SOURCE: MPI 41 Keresene Monitor Heater LIft Pump over-primed?

I recently relocated monitor heater from living room to dining room and ran new line to heater. I have pressed the priming button located on right side and turn unit on, but all that happens is it will click on run for a cycle and burner never ignites and then turns itself off and burner indicator lights continue to blink on and off, I dont think it is getting proper fuel to unit. What do I need to do?

How do I fix the Monitor Lifter Pump 1103?


The pump is not drawing oil but only when when sucking. (You knew that). I would guess that moving the heater caused a small leak in the oil suction line or pluggage in a suction strainer/filter. When primed, everything is OK. So ignitor, nozzle, etc is OK when the prime fluid is present. But the pump cannot draw liquid. Look for a very small leak in the suction letting air in. Look for pluggage in a suction filter. It won't take much air inleak or suction restriction to stop a pump from lifting.

My monitor 2200 heater is leaking fuel what could be the problem


That depends on where the leak is. If it is leaking out of the fuel sump the needle valve in the sump could be stuck or just leaking by so that the sump is over flowing. You could also make sure the fuel line fittings are tight where it connects to the pump and the burner chamber. If you are using an internal tank you should take the tank out and look down in the heater for kerosene. Check the fuel fittings in the back of the heater. Has the heater been working? If has gone through several attempts to start but hasn't lit kerosene could be built up in the burner and you should check the igniter. Also you would want to dry up any excess kerosene in of the burner. There are also some o-rings in the fuel pump itself but I wouldn't think they would be leaking. Basically there are not a lot of places it could be leaking just follow the fuel line from the back of the heater to the burner. You may need to wipe up the kerosene and then look for a drip. Hope this helps.

E22 error message - heater won't operate ? pump needs to be primed - not used in 3 winters Toyotomi laser 30 model direct vent kerosene heater


The EE22 code means the heater has failed to ignite for 3 tries in a row. To reset this code you must disconnect the power from the unit for 30 mins. You should figure out why it isn't lighting first though because you will build up kerosene in the burner if you keep trying to start it. If you hear a ticking sound when the pump starts it means there is no fuel getting to the pump. There could be some fuel gelled up in the sump under the fuel pump. You can check your igniter by feeling the igniter cover but be careful it will be very hot if the igniter is working after a short time. Hope this helps. You can contact me at nitensheaterservice@earthlink.net

Check your filter in the fuel line outside if you have one. Also check the strainer in the fuel sump.

Heater chamber gets warm to touch but never gets up to temp I unhooked the copper line at the pot, turned on the heater and no k1 came out-pump wasn't activated. Flow from tank is ok-screen is clean-float...


you are describing a vented kerosene heater could be a monitor or a toyotomi. unit goes through a 300 sec purge cycle before the igniter heats up and starts the kerosene. after the purge cycle the solenoid pump is supposed to start pumping kero into the pot. if the pump is not working check for a pulsating voltage at the pump. if there is no voltage there then the pump or pump relay is shot.
