    I have the same problem too. I have gone thru it all. Filter is fine. Line is okay. Ignitor ignites. Fuel is spraying. I have tried to adjust the air/fuel ratio. I can only get it to run with the cover partially on. Seems like the safety mechanism is getting involved??? Help!! Thx

Check the seal around the fuel tubes; mine was sucking air around the tube causing blow-out.

I had the same problem. I took the nozzle head off and blew through it with air. I also blew through the air line, this is the one that goes to motor. It has worked fine ever since.

When heater starts up it puffs fumes then lites

Generally, if the heater puffs fumes at start up it is because there is not instantaneous combustion.
What causes this?
  1. Worn nozzle
  2. Incorrect (click for instructions) air pump pressure
  3. Spark plug carboned
  4. fuel filter restricted
  5. Air leak or vac leak between the pump and the nozzle
Generally speaking, if the fuel is being delivered as a FOG not a SPRAY, and the spark is strong and properly oriented there will be immediate combustion at start-up.

My heater will rub for a minute or so then shut off ,,,unplug it and after a few seconds plug in back in and will run a little while again and help would be appreciated

Sorry, this is not a solution but some advice, Kerosene heaters can give off dangerous fumes if not working correctly, for your own safety you should contact the manufacturer.

When I plug the unit in, the fan turns very slow, and I smell fumes, but the unit does'nt turn on

I am not able to give you a solution, but will put forth some possibilities for you to check.
  1. Spin the fan manually. No power, please. If the fan spins freely, and no grinding is heard or felt, then the starter capacitor or starter relay (whichever equipped) is defective. Internal capacitors are not serviceable. Replace the motor.
  2. If the fan does NOT spin freely and/or binds, either the rotor (air pump) is broken or a motor bearing is bad. The rotor is replaceable, the motor bearing is not serviceable.
If you decide to repair the heater as described then the air pump pressure must be reset, in either case, in order for the heater to burn properly. It is a simple process. Follow this link for instructions

Propane 100,000btu heater runs fine but has a lot of fumes, it almost burns your eyes

Go to my tip at for all your answers. Your air fuel mixture is off. You need a new air filter and need to set the bleed air. For that you need special tools which you can get at the information I give at my tip. Let me know if you need anymore help.


Thanks for using FixYa
