I have a blueflame probane heater ventless and when burning it has a slight smell. Is that normal for this ventless heater.


It depends on what it smells like. Initially, when the unit is installed it should be burned on HIGH for 45 minutes to an hour. Doings that, burns off all the oils and seasons the heater. Sort of like seasoning a cast iron skillet. After that, the newness odors should be gone. It's normal to get a whiff of gas when the burner lights or turns off. It should dissipate rather quickly.

Although Vent-free (ventless) heaters are very safe to use and are 99.5% efficient, their one drawback is that pick up strong household odors, like strong cleaning products, carpet shampoos, new paint or stain odors, strong cooking odors, etc and make them worse. That's why it's always best not to use the heater during or after painting, for at least 2 weeks. Although your nose may not detect the paint odor, the heater can and will make it worse. Also, always use your range's exhaust hood when cooking. Hopefully, it's the vented type and not one of do nothing recycling hoods.

Also, thoroughly cleaning the heater inside and out , at least once a season, will go along way in reducing odors and maintaining the longevity of your heater.

One other caution, do not burn scented candles and operate the heater at the same time. Scented candles soot anyway, but adding the warm moist, comfortable heat from the vent-free heater, will cause them to soot 50 times worse. Trust me, it's not the heater, it's the scented candles sooting.

Hope this helped explain some of the things that you asked about and more. If I can be of further help, please ask me through the Leave a Comment link.

Ihave a Goodman GUS075-3 model. Turned the heat on for the first time this year. After abt 5 mins. running it started to smell like it was on fire, the breaker shut off. Now,the pilot keeps going out and...


I would suspect that your fan motor burned out. What I would suggest is wait about 1/2 hour with thermostat turned down to lowest setting where it is not trying to turn furnace on. I would then turn thermostat back up to call for heat and see what happens. Most electric motors have a thermal overload on them and if its on motor will not run until it cools back down. Even if this works I would recommend that you have motor replaced and clean blower. Hope this helps. Thanks

Burning Smell from Old Baseboard Heather All of a Sudden


If it was the first time started this season, then it was dust buildup burning off. If burning smell continues, call for service.

Furnance does not come on (first time to turn it on this season). It has power and blower/motor area heats up(I can smell the dust burning) but nothing blows out though the fan works.


You have a fan switch for the blower that's probably bad.
It only allows the blower to start and stop at a certain set temperature.

Heater problem model PHK 080-1


THE BURNING SMELL IS NORMAL. BEFORE HEATING SEASON OPEN ALL DOORS AND TURN THE HEAT UP AND LET RUN TILL ALL DUST IS BURNT OFF. IF BLOWER IS NOT COMMING ON NOW. THERE ARE 2 TIME DELAY RELAYS, AND ANOTHER RELAY FOR "FAN ONLY OPERATION". ALWAYS MAKE SURE THEY ARE NOT THE PROBLEM BEFORE REPLACING AN EXPENSIVE MOTOR.
