Monitor 2400 Kerosene heater service

My monitor 2400 kerosene heater turns off by itself and gives me a E13 or E14 error code. I have a full tank of kerosene. I know this heater has not been serviced in years. How do I do basic trouble shooting and maintenance on this heater?

Drain the air out of the supply line at the bulk tank shutoff valve; there should be a small hex plug for doing this. On the bottom right hand side of the heater is a round hole that allows access to a finger pump for the fuel; press this three times slowly. Heater should start!

Check your filter in the fuel line outside if you have one. Also check the strainer in the fuel sump.

My daughters 2400 kerosene monitor will light, burn for about 2 to 3 minutes and then go out. The flame starts as a nice blue then goes to orange then looks red and goes out. Please help!

Susan, I suspect you have air in the lines, you will probably have to bleed line at pump. 2nd link explains how to.

E13 for a 2200 Monitor heater

E-13 - No ignition. Water in fuel line, no fuel in sump, blocked pumpand/or sump filter. the pump doesn't know water from kerosene it will pumpthis. Water doesn't burn so it will knock out the flame and lock out theheater. You can add a quart of denatured alcohol to 150 gallons of kerosene.the alcohol will emulsify the water enabling it to burn.
THERE'S A RED BUTTON THAT RESETS THE FLOAT. press this down. All it does isrelease the float. There's a sheet metal tab on the float and a magnet on thebottom of the button

My monitor 2200 heater is leaking fuel what could be the problem

That depends on where the leak is. If it is leaking out of the fuel sump the needle valve in the sump could be stuck or just leaking by so that the sump is over flowing. You could also make sure the fuel line fittings are tight where it connects to the pump and the burner chamber. If you are using an internal tank you should take the tank out and look down in the heater for kerosene. Check the fuel fittings in the back of the heater. Has the heater been working? If has gone through several attempts to start but hasn't lit kerosene could be built up in the burner and you should check the igniter. Also you would want to dry up any excess kerosene in of the burner. There are also some o-rings in the fuel pump itself but I wouldn't think they would be leaking. Basically there are not a lot of places it could be leaking just follow the fuel line from the back of the heater to the burner. You may need to wipe up the kerosene and then look for a drip. Hope this helps.

E13 keeps blinking on my monitor 2400 heater

causes of E13 error code:
Failure of ignitor, solenoid pump
or circuit board.
Incorrect wiring or flame rod
touches to burner parts.
Air pressure switch or overheat

I recommend taking it to a qualified service center.

Unfortunately, this can be a hard problem to trace with some experience and equipment.

Hope that helps!

We have a monitor 2400 kerosene heater, it will start up and after a few minutes at most it shuts down and starts beeping and many times has a message "error 13"

Next time you try to start the unit listen to the pump on the lower right side of the unit. Just before the E13 message if you hear a thumping noise, you have a fuel problem. If you don't hear a thumping and there is a flame you have a problem with the inside of the burner. I would say since it's a 2400 you have a fuel problem. Low fuel, no fuel, dirty filter or blocked flue pipe.

I have a Monitor 2400 oil heater. I would like a more detailed description of all the parts for this heater. Also I would like to find a listing of the possible error (e) codes that this heater may display...

I cleaned the fuel screen located on the unit and replaced the filter on the external fuel tank. The external filter can freeze if it accumulates enough water and the temp is cold enough, or it can just get full of debris. I also unplugged the 2400 for 30 min to let the factory preset settings come back. Filter(s) caused the e14 error, preset settings cured the e13 error caused by me fooling with the start stop function so much. Thanks for the help!
