I have a mh 190-t Kfa it starts and runs fine does not shut down or anything like that it just stinks really bad and makes your eyes burn it never used to do this . Any ideas how to fix


The first question is are you using the correct fuel for it? Those heaters are designed to burn a specific type of kerosene, (1-K). The wrong or old kerosene can give off a rotten egg smell especially if the heater has been stood unused for a while. Diesel will give you a smokey, sooty burn and anything else is just dangerous.
Try emptying the tank and putting in new and fresh kerosene. When you do this it will stink for a few minutes but that should clear as it is the little bit of fuel between the tank and the burner.

Spark plug fired,( Sears -30,000 BTU) starts and runs for approx. 30 seconds, then cuts off. The reset button does not reset for restart for about another 20 - 30 seconds. Then the unit will restart...


check and see if the heater has a high temperature limit switch. if it does it will shut the machine off until it cools down.. just replace it with a new one.

When filled with kerosene then plugged in, the heater will kick on for about 3 seconds and the fan will run but it will not ignite, then it shuts off. reddy heater 55, 55000btu. runs on K1 or fuel oil.

This sounds like you will need to replace the thermostat!
That should fix this common problem!
