With any internal combustion devise it needs oxygen to combust the fuel, I suspect that your house is sealed shut to keep out the cold.  I suggest that you raise a window slightly so as to cause a draft for the heater. Be sure that the raised window is not between people and the heater because the cold air will pass over them and they will get very chilled.
This is the same fix for smoking fireplaces.

Gas appliances emitting odor


Sounds extreme but give your local Fire Station a call. They will be happy to break the monotony of the day at the fire house and come to your house with a sniffer machine. It will tell what the odor is? Then get a furnace engineer to check over and service your appliances.

It sounds to me like you might have a blocked flue, and that will cause carbon monoxide poisoning.

Let me know how you get on.

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.

Sauna Heater


Oil and Gas Sauna Heaters

Oil and gas heaters are the least popular heaters used in saunas.
One reason is because they're relatively inefficient compared to the others.
Some people even complain about the odor associated with the burning fuel. If they're properly vented, oil and gas heaters should have little or no unpleasant smell

Electric Sauna Heaters

Electric heaters are the most popular used in saunas.
They're easy to control with user friendly touch pads that include a timer and thermostat, and light switch,
They're also efficient and cost just pocket change to operate.
Electric heaters have controls that include a timer, thermostat, and light switch.

Wood Burning Sauna Heaters

Woodchief stove


It could be a draft issue . In order to work properly the stove needs to be able to draw air in to replace the airgoing up the chimney along with the smoke from the fire. In old houses this was not a problem be cause they were loosely constructed and replacement air could be drawn in around windows and doors and gaps in the walls. Newer homes are a lot tighter therefore no replacement air can get in. In some cases the house is so tight that running an exhaust fan or dryer actually creates what is known as a negative pressure situation if this is the case air can be drawn backwards down the chimney and into the house bringing the smoke from the fire with it. To check for this try starting a fire with a window or door partly open. If the fire drafts correctly you may have to install a make up air for the stove. Hope this helps.

My oil burner is leaving fumes in the house after ignition. Heat exchanger seems ok, and servicemen have tuned, adjusted dampers on chimney, but still have the smell of fumes. anyone have an idea on a...


In general if you have upgraded the house with new drywall, siding or other thermal products you have lost some air intake for the old drafty house. The solution to that is to install a damper door on the chimney close to the oil burner. This allows the chimney to intake air from the house to help move the exhaust gases up the chimney.
Also i would strongly suggest having the chimney checked for a birds nest or obstruction.
If you haven't made any home improvements i would suggest that you have a leaking fuel nozzle that is not igniting fuel right away and flooding the chamber.
Best suggestions is that if you can check the chimney and it's clear I recommend calling a service technician for proper repairs.

Pelonis heater smells like burning something


Three possibilities come to mind: First, there may be some foreign objects stuck between the sections of the coils where they connect or in their individual holes, the next is that the cord or outlet in your house is getting too hot (the circuit is being overloaded, perhaps; and finally, the clincher, you have a tiny oil leak in the coils themselves.

Solid fuel stove linked to oilsystem with two zone


Put a temperature operated control (aquastat) on the piping of the wood stove so that if it is on, it will interupt the circuit wired to the oil burner at the X&X terminals of the boiler control.As the wood stove cools off, it will close the connection allowing the oil system to fire.

Toyo laser 30 smokes and smell like unburned fuel when it ignites


If you just changed gaskets on your heater it is normal for it smoke a little bit when you first restart it. It should go away after a while though. If you smell unburned fuel you have a leak somewhere, or a spill. Check all your fuel line connections in the house. The back of the heater where the line connects, the firestop valve (the valve behind the pump that opens or closes the flow of fuel), and any connections in there behind the pump/fuel resevior. (sp) Check that they are tight. What has also happened to me is fuel has spilt and ended up along the back edge of the stove. you might be able to be crafty and unscrew all the screws at the bottom, to try to clean that up. It doesn't take much of a spill to create a very pungeant diesel smell.
