Outside or inside? Outside, blow off any dust. Inside, then you need to disassemble the unit. You need to talk to the people here:
There are many experts on Monitors there.

How do heat exchangers work?

The heat exchanger is a thin metallic component of a fossil-fueled furnace whose purpose is to transfer heat from the gas or oil buning on one side of the sealed chamber to the air passing across and coming in contact with the other side of the sealed chamber. By 'sealed' I mean the burning gasses do not come in contact with the air that circulates within the living space.

My 441 monitor heater will ignite and then it burns for a little while then goes out and starts flashing.

sounds like your heater may be starving for fuel. check all your rubber hoses for cracks first and then continue troubleshooting from there.

My 441 model monitor heater kicks on but cuts off in about ten

Mine cut off also. I thought it was the wall plug. But as it turned out, I took the cover off the back, cleaned the filter (kinda like a blow dryer clogs in the back) and it is working fine now..... Hope that helps...

My Monitor 441 will not ignite?


When you try to light the heater do you ever hear a thumping noise? If so, you have a fuel delivery problem. If you never heat the thumping noise you have a fuel pump or air safety switch problem. If it's been snowy you could have a covered flue pipe. This will cause the fuel pump not to come on. If your Monitor is your only source of heat I would be looking for a local repair guy that knows the Monitor heater.

I have a monitor 441 and it will not ignite! I cleaned the strainer, and the igniter is getting warm. But, no flame? help anyone??


Do you hear a thumping noise on the lower right side of the unit just before it starts flashing the light bars? If so you have a fuel supply problem. If there is no thumping noise I would check the flue pipe on the outside to be sure it is clear. Lastly I would remove the copper fuel pipe from the burner and try to start the stove. If fuel comes out the pipe the pump is good. If fuel comes out I would stick a paper clip down the fuel nozzle about 3 inches, it could be blocked with carbon. If no fuel comes out the pipe, you will need to get a manual or a tech to help you out. The choices would now be fuel pump or main board, both of which are pricey so you don't want to make a mistake.

That being said, when was the last time you had the burner serviced? Mat, ring and all the gaskets involved? A Monitor 441 needs to be looked at about every 3 years to be sure you get through the heating season.

Good luck,
