The first thing you need to do is put some kerosene in it, it's a simple step that a lot of people tend to forget. After that make sure it's plugged in and turned on and it should fire right up.

Won't stay on , not very consistent

You don't state whether this heater has the old style spark plug technology or the newer Hot Surface Ignitor technology. Troubleshooting will be different, depending on the style of heater, because the electronics are different.

You ask "what are the two adjustments screw heads on the back of heater". As stated by tros1 these are A. an air pump adjustment screw, and B. a pressure relief valve.

Both technologies require correct pump pressure in order to deliver the fuel at the proper rate. For a pressure setting video

Reply with the model number and/or the specific ignition technology and maybe we can help.
