Question about Reddy Heater RLP100 Portable Forced Air Propane Heater with Variable Heat Ouput
I have an Reddy Heater RLP 100. I start it up, it runs fine but, it gets so strong smelling in the garage and burns my eyes that I have to turn it off. I bought it used so, no manuals. any help would be appreciated.
If the unit is running correctly it will produce a lot of carbon dioxide, but if running incorrectly it will produce carbon dioxide (a deadly gas). Had the same problem with my RLP100, 100,000 btu, unit. I measured the carbon monoxide output at 97 ppm about 8 feet in front of the output. The unit was running on its low setting at the time. I removed the main burner (a bit of work) and found some plugged holes that were cleaned with a needle file. Reassembled and the problem was betterbut, the unit was still running cooler than it should have so the reduced propane with a constant strong fan was still resulting in uncombusted propane. I then tested the unit on high (100,000 btu setting) and the CO level went to zero and no eye burning. Guess I have a one heat setting unit now.

These produce large amounts of carbon monoxide, so you essentially are poisoning yourself. Leave the garage door open part way when using it.
