Pretty much every kerosene heater I've seen has the filters in the same place. You have to take the cover off, then locate the pump at the back of the motor. Take 2 or 4 screws out of the pump to remove the pump cover, and you'll see the filters in there.

There are some kind of generic directions here:

I'm sure they apply to your heater too.

Be careful putting it back together, it's reeeeally easy to crack the plastic pump by overtightening the screws, and it will never work right again if you do.

My Master forced air kerosene heater fan motor hums but wont turn over, I tried replacing the capacitor with no luck. Do you know what the problem may be

Be sure you replaced the capacitor with an identical one. If it is and you have the right voltage to the motor then the start windings in the motor are bad and the motor will have to be replaced. But like I said, make sure the voltage and micro-farad ratings of the replacement capacitor are the same as the original.

I have a master 165,000 air forced heater it burns kerosene/diesel an it says multi has been a very good clean burning heater,an now when it cuts[ off ] it blows out white smoke ,an now it does...

it should take care of the problem for you.... but if it does not... then you need to tear your pump apart and clean the reeds in the little black wheel inside your pump.... the 4 reeds should freely slide up and down in that little black wheel they are in... if they are not moving very well, if not at all then your not pumping any air to pick up your fuel

Were is the fuel filter? on my 150,000 fuel buner heater

I believe the fuel filter is located on the fuel pick up line inside the fuel tank. They can be a bit tough to get ahold of but what I have done is to make a hook out of stiff wire or a cut up clothes hanger and bend a small hook on the end. Most filters can be removed and cleaned. However it's better if you replace them once a year. I hope this helps you. Thanks

Have a master 165,000 btu turbo heater it always starts and runs but sometimes it will run for 5 minutes 7 or 10 no matter where i set the built in thermostat,any tips ????

I would start by checking the fuel filter form the tank to the nozzle. If this is getting dirty the heater will slowly start loosing the red glow on the nose cone until the until shuts down.
Normally if it sets for a few minutes it will start and run again.

You can order a filter replacement kit that has all of your filters included.

How do i get an owners manual for a Handy Master kerosene heater (HM19)?

I get about 90% of my manuals from the manufacturers web site. Give that a try. You may have to do a bit of research, I do not recognize the Handy Master brand, it may be a relabel from another manufacturer.
Good Luck

Master 115,000 will not stay running

It sounds as if your are having a fuel delivery issue. Always start troubleshooting fuel delivery problems with a pump pressure test. Air pump pressure is extremely critical on these computerized heaters. Instructions are at www.reddyparts,.com
