I think that it is a cheap heater and the smell is the metal paint is burning .away I think that you should give it a little more time bec after that paint goes away it wont smell any more.

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.

Whatever it is sounds like you should clean it... carbon and soot build up in exhaust... if it is a ventless (which is info you should have asked about) than you will find that it is the second heater in line and is starved for fuel.

You need to ventilate this area while the units running! This is potentially a lethal situation!
You are competing with a flame for oxygen and breathing the carbon monoxide gasses
from the heater! Both unacceptable scenarios! you can easily die in this environment!
I cannot stress this enough! You need to open a window or crack the door enough to allow air to circulte and gasses to vent out and escape, If the burning of eyes is really bad your unit may not have sufficient combustion air, I can t tell you without seeing it precisely, you better vent that room though!

The smell is unburned propane and the burning of the eyes is caused by carbon monoxide. My heater (RLP100) does the same and I was able to measure the carbon monoxide at 95 ppm (deadly). I have yet to figure out what exactly is happening. Tried a new regulator/hose from a new unit - no help. Also pulled apart the burner nozzle and cleaned the holes - helped a bit. Next step is the valve.
