    Hi All,

    The heater seems to be running fine, but I've read around and seen in a lot of places the flame should be completely blue, mine has a bit of yellow in it. I have a new monoxide alarm and its not going off.

    Thanks so much, file-9.jpeg file1-1.jpeg

    Do you know how many cubic meters the room is?
    Is it in a room or an internal space?

    Haha maybe! 600 square feet is around 55 square metres.
    Not sure what you mean by room or internal space? outside the room are corridors and other offices and one long wall with large windows. Its got circulationa round it.

    In a room:-
    Heat input not to exceed 4.75KW
    MAX Gross input 50W per Meter cubed of heated space.
    Ventilation = 50CM2 plus 25CM2 for every KW above 2 kw gross input, direct to outside air.
    Must have an openable window.

    Chances are that the air has become vitiated.
    You need to turn it off, stop using it until the issue is dealt with.
    It may not be emitting Carbon Monoxide at the moment but it will !!
