It sounds like you have a dirty nozzle. Remove and replace with the same type. It may not be spraying a fine enough mist.
Hope this helps.

Will run when you take top cover off, when you put the cover back on it will try to fire up, it will shoot a cloud of smoke out and then shut off.

If you brought the heater to our shop, and gave the above description, the first thing that we would do is check the air pump pressure.

Then, if the pressure is correct (not just close) we would check the photocell for signs of insect nest or something similar blocking the view of the eye.

You must troubleshoot to find out if the problem is fuel related or electronics related- maybe these tips will help (click for link).

The fan comes on but the burner won't kick on and then shuts off


Check your fuel line for cracks and also the air line. Most likely is the CAD flame sensor, easy to change and only 3 bucks or so. Might also want to check all of your filters. Mine was doing the same thing and it was the high heat limit control and the flame sensor.

Blowing smoke immediately prior to auto-shut-off


Try a new CAD falme sensor, or high limit control, both very cheap.
