Re: all pro multi fuel

I had the same problem of the heater not working after sitting for a year. I drained the old kerosene and refilled with fresh kerosene. Works great.
p.s.-there was a lot of debris in the bottom of the tank.

Kerosene Space Heater Tip

I have repaired many kerosene space heaters in the past. The number one problem that I see is everyone expects the heater to just come on every winter when they plug it up. But usually it does not. It's been sitting in storage collecting dust. And then you hear them say "It worked fine last year". If everyone would just do this at the end of each winter and you are ready to store your heater, (Drain the fuel & clean your tank out). Check your filters and replace if needed. It is that simple. When you need it, do not put the same fuel that you have in a can or barrel (from last year) in the heater. Discard the old fuel properly & just purchase some fresh fuel and start off fresh. If you use the old fuel that was left in the heater or can/barrel, you are just looking for trouble. If you fire the heater off with the old fuel, you are just filling the heater with problems. Water is the problem. The fuel tanks/cans, ect. sweat during the hot months and it all settles in the bottom. Inspect your fuel before using it. Look for water/trash that has settled in the bottom. Discard as needed. You will be nice and warm instead of having heater problems when your freezing & needing heat. Just remember "start off fresh".

My heater is 155 it worked fine all last year but I got it out of my storage area for use this winter. It will start an run for about 15 seconds and trips the reset on the unit. What would make this...

First, locate the true model of the heater. Pro 155 only designates a series of heaters. It does not designate the actual model or technology used.

The reset (Safety Device) is the system's safety shut off. If everything is in perfect operating form the photocell looks into the chamber for a flame. If the flame goes out (flame-out), the the photocell sends a signal to the reset and the heater shuts down.

You must troubleshoot to find out whether your problem is a fuel delivery problem or an electronics problem.

My first look would be to look into the eye of the photocell for an insect or nest of some sort. Next check the fuel tank for water or debris that may be restricting the fuel flow and causing a flame-out.

Cheap charlie pellet stove/pel-pro runs for 10min then shuts down

The auger is controlled by a T-stat on the side of the combustion chamber. Open the side of the stove and you can see the auger motor and the thermostat that feeds it. It has a manual reset button on the back of the thermostat, press it.

All Pro 200t Will not ignite

John- the ignitor does not stay on for the duration of the running time. It only stays on for the first 5 seconds. This is long enough for the flame to ignite and perpetuate itself, assuming the fuel delivery system is up-to-par. The photocell monitors the flame color and if the flame becomes off-color then the photocell tells the control board to shut the unit down. Naturally, too rich or too lean affects flame color.

Now, I'm confused by your description "the heater cycles 3 times". Tell me more.

I'm glad to see that you checked the pump pressure. Have you used soapy water to check for air leaks all the way to the nozzle? A leak in the airline, fuel line, or a crack in the nozzle adapter will cause no fuel delivery, or reduced fuel delivery as well as reduced atomization of the fuel - all of which can cause a lack of combustion. A restricted fuel filter will cause starvation.

Eliminate all possibilities of a fuel delivery problem before you start blaming electronics because there is not much way to test the board or the photocell successfully without DESA's diagnostic tool. Unfortunately, replacement of the componants is cheaper than the tool.
