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

The most common problem is a lack of air pressure. Air pressure is supplied by a pump attached the the motor shaft. Dirty air filter elements can inhibit the intake of air. The pump may be dirty internally also...especially if the fan does not spin freely when flicked. The black tubes transfer the air pressure to the nozzle and they crack and leak after awhile. the fuel filter in the tank can become clogged and the black fuel-to-nozzle line can leak also. The flame sensor can be faulty or dirty if your unit starts okay but goes out after a few seconds. Observe the spray pattern, it should be a very fine vee spray pattern. A dirty nozzle can inhibit ignition. The ignitor should spark when the unit is first turned on and be positioned at the edge of the spray pattern. Most of these units have a circuit control board which lights with a green LED if power is on to the board. Failure to turn on the spark or the motor when power to the board is OK...means a bad board. Power can be checked at the black and white leads from line voltage to the spade on the board.
