How do I convert natural gas to propane

You'll need to change out the burner orifices, (propane orifices require smaller holes), add a propane regulator and hose (these can be bought as a combo) along with a 20# propane cylinder. I would recommend taking it to your local propane dealer that sells grills and see if they can help you with either the parts or the conversion itself.

I have a full propane gas cylinder for my grill in my garage. It is very cold in the garage and I'm getting a propane smell. Does the cold effect this or is there probably another problem?

We live and work in South Florida so I'm assuming what we use "very cold" to describe (below 70) is different from what you're referring to. An LP cylinder is full of very cold liquid propane. Heat (and pressure which causes heat) causes the liquid to vaporize and the vaporized liquid propane is what we burn as fuel. I have experience with some building codes far north of here which have a lot of rules for safety features affecting the use of LP fuel because the fear of reconstituting vaporization into a flammable liquid could cause serious environmental damage.
In the heat, it is common for the tank to release some vaporized gas when the pressure becomes too great which is why all LP techs will advise never leave a cylinder in an enclosed area -- the tank safety features do release vaporized propane in order to release pressure...but this is in hot climates.
In a (very!) cold area the only problem I can think of is slow gas pressurization but we have clients who have used common LP cylinders in zero-degree weather without trouble so I really doubt that.
Make sure the tank is not connected to anything. A damaged o-ring can cause a leak but the cylinder just sitting on the floor by itself should not release anything unless it gets heated beyond the available pressure.

Under very cold conditions, the cylinder relieves internal pressure which accounts for the odor you detect. It is not a safe practice to store propane cylinders in an enclosed space.

Cold shouldn't present any special hazard to a propane cylinder. Just make sure the valve is fully off. You can check for leaking with a little soapy water solution around the valve - look for bubbles. If any doubt, remove from enclosed space.

When commected to 20 lbs tank the pilot light does not stay on; however, when connected to a 1 lb propane bottle everything works propertly. I have replaced the fuel filter, I have tried using different...

The new 20lb LPG cylinders now have what called an OPD Valve. Reconnect to a 20lb cylinder and turn the tank valve on very very slowly, This will help prevent the OPD Valve from locking up the heater's regulator. Your 1lb cylinder is not required to have this OPD Valve.

By the way, this happens quite frequently with LP Gas Portable Grills.

I have 3 natural gas fire places. i would like to know if i can change it to propane. i'm thinking i would just have to change the logs and hook a tank up outside. can some tell me if this would work.

Typically gas log sets are factory made for either natural gas or propane. If you want to use them on propane you need to find out if a LP conversion kit is available for your brand/model #. Ask the place where you bought them or ask the company that installed them (if you didn't put them in yourself). If they can be changed over to propane, then you will need to buy the propane tanks, regulator and gasline or just have your local propane company put in a pair of 100# cylinders for each fireplace (or 420# cylinder to service all 3 fireplaces) with an auto-switchover regulator. They can also do the conversion, if the conversion kits are available. Let me now if you have any other questions. Douglas

Won't start

if the propane cylinder is almost empty you maybe getting a concentration of murcapton(spelling?)this odorant is added to propane so it has an odor.when the gas gets low in the cylinder you can pull more odorant that may have settled in the bottom of the tank over time. there are other reasons since you are dealing with an unvented heating product , such as other odors fron oils,cleaning products, paint, etc. there could other problems so you may want to take it to your local propane store. jr

Procom ML300TBA Heater: Liquid or Gas

Propane exist in a liquid state when it is under pressure in a propane cylinder. When the valve on the propane cylinder the pressure on the liquid is reduced and the propane reverts back to gas state.

Also, regarding the tank you need....
the owners manual probably states what size you will need but, with most heater like the one you have it will require a 100 lb tank (approximately 25 gallons). You will also need an inline regulator set to 11" to 14" of water column between the tank and the heater.

How to shut off a coleman 16.4 oz propane cylinder

These cylinders seal themselves, just remove it by unscrewing it. Never store grill with cylinder still attached, then it could leak out leaving you an empty bottle or worst, exploding if near an ignition source.
