Question about Empire ECS BF-30 Infra-Red Wall Mounted Panel Heater
We have the Empire ECS BF-30 Ventless Heater. There are no leaks or smells when the unit is off, however, when the unit is on and burning, the gas smell is prevalent. The smell since we first installed the unit has gotten stronger.
We are wondering if there is an adjustment to reduce the smell of gas (as we understand there will always be a slight smell).
We reside near Brighton, Michigan and if this unit requires service, is there a recommended technician for us to call?
Thank you very much for your time and help...
Incomplete combustion could be a major health and safety issue. Seek qualified help and do not use until then.

SOURCE: natural gas heater
I'm not a gas expert, however if I could offer an alternative possibility: I recently opened a gas heater to find a child (I assume) had inserted a CD and a pen into it. If the soot is more than a short term problem this is obviously not the cause but it may help some people.

if it giving off soot then it is wrong it sounds like the air mixture is wrong and the flames are light back to the injector that would be the woosh , no heat er should give off soot if combustion is correct

HI first check for a gas leak at pilot , check pilot injector sounds like the pilot injector is too big for some reason over pressure is also a factor
