Question about Scheu (K50-FA) Heater
The heater has sat for approx. 2 years. when last used it worked fine. when i plug it in the spark plug fires and sometimes it will ignite for a few seconds an then shut down. the spark plug also quits fireing. if i stick a small propane torch by the nozzle it will run longer. is it poosible that the fuel is to old and causing this problem.
Bucklehead...I assume you discarded the 2 year old fuel... if not do so. Your fuel delivery problem could be caused by a number of things. 1. Incorrect air pump pressure, 2. worn or restricted nozzle, 3. deteriorated fuel line or air line, which in turn is creating the ignition problem, 4. the spark plug is bad OR you may not have a fuel delivery problem at all - just a photocell that has gone bad or has a wasp nest built betweem the eye and the flame (check this first). If the photocell can't see the flame it will shut the heater down. That's it's only job.
