Thought I'd add the comments in as a solution also- There should be a tank that you can pull out from the top after lifting the lid, make sure it's filled with kerosene, K-1 recommended. The orange window lets you know the fill level when it's upside down, and when the fuel level's getting low when it's right side up. After filling, let it sit for a while to allow the wick to saturate. Assuming your ignitor is no longer operational (that's what the two D cell batteries are for), you can light it with a match. Turn the knob on the left all the way clockwise, so the dot is at the ignite position. This should bring the wick fully up. Press down on the right side lever (labeled ignite). This tilts the glass combustion chamber so it exposes the wick. Light the exposed wick with your lighter or match. When it starts burning, release the lever and allow the burner to sit back down. Adjust the flame by turning the knob back, adjust the glass cylinder using the spring handle so the flame is even, and there's an even orange glow on the whole cylinder. There should not be any yellow flame at the top of the cylinder; if there is, turn the wick back down some more (you may need to hold the knob and press the shutoff lever to be able to turn it back more) Don't press the lever without holding the knob though, unless you're ready to shut down the unit, as it'll retract the wick all the way if you do. If the top part of the sleeve isn't orange, but dark, turn the wick up some more until it's an even orange throughout the cylinder. Replacement wicks are available online for about $8 to $10, if yours is no longer in good shape. If your ignitor IS operational, and you have a good set of D cells in the unit, the way that's used is to simply depress the ignition lever after following the same mentioned shown earlier; when you press it all the way, the ignitor will start to glow, then press the lever at bit further, just enough so the glowing ignitor touches the wick, which should ignite it. Then release the lever and adjust as before.

    I see a place for some flashlight batteries in the back. Do the batteries have anything to do with the operation of the heater other than activating the glow plug. I don't really see any fuel or vacuum lines? Should I hear a hiss or something that indicates the heater is getting fuel?

    There is no fuel or vacuum lines on this unit.
    There should be a tank that you can pull out from the top after lifting the lid, make sure it's filled with kerosene, K-1 recommended.
    The orange window lets you know the fill level when it's upside down, and when the fuel level's getting low when it's right side up.
    After filling, let it sit for a while to allow the wick to saturate.

    Assuming your ignitor is no longer operational (that's what the two D cell batteries are for), you can light it with a match.
    Turn the knob on the left all the way clockwise, so the dot is at the ignite position. This should bring the wick fully up.
    Press down on the right side lever (labeled ignite). This tilts the glass combustion chamber so it exposes the wick. Light the exposed wick with your lighter or match.
    When it starts burning, release the lever and allow the burner to sit back down.
    Adjust the flame by turning the knob back, adjust the glass cylinder using the spring handle so the flame is even, and there's an even orange glow on the whole cylinder.

    By the way, if your ignitor IS operational, and you have a good set of D cells in the unit, the way that would be used is to simply depress the ignition lever after following the same mentioned shown earlier; when you press it all the way, the ignitor will glow, and press the lever just enough so the glowing ignitor touches the wick, which should ignite it.

Hi i have a master space heater model 150 paraffin, runs ok with the cover off but when i put the cover back on it stops. The flame out button clicks to shut the heater down. any info please


These units have a air pump on the back of the fan motor. Has anyone messed with the settings? The pump usually runs off of 5 to 6 lbs. of pump pressure. This is what controls the fuel flow that is sprayed out of the fuel injector. This unit also should have a photo eye for flame out control. It is positioned near the ignitor looking though a hole in the combustion chamber. Make sure it is clean and looking in the hole. Make sure your ignitor is working also.

Space runs 15 seconds then stop


check in front of the flame there should be a flame proving rod which may be dirty, use steel wool to clean it so it can sense the flame, could also be a "fire eye" like a light sensor for a outdoor night light, clean the lense

Master 110 torpedo heater will not start , kerosene type


Odds are, your air pump is locked up. Remove the cover on the back of the fan motor, remove the pump cover and carefully remove the air pump rotor and blades. If the motor spins freely and will start when plugged in, the pump housing plates probably have a bit of corrosion on them. Lightly clean the pump housing end plates with fine grit sandpaper, wipe clean and re-assemble. Should fix the problem. Does the breaker trip when this happens?

most parts for kero heaters are interchangable. go to desatech dot com for parts. check for a reset button for your heater. if no reset, does the fan run? your unit can use one of two ignition parts. a spark generator with a spark plug or a hot surface igniter. the unit uses a cad cell flame detector. you might need to replace this.
