Question about Heating & Cooling
I have cleaned big filter, I have cleaned the igniter and thermocell eye.
The pressure should be higher than 3.5 psi.
You have an output filter under the rear plastic cover that is held on with the 4 screws.
Check that filter to see if it is dirty.
The PSI for the heater should be on the side of the heater.

I had close to the same problem i drain the tank added new fuel still no diffrence so i removed the filter going to the tank pick up flushed out with brake clean it work fine for half a day . I knew then i was on the right track . I went to the local hardware store and bought a tune up kit that had the filter in it,I replaced the filter going to the tank pick up and it's been working fine even in cold weather. Fuel quality has a big part to play in it's abbility to burn in colder tempicures.

LAST RESORT IS THE BOARD, FIRST I WOULD TRY THE VACUM SWITCH TO SEE IF THAT IS WORKING, IT IS THE ROUND PEICE WITH A HOSE GOING TO IT, MAKE SURE IT IS NOT BLOCKED, YOU CAN BYPASS IT BY CONNECTING THE TWO WIRES TO IT, STICK A PAPER CLIP IN THE ENDS OF THE WIRE CONNECTORS, TRY IF THAT DONT WORK, CHECK THE LITTLE ROUND DISK THAT ARE LOCATED ON ALL SIDES, THESE ARE A SAFETY FETURE, THEY USALLY HAVE A LITTLE BOTTON ON THEM, JUST LITELY TAP THEM, TRY. MY GUT TELLS ME IT IS THE GAS CONTROL VALVE, FAN STARTS, IGNITOR STARTS, NO FUEL, THE GAS CONTROL VALVE CAN BE CHECKED WITH A VOLT METER, WHEN THE UNIT GOES THRU THE START SEQUENCE, THE TWO WIRES GOING TO THE GAS CONTEROL VALVE SHOULD HAVE 24 VOLTS OR ABOUT GOING THRU THEM IF SO VALVE IS BAD, USALLY IF IT IS THE M.BOARD YOU CAN LOOK ON THE BACKSIDE OF THE BOARD AND YOU WILL SEE EVIDENCE OF FAILURE,A BURN MARK, I HOPE THIS HELPS.

The R100 is a kerosene heater and the RLP100 is a propane heater so I am not sure when one you have.
If it is kerosene then you may need to check the pump pressure. Also the Safety swith can give you a cut out after 30 seconds.
If the unit is Propane then you could have a bad control board or a flame sensor.
You can call our service department at 1-800-475-5660
