Did this video help you?

michael obrien: You don't check vacuum but out pressure psi.

tony gennusa: Mine is blowing white smoke anyone experience this

Reckless Fpv Vlogs: Hey I'm having an issue with my heater it worked great then one day I went to plug it in and the fan doesn't move it buzzes when I plug it in but I also see like a little blue flame. Did my motor go out?? Any help thanks!

Ashroyer86: Is one of these worth 30 bucks with a no fuel issue?

Tom bickers: Hi I just bought one of these and live in Southern California. What is the best fuel to use? I don’t want to pay for 100% kerosene due to price and I’m not sure the deisel here is winter grade. Someone else said that I could mix 3 parts deisel and one part has. Not sure what to use.

Vincent Squitieri: Great video, Sir. Thank you very much! Next time could you possibly go / talk a little slower, just trying to make sure I didn't miss anything. Great information! Thanks again!

Shaun Tucker: Ok another question for you. I have one of these and it lights spurratically. sometime without and issue. sometimes it just doesn't want to get going. I have a new coil and tested pressure. seems like If I will blow back into the front when trying to start it will go ahead and light the kerosene. any advice?

Davie Jones: Yea we gots one of these coffee can heaters. The damn thing don't want to lite since we switched from kerosene to auto diesel for some reason. I guess the viscosity changed the spray pattern and it is now missing the spark plug and there is no way to adjust the depth of the spark plug. I guess we are going to have to change the plug with one that has longer leads on it. Other than that auto diesel is way cheaper than kerosene and the unit works great all except for the starting which can be fixed. Great video. Oh and there's always some out here with a one inch pickle that will give you a thumbs down. They just can't seem to be able to get laid because the chicken runs too fast for them.

Brandon G: Great video sir, thank you!

Toro Rodriguez Rodriguez: Hi sixty , I have a little work to do and I’m about to rent a heater like this one from Home Depot, heater kerosene 125,000BTU , i have this jobsite that’s is 600 sqf cover with insulation tarps , you think it’ll be good to warm it up ? Thank you

Jaime Nunez: Not bad you got $15 plus part👍👍👍

David Conklen: ? i have one that has fresh kerosene and spark and sprays good but wont ignite any Ideas? You can message me at thanks

Kd Grayson: I can see this thing heating a sealed heat exchanger that derives combustion air from outdoors so to not create negative pressure and cold air infiltration by the combustion gas being exhausted outdoors safely, the heat exchangers exterior will be red hot like all furnaces operate and the air being sent across it is both the return air source and supply air source, that being the indoor air. With a furnace even a crack will 86 the eq2uipment cause as you mention the venturi effect plus combustion air is supplied by the induced draft motor/fan.

My point being to avoid the carbon monoxide exposure to the human beings being warmed in the conditioned space, to operate this safely I would keep my garage door open, no way I would be in a garage or house with one rejecting exhaust indoors! Thats insane! if you dont die it can cause headaches, fatiq2ue , heart failure, cardiac exaserbation , asthma, etc. hundreds die every year from furnaces not venting outdoors! correctly!

Leo Martin: Has anyone engineered a delayed shut-off for these kerosene heaters to eliminate the strong unburnt fuel aroma that always pollutes the heated space when the heater and all its electrical and mechanical components in the fuel system are shut off abruptly as designed? It would seem helpful to the reduction or elimination of this issue to have a two step shutdown whereby turning the main power switch off, the fuel line has an electrically controlled shut-off valve that is de-energized and shuts the fuel supply off prior to the air pressure and ignition spark being shut-off. I am thinking a time delay off relay controlling the air pump/fan and ignition coil as well as all other electrical components outside of the fuel shut-off would provide for this stepped shut down. The mechanical engineering behind the fuel line shut down has me puzzled as most of these heaters incorporate the fuel filter into the upper segment of the fuel line there by leaving little fuel line real estate to cut in a solenoid operated fuel shut-off. In all my online searches I have yet to see this issue of unburnt residual fuel and the associated odor being addressed. These heaters do a fairly good job of efficiently burning the fuel while the heater is turned on and adjusted properly, but upon shut-off, the air pump/fan shuts off the combustion air and spark while fuel is still being drawn by a diminishing suction and remains in the air stream to pass by a lifeless spark plug and enter the space as an unburnt vapor.

Al Cyr: Didn't realize at first how old this video is. Great video, mine is pretty beat up, over 10 years old. probably over due for a tune up. I find the fumes are not as harsh using diesel over kerosene.

Robby Emerson: Thanks so Much! Just fixed an old heater I had in the shop not working in 5 years, in 2 min. just low pressure. Thanks for breaking it down and sharing your knowledge!

harley62t: Good subject and very good presentation - I wondered how those torpedo heaters worked, now I know! Thanks!!

Donny Driver: Mine was running fine last year and now not at all. I replaced the fuel line and it doesn't look to be drawing much fuel. I have diesel in the tank, could that be the problem. I've looked at the pump and that looks to be good I haven't checked the pressure though.

b mati: I have a model R115 Ready Heater kerosene heater, I have installed a new rotor, new heavy duty glow switch, new air filters, new fuel filter and have fresh kerosene in the unit. When I plug the unit in the glow plug comes on the I see fuel spraying into chamber but the unit runs for only a few seconds (10-15) then shuts down, any suggestions

juddbh: You are awesome! I got two that quit working and I'm about to cannibalize some crap and hopefully at least get one going. DO SOME BASIC SNOWMOBILE TROUBLESHOOTING PLEASE!!!!
