First you need to get the power problem solved. pull the cover by the reset switch off and check the fuse. Once you have power again and it does the same thing it's most likely the ignitor thats bad. With the top cover off turn it on and watch the spark plug to see if you have spark. If you have good spark then it's the high heat sensor.

You must make sure the mist is not to close to the igniter . If it is it wont be misty enough to ignite. And make sure its in the path of the mist. If its new return it to the store.

Kerosene Heater starts up and then shuts down


David, you need a copy of the Troubleshooting Manual here:
http://www.toyotomiusa.com/OwnersManuals/Portable%20Heaters/Name%20begins%20with%20LR%20or%20LS/LR-350%20LR-450%20Troubleshooting%20manual.pdf
It sure sounds like a failure during pre-ignition. Page 5 covers both of your burn times with two different Flow charts.
A yellowish flame can mean a warped flame ring or incorrect air flow.

Igniter lites up fan kicks on and within 5 sec shuts off


Dustin, The ignitor only glows for 5 seconds, just long enough to ignite the fuel. The heater is shutting down because the photocell does not see the correct flame color.
Since you say "comes on for 5 seconds", I can only assume that there is a flame. You do not specify a lack of flame. I am also assuming that you have had the heater running this heater season and the problem just started.

YOU must find out if the problem is fuel delivery related or electronics related. Start by checking the pump pressure.
