When I turn on the igniter comes but won't do the burner flame


The heater will not ignite, but this problem could have several causes! Do you mean that the motor is running, fuel at the nozzle but although there is a spark, the fuel does not ignite? This could be caused by low pump pressure, loss of spark could be the HT cables, or the ignition transformer. Is the electrode in good order?? An intermittent spark could be faulty electrodes or ignition transformer. Is the fuel clean and the correct type?? Is the fuel contaminated with water, is the fuel filter clean?? Dirty fuel could cause this problem.

Wont light when cover is on but will when it is off


I assume this is a kerosene type heater. These need three things to operate properly fuel ,air ,ignition. If the fuel and air seem ok that leaves the ignition. Most units use a spark type ignitor to light the fuel, if the gap that the spark jumps across is too wide the spark becomes weak and may not be igniting the fuel. With the cover off the fuel air mixture may be a little leaner and will ignite but the richer mixture when the cover is on will not. If the heater was working ok before chances are the gap has gotten burned wider over time and you will need to regap the ignitor. The other possibility is that installing the cover is somehow shorting out the ignitor so check the spark wire for any possible shorting. Hope this helps.

I hava an All Pro 65,000 BTU heater. It was working fine a week ago. The igniter glows, fuel mists but doesn't light off then shuts down. Ideas?


I am sure you have confirmed that the fuel is fresh and good, no water in it, etc.--
It is kerosene, not #2 Diesel fuel, right?

And the shutting down is good, if the flame does NOT ignite--- :-)
So we have to figure out why the fuel is not getting hot enough to ignite?


Question-- is the oil spray passing close enough to the ignitor?
And this unit does NOT use SPARK to ignite?, correct? --
for most of these heaters have spark ignition.. I am learning all the time, too!

How about checking the fuel pressure. and the air -- is it correct?
Check with your manual how to check and adjust.

After testing these tings, let us know what you learned

I have a 165000 reddy heater.I have fuel going in,igniter is glowing ,fan is running but it will not ignite.


Now you may want to try to reposition your igniter closer to the fuel source. I have also widened the spark gap on the spark type igniters and had success. Then are you sure that the igniter is getting hot enough to ignite the fuel?

I have a Dyna Glo-pro multi fuel heater. When I turn it on the ingitor starts working and than the fan comes on for a few seconds. Then the system shuts down because it willnot ignite. The tank is full and...


Since it does not ignite, Please check the ignition transformer. This have a secondary voltage of about 20,000 to 25,000 volts, enough to make your igniter
spark, thus, causing the atomized fuel to ignite and burn the fuel. So, please include igniter high voltage cable for ground leak. Ground leak is visible as line sparks when your heater is switched on. If your ignition transformer does not produce sparks at the
igniter, it means it needs to be replaced.
Have it done to make it work. Hope this will help you.

Have a 120000 btu fuel fired torpedo heater that fan spins and fuel drips but no spark


fuel is atomized by the blower fan, and a sparkplug provides the ignition source. this sparkplug provides constant ignition spark for the process.

All Pro K75 will not ignite. Spark igniter does


most kerosene heaters are basically the same - reddy heat, dynaglow, desatech are all the same. there's a small air compressor built into the axially mounted fan that points forward. the air pressure needed for fuel is 3-5 psi not less, not more! the air feeds through a side inlet to the fuel nozzle where it creates a vacuum venturi to **** fuel from the tank and propels it through a fan nozzle. the aerrated fuel hits the hot surface or spark and ignites. as long as there is heat and air the heater should function.
