Time for a full servce overhaul - kit at your lawnmower supply house.

probably both and unburnt fuel also. when the unit ran out it still pumped a small quantity of fuel into the hot burner chamber where it turned to smoke and was expelled. carbon monoxide itself is odorless and what is normally referred to as c. o. odor are unburnt fuel products, some of which smell pretty strange.

Remove the top cover. There is an ignitor that glows at start up. Look to see if yours is functioning. They break easily and yours could be bad.

Cuts on and goes right back off

You don't say, but I am assuming that the motor is running and there is combustion in the combustion chamber and the heater is running fine, then the reset trips. Is this correct? If so, chances are the Safety Control (reset) is defective. Part number HA3003. The photocell could also be at fault. Check for a dirty lense on the photocell.

But---If there is no combustion in the chamber, then the photocell detects a no-flame condition and then it trips the reset.

Try those 2 sites. Apparently it is a problem getting info on them from Toro, who bought Lawnboy, but chances are good that the machine was made by Desa for LB. If you need parts, you may try a place like Farm and Fleet if you are in the midwest, or a similar farm/home store.

The ignitor wire must be grounding against the cover. Check wire for breaks or bare spots.

all heaters have safety swithches and should not be bypassed. it sounds like the fan is not putting enough air over the heat exchanger on this heater and a high limit switch is shutting it down. I would go to there website and with the model and serial number and get an exact replacement motor for it. This should be much cheaper than replacint the heater.

either the pump has a broken vane, or motor bearing is frozen up. check for free rotation with power cord unplugged.

on the ack of the motor/pump assembly there is a small plug with a hole in it. inside this plug are a spring and a small ball. turning this plug in or out offers some pressure adjustment.
