You are deffinitely not getting enough air to fuel mix, check your lines for breaks. If they are ok you will probably need to pressure check it.

.my kerosene 125000 comes on but the fan does not


The motor drives the fan on one end and the air pump on the other end. From your description it sounds as if the air pump is not producing air, or enough air, or you are losing the air before it reaches the nozzle, which is the point where the vacuum for fuel delivery is created.

You must start by taking/setting the pump pressure, the fix the defect.

Kerosene will not ignite, new igniter, fuel comes out of injecter but fuel does not ignite. Does kerosene go bad?


Hello,

Yes it loses volitility, but i think you have water that you are trying to burn. Completely empty the tank and go get new kerosene. The can you have could have water in it as well. Water gathers in any tank or can, from condensing water over the spring, summer and fall months the heater is not used. With a fuel change you should be as good as the first day you used your heater.

Hope all goes well, and stay warm.

Is it true that if you use moth balls with the fuel in my kerosene heater it burns cleaner & there wont be any build up on the wick? I get alot of soot build up on the wick of my kerosene heater &...


I can't answer about moth balls cleaning the wick but off the top of my head I would not try it as I do not know just what gases your unit would give off. I use kerosene heaters and find that after about 5 tanks of fuel I put on a pair of household rubber gloves, remove the chimney and turn the wick all the way up. Then I roll the wick between my fingers and get the hard carbon off. Once I have the wick clean I use the shop vac to vacuum it all up. I have found that by doing this my wick is never dirty, I do not get any smoke and the wicks last more than 20 years. Probably a better idea than moth balls. Let me know how you make out.

My monitor 41 smells like kerosene when it sits idle, repair man came out and told me he fixed it, but it still smells


Does it smell like raw kerosene or exhaust. If it smells like kerosene it sounds like you may have a fuel leak. If you can remove the grill, look inside and check for any kerosene in the bottom and in the tray under the heater. You should also check your fuel line for leaks. If it smells like exhaust look inside and on back of the heater for any black soot marks. There are a couple of o-rings, 1 in the exhaust connection in back of the heater and 1 in the flue pipe where the exhaust from the heater connects. There's also several gaskets in the combustion chamber that could be leaking. Hope this helps. If you need any more info, you can send me an email (nitensheaterservice@embarqmail.com).

Heater used once 3 yrs ago. Now wont start.


When the heater hums is the fan turning. If it is I would add more Kerosene. There is no shut off but the Kerosene is sucked out a tube from the top of the tank. This tube does not reach quite all the way to the bottom of the tank. Your heater should hold about 9 gallons if it is empty. A couple of gallons would give it plenty to run though. Let me know.

Kerosene heater smoking


Hi, I would say that you have a build up of soot. Kerosene and propane heaters are notorious for this, you wouldn't think so but it happens a lot.Carbon up and soot.You will have to open it up, the combustion chamber and give it a good cleaning. I would wear a dust mask as soot as i am sure you know, will get on and in everything. Please let me know how it goes and if this solves the problem.
Good Luck,

60000 heater kerosene fires up but shuts off shortly after


Check the entire fuel like to the tank. They tend to break, plug up, etc. which causes a lot of problems. The strainer in the bottom also plugs up. Rick
