Hi,
Yes, you should be able to convert that....
Contact the company directly, the distributor, of the literature that came with the unit for orifice sizing.....AND conversion kit for the regulator....

The danger of running a heater on the wrong gas is that it will produce CO (carbonmonoxide) and you will wake up dead....

I want to connect the unit to the main propane


First of all I am only concerned with your safety when I ask you to only have a qualified service tech install this heater for you. PROPANE is very dangerous if you aren't well trained in the operation/installation of gas fired equipment.Natural gas isn't quite as dangerous as it is lighter than air and will dissipate easier. Propane is heavier than air and will pool in the lowest spaces and collect there. To answer your question, yes most regulator can be adjusted, but again only by a qualified service tech because he needs to adjust the gas pressure to the equipment rated gas pressure specs. Again I am only concerned for your safety.

We have a dynna glo zero clearance for Natural Gas


Before you attempt to covert to lp. You need to check the flue. Black smoke is cause by incomplete combustion. So it may be now plug with black soot. Heat-exchanger may be damage Before you invest in a lp kit. Make sure it is worth it. To convert you need the main burner orifices and lp spring for gas value. Once you replace these parts you must adjust gas pressure, nat gas is measured at 3.2 - 3.5wc lp is measured 10.5 - 11.00 wc. In my honest opinion this is to dangerous for customer to attempt. Please a HVAC contractor inspect unit and install lp kit.

Convert from lp to natural gas


you need to go to the manuel and check if you can retrofit the heater to natural gas. there is a difference in the ORIFICE size. or check to see if there is a phone number to the manufacture and talk to them. THE BEST THING FOR YOU TO DO IS TO GET A CERTIFIED A/C PERSON TO DO IT, IT IS VERY DANGEROUS IF YOU GET THE WRONG ORIFICE SIZE !

Dyna-Glo natural gas space heater to propane gas.


Yes it is possible and a good idea. You need to have a regulator installed to reduce the pressure to the heater and this is a simple procedure. Contact your local Propane distributor and they will probably do this free to get your business.

All gas heaters can be converted from one type of gas to another, be it natural or propane. The problem is getting the orifice retrofit parts that fit that particular brand. If the manufacturer doesn't make them, then you are left with no choice.
