I don't know about your specific heater, but, as someone who has a vast electronics background, things that heat tend to give off some fumes. Many electronic componets are LIGHTLY coated with an oil product to provide humidity protection, while the product may sit in a warehouse for years. Typically, such protection, upon being heated, will disperse in the first (maybe) hour of use. but, it could be more, I guess.
BUT, fumes should never be taken lightly. FUMES SHOULD NEVER BE TAKEN LIGHTLY!!!. FUMES MAY KILL YOU!!
How I handle it is...if the fume is noxious, so as to irritate your nose, or eyes, etc. IT IS BAD!!!
Nevertheless, if I were in your boots, I would take the unit outdoors, and let it run on 'HIGH' for about a 1/2 hour, or so. After it cools down, take it indoors and try it again. If it is still fuming, write the manufacturer a "fuming" letter.

hi, have you left it on for about 10 to 14 minutes as you may just find that their is a build up of grime that needs burning off first and you should find the smell and smoke will stop over time.
So just put it somewhere where the smell and smoke wont harm anyone and then just leave it on sometimes they can take ages to burn off all the dust and grime that has built up expecily if it has been stored somewhere dusty and damp.
Just give it a good 20 to 30 min and then you should find the smell and smoke will slow down and eventually stop.
Could i just ask is it giving off any heat at all or just smoke and smell?
we use to have one of these when we had a car repair workshop that had no heater it was just like a big garage to fit about 10 cars in so we used one of those and found them pretty good.
Give it a good run and let me know what happens from what i can also remember their was no dials on our neither it was just a case of plugging it in and then it would start and give off heat and plenty at that
Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

SOURCE: I have a Montgomery Ward
Your wood burning heater has been out of manufacture for some years now and OEM parts are almost non-extent. However, if it's a damper door or something like that, I would suggest taking the part(s) with you and visiting a wood stove dealer in your area. Some parts are fairly generic and can be interchanged. I believe that Warm Morning (Martin Industries, who is no longer in business) manufactured the stoves for Montgomery Ward. If you can find some Warm Morning parts, you may be in business.
Good luck in your search.
