Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

Ihave a 441 monitor kerosene heater,burner status light are flashing and the heater shuts down.the heater has had a turnup, tank filter has been replaced, flow has been checked,igniter or flame dtecti

The only think I have not done is count the number of flashs. The heater is stays on for about 2 days and then goes off. When this first began I could turn the heater off and start it right a way. Now at times it will take 1 hr or more before it will start. I think something is over heating an it turnes itself off as a safety. I hope you are able to help me ?

    I had the same problem and the flame rod was really crusty. cleaned and put it back and it seems to be working fine now. However, there was no saving the gasket. it disintegrated. Is it really necessary?

Look and see if the part that stubs out the wick upon turning it off is stuck up or not dis engaging properly. if stuck up the over heating would shut it down!.

SOURCE: my kerosene monitor heater with the model number

First thing to do is clean the flame rod. Take the black grill off of the front of the heater (6 ro 7 screws). Now locate the flame rod. It is beside the window where you can look into the burner. It has one wire going to it. Be careful so you don't damage the gasket. The rod goes in then straight down, so you will have to turn it to get it out. You can clean it with some steelwool or emory cloth. Reinstall it and try the heater.
Listen to the heater. If it cuts off, does the fuel pump start making a thumping before the heater cuts off? If it does, the heater is running out of fuel for some reason. I know you checked the filter, but did you check the strainer in the fuel sump. You can find it on the right side of the heater at the bottom. Make sure you turn off the fuel at the barrel before you remove it and have some rags ready to soak up the kerosene that will come out. Clean the filter with some kerosene if it needs it.
Let me know what you find and don't forget to rate my answer. Thanks.

SOURCE: BURNER STATUS LIGHTS START FLASHING, SHUTS DOWN!

Not sure exactly what is meant by half way it shuts off. My furnance wouldn't heat to 68 degrees from a setting of 63 degrees on the setback thermostat without shutting down several times with a single flashing led. It would reset after an hour or so until it finally reached the 68 degrees. The problem turned out to be the tube that drains the water from the blower assembly. It had a belly in the middle which would cause the water to sit and block the airflow sensor for the gas value. Lifted tube to allow proper drainage to correct.

Shuts off after slowe burning ,8888 flashes, and all burner lights fash. Monitor 441 oil heater.


There is specific instruction on web site for 8888 code flashing, as bbtoast has instructed.

From a distance we are unable to do the test procedure, you will need to do it, follow the instructions given on THIS PAGE. you also will need a multimeter to test for the 2.4volts and also a 10K ohm resistor to test.

Without testing as instructed here are your options
06c7dee.jpg plus failure of combustion motor.

Sorry no magic wand available, you will need to get your hands dirty, part identifiers and circuit diagrams are also on given site

I think you will find that Brian has already indicated this much and there is not anything more anybody could tell you.

Cheers.

I have a master 150000 btu kerosene direct fire heater that runs for 5 minutes then shuts down and blows white smoke. what is the problem?


The white smoke is the kerosene fuel hitting the hot combustion chamber. Your flame has went out. The cause for this could be many. The first thing you need to do is check your fuel. Remove your fuel cap and look at the bottom of the tank for trash or water. Use a good flash light. It will all settle to the bottom. If so, drain and clean out your tank. Add fresh kerosene. Check your fuel filter. Replace if dirty. Test again. If problem continues, It is possible that your photo eye could be deffective or just dirty. It is located next to the ignitor or spark plug. It sees the flame. If the flame goes out, the unit shuts down. The flame has to be smooth (not sputtering). Water in the fuel will make it sputter and the unit will shut down. When the water/moisture in tank settles to the bottom, your suction fuel line is just off the bottom which results in it picking up the water instead of good fuel. Always disgard the old fuel from previous year and start with fresh fuel. This will cut down alot of your problems in the future.

My 441 monitor heater will ignite and then it burns for a little while then goes out and starts flashing.


sounds like your heater may be starving for fuel. check all your rubber hoses for cracks first and then continue troubleshooting from there.

My monitor heater 441 comes on but after 3 mins.or so the burner lights come on full then starts blinking still no flames no heat.


Not a lot of details to go on. Does the pump make a loud ticking sound? That would mean it isn't getting any fuel to it and you would need to check your filter and the strainer in the fuel sump. You may need to check your igniter also. If it isn't working the heater will not light and kerosene will be building up in the burner everytime you try to light it. If you have a clamp on ammeter you can clamp around 1 of the igniter wires and should get 2 - 4 amps when you turn the heater on. If this doesn't help you can email me a nitensheaterservice@earthlink.net.

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.
