Fish house heater stinks???

7 posts in this topic

Since getting my Ice Castle back out of storage I have found that the heater kinda smells when I turn the heat on. At first I was thinking maybe a mouse may have gotten in the exhaust hole or something but it doesnt really smell like that. Im thinking now that it may just be road salt and dirt that got up in the intake/exhaust holes. Anyone had this problem before...anything I can do to make it go away...Ive been running the heater for a while and it isnt so strong now but the smell is definatley still there.

Usually is just dust on the heat exchanger run it awhile and it should go away

In addition if you are not a certified,licensed heating guy do not just tell some one to just let er buck and go fish.They may listen to you and wake up dead.

Maybe the vent/air exchanger is plugged. Is the flame looking normal or yellow and weak?

The stink may be unburned gas or high CO2 from poorly burned gas, not good.

Best have it checked out before you use it.

Just wanted to remind everyone that you CANNOT smell carbon manoxide.
