Question about Procom ML300TBA Heater

1 Answer

Procom fireplaces I like the look and simplicity of the Procom vent free fireplaces, but I am concerned about using a vent free appliance. Can they be converted to direct vent, or is a similar product available in the $300 to 500 range?

Empire makes a wall heater that is direct-vent that looks similar to vent- free wall heaters. Here is a link to a website that sells their products... http://www.mastersalesonline.com/empire/index.html. I am not sure of the prices you will need to call the on-line store. I hope this helps you.

How do I resync my ProCom remote with my ProCom Vent Free Fireplace? I have an older model, SSU320RHL-GB.


I ran into this same problem yesterday while I was trying to get my used unit up and functioning.

If you don't switch from pilot to off and wait about a minute before turning it to the "electric" mode, the remote will NOT light the unit.

Procom pilot light wont light


Make sure the gas valve is on. The thermocouple may need to be cleaned in order for the pilot to stay lit.

Where can i find a downloadable user guide,and a service manual for this model..also im tryig to find the right regulator for this model..does anyone know where i can find it??thanks!!


Here's a link to the Procom Owner's Manual website. However, the Model Number you listed doe not sound like a Procom Model #.

Also, all vent-free heaters, fireplaces, gas log sets, etc come with the regulator built-in. Are you trying to replace one you think doesn't work? Or are you trying to convert it from one gas type to another?

If it's the latter, there is no conversion approved for vent-free gas appliances. Plus, if you could, it would take more than just the regulator to do it. Totally unsafe to do.. Please don't attempt it.

I have a black soot on all my walls through the whole house especially the exterior walls. I believe it is caused by my propane fireplace. Im not sure if it is not ventilating properly or what the problem...


Is a Vented or Vent-free gas fireplace? I really suspect it's Vent-free (ventless) as a vented unit, unless the direct vent is clogged exhaust everything, including 85% of the heat out side.

Here are the things that will cause a Vent-free Gas Fireplace to soot.

  • Not having the fireplace cleaned and serviced, at least annually by a qualified technician.
  • Misplaced logs that impinge the main burner flames.
  • Running a ceiling fan at the wrong speed and in the wrong direction while fireplace is burning.
  • Burning scented candles while burning the fireplace.
  • Low Gas Pressure to the burner.
Here are the solutions to the above listed causes:

  • Have the fireplace cleaned and serviced.
  • Check your Owners Manual concerning the proper placement of each log,
  • Run the ceiling fan Counter Clockwise and at the slowest speed. The fan on the side of the switch should be in the UP position for Winter and Down for Summer.
  • Scented candles soot any way. Add the warm moist heat of the Gas Fireplace and they'll soot 50 times worse. The scent is not natural, it has an alcohol base like after shave & cologne. Stop burning scented candles. It has been proven that they greatly contribute to indoor air pollution.
  • Low gas pressure causes incomplete combustion, which causes the burner to soot. Have it checked by your propane provider.
Based on my 15 years in the hearth and home business and having sold and installed hundreds of these appliances, I am will to bet, it's a cleaning and servicing issue or misplaced logs.

Hope this helps you solve your sooting problem. I woud really like to know how it works out for you.

Have a customer who has model # 1403622, when not in use the customer gets cold air coming inside from outside. suggestions?


This is a recurring problem with all Direct Vent Gas Appliances. Whether it be a Direct Vent Gas Fireplace or a Direct Vent Heater like you customer has. Not to mention, that they are very inefficient.

Unfortunately, there are only 2 solutions: Cover the direct vent outside when not in use. Of course, that means remembering to uncover it before each use. The other solution and the most efficient is replacing it with a properly sized Vent-Free Gas Heater or perhaps a Vent-free Gas Fireplace depending on what type and size room the present heater is in.

The following website as a lot of information o these types of products and how to properly size them.

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.

Delayed lighting


It sounds like the orifice is missing or is the wrong type (LP) on the back burner.

Looking for hook up information For Canada


The Underwriter Laboratories of Canada are an offshoot of the Underwriters Labs of the U.S. They test consumer products for safety. The Procom space heater is advertised as a vent free heater fired with propane. As it is vent free I doubt you can convert it into a vent type appliance. When propane burns, it produces carbon dioxide and water vapor. It must be used with adequate ventilation for combustion. It consumes oxygen to burn. If burning it without ventilation it lowers the amount of oxygen in your room creating a hazard to human life. this is what kills. Perhaps the ULC standards are more stringent then the US but I suppose if the unit has the United States UL emblem, using it in Canada, you may need a direction from your local extension service before you can use it.
