This heater should only be used in a very well ventilated area, the sore throat and burning eyes are from carbon monoxide.
Carbon monoxide is potentially fatal.  I cannot express how dangerous this is if used in a house or garage without the doors open
Please be careful and let me know if I can provide furthur assistance.

Your mixture is too rich. Go to http://www.reddyparts.com which has assistance with setting the fuel balance or get a new control valve from them.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating. Please consider a testimonial. Thank you.

My heater worked fine for a few months last year before it started burning a smaller flame and not heating as well. I then started noticing the increase of propane used. It seems as if it is running rich ...


Hi,

Check for an air filter....many of these heaters have an air filter that gets dirty or clogged and then they will do just what you are describing her....

also take an air hose and blow out everything....

What you have there is an air/fuel mixture problem...
you are not getting enough air to the burner... most like because of dirt...

The only other explanation would be that the blower is no longer running at full RPM's....

You could also try to get some oil on the shaft of the motor to lubricate it and get it running back to full speed again...

Check the fan blades for dirt also...

I have reddy pro 100 lp gas heater when i run it within afew minuets my eyes nose and throat burn. ia'm using a 20#cylinder the flame is pretty much blue


are you using it in a closed room? you should be using it where there is air circulation. what's happening is the heater is using up oxygen and is producing carbon monoxide which is poisonous and if you are not careful IT WILL KILL YOU!

Burning eyes, can't breathe.


These produce large amounts of carbon monoxide, so you essentially are poisoning yourself. Leave the garage door open part way when using it.

Propane Reddy Heater


AIR MIXTURE ADJUSTMENT IS CRITICAL ON ALL GAS BURNING HEATERS. SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE INSUFFICIANT CUMBUSTION AIR WHICH WILL CAUSE A WHITE AND LAZY FLAME .... FLAME SHOULD BE BRIGHT BLUE WITH NO WHITE OR YELLOW TIPS ON THE FLAME.
