Jerrysue1967,

The most likely problem would be either the pressure reducing valve on your tank is bad (I have seen this many times as they are built very cheap these days) or the gas valve in the reddy heater is bad. I would replace the pressure valve first as I believe it is the problem. They only cost about $10 US.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the excellent rating. Great ratings help to keep experts helping everyone solve their problems.

I have a 175000 btu torpedo heater and the carbon air disc is fine, its getting air to the two nozzles instead of pulling fuel out of the tank its blowing air out of the nozzle. Does the nozzle holder...


Anything that sucks air has to blow it out somewhere (even a vacuum cleaner). Sounds like there's a leak or blockage between the nozzle and the fuel tank. Check the pump strainer.

.my kerosene 125000 comes on but the fan does not


The motor drives the fan on one end and the air pump on the other end. From your description it sounds as if the air pump is not producing air, or enough air, or you are losing the air before it reaches the nozzle, which is the point where the vacuum for fuel delivery is created.

You must start by taking/setting the pump pressure, the fix the defect.

Have dyna glo forced air kerosene heater, 65000 btu. It's about 10 years old. Not getting fuel to nozzle. Cleaned fuel filter; replaced hoses; cleaned nozzle. air pressure gauge shows pressure OK.


Are the hoses on the fuel nozzle right. Air hose to the front and fuel to the rear. Did you remove the nozzle from the adaptor to check the o-ring? Let me know what you find.

I have ready heater 150, 000 btu, the fan is blowing strong and there is constant fire comeing from sparkplug , but its not igniting. What could be wrong.


No fuel!! Several things can cause this, empty fuel tank, dirty fuel filter, plugged screen in the nozzle assembly,or plugged nozzle. So lets clean up the fuel system by first removing the top section of the heater and exposing the burner tray. Remove the tray and locate the fuel nozzle, remove the nozzle, now they say you can not clean them, I say with a q-tip, tooth pick and carb cleaner you can just be careful not to damage the nozzle. Behind the nozzle is a screen assembly these corrode at times so clean it up too. Below the nozzle assembly is the flame sensor, clean this with windex and a soft terry cloth rag, make sure it will have a clear unobstructed view of the flame.Put the nozzle assembly back together, and now inspect the fuel line for cracks, holes,and dry rot replace if necessary. Trace the lines down to the side where they come thru the case. Remove the side cover and locate the fuel line and in line filter, remove the filter. Cleaning this is easy you need a compressor and blow gun, all you do is blow air backwards thru the filter and instantly its clean. Inspect fuel lines and reassemble. Now make sure that you have clean fuel in your tank, and there is no water in it as well.Plug it in and you should now be heating like new. If not it could be your fuel pump!

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

NO FUEL AT NOZZLE


FOUND THAT THE FUEL HOSE AND AIR PUMP HOSE HAD BEEN REVERSED AT THE NOZZLE-PUMP HOSE NEEDS TO BE CLOSEST TO THE BLOWER HOUSING-I USED A VAC GAUGE TO TEST THE FUEL LINE-WHILE THE AIR PUMP WAS RUNNING-NO VAC-REVERSED LINES AND STARTED UNIT-ADJUSTED AIR PRESSURE-ALL IS WELL

30,000 btu kerosene ready heater


check pressure of the air compressor should be in the 3.0 to 3.5 range. not enough won't suck fuel, too much will blow out the flame. igniter either lights or it doesn't no in between. does the main flame come on?
