Are 441 Oil Monitor Fumes Dangerous?


I have a 441 oil monitor heater that works fine except since the last time it was serviced it now gives a Kerosene oder when it burns. Are the fumes dangerous and does anyone know how to stop this?

Thats what I wsa afraid of.. Any Idea what it could beand how it can be fixed? No one wants to work on it because its not a laser heater.

Call the factory to see if they have a list of local companies that sell and servive it.
If it is raw fuel you are smelling its not dangerous it just smells.If your vent isn't protected,it could be wind blowing exhaust back into house.That would not be good.From what I read about your unit ,it must be cleaned correctly each year so maybe you just have a dirty unit that needs a good cleaning inside and out.
