Question about All-Pro Kerosene Garage Shop Heaters - All Pro PK115T Forced Air Kerosene Space Heater

1 Answer

All-Pro 200 will not ignite.

When I turn on the unit it sounds like it wants to start, but then quits trying and the "FLAME" indicator light comes on. I have cleaned the pickup tube and screen. What could be the problem? Thank you.

    Same problem, I also cleaned pick up area moved the nozzle a little and it ran for a while. then flamed out again. Maybe the rotor?

    I also have the same problem, I have even replaced the pump from DESA, still no fuel going to the nozzle, when I push air throgh the intake hole with my compressor the blows fuel and it will ignite, I can not seem to get the pressure up enough to pump fuel

    Do you hear a "clicking" sound when it is trying to start? Do you smell kerosene when it is trying to start?

It sound like you have either an ignition or 'dirty fuel' issue. The now Desa 'All Pro 200 T' that I have I fixed numerous times.. the approx $70 'ignitor'. But when the error code says flame' If you can tell that the thing started a flame... for a few seconds or at all.. then you can be sure that the ignitor is not the problem. .. yet. And that the flame is not a consistent lighted color.. which can meen diferent fuels mixed together..or water in the fuel. I'd try starting your heater with a high octane 'power boost' type fuel additive straight.. and then if it runs on that w/o a problem.. then you know its the fuel or fuel system.. Also you might check that the blue wire eye.. that 'looks at the flame' window is clean and wiped off with a clean cotton swab.

Not staying lit


Remove the front panel and tape down the door safety switch so the unit can turn on when door is off. Turn up thermostat to make sure there is a call for heat. The circuit board should indicate a call for heat with either a blinking light or a solid light. Then the exhaust fan should turn on clearing the venting from any fumes. When the fan has ran for a few seconds, the igniter should start glowing orange. After it reaches a predetermined temperature, the gas valve should open with a click. The flame will start at the burner closest to the igniter and travel away from the igniter. There is a small flame rod located in the flame path on the last burner that tells the circuit board it feels the flame. If the flame goes off within a few seconds of starting, you have a dirty flame rod. Clean it with a scotch-brite pad. Once you get the flame to stay on for 90 seconds or so, the room air blower will turn on. If it tries 2 or 3 times to start but does not, the circuit board will record a code and display it with a blinking light. Look on the door panel for a wiring diagram. There will also be a Diagnostic chart that will tell you what the pattern of blinking lights represent.

Good Luck!

We switched from ac to heat yerterday, but the furness (RUUD 90 Plus) is not coming on. It sounds like it is about to come on, but is just making a low humming sound like it is getting ready to come on. ...


On a call for heat, the 24 volt thermostat sends a signal to the control module. The control module will indicate a call for heat with a light on the control either blinking or remain solid depending upon model. The inducer (exhaust) blower will purge all gasses from the furnace and pressurize a pressure switch. Once the pressure switch tells the module to continue, the electronic ignition will energize and send 120 volts to the igniter. The igniter will glow and you will be able to see it if viewed thru the small inspection port. Once the igniter gets hot enough, it sends a signal to the module opening up the gas valve (24 volts). Either a pilot will come on or the burner tube will ignite then spread the flame to all burners. Lastly a safety sensor will be looking for a certain temperature within a few seconds and the furnace will continue to operate and the room air blower will turn on in a minute or two.

What could go wrong? The unit will not run if there is no signal from the thermostat (bad thermostat or broken wire), the control module does not sense a signal from the thermostat (bad control), the inducer does not energize (bad motor), the pressure switch does not close (blocked vent piping, bad switch, plugged condensate hose), the igniter does not energize (bad control, bad igniter), the gas valve does not open or there is no gas (bad gas valve, broken wire, no gas), the pilot does not light (dirty pilot), the burner does not light (bad burner, plugged orifice, not enough combustion air), the flame does not spread to each burner (bad flame spreader, dirty flame spreader, more bad burners), the flame safety sensor does not detect flame (dirty or bad flame spreader, bad flame sensor, broken wire, bad control), or the room air blower does not energize (bad fan motor, bad control).

I have a Goodman central heater when i turn it on you can hear it try to light 3 times then is quits. try to reset nothing happens, after a few hours it lights by itself.


Your unit may have a diagnostic or error light. It is a LED light on the control board. Look for a small viewing port that looks into the furnace cabinet. If you have to remove a panel to see it, there is a chance that by opening the door switch it could erase the code. Once you get to the code, look on the wiring diagram pasted on the reverse side of one of the panels for a diagnostic chart. It may give you a starting point where to look for the issue. This may also help knowing how your system is supposed to work.

most parts for kero heaters are interchangable. go to desatech dot com for parts. check for a reset button for your heater. if no reset, does the fan run? your unit can use one of two ignition parts. a spark generator with a spark plug or a hot surface igniter. the unit uses a cad cell flame detector. you might need to replace this.
