    My motor starts and runs fine, burner ignites and burns good. Breaker kicks off after 10 - 15 sec. With the cover off I can see the igniter continues to spark as long as it is running, suspect the photocell may be bad. I'm no expert, however it is my belief that once it is burning good the igniter should no longer be arcing.

The rotor in the pump assembly may have broken or cracked and is binding the rotation of the motor. The pump assembly can be removed to inspect, clean and replace any parts that are damaged. The manual will step you through this procedure and can be done in a short period of time. Your local hardware store may be the replacement parts on the shelve.

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.
