30,000 btu kerosene ready heater

I have a ready heater that is pretty much automatic. Plug and play if you will.
it started to go bad a week or so ago and i thought i could solve the problem myself. Thinking logically, first i tested the polarity of the igniter and no problems found. I then cleaned and replaced the fuel nozzle, same problem.
Lastly i replaced the photocell and still can't keep it going.
Heater lights right away but goes out after about 20 seconds or so.
Guess I'm not a heater mech after all. Any suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Check pressure of the air compressor should be in the 3.0 to 3.5 range. not enough won't suck fuel, too much will blow out the flame. igniter either lights or it doesn't no in between. does the main flame come on?

Spark plug fired,( Sears -30,000 BTU) starts and runs for approx. 30 seconds, then cuts off. The reset button does not reset for restart for about another 20 - 30 seconds. Then the unit will restart...

check and see if the heater has a high temperature limit switch. if it does it will shut the machine off until it cools down.. just replace it with a new one.

Try a part from a similar heater like Mr. Heater Most of the parts are identical they just mount a little different, put the new part on your old mount. Had a similar problem with my dyna glo and with a little rigging it works like new.
