There are two different viscosity rates and two different calorific values here
if it worked well on kerosene keep it on that
if you want to use diesel then have a technician come and set it up for diesel

Runs an shuts off


So we are talking about the same won't stay lit I will describe both ways. One is when you lift your fingers off the knob it goes out that instant which is probably the thermocouple needs replaced,look to make sure the tip of the thermocouple is in the flame of the pilot light first. The secound version of it is it goes out in a few minutes up to a few hours.The second version is most common.There is a part called a Thermocouple that is mounted next to the pilot light, it is around 3/16 of a inch diameter 1 to 2 inches long and should be mounted so the tip is in the flame of the pilot light. This is what tells the gas valve the pilot light is burning. If any dust ,cat hair ,dog fur what have you gets around the base of the hole the gas from this pilot light comes out of it will bend the gas, which move the flame so it does not hit the thermocouple like it should, this is below the flame so what ever is in there diverting the flame dose not burn up.A draft from a fan or door could do it also.I have used a procom ventless heater as my only heat for 7 years and have to blow it out twice a year. I bought a new thermocouple at the same time I bought the heater to have in the closet in case it went bad some night, it is still hanging there .Because it sucks air in from the bottom past the flame and out the top everything in the air gets burnt into a fine ash dust. So if you use compressed air to blow out your unit you might want to hold a wet towel up in front of it hoping a lot of that white powder dust will stick to it instead of flying around the room . My flame always looks so much better ,less orange and more blue after this .

Ruud achiever 90 plus gas furnace flame goes out after few seconds


This could be water in the hoses that connect to the pressure switch , they should just pull off and blow then out also blow out the pressure switch , this sound like a moisture problem with all the bad weather you h, check air filter is not blocked .

My patio mushroom heater lights up ok but keeps going out by itself after about 5 to 10 minutes and then can be started again inatantainiously by starting pilot light and away you go until it goes out...


Hello,
Here's a few things to check. When you light the pilot, is it a strong blue pilot flame, a weak blue flame or a lazy yellow flame? Is it heating the thermocouple enough to make it red hot after a few minutes? If the pilot is small blue or lazy yellow flame, it may be dirty and need cleaned. When the burner lights, the weak pilot flame may diminish causing the thermocouple to cool off enough to shut down the main burner. Clean the dirty pilot orifice by using a can of compressed air with attached straw. (The same canned air you use to clean computer keyboards) Blow it into the pilot assembly where the pilot flame burns out from and blow thru the air holes on the side, if applicable. You might also check the thermocouple itself to make sure the tip is not partially burn't off. It should be a smooth, rounded tip. Replace the thermocouple if cleaning the pilot orifice doesn't solve the problem. Douglas

My Miller furnace occasionally stops in mid


If the flame looks good prior to the room air blower starting but becomes unstable when the blower starts, you have a crack or hole in the heat exchanger. I strongly suggest your technician do a test on it to see.

I have a Intertherm furnace model MMHA with United tech controller 1018 HSI. Flames starts up , fan runs but flame goes out and restarts after a few minutes. Keeps doing this, I don't see a proof of flame...


Maybe. There has to be some sort of flame sensor with this HSI module. Look on the wiring diagram for where it may be. If this model has a pilot that starts before the burners, it may be part of the ignition electrode or glow bar. If the burners just light, look at the far end of the burner box to make sure the flame is traveling down the entire length and hitting the sensor. If you find it, clean it off with a small tooth brush. Blow out the flame rail where the flame travels from burner to burner. Clean off the pilot assembly if it has one.

Rheem powervent ignites then goes out, electronic ignition.


Sounds like a bad thermocouple. This part sends a millivolt signal to keep the gas valve open but shuts it off when it cools - or if something goes wrong with the ignighter - to prevent fires. It's easy to replace and not super expensive. See your local Rheem dealer.
