I was a bit skeptical about purchasing a "Heat Mate" brand heater, but then I realized it was a Sengoku...a reputable brand. I had been looking for a heater that would not use electricity. The heater itself was easy to setup, fill, and begin using. I like the removable fuel tank so you can take it out to the garage and fill it. The built-in handles on the sides make it easy to carry (when off, of course). I was also impressed by the manual (yes I read it!). The manual had the obligatory plethora of safety warnings, but it also had a complete parts list with mfr. part numbers. That's important to me so I can get any part easily enough if something goes wrong. The radiant heat is nice. It starts warming up the floor in front of the unit and the cat seems to realy enjoy it. I have been running it off and on for the past week. It looks like it needs a small adjustment because the flame on one side is too high (yellow) while the other side is about right. It's not enough to make me give a negative review. Things like this happen and I would have to adjust it at some time anyway. [...]

First, this heater is well constructed, works well, and the fuel lasts long. It does however produce fumes and odors that personally give me a headache even when used in a well ventilated garage with a 10-inch exterior exhaust fan. I used K-1 kerosene and noticed only a very minor improvement after the recommended burn-in period - I certainly wouldn't want to use it in my house unless it was an emergency. The heat output is only a little better than I get in the same space from a 1500W electric space heater which was a very big disappointment because it did not adequately heat my 320 ft3 garage located in the DFW area this winter. (It was only able to raise the initial 45 deg F that it was at, to 48 def F after running for six hours. My garage is well insulated with an insulated overhead door but it does have 48 ft2 of single pane windows and a typical amount of air leakage around the overhead door). I did not find that the top got hot like suggested, however the safety grill gets very hot and should not be used around small children or pets that may bump into it or touch it.

The operating manual is usable but poorly written and has problems such as referring to items that are not in the manual like the wick adjuster (which has to be removed for seasonal storage but is not directly identified in figures or text) and references items by multiple names which is confusing. Figures are placed within the manual without reference, in an adhoc manner, and often out of context.

I would highly recommend downloading and thoroughly reviewing the manual before purchasing this heater. There's no way my wife could perform the normal maintenance needed for this item - I would not recommend it to anyone unless they had the skills necessary to take it apart and service it as it states in the user manual (a comparable skill set would be to repair a lawn mower engine or replace the brakes on your car.) I was also disappointed that you have to tear the heater down to the wick replacement level just to put it away for the season (see page 11 of the manual) which took me over half an hour the first time I did it and will probably take that long next year if I ever decide to use it again. The heater must also be periodically taken apart to clean the wick according to the manual - I did not perform this as often as the manual stated since I found the wick cleaner than expected the first time I took it apart. Maintenance was not very well thought out on this design - that left front wing nut on the burner assembly can be a problem.

            Heats the whole first floor of the house to about 73 degrees when the temp outside is about 20 degrees. Uses very little kerosene, burns for about 14 hrs on one tank full. Removable tank, easy to take outside and fill. Light weight unit is easily moved from location to location. Little smell at start up and shut down, but with the price of heating oil, it's a small price to pay. I'm going to but a second one just to have in case they ever discontinue this model.

                Ordered this brand new unit. Arrived, put it together, add kerosene.
                It cannot ignite.
                Doesn't work.

                Very disappointing.

                Tried calling the supplier's toll free number.
                It is closed for weekend.

                  Wonderful little kerosene heater, it was easy to set up just read the manual, it is self explanatory, not hard to understand. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be able to change the breaks on my vehicle, but I'm positive I can do what the manual says to this heater and so far I have. I wasn't looking for something that turned on or off by itself or cleaned itself, nor was I looking for it NOT to smell of kerosene, common sense told me it would have some odor lighting it or turning it off. Yes, you have to remove the tank from the heater and carry it outside and fill it up, that's also safer for you, so you don't spill kerosene on your floor inside the house, that would be something to get upset about. I am over the age of 65 and I do all this myself and it's easy to fill this tank, with the kerosene hand pump that comes with it, even with the arthritis in my hands. It's a clean burning heater once it's all situated as instructed, a child could understand the directions...but don't let one use the heater...PLEASE. The room is pretty large I use it in, about 20' by 15' and a couple other rooms are open on each end of that. I also keep a window open just about 1 inch on each side of the room, cross ventilation works better for the heater, it doesn't cause the room to feel cold, but it does make the heater work more efficiently and helps any odors from lighting it dissipate faster. I have been cold far to long in the winter months and I live in Florida...but I'm old and when you get old you stay colder, it's keeping me warmer than my electric oven did last year. :) and it will also be a lot cheaper to operate. So, it is working for me so far and I wouldn't lie about it. It should save me more money than the electricity used to heat the house and keep it warm. That's another thing...it heats up the room fast after lighting the wick and adjusting the flame to a fairly low setting. Like everyone says here, it takes at least 12 to 14 hr. on one tank of kerosene, before you need to refill tank. I don't use it in the bedrooms but I do have a smoke alarm, carbon monoxide detector and a good ABC fire extinguisher, you can never be to safe and we all need to use our common sense, or you don't need to own a kerosene heater. I'm pretty sure the ones that said it "SIPPED" kerosene are telling the truth too, I'm willing to bank on their word, since I've only had this heater a short time and haven't found that out yet. And no, I am not getting paid or being compensated in any way for my comments on this heater.

