The photo electric cell is not working
it is doesn't see fire , it shuts off the fuel so that excess fuel is not going to the chamber that can cause an explosion or fire if it ignites
new items , take it back for a warranty check or refund
for older units tale it to a service agent for repairs

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

If it is a gas,thermo type heater,then the thermocouple is bad.Check and make sure the pilot lite flame is touching the tip of the thermocouple,if it is not,adjust it,to where it will.If it is not adjustable,replace the thermocouple.

Carbon Monoxide?


Use of these systems have been banned in some areas, so check with local authorities first. They present a higher fire risk then other type of heaters. Secondly always read the manufactures manuals for proper set up and operation.
To answer your question all kerosene heaters emit a threatening amount of carbon monoxide. However an accurate combustion analysis performed by a licensed tech will tell you exactly how much regardless of what the manufacturer may claim. Also different types of kerosene will emit different levels. So definitely read the instructions. Best of luck!
