There are several reasons as to why this happens, and with that being said there are several things to correct this problem. I do this as preventative maintenance, remove the top section of the burner tube, this exposes the entire burner tray and internal parts. Locate the nozzle and remove it, they say you can not clean these, I say with a Q-tip, tooth pick and carb cleaner you can with out damaging it. Now behind the nozzle is a screen assembly these corrode at times so make sure to clean it as well.After cleaning up assemblies put the nozzle and filter screen back together.Next is the flame sensor, it is located below the nozzle assembly, round in shape and has a lens of sorts at the front. These collect carbon deposits, dirt, and the occasional homeless insect. It can be cleaned with a soft terry cloth rag and windex, now inspect the fuel lines for cracks, holes, or dry rot, replace if necessary. Locate the fuel pump next, on the back of it there is a foam air filter, this I clean with dawn dish soap rinse and dry really good, then put it back. Trace the fuel lines back to where they come thru the burner tube, now remove the side cover, you should see the fuel line and it goes to an in line filter. Remove the filter and I use a compressor and blow gun to clean it by blowing air backwards thru the filter, instantly clean. Inspect your lines again, replace if necessary. Replace side cover and open the fuel tank, lean the heater so the fuel runs towards the fuel filler opening. You are looking to see if water is in the tank, this happens from condensation when in storage. If there is I drain the fuel in to a clean five gallon bucket, now the fuel will float on top of the water and you should be able to see it.If there is water try to dry out the tank with a rag and remove as much water as you can. You can siphon off the fuel from the water and reuse it if you like just be careful not to siphon to far and get the water. Fill your heater with fuel, put cover back on the heater and plug it in, it should now fire up like new. Good luck

Greenworks 1700 psi starts ok, but cuts off after about 5-10 minutes. After waiting a few minutes, it will run again.


Check and see if it losses ignition spark when it stalls, if it does the ignition pickup may be defective.

I heave the same problem on my Corsa B 1.0 2000, engine cuts out, and whe it happens, I hear one of the relay under the right side of the dash buzzing. After a couple of minutes, starts like nothing happend.
So far I manage to find that the speed sensor is faulty, when I tap him the car stops. I order a brand new one, but I'm not sure that was the issue.
I order also a Opel Tech2 tester from ebay and it has to arrive next week, then I can see the error code.

My 2000 blazer (trailblazer package) has been cutting off recently. It seems like after driving it for about 30 minutes, it will cut off with no warning. It will start back if you let it sit for a few...


You would need to figure out if it is fuel or ignition related to proceed.
Someone would check for fuel pressure and spark when it stops running.
Could be the fuel pump relay, the ignition module, a crank sensor, or other things.

My van cuts off while driving


Your ignition coil may be on it's way out. When they get older they begin to expand excessively with heat and cut out. After it sits for a few minutes it cools down and works again.
