Question about Comfort Zone CZ-441 Ceramic Heater

1 Answer

I get lightheaded from the smell/fumes put out by this heater.

I have had this heater for several months (I use it occasionally) and I still am affected by the smell. It resembles fumes of a kerosene heater in it's affect on me. Should I try a non-ceramic heater instead?

    yes, it makes me feel a bit sick. lightheaded, nausaus, dizzy-like. not like the flu, though.



    I am now trying a fan-forced heater with a wire heating element. It doesn't seem to have the same smell or effect.

New lenomex has a horrible chemical smell - I sprayed waterproof on a jacket and am assume it has picked up fumes. How can I get rid of the smell. it is past its return date and need a fix, please


The heater will burn the fumes off , how long it will take I don't know.,can you put it out side and let it run till the smell goes, never spray any thing on the heater elements you could have a fire.

Your manufacturer, Toyotomiusa, recommends that you tighten all the joints on the fuel line. Your owner's manual CLICK HERE contains detailed drawings showing the location of all parts, including the fuel injector. Your unit will need to be serviced by a qualified technician if you have tightened the connectors and still smell kerosene or find wet spots under your heater. It should not leak or smell of kerosene. If you're smelling kerosene, you should not operate the unit, because the leak may cause a fire.

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 ,

Replaced rotor on my 115 ready heater now it puts out way to many fumes,it burns my eys.any suggestions


The fuel/air mixture is not right.
  • Start by setting the pump pressure to factory specs.
  • Stop all air/vacuum leaks between the air pump & nozzle
  • If the problem persists, replace the nozzle. Desa recommended annual replacement. Simply stated- the nozzle wears out to a point that the fuel is a spray rather than a fog and the fuel can't burn completely.
  • You don't state the type being burned. Diesel smells more than kerosene.

My monitor 41 smells like kerosene when it sits idle, repair man came out and told me he fixed it, but it still smells


Does it smell like raw kerosene or exhaust. If it smells like kerosene it sounds like you may have a fuel leak. If you can remove the grill, look inside and check for any kerosene in the bottom and in the tray under the heater. You should also check your fuel line for leaks. If it smells like exhaust look inside and on back of the heater for any black soot marks. There are a couple of o-rings, 1 in the exhaust connection in back of the heater and 1 in the flue pipe where the exhaust from the heater connects. There's also several gaskets in the combustion chamber that could be leaking. Hope this helps. If you need any more info, you can send me an email (nitensheaterservice@embarqmail.com).
