Question about Procom Heating & Cooling

The fan doesn't run on my procom md200tbe natural gas heater. I'm sure power source it good, etc. Is it thermostat controlled? Wondering if it's possible the temp never gets high enough for it to kick

There should be a 'snap disc' heat activated switch that is responsible for starting the fan on rise in temperature. This should occur around 140 degrees. If the fan does NOT start, it will cycle on the high limit safety, usually at 200 degrees. Some hi limits are manual reset. The flames should be two shades of blue, an inner cone of a shade darker than the larger, taller outer cone of light blue. An occasional flicker of BRIGHT orange may dance across the top of the flame, but never a YELLOW tip.

It would be hard for it to burn reasonably normally with gas pressure so low that it wouldn't produce enough heat to get to the 'fan on' temperature. There would be other issues too.

I'm just guessing the 'fan on' switch is defective or a wire is burnt off somewhere in the fan circuit. Of course, the motor could also be bad.

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!

Why does the heater turn off?


If it's thermostatically controlled, if shuts off the burner when it reaches the set temperature. Is the pilot flame going out too? These heaters require a certain amount of fresh air to operate properly. If the oxygen level gets too low, it is designed to shut off completely for your safety.

Kerosene odor from natural gas heater. gas co thinks grates break


The odor your referring to usually comes from you recently using an oil based product like paint or wood oil. Until the petroleum based product has fully dried, the open flame will seem to be the source of the odor but are really just intensifying it. If you have a gas range, see if those burners smell similar. Rags in a gas dryer also cause the odor. The gas co. will check for gas or carbon monoxide  only but this odor is neither. Good Luck and please rate my answer if it was helpful.

I have a ProCom FBN400TYLA vent free natural gas fireplace and want to convert to propane because the gas company wants too much money to hook up a line. Is this even possible?


Found the manual on line and copied directly from it:
WARNING
Models FBN400 are equipped for Natural
gas. Field conversion is not
permitted.
Models FBL400 are equipped for Propane
gas. Field conversion is not permitted

This should answer your question.
See if you can run the gas line or find someone to do it cheaper for you.

Does this have a fan attached to it or does the heat just stay around the unit. Does this have a thermostat or is it manually turn it on and off?

Is this in the garage or house?
1) Make sure no fans are operating when you do this.
An external fan can either **** the pilot off or blow it out.

2) Make sure if it has a thermostat that the sensing bulb located on the back is not picking up external
heat source.

3) If it has an external sensing bulb, put it in a bucket
of cold wtaer. Then try to light the pilot

Control knobs can be purchased from Procom customer service at 877-886-5989. If you can't find them there, call Kozy World's customer service department at 800-776-9425 and tell them you need a control knob for a KWN109 (same size heater, manufactured by Procom, so same control knob).
