You said the fan blows but does it light? Diesel may have gummed up the nozzle or pump or fuel line.

My kerosene heater keeps cutting out every 11 secs when motor is connected through pcb will run ok if motor is powered dirrctly


As you know you have bypassed the safety system and the "clean air" system.
Your problem could be:
  1. a defective board
  2. a defective photocell
  3. a defective nozzle
  4. an air leak or vacuum leak
  5. water in the fuel
  6. or as simple as the air pump pressure not being within 1/4psi within factory specs- which would cause the flame to be off-color- the the board & photocell would shut the heater down because of "dirty air".

I need to change password


Switch off the power to the PC. If you have forgotten the password for CMOS setup, locate the CMOS reset/clear jumper terminals on the motherboard. Put a jumper across the terminals for about 10 secs. Remove the jumper. Switch on the PC. Press Control+Alt+Delete to go to CMOS setup & put a new password in the setup.

My reddy heater 70,000 btu. kerosene & diesel fuel run for 5 seconds then stop & fupped a smoke i put new diesel fuel still the same kindly help me to solve the problem and highly appriciate it.


Assuming the "electronic safety shutdown system" is operating properly, the system is shutting the heater down becausr the control board/photocell don't like what is being seen inside the combustion chamber. That is what they are supposed to do if there is water, trash, an air leak, a vacuum leak, a broken ignitor, a worn nozzle, etc.

Your job, as the troubleshooter, is to find out why the flame is not correct. Read the tips below:

Pro 110, runs 10 min., blows white smoke ,shuts off


the first thing you need to do is go back to useing K1 kerosene, diesel fuel not only burns dirty but also has a tendency to gel up in cold weather which could be makeing it hard for the heater to draw the proper amount of fuel. To reset the pressure you will need a gage, it should run at about 6-7 psi. you can order a pressure gage from mr. heater online, they are by far the cheapest I have found as they are the actual manufacturer or call 1-800-251-0001

Unit will start, run about 5 seconds and


You did not state the model numbers of the heaters, so a good guess is all that I can do. Manuals might be available, but models are a must.

By your description the heaters are Hot Surface Ignitor types, opposed to the older technology spark plug heater. Right or wrong? Technology is different & troubleshooting is different.

The heaters are shutting down because the photocell is not seeing the flame, or the flame color is not absolutely correct. The photocell tells the computer to shut the heater down for safety reasons. It's going to be your job to troubleshoot and find out what's wrong.

Igniter lites up fan kicks on and within 5 sec shuts off


Dustin, The ignitor only glows for 5 seconds, just long enough to ignite the fuel. The heater is shutting down because the photocell does not see the correct flame color.
Since you say "comes on for 5 seconds", I can only assume that there is a flame. You do not specify a lack of flame. I am also assuming that you have had the heater running this heater season and the problem just started.

YOU must find out if the problem is fuel delivery related or electronics related. Start by checking the pump pressure.
