Kyd-25 compressor does not turn on.
with a meter you could test the amp draw on the compressor but it sounds as if you are drawing l.r.a.. This is locked rotor amps, a rating you could likely find on the data plate of the machine but ultimately means the compressor is bad.

I have a Remington 100 Heater. Was running fine
Similar heaters that use diesel have to routinely cope with the dye added to untaxed fuel, ditto similar heaters that use both fuels. Unless there was an excess of dye in the fuel you used the problem was probably a coincidence.
Dirt can be a big problem due to corrosion forming in the fuel tank caused by a relatively large percentage of moisture naturally in the fuel and the formation of condensation. Fuel is generally filtered through a fine gauze when the tank is filled but there is little or no filtration preventing dirt already in the tank from being picked up and finding a way into the spray head which generally jams the spinner affecting the quality of the fuel spray.
Cleaning the spinner and nozzle might work for a while but only a major clean out will restore reliability until the next time. It is also wise to check and adjust the pressure of the air pump.
