I hope you are burning K1 kerosene as opposed to off road diesel. Diesel stinks no matter what you do to the heater. A couple things that have happened to me are, fuel selection K1 is it, when storing for the end of the season old fuel can cause water from condensation to build in the tank. When water is in the tank you get ignition and it burns just not hot enough to burn the fuel completely, this causes the heavy odor. Old fuel will do the same it is as if the fuel thickens to an oily state and becomes heavier. It just does not burn hot enough to get rid of the odor. You can try increasing pump pressure this changes air fuel mixture and you may get rid of the odor somewhat.

My reddy heater was running and ran out of fuel at which time it gave off a foul exhaust. Was this exhaust carbon monxide or just the sulfer smell associated with kerosene?


probably both and unburnt fuel also. when the unit ran out it still pumped a small quantity of fuel into the hot burner chamber where it turned to smoke and was expelled. carbon monoxide itself is odorless and what is normally referred to as c. o. odor are unburnt fuel products, some of which smell pretty strange.

Heater will not stay on rm60 reddy heater


When you say the heater is coming on does it actually ignite or is the motor just running until the safety circuit kicks it off? The air pump on you heater should blow at 3.5 to 4 psi which runs up to the nozzle which is a venturi which sucks the fuel out of the tank. The motor will generally run for 20 to 30 seconds trying to ignite. If the flame sensor does not sufficient flame during the time it shuts the motor off. Check these items and let me know what you find.
