    Mine is doing the same thing. This is my second heater like this, because the fan motor burned up in the first one. The first one worked great. It could run indoors all day without fuming up, but the new one will gas you out in just a few minutes

I have a reddy heater 100 pro it stinks when it is going and burns my eyes

If you are using it inside, in an area that is not well ventilated, that is the problem. In addition, if this heater is in a work area and there are paint or stain fumes or anything similar, the heater is picking up those fumes and making them 100 times worse.

Also, is the heater has not been cleaned and service regularly, this also could cause the odor, due to incomplete combustion. Also, how old is the gas in the tank you're using. Old LP Gas can also cause the odors.

Those things listed above, are all things that can cause the problem you described. Resolving those should take care of the odor problem.

Reddy heater R100B gives of fumes when i use it

Not familiar with the R100B unit. Is it kerosene, propane or something else. Anytime a combustible heater gives off fumes it is not burning the fuel completely. This could be clogged filters, wrong fuel ratio or something else. Send me more info and I will try to solve your problem.

Ive got a reddy heater pro 155 when you turn it on it runs rich burns youre eyes fumes i took it to a man that works on them here local and he said the board that controls fuel mixture was bad what do you...

Are you sure it is running too rich? Your eyes will also burn if it runs too lean because the hyrocarbon and nitrous oxide balance is off. If too rich, there usually is a smokey vapor that is emited, whereas too lean does not create any seeable vapor.
If youhave a little tech to you, you can over-ride the control board and have the power go directly to the burner (as is in the older burner models). If you get the same results, then you'll know itis not the control board. Goodluck,Macgivor

Burning eyes and sore throat when heater is on

This heater should only be used in a very well ventilated area, the sore throat and burning eyes are from carbon monoxide.

Please be careful and let me know if I can provide furthur assistance.

One of two things, a high heat limit control or the flame sensor, also check your air line that runs to the heater nozzle could be cracked, not enoughair to fuel mix will make it burn dirty.
