Did you set the pump pressure to specs. If not, it won't ignite.

I have 2 new Master Heaters, model MH135KTFA. Both had the air pump rotor shatter before the first tank of fuel was through. Replaced rotors, checked clearances, and they both failed again, Any idea w


This is a difficult question, if the rotor and blades are clean, not contaminated with anything, it seems to point in the direction of perhaps the parts expanding with excess heat. Is the motor running normally, is it overheating?? Is the area where it is being used particularly hot? Have you used it when paint spraying, sucking in paint,causing the rotor to stick. Is there any free movement on the motor shaft? There must be a reason but this is one of those faults which is not clear cut. Sorry I can't be more help.

Pump not pumping


Just repaired a 60 and a 115. Neither was pumping air to fuel nozzle. Both rotor assemblies were bad. Pull off the filter assembly and then take off the plate on the back of the motor. You will probably find that the rotor is in several pieces.

You sound like you're pretty handy.

Since the unit was in a flood, you may have to dismantle most if not all of the heater, then start looking for plugged up or seized parts like the fuel filter, fuel nozzle, pump, etc. the fuel tank should be completely drained and dried out and new fuel added (after the problem is found)

Here is a link to site that shows many of the parts you may need:

It may be a case of using the process of elimination.

Ignitor lights, fan comes on,wont start ,has new fuel,


My guess is that your statement "won't start" refers to the flame (lack of). If this is the case then ask yourself if the unit is getting fuel. If NO fuel, check the pump rotor- it may be broken. If SOME fuel, then set the pump pressure. Air pump pressure is directly relayed to proper fuel flow. Instructions http://www.reddyparts.com/pressure.htm

My 89 mazda 323 turns over but wont start


Last week my 323 89' Mazda stop working as I was driving it in middle of the street, I pushed to the side. it would not start, the starter sounded ok, but the car just didnt start, I checked the fuses, gas pump, and all seemed to be ok, finally with the help of a friend we found out that the ignition rotor at the distributor wasnt working we then replace it with a new one from autozone , is about 5 dollars, now it works just fine, big problem easy solution.

30,000 btu kerosene ready heater


check pressure of the air compressor should be in the 3.0 to 3.5 range. not enough won't suck fuel, too much will blow out the flame. igniter either lights or it doesn't no in between. does the main flame come on?