                      I just started useing this heater one day ago and so far i'm very happy with it. IT gives off more than enough heat for this small apartment. I run it for a few hours than have to shut it down as it gets too hot in here and i don't want to run out of oxygen in this small air tight apartment. I owned a heater like this over 10 years ago and was very happy with it, got rid of it to make more room. Bought the new one after huricane sandy as a heat source back up in case the electric goes out. Make sure you read all of the safety instructions. I never feel totally safe with a kerosene heater but i do follow the safety instructions and yes i cracked the cellar door open just slightly to let some fresh air (oxygen) into the apartment. Another thing as stated in the instructions, burn only fresh k-1 kerosene and burn off your heater as needed out doors of course.

                        Puts out a lot of heat in a short amount of time. The downside is, you need to store kerosene to be prepared for an emergency, and kerosene degrades and doesn't keep for long. Also, it should not be left unattended with kids or pets around.

                            I have had my heater since 2/2010, see review. I use it when needed and found that the easy re-fill method for this heater is perfect for a me, 65 with arthritis in both hands. When the temp is 62 out it is cold for us in Key West, FL. I place my heater in the hall, open the bi-fold door to the furance and put the blower on with the furance off. In minutes my place is HOT. All that warm air from the heater is pulled through out the house and makes all the rooms warm and comfy. I turn the blower off, close the bi-fold door and wait a few minutes before using the off switch on my heater. I have never had any smell from the heater. My door to the outside is sometimes left open a inch or so while the heater is cooling down. For 2 years I have never paid Keys Energy a dime for electric heat. Before buying this heater I could sometimes have a higher electric bill in winter than in summer.

                                We have a smaller home and supplemented our heat pump with a 23,000 btu kerosene heater last year. It was much too large for our 1300 square feet and dominated our living space. We could not use it when the grandbabies were present.

                                The Heat Mate® 10,000 BTU Radiant Kerosene Heater (HMN-110) is the perfect size for our space. It can be safely used at one end of our combination living/dining/kitchen area instead of needing to be placed in the center of the space.

                                We are getting excellent fuel economy with this heater! As another reviewer wrote, it SIPS kerosene.

                                If you have a small space to heat, this heater is worth a look. We are very pleased with its design and fuel economy.

                                    After buying this unit I stopped using all of them....because they are not that efficient, performance wise and they are not economical at all....imagine using 1500W of electric by using only one space heater......and if you use that heater for a month ...you can see the differnce on your electric billl

                                      This heater has gotten great reviews in the past. I just bought mine in Novemeber 2011. It was easy to move and the tank is light weight. But the wick would not adjust correctly.Therefore it would not burn right. When I returned it to the store they said there was a defective part in the wick adjustment and that they had a whole shipment of replacement parts for every heater in the store.......so ask before you purchse if they can just go ahead and replace the part. Otherwise I would say the heater would be good for a average sized room. But the fuel level is nearly impossible to see.

                                      I am extremely pleased with this heater. I Had aprehensions about buying a square type Kerosene heater because most give off a noticable odor. This one only gives off some an odor when lighting and cooling down just like the big round convection type. Other than that it has no noticable odor to it; just as the round types dont. I needed a smaller type heater that was directional and this one fits what I needed perfectly. I would definitly recommend this heater to anyone who wants backup heat but doesn't need a heater as large as the round types. Plus considering it consumes less than half the amount of Kerosene per hour than the round types; since it produces less heat; you don't need as much kerosene for a given length of time.

                                        I should have downloaded the Manual and read it. my fault. I didn't understand that you can't control the heat level except by turning it off or opening a window, which sort of defeats the purpose in a bedroom at night(with CO and low oxegen sensors in the room). The heater seems like it would be fine in a large room during the day to monitor and turn the thing on & off when it got too hot / cold. I must say that Ace was really good about taking it back. I had not used it. Repackaged it with all original materials

                                          I used a similar radiant kero heater many years ago that I was very satisfied with. Now living in an old log cabin with an inefficient propane central heating system, I have been looking for alternative measures.

                                          It's a small cabin, and the heater in the living room does a great job at keeping it warm and toasty. I use Aladdin kero lamps in the other rooms to add additional warmth.

                                          The taller heating unit in this heater means greater efficiency with almost no kero odor. Very satisfied.

                                              A great little heater, sips kerosene and doesn't produce any odor. It has a good safety feature of a removable fuel tank that can be refilled outdoors. Very easy to operate.

