The above fix is NOT for a Life Smart LC-500-1PC.. this is Life Smart LC-500-1PC. http://lifesmartproducts.com/current-products/infrared-heaters/52-2011-products/332-ls-500-1pc.html

Sounds like the thermostat is out. Order one, and hope it comes with a repair manual!

    Check the fan to see if it is moving, i have seen a few where the fan gets gummed up and the heater shuts down due to overheating

SOURCE: heater shuts down prematurly

If the heater runs fine for the 15 or so minutes without smoke/odor- do this

  1. check for water droplets on bottom of tank
  2. check for restricted fuel filter
  3. test photocell
  4. test safety control (reset)
You don't state whether this is a spark plug heater *or* Hot Surface Ignitor type. I made the assumption you were inquirung about a Spark Plug Heater. Disregard the list if the heater is an HSI type---- troubleshooting is different.

You may have contaminted fuel, a dirty nozzel, or you may need to replace the filters. Defective spark plug can also cause this. You can go the manufacturers webite a www.desatech.com . They offer service manuals that should be able to assist you. Thank you

Hi.

Replace the flame sensor, if that does not fix the problem, check the thermostats, if it cuts off in ten minutes and then restarts when cooling down, then it is either flame sensor or thermostats.
