Question about All-Pro Kerosene Garage Shop Heaters - All Pro PK115T Forced Air Kerosene Space Heater

2 Answers

In order to start heater I have to open it, turn it on, and push the fan. This is the 2nd heater I have had with this problem.

The first one was a bent fan shaft, this one appears straight and worked perfectly last year but just started sticking. Is there a way to lube it? If so with what?

    No oil port and the shaft sits inside the motor; wasn't going to drill through there. What I did was to lift the front up to about a 45 degree angle and spray WD-40 on the shaft. Seems to work fine now. Thanks for the help guys.

Of course there is! If there is NO grease point or oil point you will need to make your own. Drill two holes from the top of the bearing holders with a 1/8 inch drill bit all the way through to the bearings. Use 3 in one oil periodically to lubricate through the holes. To keep dirt out, push in a little bit of a Q-tip cotton into each hole.

Heater hose diagrams


The interior cab heating system is identical to 4-wheeler cars. Two hoses connect to the cab heater core box, which is part of the engine radiator coolant system. If you're not getting heat when you turn on the heater fan, then one of the hoses is blocked or the heater core box is blocked up. One hose is inlet, which brings hot coolant from the engine to the cab heater core box. The 2nd hose is outlet which returns the coolant fluid from the heater core box back to the engine coolant system. Its likely these hoses and the heater core box are 20 years old and had never been replaced since the semi truck rolled off the assembly line in 1994. To diagnose for blockage, disconnect both hoses from the engine side, then connect an air blower to one hose to push pressurized air into this hose. Air should be coming out the other hose. If there's no air, or less air pressure, then there's blockage which is restricting hot coolant from passing through, resulting in little or no hot air when you turn on the "hot" air fan. Replace the heater core box first. If you're not getting hot air, then replace both hoses next.

The gas ducted heater wont turn off and is pushing cold air through the ducts. What should I do?


If you have checked the thermostat or control to make sure the fan setting is on "auto" and not on "On" or "Continuous" or something similar, then either the thermostat/control is bad and sending the wrong signal to the heater or the heater is not accepting the control because the relay/switch in the heater is stuck in the "on" position.

If you have the schematic for the thermostat/control then you can figure out how to simulate the control signal that would go to the heater and switch between "on" and "off" to see if that affects the operation of the fan. If you can simulate the switching and the fan turns off then the problem is in the thermostat/control. If the fan continues running then to problem is in the heater.

If you have determined the problem is in the heater and you have a schematic for that unit, then you can check the opening and closing of the switch that controls power to the fan to determine which component is not functioning.

Once you have found the malfunctioning unit, replace it or the assembly.

Refrigerator compartment not cooling


The evap. coil in in the freezer section, if the fan is stuck or bad then the ref section will not cool, you should open the door and push the button in for the light which turns off the evap, fan. when the door opens, so the cold is not lost as fast. So if the fan runs when you push the button in, then your problem is else where. The defrost timer could be bad and the evap coil iced up, if the timer is good the heater is bad, these are not hard to fix except the for heater is. Digging into refrigerators due to small in size can be hard. Hope this helps

For some reason the heater does not generate heat. the fan works but no heat. Any Ideas?


I've got an easy way for you to check, and then we can help you from there.
First pop open both lids to your furnace (this may require a screwdriver). Turn up your thermostat, push the safety interlock button in if it has one (it's a button that turns off the power when the doors are removed), and watch.

On most modern furnaces (past 20-25 years) you'll hear/see:
1. Inducer fan
2. orange glow (ignitor)
3. Gas valve opening and ignition (flames)
4. Main Fan.

that's normal heater operation.
The most common issue here is a burned out ignitor, in which case you wouldn't see the orange glow but the sequence would attempt to continue anyway (the gas valve will open and hiss gas, but it won't lite, then it'll give up and try again a few minutes later).

On older furnaces there's a pilot light to start with, the click of the gas valve and boom... ignition.

On new furnaces it's
Inducer fan
gas valve opening
spark - ignition
Main fan.

and there are some oddballs in between, particularly the Lennox Pulse. If that's your furnace just back away slowly and call a professional... some guys won't even touch those, so be sure to mention what it is... if you call a pro.

So go ahead and watch it run, then tell me/us what you see.

I have a Bosch tankless propane water heater 125fx. Yes, I know it's ****, we replaced the igniter switch last year. Then struggled with ordering parts to repair a water leak. During the leak, it was...


There is likely an onboard relay stuck in the open position.

This is a gas appliance and should be serviced by an authorized BOSCH repair center to avoid potential catastrophe.

Fire stoppes and fan still runs


1st take a air gun and blow in the fan to clear of debris. 2nd make sure to push your reset button on the back by your fan. Last you can calibrate your flame/heat by removing the fan housing & you will find 2 set screws try a small 1/16 turn on them and try to run, should run better for you.

E04 fan failure reading on thermo screen, heater turns on then off no heat, no blower...


There is one thing that may correct this issue. You can try to reset the heater. What you will need to do is open the right hand side door and look for the POWER toggle switch, turn that off. Then turn off the Circuit Breaker that goes to the heater. Wait about 15 to 20 minutes, then reverse the order- circuit breaker on, then heater on. Try and start the heater.

If the EO4 code comes up again, look on the backside of the display panel for the diagnostic lights. If there is a problem with the heater, there will be a RED light next to some letters. That will indicate what is causing the issue with the heater.

If you do not have a manual, you can find on online at the following link:

Hope this helps!
