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

Forced Air Kerosene Space Heater Spark plug


I have an older COOP 50,000 BTU forced air kerosene heater. I tried burning #2 in it. Result was rapid fouling of the spark plug. I removed the ground electrode from the plug allowing the spark to jump to the shell. It has never fouled the plug again, runs perfect.

Check the ignitor circuit. Check also your ignitor spark gap making sure it is not too far or shorted.

All Pro Kerosene SPC-K50 runs intermittenly


This type of heater can be temperamental because they are often stored for long periods in unsuitable conditions, aren't serviced very often and the remnants of fuel are left inside the tank during storage.

Kerosene has a fairly high natural water content, the tank is vented and normal air pressure changes will allow further moisture and dirt to enter the heater.

Good heater operation depends on very clean and uncontaminated fuel. Tiny dirt particles and contaminants can corrode, wear or jam the spinning spray head.

I suggest you service the heater - a thorough internal clean of the fuel system, clean the filter(s) and spray head, check and if necessary adjust the air pump regulator pressure and ensure the spark plug is clean, in good condition, is correctly gapped and the spark is constant and steady.

Your heater should then be ready for the coming winter season at the end of which, perhaps different summer storage arrangements would be advisable.

R155 and unburnt Kerosene


Check plug gap and depth of the tip. The spark may be to far into the fuel spray flooding it out. DESA says use a standard spark plug washer or two for shims if needed.
