Question about All-Pro Kerosene Garage Shop Heaters - All Pro PK115T Forced Air Kerosene Space Heater

BuddyPro kerosene TS175KT. 2 Problems. 1. Heater will run to disired set temp and shut off, then will go to E-5 overheat mode even when the temp is set at 70' unless the tank is near empty. 2. It will start okay and sometimes it will shut off briefly and then beep and come back on with new temp setting at 77' instead of my original setting of 70' I'm constantly having to hit the reset button. I'm on my second reset button.

    Is the heat sensor under the "barrel" in front of the igniter on the TS175KT?

Almost always the problems are the heater is too dirty. with it out in the floor where you can get to it. give ti a good cleaning before you open it up. Once cleaned the very top can be removed and you can see the motor and the combustion chamber. On the side of the combustion chamber thiers a hole with a light senser lined up with the hole ( so it can (see) the flame ). This senser needs to be clean and lined up witht he hole. Theirs filters in the back of the motor pump assembly. The manufacture sells a tuneup kit ( spark plug. pump vanes, several filters, pump cover ) you'd think you don't need all this stuff but you do. When you get the new parts on and the unit is good and clean turn the fan blade with youur fingr just to see it turn smoothly, If it doesn't your still cleaning aroud the pump vanes and the pump rotor ( this turns real fsat and it needs to turn smoothly with little or no resistance the directions that come with the tuneup kit tell you how and where to cleanit till it turns easy ( turning hard is what makes the overheat kick it off) with it clean and turning smoothly put it together carefully so it fitts together right. ( so it'll turn good ) now it'll work good till it gets dirty again.

Running very rich. how to adjust fuel and air screw


First of all are you running kerosene or diesel ? If you are using diesel, it does not burn as clean as kerosene which causes that burning rich smell. If you are going to use diesel, just use #1 diesel only but still may have a little rich smell. Don't use die red off road diesel. If you are using kerosene and want to check your air pressure on your pump, you will need a 10 lb. test gauge with a 1/8" NPT male pipe thread on the end of the gauge.There are 2 plugs on the back plate. Do not remove the upper plug with the hole in it. This is the adjustment screw for pressure. Clockwise increases pressure, counter clockwise decreases pressure. With the heater unplugged,remove the lower plug. Screw the test gauge in and start the heater. Check the pressure. Most are set between 5 1/2 and 6 lb. of pressure. Check your owners manual to see what your setting should be. If your pressure does not change, you have a worn pump and it would have to be repaired. Once you have the correct setting, unplug the heater, remove the gauge and install the plug back. If you feel that you are not qualified to perform this procedure, send it in to a local repair center.

Tip

Torpedo Heater Kerosene Heater Portable


There are many problems with portable kerosene torpedo heaters. To keep them running in top form you need to keep them adjusted properly and also give them periodic service.

This “tip” tells you how to troubleshoot your torpedo heater, It also can be useful for your to use to tune-up your heater.

This “tip” will walk you through how to set the pump pressure of your heater. This is one of the most important things to do to keep your heater running at top efficiency.

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3818397-torpedo_heater_pump_pressure_adjustment

The next thing that you want to remember is that for your heater to run the best and get the longest runtime before service is need you need to run it with the cleanest fuel possible. Although these heaters are certified to run on kerosene as well as #1 and #2 heating oil and diesel fuel, you will get much more soot and other impurities built up in your heater if you run the lower grade fuels. Kerosene is the cleanest fuel you can burn is these units.

Another plus to running kerosene in your torpedo heater is that it will not gell in extremely cold weather. Even if the fuel is not completely gelled, when it gets very cold heating oil and diesel will get thicker and cause the heater not to work as well. The fuel is pulled up through a hose by the air going through the pump. Any changes in the viscosity of the fuel will begin to affect the amount of fuel pulled through the hose.

Bottom line is this. You may pay a bit more for the kerosene initially, but it will pay you off in the long run by you not having the troubles that you will experience by burning cheaper fuels. Burning only kerosene will give you a long satisfying experience with you torpedo heater.

Can you use diesel instead of kerosene in ready heaters?


No - diesel fuel is NOT the same as kerosene. Kerosene is #1, regular diesel is #2. They are not interchangeable.

Pro 110, runs 10 min., blows white smoke ,shuts off


the first thing you need to do is go back to useing K1 kerosene, diesel fuel not only burns dirty but also has a tendency to gel up in cold weather which could be makeing it hard for the heater to draw the proper amount of fuel. To reset the pressure you will need a gage, it should run at about 6-7 psi. you can order a pressure gage from mr. heater online, they are by far the cheapest I have found as they are the actual manufacturer or call 1-800-251-0001

MY KEROSENE HEATER STARTS, RUNS MAYBE 5 MINUTES THEN SHUTS OFF


Same problem I had and it was the CAD/flmae sensor. you can get one that will fit from Mr. Heater for 3 bucks or from reddypats.com for 18. the wires are a different color but all you do is clip them and splice them to your old wire harness. It does''nt matter how you hook them as there is no hot and ground just a complete circuit.
