It souds like it is starveing for air, I would check all of the filters and the air line that runs to the combustion nozzle as it may have a crack or break in it. The nozzle does tend to get pretty hot and the lines get brittle after a while.

Added gas to diesel multi fuel turbo heater


Your talking about 1/8 cup of gas, per gallon of diesel. I think it should be fine but it will run hotter than usual. You will need to keep an eye on the flame and after it warms up. If the flame continues to pass by the cone then you will need to drain between 1 to 2 gallons out and store it (You will need to use your best judgement). Fill the heater back up with new diesel and use. when you run out, add 1 gallon of the tainted diesel to 2 gallons of new diesel and repeat. You will need to pay attention to the performance and make your own determination. Please remember that these units are to be used in well ventilated areas. They produce a lot of carbon monoxide. Good luck., .

Will heater run on diesel?Heater will not start soon as power turned on and will not stay running.Red light starts blinking.


It MIGHT run on diesel but it will be a smokey affair. They are made to run on filtered kerosene which is a lot cleaner. Using diesel fuel will also hog it up very quickly.

Flame wont stay on, runs for about 5-10 secs and


usually the thermocouple wears out. Make sure the thermocouple is in the flame, if it is, and it still wont stay lit I would change that first.
