Glo Warm Self Venting Heater Model FB3B Emits strong odor

I have recently pulled a glo warm self venting heater out of storage and installed it in my home to replace a wood stove. It works fine except that it emits a strong odor while lit.
The odor is not a raw egg propane odor, but rather a used propane smell, if that makes any sense. The odor is rather strong and forces me to keep a door or window open in my cabin. My cabin is 500 square foot log home so its not unusual to have a door open for ventilation.

I have a neighbor with the same heater and hers does not produce the odor at nearly the levels mine does. Hers does make some smell but it doesn't come close to the level mine does. The room she has hers in is roughly the same size as mine, but it is a room in a larger house so there could be ventilation coming from the doors or stairs but I don't think it would explain the difference in stink levels.
I've had it stored in the original box it came in but it has been in storage for five or six years.
Glo Warm is not a product listed in your products so I'm picking the closest I could find to it.

The propane may have a higher sulfur content; however, the odor may go away soon. It is probably caused by the dust and oxidation (micro-rust) that attached itself to every part of the heater while in storage, even though it was "sealed".

The smell is not likely to go away in my opinion. I have an infrared natural gas powered one in my garage and the odor if objectionable. There is lot's of ventilation. I believe this is the nature of a heater that is not vented. I wish I did not buy it.

These are vent-free heaters and use an oxygen-depletion sensor to shut a unit off if there is not a sufficient amount of oxygen available for combustion. It is either doing it's job and you may have to open or crack a window while it's operating.

We had a problem keeping the pilot light to stay on, and this site recommended that it could possibly be the thermocoupler that was causing our problems also. We ordered the thermocouple, put it on,hooked it back up and it worked great! Thank you so much.
