Kerosene Space Heater Tip

I have repaired many kerosene space heaters in the past. The number one problem that I see is everyone expects the heater to just come on every winter when they plug it up. But usually it does not. It's been sitting in storage collecting dust. And then you hear them say "It worked fine last year". If everyone would just do this at the end of each winter and you are ready to store your heater, (Drain the fuel & clean your tank out). Check your filters and replace if needed. It is that simple. When you need it, do not put the same fuel that you have in a can or barrel (from last year) in the heater. Discard the old fuel properly & just purchase some fresh fuel and start off fresh. If you use the old fuel that was left in the heater or can/barrel, you are just looking for trouble. If you fire the heater off with the old fuel, you are just filling the heater with problems. Water is the problem. The fuel tanks/cans, ect. sweat during the hot months and it all settles in the bottom. Inspect your fuel before using it. Look for water/trash that has settled in the bottom. Discard as needed. You will be nice and warm instead of having heater problems when your freezing & needing heat. Just remember "start off fresh".

propane torpedo lights but doesnt stay lit


I'm confused. First you listed this as a propane torpedo heater. Second, it's a problem with and All Pro PK115 T Forced Air Kerosene Space Heater. And finally, you say "propane torpedo lights but doesn't stay lit."

Which is it? To really help you, I'll need the correct manufacturer's name & model number. And whether it's propane or kerosene fired?

Thanks.

can you use diesel instead of kerosene in ready heaters?


No - diesel fuel is NOT the same as kerosene. Kerosene is #1, regular diesel is #2. They are not interchangeable.

We arelloking for parts for our All Pro 60,000 BTU heater. The part # is 0634-3 the model of the heater is WP060X0FP


You may want to try Master Parts at 800-446-1446 or online at www.masterparts.net. You would need the correct model number. The only you gave is a serial number. You should be able to find the model number located on the heater near the serial number.
