspirated, V6 engine with 3.0 liters of displacement. This motor has a 24-valve double overhead cam (DOHC) design with a 3.46-inch bore, a 3.23-inch stroke and a compression ratio of 11.3:1. Output for this engine is rated at 228 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 221 pound-feet of torque at 2,700 rpm. Mercedes offers this compact luxury sedan with a choice of a six-speed manual or a seven-speed automatic transmission.
  4. Exterior Dimensions
  5. The C300 sits on a 108.7-inch wheelbase with an overall body length of 182.3 inches and width of 69.7 inches. The C300 Sport model has an overall height of 56.3 inches with a 60.4-inch front track and a 59.6-inch rear track, while the C300 Luxury model is 56.9 inches high with a 60.7-inch front track and a 60.8-inch rear track. Both trim levels of the Mercedes-Benz C300 offer 35.6-foot turning diameters.
  6. Interior Dimensions
  7. The Mercedes-Benz C300's cabin provides 88.2 cubic feet of passenger space with a trunk that offers 12.4 cubic feet of luggage room. Front-seat occupants are provided 37.1 inches of headroom, 41.7 inches of legroom, 54.7 inches of shoulder room and 52.3 inches of hip room. Rear-seat passengers are afforded 36.9 inches of headroom, 33.4 inches of legroom, 55.1 inches of shoulder room and 54.9 inches of hip room.
  8. Safety
  9. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (HTSA) frontal impact crash test resulted in four-star ratings (out of a possible five stars) for driver and passenger protection. This vehicle also earned a four-star rating in the NHTSA's rollover test, while the administration's side impact crash test resulted in five-star ratings. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) frontal offset impact crash test earned the C300 a "Good" overall rating, which is the highest rating given by the IIHS.

My freezer does not work all of the time. I HAVE NOTICED that the freezer get very hot at the top of the unit, I have measured this with a digital therm.and temperture was reading 136 degree F. and,the...

The first thing to check is the condenser coil at the bottom of the freezer. Take the slatted front cover off at the bottom where the compressor is located. You will see the conderser coils. This looks like a radiator with aluminum fins, about 16 by 16 inches square. Be sure the coils are clean. Since the compressor is close to the floor it pulls a lot of dust into the coils. You may need to take a long stiff bristle brush to get as much dust as possible off the coils. If this is stopped up, the unit will definately overheat very quickly. While you are down there make sure the fan behind the coils is running. There are several reasons the fan might stop running. The motor can burn out, something can impede the fan blades such as paper, or sometimes rodents. If the fan isn't running the compressor will overheat and shut off. Once you check these basic things, you may then have to address the problem of dissapating the heat. The answer to your question is yes, it will shut down if it gets too hot. You need plenty of air space behind and over the unit in your situation. The air needs to flow into the front bottom section of this unit and flow freely out the back. All commercial refrigeration is designed to operate in 75 degree areas. As your room temperature increases the efficiency of the freezer will decrease. It is not uncommon to find these units in kitchens where the temperature is 85 even 90 degrees. They will continue to work, but will probably run all the time. I would think if you could get 3 to 4 inches of space at the back of the unit and the two feet above the unit with clean coils and properly running fans, you should get better results. You MUST have free flowing air to keep the unit running. The ideal situation is to have the air flow directly through from front to the back of the compressor compartment. In your case, you may have to move the freezer away from the back wall and allow the air to flow up the back of the freezer and out over the top into the room. 2 inch holes are not enough.

The case fan should start running as soon as you turn on the computer. I would replace the fan with a higher capacity (CFM). If you have a case that can take 2 case fans, I would install the send fan. Also with the case off, check that the CPU cooler fan is functioning. With the quick shut off, I would suspect that the CPU cooler fan is not functioning. I could be impeded by dust. Vacuum and blow out any dust on the motherboard, fans and battery fan while you have the case off.
This should aleviate the shutoff problem due to overheating.
Let me know if this solves the problem.
Please rate this solutution. Thanks.

make sure your wireing is up to the job and your back presure at the pump discharge is within limits. both of these should be in your pump book that comes with your pump. If you don't have one you should be able to look it up on-line or order one from Pentair.

Hello, I can assist you.

If the unit is supposed to turn off and it doesn't, it will be necessary to check several things.

  • First, is the unit cooling properly? See the section entitled "The air is cool but doesn't seem cold enough."

  • Next, is the temperature of the room adequately cool? If the room temperature is cold enough try setting the thermostat to a higher temperature. If the unit then seems to work properly leave the thermostat set to the higher temperature.

  • If the unit is cooling properly when it is turned on and the room is not cool enough the problem is probably that the unit is trying to cool an area that is too large for its capacity. Use the following chart to find the appropriate size air conditioner to use:


100 to 150 square feet = 5,000

150 to 250 square feet = 6,000

250 to 300 square feet = 7,000

300 to 350 square feet = 8,000

350 to 400 square feet = 9,000

400 to 450 square feet = 10,000

450 to 550 square feet = 12,000

550 to 700 square feet = 14,000

700 to 1000 square feet = 18,000

If the room is heavily shaded, reduce needed capacity by 10%

If the room receives a lot of direct sun, increase needed capacity by 10%

Add 600 Btu/Hr for each person in the room if there are more than two people

If the unit is for a kitchen, increase the capacity by 4,000-6,000 Btu/Hr.

If the room size is too big for the air conditioner you have two possible choices. Either decrease the room size by shutting some doors or partitioning off an area of the room. Or, increase the BTU of the air conditioner for that room by installing a different air conditioner with a higher BTU rating.
