This can be caused by an uneven or worn wick. Replace the wick and make sure there is no debris in the wick channel as when you shut off the heater if a piece of wick or debris is sticking up it will smoke after shutting down untill it has cooled.

There are four possible answers to this problem, if the heater starts normally, runs for a few seconds or minutes and the shuts down but was still running normally at the time of shut down, this could be caused by the photocell, also known as the flame out control. This safety device may be failing, shutting down even though the heater is working normally, check the operation of the photocell. The second cause may be partial fuel filter blockage, the heater is effectively starving itself of fuel, so the flame blows out, hence the puff of smoke, and then shuts down on the safety cut out. Third cause, if this model has a compressor at the rear of the motor, the problem could be low pump pressure, caused by wear or contamination of the carbon blades, this would cause the wrong amount of fuel to be syphoned up, with weak fuel mix the heater may blow itself out and shut down. The fourth cause, perhaps indicated by the puff of white smoke, is contamination of the fuel with water, water will cause the white smoke and also is indecated by white residues or a power like substance on the end plate of the heater which glows red hot when burning.

Coleman heater 3500a820 lots of smoke and now only blower works no heat


I am not sure about the heater type, but likely the heater element controller shorted out or the heater elements shorted - hence the black around where the wires go into the electric box. If you're lucky, the wires shorted to the side of the box. With the power off, open up the electrical box, mark which wires go where, remove them from the board, remove the wires from the electric box, then using electrical tape, tape up the exposed ends of the wires. Spread them out so they do not touch each other. Turn on the 60 amp breaker - if it trips, then your wires are bad and need replaced. If it does not trip, then the problem is with the heater. Do not let anyone near the wires when testing them! Don't forget to turn off the breaker if it does not trip. Again, turn off the breaker if it did not trip.

Heater smokes but doesn't turn on


It sounds like you have a dirty nozzle. Remove and replace with the same type. It may not be spraying a fine enough mist.
Hope this helps.

Blowing smoke immediately prior to auto-shut-off


Try a new CAD falme sensor, or high limit control, both very cheap.

All Pro 170t kerosene heater is throwing raw fuel out the burner


It sounds like it is currently working .. is that right? Or does it only work if you let it sit for an hour, still? The blue smoke probably is from the residual fuel not burnt when it "threw raw fuel out the end" some the fuel probably drained to a low point ..outside of the combustion chamber and then may have ignited after shut down.. to cause the blue smoke out the back... when you turned it off.

If when your starting it up... it doesn't start the first time.. wait 10seconds then try again.. noting what it apparently does.. and doesn't do. does it just 'through fuel for 5 seconds.. does the fan spin .. and push air at the same time when its starting? If yes for both, does the ignitor ignite the fuel/air mixture, briefly then it shuts off.. ?? Hope this line of thinking helps you out

THE HEATER STARTS THEB BLOWS ALOT OF SMOKE


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.
