SOURCE: fumes

One of two things, a high heat limit control or the flame sensor, also check your air line that runs to the heater nozzle could be cracked, not enoughair to fuel mix will make it burn dirty.

SOURCE: ive got a reddy heater pro 155 when you turn it on

Are you sure it is running too rich? Your eyes will also burn if it runs too lean because the hyrocarbon and nitrous oxide balance is off. If too rich, there usually is a smokey vapor that is emited, whereas too lean does not create any seeable vapor.
If youhave a little tech to you, you can over-ride the control board and have the power go directly to the burner (as is in the older burner models). If you get the same results, then you'll know itis not the control board. Goodluck,Macgivor

I have a reddy heater 100 pro it stinks when it is going and burns my eyes


If you are using it inside, in an area that is not well ventilated, that is the problem. In addition, if this heater is in a work area and there are paint or stain fumes or anything similar, the heater is picking up those fumes and making them 100 times worse.

Also, is the heater has not been cleaned and service regularly, this also could cause the odor, due to incomplete combustion. Also, how old is the gas in the tank you're using. Old LP Gas can also cause the odors.

Those things listed above, are all things that can cause the problem you described. Resolving those should take care of the odor problem.

I have a rlp100 heater that works well but now has an annoying smell. It also burns your eyes some. It is 3 years old and hasn,t been used much. What can I do to get rid of the smell?


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.

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...

Propane 100,000btu heater runs fine but has a lot of fumes, it almost burns your eyes


Go to my tip at http://www.fixya.com/support/r4124129-yearly_maintenance_reddy_heaters for all your answers. Your air fuel mixture is off. You need a new air filter and need to set the bleed air. For that you need special tools which you can get at the information I give at my tip. Let me know if you need anymore help.

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.
