- Service Information
A clean work area at the start of each job is essential for efficient service work. Portable heaters which are extremely dirty should be cleaned prior to service. Cleaning will occasionally uncover the problem area. Tools needed for the job should be obtained before work is started. Clean fuel should always be used when testing heaters.
Many problems are often traced to the use of the wrong type of fuel or dirty fuel.
Use caution and common sense when working on a heater. Always remember that kerosene is flammable, electrical parts can result in the potential shock and the heater parts are hot during operation, which could result in burns if one is not careful.
After replacing the PP213 Air Filter Kit, always make sure to check the plastic pump end cover for any cracks or damage that would allow air to escape and not be directed to the nozzle. It is very common after time or from over tightening the plastic pump end cover for the cover to develop a crack. This small crack can prevent your heater from starting properly and running properly.
Warning: Never service a heater while it is plugged in, operating or still hot. Severe burns and electrical shock can occur.
Note: Correct pump pressure must be calibrated after installation:
This can be done using a low pressure gauge such as the HA1180 or an equivalent pressure gauge.
This can also be done by turning your pump adjustment screw clockwise until the nose cone of the heater is glowing orange all around the unit and just a little bit darker color on the last 3/4 of an inch of the center point of the nose cone.
This will give you the optimum heat from your unit as well as the least amount of fumes.
If fumes burn your eyes discontinue use and consult a service technician.
