Use of these systems have been banned in some areas, so check with local authorities first. They present a higher fire risk then other type of heaters. Secondly always read the manufactures manuals for proper set up and operation.
To answer your question all kerosene heaters emit a threatening amount of carbon monoxide. However an accurate combustion analysis performed by a licensed tech will tell you exactly how much regardless of what the manufacturer may claim. Also different types of kerosene will emit different levels. So definitely read the instructions. Best of luck!

Dyna-Glo kerosene forced heater burning eyes and will not stay lit with top on


Do NOT use it indoors. If it's burning your eyes it's carbon monoxide from an inefficient burn and it will kill you. Kerosene flow is not working correctly. Cannot diagnose without examining. I'd recommend taking it thoroughly apart and cleaning all parts (especially internally of parts... anywhere kerosene flows). You can use "Brake Kleen" (or any brand) from an auto parts store. It evaporates quickly and leaves no residue.

Carbon monoxide poisoning?


The problem is that it is burning up all the oxygen in the room. That is what makes the CO level high. He needs to either leave a door, or something open, and possible even a little fan to keep the Oxygen that is IN the room mixed. I figure he is working low, and there is not much air moving around him.
Get fresh air INto the room and the CO will not be a bother.

I have just purchase a kerosene fan force (reddy) space heater ,we use it in a very drafty garage,but the strong smell of kerosene fumes are more then we can stand.we have tried scent additives but nothing...


Try running it outside where the oxygen level is 21%. Carbon Monoxide will kill you The smell might be the product if incomplete combustion CARBON MONOXIDE, or the fuel line pressure needs to be adjusted.

If you still get the smell the unit may defective. If you want to try adjusting the fuel line pressure, you will need a low pressure gauge 0-15 psi.remove a plug from the heater and set the pressure at the documented pressure, the other plug with the hole in it is the adjustment.

Does it produce any dangerous gas....?


all gas heaters produce obnoxious fumes. some more than others. natural gas produces carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide, hydrogen sulphide etc. propane produces carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and water vapor. incomplete combustion produces high concentrations of carbon monoxide. check your air-gas mixture for better combustion.
