Propane turbo heater. After awhile why does it start to burn eyes and nose?

Hi Eric

It sounds like the heater is getting the air in the room so warm that it's making your eyes and nose hurt. That can be from dryness, from heat, or from combustion products.
Depending on the partucular model, you can try to:
  1. Turn the set temperature down.
  2. Turn the turbo fan to a lower setting.
  3. Turn the feed valve from your propane tank to a slower feed. At some point, you should be able to throttle the amount of fuel burning in a period of time to where the heat is more bearable.
  4. If you're smelling fuel, or overt burning petroleum smells, turn the unit off. This is a sign that things aren't burning right.
Last, but probably most important. If you are running a unit like this inside, make sure you have windows open. Please take me seriously here - installed propane furnaces have heat exchangers to pull in fresh air, heat it, and pass that air into your house. A propane heater burning inside your house is burning your inside oxygen and, depending on the flame quality, dumping Carbon Dioxide or, worse, Carbon Monoxide, into your house. You can end up dead pretty quickly, especially from Carbon Monoxide poisoning, and you'll likely be feeling fine right up to the time you pass out. These types of heaters are meant more for outside use, so please, if you absolutely feel you must run it inside, keep windows open and have a fan running. You're playing with your health

Good Luck!

Heater runs and heats, but it "coughs" while running and emits a flame along the cone.

because it is gas , i would advise getting an accredited gas fitter to find the fault
it could be a blockage in the jet , regulator but it needs a professional to look at it

Followed fitting instructions but pipes feeding heater are cold

Turn off all heaters on system ie valves and leave the new one on see if it pushes the heat along the pipes could just be a airlock .

Furnace comes on Lo but no shift to High. Fan does not come on.

There will be a separate pressure switch for hi fire, make sure all hoses are connected and free of moisture and debris. You can temporally jump the switch once the inducer fan speeds up, not before. If the unit fires on high, you have a pressure switch issue. If the fan does not speed up, you may have a bad relay on the control board. If the unit is just being put into winter service, it may have a cob web restricting gas flow to the burner. You will need to check the air inlet as well as the exhaust pipe for restriction. Check on the wiring diagram to make sure that the DIP switches are in the proper position, you never know. Hope this helps.

My ventless gas heater smells like kerosene..wont burn off? makes us sick !!! bad headaches,watery eyes..gas co came , said it wasnt the gas? matter how long it burns, wont go away,we have cleaned it...

Stuff in the air can make you very sick when it is burned, is it Natural Gas or LP? Sometimes you can get bad LP gas that will burn your eyes. I would open a window to get more fresh air and try to let it burn to get whatever is making the problem out of the air.

Presto heaters

We have one in our office where our entry is pretty close to teh main door. It used to buzz all the time after being on for maybe 10 minutes. One day I got sick of it and took a cloth and some windex and cleaned the reflecting dish, and that actually stopped it

Lakewood oil-filled heater not heating up

It is quite possibly the thermostat. Dont risk your health these heaters are not very expensive and I would suggest going to buy a new one from your local department store.
