Take the top off of the heater and and clean the nozzel orifice, while you have it apart wipe off the photo cell and clean and regap spark plug. The nozzel unscews and you can clean it with a bread tie.

After this clean or change the fuel filter in the tank, and finally check the pump pressure and make sure it is inline with the owner manual. This is assuming that it is firing to begin with

check to see if the photo cell is clean.to check it open the side compartment and look for the blue and white wire comming from photo cell,on the reset switch there is a white wire and a blue wire.hook these two wires to gether at the switch and try to refire the unit.if the unit keeps running the photo cell is bad and NEEDS to be changed.if the unit shuts off the safety switch is bad.

Here is a link to your owner's manual... http://12.153.20.74/manuals/123919-01A.PDF. Look on page 8 and 10. It could be several things. It could only be a dirty fuel filter or the pump pressure may just need adjustment. If you need a part you can contact Master Parts at 800-466-1446 or you can find them on-line at www.masterparts.net. I hope this helps!

Have john deere 50 kerosene space heater has fuel,new plug,


if it trys to start when you turn the thermostate then thats not the problem, it has to be either the high heat limit control or the flame sensor. Mine did the same thing and I also thought the eye was working but as soon as I changed it the problem was solved. Pretty much all flame sensors are the same and you can get one from Mr. Heater for less than 3 bucks, same with the limit control.

Flame light flashes after unit runs for awhile.


Check for spark and clean your plug. If you have good spark it's one of two things, the high heat limit control or the flame sensor, my guess would be the flame sensor.

One of two things, a high heat limit control or the flame sensor, also check your air line that runs to the heater nozzle could be cracked, not enoughair to fuel mix will make it burn dirty.
