First smell. Only slight kerosene odor on shut down. This is to be expected. Even a match or candle smells slightly when you extinguishe it. The smell from this device was about the same intensity. Not a factor at all in my usage. If ANY smell is a concern for you then go electric. Of course when you fill the tank you may smell kerosene from the tank. If this is a problem fill it outside. Again not significant in my opinion.
Flame height and intensity. The flame never got very big - well not as big as indicated in the cartoon. But it was consistent around the wick/ burn ring and only flickered slightly during first 5-10 min of operation. As the heater warmed up burn became more consistent and stronger. No soot noticed no smell during normal operation.
Use correct fuel. If you use lower quality fuel you may have problems - per the instructions. Lower grade kerosene has impurities therefore you may smell sulfur etc. (rotten eggs ). If you use correct fuel of sufficient purity/ proper grade you will have no problems - again as per instructions. I bought my kerosene from a local BP right out of an above ground storage tank. Paid 3.99/gal. No problems with it. Call around you, can find at some gas stations and most hardware stores. Lows/Home Depot may carry it. You will pay more per gallon from there (10.00$/gal) however. Probably can get at Walmart too. Buying by gallon is NOT economical. Buy blue gas cans 5gal and save. I bought 10gal for 40$ compared to 100$ from afore mentioned big box stores. You can have it delivered to you house from HOME DEPOT but again very expensive. If you only need heat for short durations maybe that's ok. But if you are going to use all winter electric heat is way cheaper.
Construction: it's stamped metal and made overseas. What do you expect German engineering and hand fitting? It's more than adequately built for its purpose and I feel will last many years if you do as the instructions tell you.
Don't cook on it it's not meant for it. Get a hot plate. If you think you are saving yourself any money cooking on it you are probably in need of a stove. So buy one and get yourself an electric blanket. It's not a Swiss Army knife and your asking for trouble and shorter life span of the product.
Overall most of the problems people noted are addressed specifically in the instructions. Which BTW are reasonably written and look professionally written unlike many instructions written originally in another language and translated in English.
Follow the directions, do as you are told and chances are you'll be fine. But most people think they are precious and can't be told anything then are confused when things don't work as advertised. Perhaps if you get a defective device from the factory (built on a Monday or Friday who knows) your experience will vary (unfortunate when you are trying to heat your house for your family)but I think this is a quality product at a reasonable price and am considering a second for upstairs. Oh, as all things involving humans, take precautions to prevent fire or injury. Get fire extinguisher for class C fire, store fuel outside, be aware of dangers of carbon monoxide, and for heavens sake don't let children play near it. Burns people. Isn't it obvious?
I'll update this when I get a weeks worth of use out of it. Got it today, fired it up and was toasty warm in 3 hours in a large space 40'x20'. It's a keeper
UPDATE: 8 MAR 2015
I have used almost 10 gal of kerosene in this unit with no troubles. FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS FOLKS. Most of the problems people have encountered is from not using the device as directed. Probably because they have had one before from another manufacturer and "think" they know what they are doing. I have had NO SMOKE (except a quick puff from starting), no smell (again except during starting and only a faint whiff). This thing warms up the coldest room in my house to nearly shorts and tshirt temp. I'd say the room is 40'x20' Doing so takes the load off the crappy heat pump so the rest of the house is acceptable. I am sure there are factory screw ups, but my experience is that this is a great heater. Oh, I get about 10 hours per fill up. Its roughly 2 gal. at 3.99/gal its not as inexpensive as some types of heat, but if you use it to keep the chill off, you may find its just what you need. BTW I get my kerosene at the local BP 10 gal at a time. IF you buy in larger bulk you may see a discount.
As far as performance, it does well. Heats up my workshop sell even when it's below 35 degrees. It doesn't deflect much heat to the sides, but you can modify a cover to accomplish this. The handle pulls out easily and rarely is in place when going to pick it up. The cage is a bit flimsy as well, but can be modified to heat water on the top to wash hands while working. Pretty happy with this heater as it served it's purpose.. but disappointed in the electric start function.
1-Use it first before you need it! There are U-tube videos that will let you get to know the heater and how it operates.
2-Use it first outside! Your first time using the heater, you will make mistakes and make the flame too high. This will create soot and odor. Practice outdoors
3-You will need to let the heater run for about 30 minutes before you get a stable flame the first time you use it.
4-Don't forget to move the burner assembly back and forth so the flame distributes correctly across the wick.
5-Don't be too alarmed if the flame isn't quite "uniform" your first go around.
6-Watch the U-tube videos!
Once you do the steps above, you will have an awesome heat source.
I have a "Florida Room" that is not insulated at all on the floor and it has 8 Large double pane windows. I keep an electric heater going in the winter to keep the main house heat from escaping. I unplugged the electric heater and brought in the DH2304. I had the thermostat set for 66 in the house. Within an hour, the thermostat read 70. 35 minutes later it read 73. I am very impressed. My house is just under 3000 sq feet.
A final thought, the fuel gauge read empty yet the flame was still strong. I moved the heater outside as I didn't want the Kerosene smell that occurs when the fuel burns off. Well, after 1.5 hrs of burning outside while on "empty" it was still going strong. I decided to bring the heater back in. It ran for roughly another hour before going out.
The moral of the story is, this is different than any other heater I have used and takes getting used to. The heat output however is well worth it!
