First thing is to download the service manual.

http://www.desaparts.com/service_manuals.html

You need to make sure the filters are clean and that you are getting the proper air pump pressure.

If the units starts up and runs good and slowly goes out it will normally be due to a lack of fuel getting to the nozzle. When there is not enough fuel being delivered to the nozzle from either a clogged fuel filter of dirty air pump output filter the unit will slowly shut down from lack of fuel.

If the unit shuts down while it is running properly and the nose come is orange then you probably have a problem with a photocell or the flame out control.

If you have other questions you can contact our service department at 269-685-4125 at extension 224

My all pro 150000 btu heater sputters, shoots flames and smoke. what causes that?


The first thing to check would be the fuel filter from the tank to the nozzle.

Then check the input and output filters on the back of the pump housing.

Here is a link to a service manual.

I have a master 150000 btu kerosene direct fire heater that runs for 5 minutes then shuts down and blows white smoke. what is the problem?


The white smoke is the kerosene fuel hitting the hot combustion chamber. Your flame has went out. The cause for this could be many. The first thing you need to do is check your fuel. Remove your fuel cap and look at the bottom of the tank for trash or water. Use a good flash light. It will all settle to the bottom. If so, drain and clean out your tank. Add fresh kerosene. Check your fuel filter. Replace if dirty. Test again. If problem continues, It is possible that your photo eye could be deffective or just dirty. It is located next to the ignitor or spark plug. It sees the flame. If the flame goes out, the unit shuts down. The flame has to be smooth (not sputtering). Water in the fuel will make it sputter and the unit will shut down. When the water/moisture in tank settles to the bottom, your suction fuel line is just off the bottom which results in it picking up the water instead of good fuel. Always disgard the old fuel from previous year and start with fresh fuel. This will cut down alot of your problems in the future.

Sears forced air kero heater wont start, spitting fuel out front


sounds like the ignitor is bad, mine would try to light and do the same thing. I noticed one night that it was arcing out the entire length of the wires to the plug. If you have a good spark then i would suggest a CAD flame sensor, very cheap.

Won't ignite and fill the entire tube with flame, cold air, smoke


The deisel fuel hogged it up. Clean everything out and replace the wick. Deisel fuel is filthy to burn and it needs a lot of airflow.
