We need to cover all angles to protect ourselves. In our new manuals (2 yrs) we give a 2 page explanation on CO, and how it can effect you. We are the only manufacture to even mention about the effects of CO with a coal stove. I guess they are afraid of chasing away a customer. I'm afraid of one being hurt.
I know what you mean. I am a retailer and sell space heaters and water heaters of all types. When I sell one on one I give the whole story and it often can cost a sale. People like it simple. Most won't read your two pages on CO. Most don't even read the darn manual.
I get kero heater customers back all the time with contaminated fuel problems. The manual is very clear on fuel and cleanliness. They always think it's the heater, never the operator. They just know "[they] didn't do anything wrong" and those engineers are over educated and too smart for their own good.
