    How do I locate, and check,and, remove the senoliod pump. Anything I should be aware of to not do to prevent any damage in disassemblyig?

    Heater first comes on as it should. Warm air blows out at low speed, and half of the burner lights show. As heater attempts to go to high speed-fan- and heat it shuts down,all burner lights flash,and 88:88 flashes. Occasionally high heat will come on with high fan speedn and run correctly with blue flame for about two minutes. Heater shuts down with all burner lights, and 88:88 flashing. At first of high heat starting there is some yellow flame. I cleaned the fuel filter on the heater. It Needed it. For the short time heater runs at high heat it preforms as it should. Thank you for your help so far, but I still have the same problem. Up untill now this heater had run flawlessly for about 12 yrs., with no cleaning or maintenence. It appears to me the high heat makes it shut down. Heat too high shut off mechanism possibly bad?

There is specific instruction on web site for 8888 code flashing, as bbtoast has instructed.

From a distance we are unable to do the test procedure, you will need to do it, follow the instructions given on THIS PAGE. you also will need a multimeter to test for the 2.4volts and also a 10K ohm resistor to test.

Without testing as instructed here are your options
shuts off after slowe burning ,8888 flashes, and a - 06c7dee.jpg plus failure of combustion motor.

Sorry no magic wand available, you will need to get your hands dirty, part identifiers and circuit diagrams are also on given site

I think you will find that Brian has already indicated this much and there is not anything more anybody could tell you.

Cheers.

    Did you try changing the fuel with fresh as suggested as well as the replacement of the filter that you completed?

Have you looked at, and or followed the troubleshooting suggestions at this website?

There is a full troubleshooting guide for your model. Let me know if you have checked this site out, then give me more details as to any other indications.

How old is this unit, how long has it been plugged in to the current electric outlet, etc.

Thanks

Brian

    Please also see the manufacturer website which is:

    OK



    Did you read the troubleshooting guide?



    I believe that you must have either followed the instructions, and it did not fix the problem?



    If so, I believe that you have an electrical problem inside of your unit.



    Are you able to perform this type of procedure?



    If not, then you should consult a suitable repairperson that is qualified to work on your equipment. If you followed the troubleshooting guide, please tell me what else you have determined.



    Thanks

    If the unit has sat unused for 3 years, there may be other unknown issues. Kerosene that has sat more than 6 months becomes unstable, and condensation (water...think corrosion)can build up.



    I recommend a professional to look the unit over completely, as there may be more issues than are obvious.



    What I am saying is that you may replace the solenoid, and still have other problems, and still need service. But you will have already spent the money on the solenoid!



    Good Luck

Burner lights but then shuts off after about a minute


What's happening is a good indication that the pilot assembly and the burner assembly may need cleaning. Insects can really clog it up. If after thoroughly cleaning the pilot and burner assemblies the burner still shuts off,check the gas tank and make sure it's at east 2/3rds full. After reconnecting the hose to the tank, open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow) until the valve is full open. Then attempt to light the pilot and the burner. If every things works as it should, you solved the problem.

If you find you need to order a thermocouple, I have provided a link to the Blue Rhino Company, the manufacturer of Uniflame Patio Heaters and you can order it thru them.

I have an endless summer 92000 table top propane heater. Lights fine, but the flame does not burn at the edge of the burner. Instead, it only burns in the very center of the burner... much like a Bunsen...


Actually, it's a gas pressure issue. But, it's fairly easy to solve. First, you need to be sure that your LP Tank has a sufficient amount of gas. If it does, turn the propane tank valve OFF. Disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes. Then reconnect the hose to the tank and turn the valve ON VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow). Once the valve is fully open, light the burner as you normally do and turn the burner flames to HIGH. Has the burner flame returned to normal? If so, you solved the problem. Just remember to always turn the tank valve ON very, very slowly.

If it didn't solve the problem, you will need to replace the heater's hose/regulator assembly. Generally, i's the same type that a gas grill uses. So, it won't be hard to find one.

Hope this helped to troubleshoot and solve your problem. Please let me know.

My 441 monitor heater will ignite and then it burns for a little while then goes out and starts flashing.


sounds like your heater may be starving for fuel. check all your rubber hoses for cracks first and then continue troubleshooting from there.

My 441 model monitor heater kicks on but cuts off in about ten


Mine cut off also. I thought it was the wall plug. But as it turned out, I took the cover off the back, cleaned the filter (kinda like a blow dryer clogs in the back) and it is working fine now..... Hope that helps...

Burner mat


it is a fiberglass composite. it will not burn. its function is to soak up the kero coming into the burner pot for ignition. from the factory it is held in place by a refractory cement that tends to dry out after time and the edges of the mat curl up. I do repairs on my own monitor 441 and I use a 500 degree silicone adhesive that I got from the hardware store made by rutland stove cements.
