I plug my heater in and it runs for 15 – 30 seconds, then pops the reset button”

Step by step- here is what to do:

  1. Determine the unit has fuel.
  2. If no flame is present, then go to the next step. If, yes, the heater does have a flame, then go to #8.
  3. Remove the top cover. Start the heater.
  4. Is there spark at the plug? If yes, then proceed to the next step. If no, go here.
  5. Is fuel spraying into the chamber? If yes, then proceed. If no, go here.
  6. At this point, you have agreed that there is both spark and fuel delivery, if not go back to steps 4 and 5.
  7. If there is spark and fuel is present, but there is no flame, then check the following:
  • the condition of the airline
  • the condition of the fuel line
  • a leak in the nozzle adapter
  • a restriction in the nozzle
  • a worn nozzle
  • a restriction in the fuel filter
  • a defective fan
  • the breather hole in the fuel cap is clogged
  • water in the tank

   8. If there is a flame present, but the reset (Safety Control) continues to trip, then *temporarily*       bypass the Safety Control. If the heater runs continuously and you are pleased, then immediately replace the defective Safety Control. Do NOT run bypassed!
