Try tilting the heater so the flame extinguisher snuffs it out. Please do this out side as it really does stink when it is shut off this way. After it cools please take it apart and check the wick you have a problem in your heater and something is bound up in the wick assembly. Take your time and do this outside as well because it is a messy job and kerosene stinks. Your wick should turn up and down with little to no resistance.

My 02 nissan pathfinder interior fan runs even when not turned on.checked all fuses they seem to be fine.

If fan still runs when all your heater control knobs and buttons are off, it is likely a bad heater fan switch. Unless you have something like a body control module found on newer cars that has some control over interior functions. If not, try a new heater fan switch. Good luck.

I have a Lochinvar pool heater that on the dispaly is showing Air Pressure Switch Open. I looked at the manual and it talks about air flow from the supply vent and exhaust vent. Than it says about...

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

Try this before taking anything apart to far:

The pressure switch is located in the front header, behind the

upper side jacket panel, above the water connections. When

required, the pressure switch can be reset with the following


1. Clean filter and skimmer.

2. Start filter pump.

3. Set digital thermostat to highest setting.

4. Turn the adjustment knob on the pressure switch clockwise

until the combustion air fan in the front control panel turns

off. Fan will not turn off if system pressure exceeds 5 PSI.

5. Slowly turn the adjustment knob counter-clockwise until the

combustion air fan turns on. Turn knob an additional ¼ turn


6. Turn filter pump off and on several times. The heater should

shut down immediately when the pump stops.

7. If the heater does not shut down immediately as the filter

pump stops, repeat steps 4, 5 and 6 until proper operation

is achieved.
8. Reset thermostat to desired temperature setting.

If after doing all of the above you still have the problem.... you can remove the switch and check for debris in the water passages. If you find debris remove it, reinstall the switch and repeat steps above.

- Still have the problem... Replace the switch.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

I can't turn off my heater. Knob wont turn?

If the knob is still jammed when you read this and the heater is still burning (Gosh, it must be hot), just firmly bump the heater on it's side (don't burn yourself, though) so that the tip over switch will disengage the wick and the heater will go out. The other good thing is that it will also unjam your knob.

Please be very careful doing this.

I have an older monterey wall heater that is gas that wont seem to light. I cant even get the gas to start from the pilot can you help me?

You could have a plugged pilot line. You will need to get to the gas valve and shut the gas supply off. Once you did that, unscrew the pilot line that supplies gas to the pilot assembly. You can then turn on the gas supply and rotate the pilot knob to the pilot setting. Depress the knob into the gas valve. You should be able to smell and hear the gas come out of the hole where you unscrewed the pilot line. Don't do this with a cigarette in your face. Once you verify you have gas, release the knob and shut off the gas supply. Take a can of air and blow thru the pilot tube, first from the pilot assembly in the heater then from the open end of the pipe. Replace the pilot tube making sure you don't cross thread the fitting. Tighten well. Again turn on the gas supply, spray or rub some soapy water on the fitting you tightened, depress the knob and hold it. The soap will bubble up if there is a leak. Fix it. Now light the pilot.

Blower wont turn off

If you turn the key off and it wont shut off the heater then there are some interesting things you need to check. The first would be the whole ignition switch. When you shut off the key, the power should stop to that accessory. If that is okay then you need to check the controls for the heater. The issue with no heat is one of a blend door being stuck and this could be the controls again.
