If a drop of water passes through the system and causes a momentary flameout condition, the photocell tells the control board to shut down- and it does. The photocell has done it's job. The ignitor only gets red for the first 5 seconds of burn-time, then the flame keeps itself going, at least until the water passes. Since water doesn't burn the flame goes out and there is nothing to restart the flame.

Why dose it runs good for awhile then shuts down, let set for a few min. then it starts ok


run an obdll test...if you dont have an obd scanner, go to a larger auto parts store, such as PEP BOYS or MURRAYS etc...and have them do a scan...(its free), and they will give you a result of the diagnostic and a parts and labor quote! It sounds to me that it is an electrical problem!

Kerosene Portable Forced Air heater comes on, runs awhile


Here is a link to your owner's manual... http://12.153.20.74/manuals/123919-01A.PDF. Look on page 8 and 10. It could be several things. It could only be a dirty fuel filter or the pump pressure may just need adjustment. If you need a part you can contact Master Parts at 800-466-1446 or you can find them on-line at www.masterparts.net. I hope this helps!

Htr shuts off after awhile and won't come back on till it's cooled down


I had the same problem with my heater. It was a cracked fuel line. I replaced the rubber hoses. On mine there was a pick up hose and a feed hose. They were dry cracked. Works great now. Hope that helps you out.

My honeywell heater was working one minute and not working the next.


HI I have this heater and no manual , and I was doing research on the internet and found that these haeters have an automatic shut off if it gets too hot and it wont come back on for a while until it is cooled down. I just unplug mine awhile or turn it off and then it comes back on when it cools down.
