You need to give this heater a good clean with a mild detergent and cloth with it unplugged let it dry for a few hours then try it again. The oil is sealed inside inturn you can't smell this unless it's leaking.

Why is there delayed start & screeching?


The motor needs to be oiled. There are places to add oil on the ends of the motor. There may be a start capacitor that needs replaced too.

Blue smoke usually indicates burning oil. There may be some residual oil in the cylinder that burns off when the engine is started. Do you use much oil when the engine runs? Keep an eye on the oil; level.

I have an Empire Corcho model CH-15 that is at least 15 years old. I have not used it much until past 2 years. It just started emitting a strong smell and a white powder is laying on the heater, above the...


Since it hasn't been used in at least 15 years, what you're seeing is the dust, dirt and spider webs that are being burned up by the heater. The strong smell is because of the clogged burners. Best suggestion is turn it OFF let it cool completely and thoroughly clean the unit. It may need to be dismantled some so that you can reach and clean everything. A shop vac with a house and brush attachment works well to accomplish this. Pay particular attention to the burner(s) and vacuum them several times. Dry clean everything you possibly can. Then reassemble the heater and relight the pilot and give it a try.

In closing, I must say, having been in the hearth business for 15 years, I' am totally shocked, that after 2 years of neglect, that a 15 year old gas heater would even light.

Our Kenmore, which is over 30 years old and has never had a problem, is now producing a burning electrical odour when turned on. I suspect it's time for a replacement. Make sense?


Yes you are right! the magnetron has gone and produces a odour that is very distinctive when this happens. The fact you got 30 years out of it is excellent and yes it is time to replace.

Internal 1/2 psi propane regulator is not passing gas thru so that heater wont light. Are there recalls? Where can I buy a replacement part? Heater is 2 years old, never lit.


What's the pressure to the heater? It should be a minimum of 11 to 13 water column inches. Also, make sure that your heater is in fact a propane fueled heater. Don't go by whats on the box it came in. Look at the manufacturer's tag(s) on the heater. It may be a Natural Gas unit instead of Propane unit. I've seen this happen before. In which case it won't work and can not be converted.

Furnace is 5+ years old (warranty ends 5 years) and heat exchanger is cracked, need new furnace as its emitting CO!!!!


Well yes and no. Let me explain, you can buy a replacement heat exchanger, or possibly get in touch with the manufacturer and customer service. Express your discontent nicely about the product and warranty and they just may send you an exchanger. I have been successful doing this with a high end television. Weigh the expense of replacement exchanger verses replacing entire furnace, then go with the best option. Sorry to hear about your luck it just does not seem right that at five years this should happen.
