Master space heater cutting out

Hi

I have a master space heater (small 20kW) model. It was running fine until a week or so ago. It started to cut our after a five minutes, then three, then one and now after a few seconds. There is no thermostat cut off on this model. It has a photo cell cut off, which sits at the back of an inch and half long rubber tube. The photocell looks perfectly clean, and I have not touched it. The only thing that has changed is new fuel. I bought a 25 litre can of heater fuel which is basically diesel wiht a 61C flashpoint. Any ideas folks?

Last time i had problems with one of these doing a similar thing ,and this was the arc that ignites the fuel .the carbon rods that arc across to ignite the fuel,used to run them on red diesel so i think fuel is ok ,so either the carbon rods need adjusting closer together or the high tension coil is playing up .One or the other if not both things can cause this type of heater to play up,same principle as my steam cleaner which i fixed with a length of metal car brake pipe to replace one of the carbon rods that was burnt out

Have a master 165,000 btu turbo heater it always starts and runs but sometimes it will run for 5 minutes 7 or 10 no matter where i set the built in thermostat,any tips ????


I would start by checking the fuel filter form the tank to the nozzle. If this is getting dirty the heater will slowly start loosing the red glow on the nose cone until the until shuts down.
Normally if it sets for a few minutes it will start and run again.

You can order a filter replacement kit that has all of your filters included.

Clutch works fine until. except that it doesnt


I don't have that shop manual, but the slave cylinder looks like a small brake master cylinder and is on the firewall on the driver side.
Check to make sure floor pan is not split by slave cylinder. Some had weak floors that needed reinforcing. Ford had a kit.

Otherwise, replace slave cylinder. tascafordparts.com sells at discount.

Please rate as fixya if this solves your problem.
Report back and good luck

There is a thermal cut off on the motor. when it overheats it will trip and not start until the motor cools down. Replace the motor to solve the problem.
