My Reddy Heater 70,000 starts and runs fine, but it is giving off a strong odor. We put the recommended (fresh) kerosene fuel but this did not improve the strong odor.


sad to say but many if not all kerosene heaters put off offensive smell when burning . it's the nature of the beast .

When heater starts up it puffs fumes then lites


Generally, if the heater puffs fumes at start up it is because there is not instantaneous combustion.
What causes this?
  1. Worn nozzle
  2. Incorrect (click for instructions) air pump pressure
  3. Spark plug carboned
  4. fuel filter restricted
  5. Air leak or vac leak between the pump and the nozzle
Generally speaking, if the fuel is being delivered as a FOG not a SPRAY, and the spark is strong and properly oriented there will be immediate combustion at start-up.

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.

WE HAVE A HEATER THAT HAS STRONG FUMES WHEN RUNNING. THE COILED FOAM FILTER IN THE BACK FELL APART. DOES THIS HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH IT?


It sounds like you need to increase the air mixture. there is an adjustment screw in the back next to the foam filter (which you can get a new one at Ace Hardware). Dial the screw in 1/4 turn at a time until the nose cone turns about 90% red/orange and you should notice a great reduction in the fumes and a greater heat output.
