Charmglow Ventless Wall heater stinks - Literally!

I bought this heater a year ago and had it installed by a professional. It smelled awful when we fired it up, but he said it would burn off. After a few days, it still smelled, so I quit trying. Here it is another winter, and I'm angry at the money I've laid out for the purchase, installation, and trouble calls. No one seems to have any ideas, and you can't find any info on the Desa website (from the side of the box). It doesn't even list the owner's manual, which I've lost, of course. It doesn't sound as though it would help very much even if I had it!

The model # is CGL300TB, and the serial # is CGO5018885

Some suggestions that may help: a sulfer type smell is the additive in the natural gas, kind of like eggs. if this is your smell, you have a gas leak. if any other propellents like hair spray, furniture polish, air fresheners are nearby, the vapors are burned by the stove and you can smell those, as well as a fine white powder building up on the stove. if a paint smell, then check to see if the back wall of the stove paint is burning away. if so, you can speed the process with a small hand held torch used for plumbing. when the paint is gone, the smell is gone. good luck.

I bought a free standing Charmglow Ventless Fireplace about 6 years ago. . . I can't find the manual


Regina, if you can provide the correct Model Number for your fireplace, I may can help you. Without it, there's not much anyone can do, since the manufacturer, DESA International has been out of business for 4 years.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

You need to clean it out. Take the wall heater down and use a air compressor to clean out the gas system. Also clean the orifice out. Make sure that the chamber is clean and clear of spider webs and dust.

Ventless gas heater smells like kerosene


It is posible that your heater is burning fumes from paint, varnish or stain and some times carpet cleaners or other household cleaners. I work for a utility company. We get called to homes for a lighter fluid/kerosene smell quit often. Most of the time it is from the fumes burning off on a standing pilot gas oven. The odor collects in the oven and is released in the customers face when they open the oven door. This will happen with any open flame appliance when exposed to these fumes.
