Our heater will ignite and run for a few minutes then it will shut down and not refire without powerig the unit off. also there is a heavy smell of kerosene. we are using dyed kero. we have tried bypassing...


Thanks for providing the model of your heater. Most folks don't.

Your heater has a photocell eye and a computer board (ignition control). This team monitors the flame. If the team does not like the color of the flame then they shut the heater down and that is the situation you are in. Now, you must troubleshoot & find the problem. Is it water in the fuel, incorrect air pump pressure, worn nozzle, cracked plastic cover, etc.

Read these troubleshooting tips.

Kerosene Portable Forced Air heater comes on, runs awhile


Here is a link to your owner's manual... http://12.153.20.74/manuals/123919-01A.PDF. Look on page 8 and 10. It could be several things. It could only be a dirty fuel filter or the pump pressure may just need adjustment. If you need a part you can contact Master Parts at 800-466-1446 or you can find them on-line at www.masterparts.net. I hope this helps!

The unit should have a fuel & air filter. Check that both are clear. Inside the burner tube, there will be a photo-cell, if the lense is dirty it will shut the flame off. The photo-cell needs to see the flame. You can carefully and gently, clean the lens with a tissue, soft cloth, or Q-tip. Please let me know how its coming along.
