Replace the nozzle and check the fuel filter - if this is a kerosene heater. under the access plate is a round filter - remove it completely or change it.

My Dayton 110,000 btu kerosene torpedo heater... The fan kicks on for a couple secs then kicks off it seems as it's not getting any fuel what should I do

Could be the Flame out sensor cutting the power to the electrics and therefore the forced air fan. It forces the heater to shut off should the flame extinguish. It might also be the temperature limit control which also turns the heater off if the internal temperature rises to an unsafe level. If either of these two possibilities the unit may need a service.

It starts up good then stops and a big cloud of smoke comes out. Got a new ignighter (50$) but still doing the same. can you help me? You could have an air problem. Take the cover off the heater and see if it runs ok, if it does then you have an air problem, check for bad lines or cracked housings

Reddy Heater kerosene 110,000 btu . plup it in, fan runs, blows smoke out the front, leaks kerosene also from front, i have cleaned photo cell, replaced plug, cleaned filter and checked lines for cracks,...

Just because there is fuel & spark does not necessarily mean there will be combustion. The fuel must be delivered at the correct pressure, the correct volume, and must be delivered as a fog- not a mist.

My suggestions:
  1. set the pump pressure
  2. be sure the fuel filter is clean
  3. be sure no air leaks or vacuum leaks
  4. Desa recommended annual replacement of the nozzle. They wear out. When was the last time yours was changed?

My ready heater 100,000 will run for app. 5hrs then flame out and blow smoke or unburned fuel the same several times pressure is right

If the heater continuously has a 5 hour run-time check to see if the fuel pickup tube goes to the bottom of the tank. If broken, cracked, or shortened the fuel will stop being picked up when air is sucked rather than fuel.

My reddy heater is 110,000 BTU. It started spitering and sputtering like it was out of kerosene, but still has a half a tank. Any ideas?

If you brought the heater to my shop the absolute first thing I would do is shine a flashlight into the tank. Look for water droplets (or trash) rolling around the bottom of the tank. Keep in mind if there is a "layer" of water the light won't find it. Drain the tank if there is a "hint" of contaminants.

Next, I would check the fuel filter for stoppage or restriction.

Colman Furnace keeps kicking on & off

Denise, my heater not a coleman (a monitor heater (oil) kept turning off when the temp got really cold. I would advise you to ask if you can do this, I addded an additive to my drum outside which holds the fuel. Because the deisel thickens up when it gets cold, which makes the heater have a harder time distributing the fuel to the heater. So far the heater has not kicked off.

There are any number possibilities for intermittent running.
1. Bad ground connection at the Ignition Device (transformer, spark box)
2. restricted fuel filter causing fuel starvation
3. crack in the plastic end cover
4. crack in the airline
5. crack in the fuel line
6. crack in the nozzle adapter
7. water in the fuel
8. Others I’m sure I left out

You must be the one to troubleshoot & find the cause.
