All Pro Kerosene SPC-K50 runs intermittenly

This type of heater can be temperamental because they are often stored for long periods in unsuitable conditions, aren't serviced very often and the remnants of fuel are left inside the tank during storage.

Kerosene has a fairly high natural water content, the tank is vented and normal air pressure changes will allow further moisture and dirt to enter the heater.

Good heater operation depends on very clean and uncontaminated fuel. Tiny dirt particles and contaminants can corrode, wear or jam the spinning spray head.

I suggest you service the heater - a thorough internal clean of the fuel system, clean the filter(s) and spray head, check and if necessary adjust the air pump regulator pressure and ensure the spark plug is clean, in good condition, is correctly gapped and the spark is constant and steady.

Your heater should then be ready for the coming winter season at the end of which, perhaps different summer storage arrangements would be advisable.

My White Rodgers Gas Valve 37C72U keeps going out. It burns well for ten to twenty minutes and then just shuts off. It lights first press but goes out again after the above time. All flames appear good....

have you replaced the thermocouple connected to the gas valve?if they get bad they will shut off gas flow,and no you cannot adjust the pilot flame size which is controlled by the valve also

My heater starts then cuts out within a minute I've cleaned everything has new fuel whats wrong? its the same as the other posting.

You need to make sure the pressure it correct and that you have no leaks or cracks on the rear cover of the pump.
Sometimes you will get a small crack in the plastic housing and it will cause low pressure.
Check to make sure the photocell is clean and lined up properly to see the flame.
If you hold you finger over the pump adjustment screw you should see the pump pressure go much higher.

Rinnai 556 F sputters when starting

As a licenced plumber the only thing I will suggest is to call someone and have them service the heater.

Gas is deadly, and it sounds like there is something blocking the injector port, causing the gas/air mixture to not mix properly, which will make the flame change colour and characteristics.

The burner may need to come out, the inlet gas pressure will need to be checked and other things.

The rinai heaters are also expensive, as you would know, and trying to fix it yourself is dangerous. Also, once serviced by a plumber you will have the peace of mind to know it has been serviced properly and will run well for many more years.

You will need to find a licenced gas fitter.
