Check the air pump. If you are lucky the rotor is busted. If not, see if the fan spins freely with no binding. If so, the starter relay is bad, if equipped. Some heaters have external relays, others have internal relays and are not serviceable. Could also be a bad bearing. Could also be - someone sat on the heater or dropped something on it, or it fell out of the truck and the sheet metal is squashed and is against the fan blade.

First thing is to download the service manual.
You need to make sure the filters are clean and that you are getting the proper air pump pressure.
If the units starts up and runs good and slowly goes out it will normally be due to a lack of fuel getting to the nozzle. When there is not enough fuel being delivered to the nozzle from either a clogged fuel filter of dirty air pump output filter the unit will slowly shut down from lack of fuel.
If the unit shuts down while it is running properly and the nose come is orange then you probably have a problem with a photocell or the flame out control.

This type of heater is meant to be used in a ventilated area. The fumes will build up if you are in a closed area and it will soon become overpowering. This can also be dangerous from poisonous gases. Take heed to the warning label on the unit. It probably states use in a well ventilated area.
Hope that helps you.
