AIR MIXTURE ADJUSTMENT IS CRITICAL ON ALL GAS BURNING HEATERS. SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE INSUFFICIANT CUMBUSTION AIR WHICH WILL CAUSE A WHITE AND LAZY FLAME .... FLAME SHOULD BE BRIGHT BLUE WITH NO WHITE OR YELLOW TIPS ON THE FLAME.

Reddy heater 75 125000 propane heater. Fan comes on, have spark, smell propane and still won't fire


There are couple possible reasons your unit refuses to fire; some units tjis big have to be level, this is a saftey feature bulit in if it is not level, it will not fire, ( it believes it has been tipped over), the smell of propane could also mean it has a leak on your line connection ( bad fitting, not sealed properly), finally check the temperature sensor may be bad and need replacing......

I have a rlp100 heater that works well but now has an annoying smell. It also burns your eyes some. It is 3 years old and hasn,t been used much. What can I do to get rid of the smell?


The smell is unburned propane and the burning of the eyes is caused by carbon monoxide. My heater (RLP100) does the same and I was able to measure the carbon monoxide at 95 ppm (deadly). I have yet to figure out what exactly is happening. Tried a new regulator/hose from a new unit - no help. Also pulled apart the burner nozzle and cleaned the holes - helped a bit. Next step is the valve.

Smells like it is running rich and it does not seem to be getting as hot as my other one strong smell and burns your eyes


Whatever it is sounds like you should clean it... carbon and soot build up in exhaust... if it is a ventless (which is info you should have asked about) than you will find that it is the second heater in line and is starved for fuel.

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.
Carbon monoxide is potentially fatal.  I cannot express how dangerous this is if used in a house or garage without the doors open
Please be careful and let me know if I can provide furthur assistance.

Reddyheat rlp 100 will not stay lit, strong gas smell.


I had the same problem with my Reddy Heater PRO 100. It is the 20Lb bottle causing your problem.
I Put a 100LB bottle on and ended my problems.

Burning eyes, can't breathe.


These produce large amounts of carbon monoxide, so you essentially are poisoning yourself. Leave the garage door open part way when using it.