                                                Years ago I had a similar stove but it always had a bad odor. But I loved the fact that you could pull the tank out and carry it out to the garage to fill rather than carrying the whole stove. When I was reading about this stove one reader said that it had a larger combustion chamber and because of that it did not emit an odor. So, I took a chance on it. It works great. There is really no odor emitted from my stove while it is running. I keep it in front of the fire place and move it back into the firebox and open the flu when I light and extinguish it - which minimizes those odors getting into the house. This stove will not heat your entire house but does a great job for what it is disigned to do. And you will get 15-16 hours on a full tank. My only fault with this product is the fuel gauge. I don't know whether mine is defective or what but no matter how hard I try I can't seem to read the fuel level. I like the stove so much that really doesn't bother me enough to take it back.

                                                First, this heater is well constructed, works well, and the fuel lasts long. It does however produce fumes and odors that personally give me a headache even when used in a well ventilated garage with a 10-inch exterior exhaust fan. I used K-1 kerosene and noticed only a very minor improvement after the recommended burn-in period - I certainly wouldn't want to use it in my house unless it was an emergency. The heat output is only a little better than I get in the same space from a 1500W electric space heater which was a very big disappointment because it did not adequately heat my 320 ft3 garage located in the DFW area this winter. (It was only able to raise the initial 45 deg F that it was at, to 48 def F after running for six hours. My garage is well insulated with an insulated overhead door but it does have 48 ft2 of single pane windows and a typical amount of air leakage around the overhead door). I did not find that the top got hot like suggested, however the safety grill gets very hot and should not be used around small children or pets that may bump into it or touch it.

                                                The operating manual is usable but poorly written and has problems such as referring to items that are not in the manual like the wick adjuster (which has to be removed for seasonal storage but is not directly identified in figures or text) and references items by multiple names which is confusing. Figures are placed within the manual without reference, in an adhoc manner, and often out of context.

                                                I would highly recommend downloading and thoroughly reviewing the manual before purchasing this heater. There's no way my wife could perform the normal maintenance needed for this item - I would not recommend it to anyone unless they had the skills necessary to take it apart and service it as it states in the user manual (a comparable skill set would be to repair a lawn mower engine or replace the brakes on your car.) I was also disappointed that you have to tear the heater down to the wick replacement level just to put it away for the season (see page 11 of the manual) which took me over half an hour the first time I did it and will probably take that long next year if I ever decide to use it again. The heater must also be periodically taken apart to clean the wick according to the manual - I did not perform this as often as the manual stated since I found the wick cleaner than expected the first time I took it apart. Maintenance was not very well thought out on this design - that left front wing nut on the burner assembly can be a problem.

                                                  Got this heater two days ago and have been useing it to heat my 1000 square foot home. The furnace hasn't kicked on one time while the unit is in operation. It was 29 degrees outside and the house remained 73 inside. I turned on the furnace fan only to cirrculate the heat. Lit and extinguished outside and there was no odor inside. Love this heater. Sips kerosene.

                                                  I use kerosene heaters all the time. Changing the wick is easy on all of them I own. If you can not change the wick you should take it to someone who knows how to do it! It took me 15 minutes to replace the wick in the newest HMM 110. Easy very simple to do so. The heater does a wonderful job.SO far this is the best heater I have and has the least amount of fumes. You also need to use the correct kerosene and make sure that it is good where you are buying it from! Contaminated K1 will smell bad and ruin the wick! Proper K1 is clear! No color to it no matter what people tell you It has to be clear! If it is pink or red looking it will smell bad and clog the wick. #2 fuel or diesel fuel is pink and will not work ! If the K1 is contaminated with #2 fuel or diesel it will look pink or red. This happens when the storage tank is filled off the truck and the hose is not purged. I hope this helps and you find it to read.

                                                      For information from a Kerosene Heater Expert refer to Miles Stair's Wick Shops web site. This heater is a recommended heater. Yes it does put off fumes, when you light it and when you extinguish it. I light mine outside and extinguish it outside, as a result I have no fumes. If you use K-1 Kerosene and have the heater set up correctly (see Miles Stair's web site for instructions) you will be very pleased with this heater.

                                                      if good proper installation is practiced then good performance will occur.the wick MUST be installed properly to manufacturers specifications ..these heaters always work when proper operation is followed.I used a Kerosun for 20 years in a workshop with no problems..YES they smell..YES they use a lot of energy..but if proper ventilation is practiced the heater (regardless of make) will do its job correctly and safely -the key is the Heat chamber-which always works best with a BLUE flame about 1 inch above the top of the glass chamber -too much gives off odor..too little will hinder performance-always read the owners manual which is one reason most people make the mistake -NEVER go to sleep with one of these in a room-always use LARGE amounts of fresh air -from several vented sources-i e open windows about 1 inch or door cracks at same opening..when properly used these heaters perform greatly thank you
