Hi, tried to start heater for the frist time this year. I'm getting a strong kerosene smell. Could I have flooded it? If so what do I do now? Kathy

Call a Pro and DO NOT keep using it. If there is excess oil in the chamber and it lights up you will have an uncontrolled fire and possible house fire!!

Can it be cleaned out and then fired up agin. I dont know of anyone who works on these in the area where I live. DH has always worked on it. He just is'nt sure how to clean it out and if there is a under lying reason it seemed to have flooded.Maybe he just primed it to much.
