Turn on .runs 6 or
Calm down and lets do routine maintenance this is what I do each and every year. Remove the top half of the burner tube, this exposes the burner tray. Locate the flame sensor these collect carbon,dirt,and the occasional insect nest. Now clean the flame sensor with windex and a soft terry cloth rag, make sure it has a clear unobstructed view of the flame. Next is the fuel nozzle, locate it and remove it,they say that you can not clean these, I say carb cleaner, q-tips and tooth pick work fine, clean the nozzle.Behind the nozzle there should be a screen these corrode while in storage some times clean it and now reinstall the nozzle assembly. Inspect the fuel lines for cracks, dry rot or holes, do this back to the fuel pump. Replace the top half of the tube and remove the side cover on the side where the fuel line drops thru, in doing this you should now be able to see the fuel filter. Remove the filter and using a compressor and an air gun blow air backwards thru the filter, now it is clean put it back in line, finish inspecting fuel line to the tank making sure it is submerged in the fuel. Put the side cover back on. Last is the air filter on the rear intake, it is usually a foam filter, wash it out dry it real good put it back in. Now you plug in your heater and it should now run like new. Good Luck and take your time this is not that hard.
