You may have better luck posting your question in a different area. It showed-up in the Amplifiers & Preamps section. I'm pretty good with electronics, but have no clue about heaters. :)

It pours out black exhaust muffler

Black smoke is a sign of carbon and incomplete combustion. Too much gas is getting inside and constipating your engine.

If it is idling ok, then the anomaly is somewhere in the main jet metering system responsible for excessive gas going to combustion chamber.

Comes up with code 12 when turned down ( incomplete combustion )

If you're getting an error code indicating incomplete combustion, that's a good indicator, that the unit needs a thorough cleaning inside and out. It's a sign that the burners are clogged, as well as the venturi valve (the air to gas mixture valve). Keep in mind that although Vent-free gas heaters are extremely safe and 99.9% efficient, they do use interior air for combustion. So, whatever is floating in your household air (dust, lint, pet hair, etc) gets pulled into the heater when it's in operation and clogs it up. Generally, cleaning it annually (usually, in the early Fall before firing it up for the heating season) is sufficient. But, if it's in a dusty environment, twice a season would be better.

Check the Maintenance section of your Owners Manual, as it goes into detail on how to clean the heater.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know.

I have a wall mount natural gas furnance and there is black soot on my siding outside

If the heater has not been cleaned and serviced annually, the problem may be caused by incomplete combustion, due to the air intake mixture valve on the burner(s) being clogged. Also, low gas pressure can cause this. As you know, incomplete combustion can and will cause a build up of carbon monoxide.

With you being a firefighter, I'm sure you would want this checked by a qualified technician. Personally, as a volunteer & career EMT for the past 25 years, I would highly recommend that you have this done.

Hope this helped answer your question.

I just had it installed and smell gas. if it says unvented , does it need vented or am i ok. im 73 yrs old and dont know much about gas heaters

An un-vented heater should never smell like raw gas, you may get an odor of combustion by-products but never raw gas. If you are getting the raw gas smell you either have a gas leak or incomplete combustion. Always follow manufacturers operation instructions that state "open window 1/4" to allow combustion air" If the unit is brand new, you will get an odor for 20 minutes or so of oils burning off of the heater but that smell should go away. Do you have a Carbon monoxide detector in the house? You should!

I just cleaned my jets on my purex mini max plus 400 heater. It is heating great now but has black smoke coming from the top. I think it is rich and is getting too much gas. Is there an adjustment or do i...

First have you always had this connected to propane? There are different models for natural gas and for propane.If you connect a natural gas to propane the "jets" are way too big for propane. How did you clean the jets? IF you "drilled" them out they may be too large now. If you have adjusted the gas regulator, decrease gas pressure. I believe this unit has a combustion blower, be sure it is debris free on inlet and in fan, check for leaves. Make sure black smoke is not coming from debris built up inside of heater. Here is a link to a location for the complete manual for your heater:

The flue should NEVER go straight up. Go up one foot, put a 90 then another 1-2 feet into a tee with condensate (rain) removal then go straight up. Make sure there is enough combustion air. Instructions are in the manual.

Kenmore twin burner.. orange flames

A <i>temporary</i> orange flame from your gas stove can also occur at peak usage times. An increase in local demand can cause a decrease in pressure in the natural gas line. If all of your gas appliances are in combustion simultaneously, this may also cause a drop in pressure, especially in older houses. If the problem persists, it is likely a dirty/clogged burner or the stove needs servicing. In general, an orange flame (on a gas combustion appliance) means incomplete combustion and carbon monoxide production.

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.
