Will not turn on. Unit has been working great until tonight. Was on but now off and will not come on. Unpluged it for an hour but still not working.


This same thing happened to me, and yesterday as well no less. I've had mine for a 3-4 years. I think It had run out of oil, which is weird because I've had a Holmes heater for nearly 10 years and it still has plenty of oil left. If you shake it, can you hear the oil? I went and got another from Target last night (it was the coldest night of the year) and can hear the oil swishing around in it as I set it up. Hope it last longer than another 3-4 years or my next one will be a Holmes.

Kerosene Space Heater Tip


I have repaired many kerosene space heaters in the past. The number one problem that I see is everyone expects the heater to just come on every winter when they plug it up. But usually it does not. It's been sitting in storage collecting dust. And then you hear them say "It worked fine last year". If everyone would just do this at the end of each winter and you are ready to store your heater, (Drain the fuel & clean your tank out). Check your filters and replace if needed. It is that simple. When you need it, do not put the same fuel that you have in a can or barrel (from last year) in the heater. Discard the old fuel properly & just purchase some fresh fuel and start off fresh. If you use the old fuel that was left in the heater or can/barrel, you are just looking for trouble. If you fire the heater off with the old fuel, you are just filling the heater with problems. Water is the problem. The fuel tanks/cans, ect. sweat during the hot months and it all settles in the bottom. Inspect your fuel before using it. Look for water/trash that has settled in the bottom. Discard as needed. You will be nice and warm instead of having heater problems when your freezing & needing heat. Just remember "start off fresh".

did you try cleaning the lens of the photocell, they git dirty from smoke ver time which regulates the flame or replace the nozzle, sounds like it could be getting plugged up? usually any heating store would have a nozzle for a couple bucks if you get the number off it. the nozzle is right where it comes out and they are common to plug up at times with wear

The heater fan runs for about 5 seconds , does not heat and than turns off.


This could be several problems. Check your fuel first. If it is old fuel from last year, get rid of it and fill with fresh. If it has water in the tank, your spraying water to your ignition source. If you have fresh fuel, it could be a fuel filter stopped up or your air pump is not set properly. Also check your ignitor to see if it is working properly. Some have a spark plug and some have a glow type ignitor.

Laser 72 is overheating. Top gets too hot to


Check the fan cage on the back, it should be cleaned to allow for adequate air flow. Be sure curtains are not getting pulled up to the fan cage.
This could also be due to a crack in the pot, or if you put too much fuel treatment in your fuel. Regardless of what is causing the overheat situation, an L 72 is a very old unit. You may not want to invest a great deal of money into repairing this unit. The manufacturer has discontinued several parts for the L 72 such as the main circuit board and the burner rings. Without these parts, you are out a heater.
If you can clean the fan cage and remedy the problem, that would be great. If it is a cracked pot, and you decide to replace, be sure that you know how long it has been since you replaced the ring. A ring in a Laser lasts about 7 years. If your technician does not have rings in stock, you could be out of luck when your unit needs a ring.
Be sure to plug the unit into a dedicated outlet and use a quality surge protector with at least 450 Joules to help protect the board. Hope this was of some help. If you have any further questions, visit www.keepuswarm.com. We do have inventory of these discontinued parts for Laser heaters if you decide to repair and your technician cannot get the needed parts.

When plugg in fan turns about a 1 second and stops. Used to work fine last year actually used it couple times this year too what seems tobe the problem thank you


sounds like an ignition problem. The fan is supposed to start first to get the airflow going, then the igniter should heat up (glow igniters) or start sparking (spark plug igniters), then the fuel starts pumping. If the igniter is not working the fuel won't start. Things to check.... igniter - see if it is intact, fuse (usually in the circuit board), If those are ok, then check fuel pump, fuel filter, air filter. Hope this helps.

This is a fuel delivery problem. Look for:
  1. always start troubleshooting fuel problems on a Hot Surface Ignitor heater by checking the pump pressure!
  2. restricted fuel filter
  3. air leak
  4. restricted nozzle
