Question about Mr. Heater Heating & Cooling

2 Answers

I have a Mr. heater torpedo heater that when you hit the start switch the flame just starts pulsating on and off.

Its of course getting fuel and spark, fan is turning. I can watch the nozzle and see the flame going on and off with igniter never loosing spark. I did find that the fuel lines are cracked in a few places, but doesn't look like all the way through. Could that be the problem?

I have the exact same problem but my fuel lines have no cracks. I have a constant spark but it seems the fuel is not constant and causing the pulsing. I've checked the pressure, cleaned the filters, drained the tank, added new fuel. After about 15-20 seconds the heater shuts down and gives me a E1 code. I've also cleaned the photo sensor and reseated the connections on the control board.
