Sounds like a short circuit/ Or a weak breaker. If there were a fuse in the heater it would not trip the breaker because the circuit would be open with a blown fuse. To check the unit from the plug use an ohm meter and test from each terminal on the plug to the half rounded ground. You should have no reading at this point. If you do there is a short in the unit.

2001 Ford 350 7.3 diesel. Turns over but will not start. Wait to start light will not come on. Checked fuses under hood. Had the 20A pcm fuse was blown. Replaced fuse and tried again. Wait to start light...

Inside of the fuel filter housing is a heating element, a fuel warmer. It is common for this element to break the spot welds of it's mounting plate and ground out against the housing, hence it blowing the fuse every time you try and warm up the glow-plugs. Take the top off of the fuel filter housing and remove the filter, then look into the bottom of the housing and see if the heater is touching the walls of the housing. If this is the problem you should be able to unplug the fuel heater and have the engine start until you get the heater replaced.

Circuit braker keep popping

Sounds like the heating element has gone out again. Once you reset the circuit breaker and the tub turns on it will start to circulate the water. This usually runs like this for about 2 mins and then the tub will recognize it is cold and send power to the heater. If the element is back at that point it will blow the circuit breaker.
If this circuit breaker pops as soon as you turn it on then you most likely have a bad circuit board.

Pelonis heater smells like burning something

Three possibilities come to mind: First, there may be some foreign objects stuck between the sections of the coils where they connect or in their individual holes, the next is that the cord or outlet in your house is getting too hot (the circuit is being overloaded, perhaps; and finally, the clincher, you have a tiny oil leak in the coils themselves.

My black and decker oil radiator has gone dead all of a sudden

Have you check the electric receptacle it's plugged into, to see if it's still functioning. Do this either with test leads or by plugging in another electric appliance. If it's not working check your homes circuit breaker panel for a tripped breaker. If you find that's the case, make sure nothing is plugged into the receptacle and reset the tripped breaker. Plug your heater back into that receptacle and see if it trips the breaker. If it does, something in your heater is either overheating or there is an electrical short. In either case, buy a new heater.

Stove shuts down and code ee 2 or ee6 comes up , what is my promblem.

Probably a fuel flow problem. Does the pump start making a loud thumping sound before the heater cuts off. Check the fuel filter and the strainer in the fue sump. Turn off the fuel at the barrel before removing the fuel strainer. Also check the flame sensor. Unplug the heater before attempting to remove the flame rod because it may burn out the circuit board if it touches metal with the heater plugged in. Use some steelwool or fine sandpaper to clean it if it is dirty. Another possibility with the EE-6 is that it is overheating, however, since you are getting EE-2 also I would suspect that fuel is the problem. Another thing to check would be the fuel nozzle. It can sometimes get clogged with carbon deposits. Let me know what you find if this doesn't fix it.

I have a farenheat fuh 54 b the fan turns slow until I tilt it towards the floor and then it spins fine. Checked for loose or broken wires and found none.

I would clean fan blades and motor housing. Blow out motor with compressed air if possible and check for oil ports on both ends of motor housing. If your motor has oil ports they may have plastic or aluminum plugs in them. If so remove themand put 3-4 drops of fine grade oil in. I hope this helps. Thanks

Behind my passenger side wheel, everytime i back up i here a knocking noise and everytime i make a right turn i here the same noise and it seems like it's getting worse each day.

That noise would be a constant velocity joint gone bad. (Inner or outer) This is the drive axle. It will soon break apart and leave you stranded.
Needs to be replaced as soon as possible.
