Why suddenly a strong odor of burning fuel when heater is operating?


Improper air to fuel mixture, way to rich.
Does this heater have the ability to adjust ratio?
if so, play with adjustment until odor goes away.

Ready heater Pro 100 (65-100,000 BTU0) strong oder that berns the eyes after a short period of time and is worse on low settings. Does have suffishent ventalation.What cold be wrong or cause this


Your eyes burn because the flame is burning too rich or too lean. Always start troubleshooting a fuel delivery problem by setting the pump pressure.

If the pressure is correct, check for a restricted fuel filter, a cracked end cover, air or vac leaks between the pump/nozzle and tank/nozzle.

DESA recommended annual replacement of the nozzle because they wear out and start producing a spray rather than a fog.

Running very rich. how to adjust fuel and air screw


First of all are you running kerosene or diesel ? If you are using diesel, it does not burn as clean as kerosene which causes that burning rich smell. If you are going to use diesel, just use #1 diesel only but still may have a little rich smell. Don't use die red off road diesel. If you are using kerosene and want to check your air pressure on your pump, you will need a 10 lb. test gauge with a 1/8" NPT male pipe thread on the end of the gauge.There are 2 plugs on the back plate. Do not remove the upper plug with the hole in it. This is the adjustment screw for pressure. Clockwise increases pressure, counter clockwise decreases pressure. With the heater unplugged,remove the lower plug. Screw the test gauge in and start the heater. Check the pressure. Most are set between 5 1/2 and 6 lb. of pressure. Check your owners manual to see what your setting should be. If your pressure does not change, you have a worn pump and it would have to be repaired. Once you have the correct setting, unplug the heater, remove the gauge and install the plug back. If you feel that you are not qualified to perform this procedure, send it in to a local repair center.

It burns extreamly rich , fumes burn your eyes almost and dont want to start come time even though it has plenty of fuel. there is 2 adjustable knobs on the back . ( which is WHAT i guess to ask ) ...


Hi and Welcome to FixYa.

Go to page 12 of this manual:

http://www.desatech.com/techDocs/DESA%20HSI%20IGNITION%20SERVICE%20MANUAL.pdf

I suspect you have either a dirty air filter or... the pump pressure is higher than 5.3 PSIG The adjustment procedure is on page 12 of the above link.

Also the fuel vent cap is vented. If someone lost the vent rubber piece in the cap of the fuel tank cap it can cause the same symptom. Check the fuel cap per page 21 of the manual above.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Smells like it is running rich and it does not seem to be getting as hot as my other one strong smell and burns your eyes


Whatever it is sounds like you should clean it... carbon and soot build up in exhaust... if it is a ventless (which is info you should have asked about) than you will find that it is the second heater in line and is starved for fuel.

Ive got a reddy heater pro 155 when you turn it on it runs rich burns youre eyes fumes i took it to a man that works on them here local and he said the board that controls fuel mixture was bad what do you...


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

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.

Air fuel mixture screw adjustment, forced air kerosene heater


Most ready heaters have a fuel pressure setting on the back of the heater near the fan. There should be two small plastic covers, looking directly at the back, the one on the left can be removed and a pressure gauge installed. The one on the right is slotted for adjustment of pressure. I think the correct pressure for that model is 3.0 lbs.
