SOURCE: how to locate paraglow radiant 40 user manual on

Toyo Stoves, Kero Stoves & Paraglow Radiant Stoves are almost identical. Actually, I think one manufacturer makes all three. The link below has about 70 Owners Manuals in pdf formats that you can download and print. Look for Radiant 40, there are 3 listings for that model number. Look at all three for the one that matches your model Paraglow.

I recently purchased a Holmes HQH319 heater. I want to use it in a room with tropical birds. Birds are very sensitive to chemical fumes. Is there any Teflon or other coatings on this heater that that may...


You would have to contact the makers of the heater to give you a clear answer on that , most heaters smell when first put on from new and you would have to burn this off first ,

Try cleaning first. Go to walmark and buy a can of air ( use to clean computer boards) and blow out each rack and see if that don't stop it.

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.

Radiator coolant fumes inside cabin


There is a chance you may have an engine bay coolant leak and the fumes are being drawn in through the heater ductwork so verify that first.
But....
Coolant fumes inside usually come from a leaking heater core. The heater core is like a small radiator inside your vehicle that gives off heat.
Problems like this arise from coolant that has not been flushed and creates an electrolysis that eats away at the material causing a leak.
This is not a job for a do it yourself guy(or girl). A pro could easily spend 5 to 7 hours changing this one.
Make sure whoever does this repair flushes the system.

Back flow of fumes


your on demand water heater is supposed to be on a seperate vent, directly outside,and not closer then 60 inches from any other vent, the on demand pulls cold air in on the outer side of the vent and blows the hot air out the center of the flue

Gas smell during startup of GE hot water heater


yes, provided there is no excessive build up. The gas and air mix must be right before the mixture will ignit. a household stove will do this each time it's turned on. That's why yhe igniter sparkk hits about three times before it lights. proper venting will confine any fumes to the cimbustion chamber to be carried out the exhaust. If the odor is strong then have the appliance checked for safety sake.

Fumes


Generally a kerosene heater will put out a strong smell for a few minutes after it is first lit, and for a few minutes after you put it out. Generally, it will be much stronger after it's extinguished. I usually extinguish mine and immediately set it out on the concrete porch to keep the smell out of the house.

Opening a window for a few minutes right after lighting the heater will help with the fumes at startup.

If your heater is constantly putting off fumes, even after burning for a little while, then it may be time to burn the wick dry. This should be done every few months anyway as general maintenance.

First, siphon all the fuel from the tank. You will need to disassemble the heater and gain access to the top of the wick. Raise the wick to it's highest point and use your fingers or a flat nosed pair of pliers to break up the hard black tar coating on the top of the wick. The smaller you can break the coating, the faster it will burn off. Once thats done, reassemble your heater, raise the wick to it's highest point and light it. It will probably burn for an hour or two because it will first burn all of the fuel soaked up in your wick, but then it will burn off the tar. Finally, it will go out.

After this, you should be ok, to refill your heater and relight as normal.

If you find when you disassemble it that the wick has a hard tar ring down inside, you may have a hard time breaking that up and cleaning it. It is possible... But I would probably just replace the wick.
