    I have this same problem. Where is the pilot orifice?

  • Vern Janisch Oct 16, 2013

    There is no pilot.. It has an electric start. There is a fuel filter that goes into the tank which may have dirt in it. I just replaced mine, about $12. Also clean the electric start mechanism. You have to take off the handle and both sides (there is one screw towards the back) then you can see the screws which holds the top shrouds on. from there it's easy to see how it works.

Take the top off of the heater and and clean the nozzel orifice, while you have it apart wipe off the photo cell and clean and regap spark plug. The nozzel unscews and you can clean it with a bread tie.

After this clean or change the fuel filter in the tank, and finally check the pump pressure and make sure it is inline with the owner manual. This is assuming that it is firing to begin with

    sounds like it may very well be a photo cad cell problem. If the cad cell is dirty or broken, it does not "see" a flame and then shuts the unit down on safety. Try cleaning the front glass eye of the cad cell with a Q-tip.

Our dyna glo pro kerosene heater 2 year old heater still works, but not near as hot as it should be and has some fumes like it is not burning the kerosene efficiiently. We tried calling the manufactor from the users manual, but we hear they have gone out of bussiness. How can we get parts? We think it is the fuel pressure regulator. CFM is the manufactor.

You might have dust in the pilot orfice . If you do the pilot flame curves up and dosen't touch the thermo coupling enough .

Have a Remington space heater, runs for approx. 10 min. then shuts off, then if unplugged or switch turned off, then it will start again for short period of time


There may be an overheating sensor that is causing shutdown after 10 minutes. After a cooling off period, it is ready to heat for another 10 minutes.

Hi jmsocr2315,

If my description of what your heater is doing please read through to the end.

The heater is turned on and a room temperature is selected.
You can hear the noise of a small fan start, which shortly after the heater starts.
After a short period of time the heater stops and the red led begins to flash and shuts itself down.

This type of heater has a balanced flue, which means it draws air in one pipe and exhausts it out another.
Have the balanced flue checked for blockages, the problem will most likely be in the flue pipe which draws the outside cool air into the heater and not the flue pipe which blows out the hot air.
it may be full of cob webs or something else which restricts the air flow to the heater.
A service person can perform a quick test to prove the above theory. At the rear of the heater there are two pipes, one is an insulated metal pipe and the other is plastic pipe.
Disconnect the plastic pipe from the flue box and restart the heater.
If the heater runs normally this will confirm that there is a blockage.

I would start by checking the fluid to make sure it's at the proper level, Then check to see if the thermostat is opening like it should. If you have good flow and you get heat inside the car but the car still overheats I think I'd be checking for blown head gaskets and head warp.

Heater kicks out


Honeywell heaters like HZ3650 have a screen on the air inlet at the back side of the heater. This screen can be partially blocked off by an accumulation of lint, etc. The lint blocks some of the air flow which may cause heat increase within the heater to the point that the safety shutoff thermostat shuts off the power. Operation is returned after a cool down period only to repeat the shut down cycle after a short period of operation. If this is the cause of the problem the screen must be cleaned.
