The answer may not be that simple. It will be a process of ruling things out. First check fuel level, then check fuel filter, check to see if the photo sensor is dirty, then check the intake and exhaust filters. If these check out then you need to check pump pressure. Since I am not as familiar with this brand as I am with Dayton you will need to consult your operators manual or the manufacturer for pump pressure specs. If the pressure isn't high enough you will to adjust it to the currect pressure. You should find the problem prior to this point.

You said the fan blows but does it light? Diesel may have gummed up the nozzle or pump or fuel line.

Clean your nozzel, check your fuel & air lines, you may need to replace Spark plug and filters. You can go to the manufacturers website at and they offer service manuals. I hope this helps you!

Heater will only work with top on. will not fire up with top on. when running with top off, will shut off when top is replaced

The fuel maybe contaminated,or you need some anti-gel additive to add to the fuel.Check the intake filter in the back,near the pump plate.

I had the same problem. I took the nozzle head off and blew through it with air. I also blew through the air line, this is the one that goes to motor. It has worked fine ever since.
