Question about All-Pro Forced Air Kerosene Space Heater SPC-K75

1 Answer

60,000 btu All Pro At start up,it "tries" but shuts down with smoke

I have checked the ignitor, it's working. Cleaned the filter. Removed the spray nozzel and lines, checked for any obstruction and found none. The heater is one year old and just developed this problem. It isn't even used on a construction site, just in my garage. I replaced all the fuel, no help. It sounds like the motor is running alot slower than it did when it was working. The motor fan spins easly and it not binding. Any suggestions other than buying a new heater?

    I have the same problem. I just went out and spent 50$ on a new igniter and the problem is still there. When i plug it in, the igniter turns red in then the fuel sprays with no affect and then it just shuts off. I was wondering if it had something to do with the fuel or air adjustments on back. Andrew

    Does this unit have a solid state relay hooked to the motor? I can't tell without a model #.

Check to see if the flame indicator (photocell) is dirty. Sometimes soot or dust will cover the lens and need tobe wiped off.
Also when these have been sitting for awhile mice or other rodents can build nests inside the housing which can cause problems as well as afire hazzard.

I have a 70,000 btu reddy heaterthat after 2 mins shuts off it has a good eye new electrode ....but the motor seems warm to touch

the fuel pump may be plugged up and that will overload the motor..also if the flame on does not occur the unit will shut down for safety..need to check the fuel nozzle and see if it sprays while trying to start.. if not it needs cleaned/replaced.. can be cleaned with carb spray and wiped off .. remove and look at the filter in the back of it.. may be blockked up..

I hava an All Pro 65,000 BTU heater. It was working fine a week ago. The igniter glows, fuel mists but doesn't light off then shuts down. Ideas?

I am sure you have confirmed that the fuel is fresh and good, no water in it, etc.--
It is kerosene, not #2 Diesel fuel, right?

And the shutting down is good, if the flame does NOT ignite--- :-)
So we have to figure out why the fuel is not getting hot enough to ignite?

Question-- is the oil spray passing close enough to the ignitor?
And this unit does NOT use SPARK to ignite?, correct? --
for most of these heaters have spark ignition.. I am learning all the time, too!

How about checking the fuel pressure. and the air -- is it correct?
Check with your manual how to check and adjust.

After testing these tings, let us know what you learned

I have a 60,000 btu kerosene heater its getting fuel and the glow plug turns on but still wont fire up n shuts down. what would cause this?

Well it is getting fuel but is it atomized in very small droplet form? If so is your igniter close enough to ignite the fuel? You see these spray a very fine conical mist under high pressure, if the mist is not defined or conical it sprays past the igniter. If it is fine and cone shaped it could be the positioning of your igniter. Please check both by removing the top section of the heater and watch what is going on in there. My thoughts are a bad nozzle and if you replace it pay attention to spray angle and GPH rating printed on the side of the nozzle.

What you are describing sounds more like a lazy fuel pump. When starting it, there is excessive fuel in the chamber to start with. Once this burns off, the pump can't maintain the same level of combustion.Another cause might be with a plugged up injector nozzle.

Heater wont start.Fan goes, Starts to heat, then blows a couple clouds of smoke and dies. Ive cleaned filter, new fuel. Cant figure out what adjustment I should be doing. Glow Plug? What else?

take the shield off and see if it burns with more combustion air. If it does then the heater isnt getting enough air. look for a shutter or set screw near the burner that should be the primary air adjustment. sounds like you have been working on the fuel side already. You may check the orfice to see if it is partially blocked, use a safety pin and gently **** it out. also check the burner tube

70,000 BTU Ready Heater

If...the air pump pressure is right, the ignitor glows, the fuel is hitting the ignitor, then the unit will have combustion......unless.....
  1. there is an air leak on the pressure line
  2. there is a vacuum leak on the fuel line
  3. there is a leak at the nozzle adapter
  4. there is a restriction either in the nozzle or the fuel filter
  5. the nozzle is worn and is spraying fuel rather than fogging fuel

Sears forced air kero heater wont start, spitting fuel out front

sounds like the ignitor is bad, mine would try to light and do the same thing. I noticed one night that it was arcing out the entire length of the wires to the plug. If you have a good spark then i would suggest a CAD flame sensor, very cheap.
