The heater will try to start but keeps flaming out. I have put in new fuel and cleaned the filter and the spray tip. the fan will come on and the fuel will fire but it will only stay on for a few seconds...

Try cleaning the photo eye flame sensor. It is the black rubber boot close to the burner. Remove it and you can see the sensor down inside. Clean it with a soft cloth or a cotton swab and some alcohol. Also check the air line for cracks and check for tightness where the air line connects to the fan motor and the fuel nozzle. If the hose is stretched there, try trimming a little off the end so it will fit tighter. Check the fuel line for the same thing where it connects to the fuel filter and fuel nozzle. Let me know what you find and don't forget to rate the answer.

Is not getting fuel

Lets start at the beginning of the fuel system, First do we have fuel? Check to see that the fuel line is down in the fuel, next is the fuel filter is it clear you can do a quick cleaning by blowing air thru it backwards with a compressor and blow gun. Inspect the condition of the fuel lines look for cracks, holes and dry rot. There is a screen in behind the nozzle, remove the nozzle and remove the screen clean the screen, they have been known to corrode. Nozzles are not supposed to be cleaned as you can damage the spray angle and rating, how ever I have been successful with carb cleaner and a tooth pick. If you replace the nozzle pay attention to spray angle and GPH ratings. You still have a fuel pump here that can be plugged but usually not the case. If none of these tips help carefully take apart the fuel pump and clean it out, inspect for warn parts replace parts if necessary. Take time and now you will have to reset your pressures. Good luck take your time.

Replaced ignitor No Fire

Make sure that the ignitor is in the mist of atomized fuel. Or better yet do you have signs of fuel atomization? Check fuel filter usually an in line transparent type filter, if it is clear check the nozzle they have a screen inside as a filter as well no fuel there lines to the tank are next in line if you have fuel up to the nozzle it may be time to replace the nozzle sorry but you can not clean them any slight bend or widening of the holes changes the rate of the nozzle. Pay attention to the GPH rating and spray angle when replacing the nozzle.

Hear ignitor clicking but unit doesn't light

the clicking indicates a spark plug ignition. see if the spark is created across the spark plug gap. if it is then check the alignment of the plug in the nozzle spray pattern. if there isn't any fuel flow then all the clicking ain't gonna make any difference in the world!

If...the air pump pressure is right, the ignitor glows, the fuel is hitting the ignitor, then the unit will have combustion......unless.....
  1. there is an air leak on the pressure line
  2. there is a vacuum leak on the fuel line
  3. there is a leak at the nozzle adapter
  4. there is a restriction either in the nozzle or the fuel filter
  5. the nozzle is worn and is spraying fuel rather than fogging fuel

Check for a blockage in the heat exchanger. Spiders love to make nests in these units. Remove the front cover and the two rectangular viewing ports on the front of the heat exchanger. Watch as the unit ignites. There are three burners you need to watch and the first one is in the center and hard to see. If there is flame but it goes out quickly, you have a blockage in the unit. Check the venting to make sure it is clear of debris.
