Clean all of your filters and the spark plug and go back to useing K1 kerosene. Diesel fuel has a higher ignition temp. burns dirty and has a tendency to gel.

When heater starts up it puffs fumes then lites


Generally, if the heater puffs fumes at start up it is because there is not instantaneous combustion.
What causes this?
  1. Worn nozzle
  2. Incorrect (click for instructions) air pump pressure
  3. Spark plug carboned
  4. fuel filter restricted
  5. Air leak or vac leak between the pump and the nozzle
Generally speaking, if the fuel is being delivered as a FOG not a SPRAY, and the spark is strong and properly oriented there will be immediate combustion at start-up.

Been running #2 diesel and does fine. Now it wont ignite! Bad fuel? How do I clean from system?


Your current purchase of fuel may have water in it. Go to an auto parts store and get a dryer/stabilizer for diesel fuel. That may temporarily solve your problem. I'd empty the heater tank and only fill with the treated fuel. The next time you buy diesel, go to someplace that sells to tractor trailer drivers. That way, you'll know the fuel hasn't set in the storage tanks that long.

Hope that helps solve your problem.

I just bought a spc k125 and was wondering if i can burn diesel fuelin it or just kerosene


I looked in the manual-- and under operating instructions it says:

Use only Kerosene or #1 fuel oil. Never use gasoline,
naphtha, paint thinner, alcohol or other fuels of any kind.


What would you say Diesel fuel is?

I have a master 165,000 air forced heater it burns kerosene/diesel an it says multi fuels.it has been a very good clean burning heater,an now when it cuts[ off ] it blows out white smoke ,an now it does...


it should take care of the problem for you.... but if it does not... then you need to tear your pump apart and clean the reeds in the little black wheel inside your pump.... the 4 reeds should freely slide up and down in that little black wheel they are in... if they are not moving very well, if not at all then your not pumping any air to pick up your fuel

Do i need to replace filter if i have been using kerosene and want to switch to diesel


No, the kerosene is number 1 fuel oil and Diesel is number 2. No.2 is a heavier fuel with more BTU's than the kerosene. After you have burned the diesel for awhile, you may want to change the filter. If you have trouble getting the diesel to burn, mix it with 25% kerosene and it will flow and go through the nozzle easier

I have a portable forced air heater Model R55A heater size 55,000/Hr can I use diesel fuel instead of kerosene?


You can, but prolonged use of diesel fuel will burn out the cone faster. Too hot. And it stinks alot worse than kerosene.

Pro 110, runs 10 min., blows white smoke ,shuts off


the first thing you need to do is go back to useing K1 kerosene, diesel fuel not only burns dirty but also has a tendency to gel up in cold weather which could be makeing it hard for the heater to draw the proper amount of fuel. To reset the pressure you will need a gage, it should run at about 6-7 psi. you can order a pressure gage from mr. heater online, they are by far the cheapest I have found as they are the actual manufacturer or call 1-800-251-0001
