Im not sure how to adjust the nozzle pressure, but mine was not getting enough pressure because the air filter had plugged up and had bad fuel lines. I couldn't buy a new air filter so I got a cheapo off brand one from the hardware and cut it to fit. Got good pressure and had no problems since.

Check the ignitor circuit. Check also your ignitor spark gap making sure it is not too far or shorted.

Sounds lik the vent hole in the filler cap is plugged. Try cleaning it or replace the cap.

Things I would check in order:
when you plug it in and it "hums" does the fan rotate? if so does the ignitor fire? remove the top cover and look at the fuel nozzle while running, should be an even cone shaped spray pattern. if no spark remove the ignition lead and hold it close to the end of the ignitor, check for spark there, you should be able to slowly pull it farther away fron the ignitor up to about an inch(use insulated pliers) cause if it bites you it stings, if not the ignition module is going bad. if you have a weak fuel spray remove the back plastic cover on the motor and there are filters inside, then remove the six bolts that hold the inside of the filter housing to the motor. inside is your pump, should be a round carbon rotor and four pump vanes. make sure that there is no damage and also check the plastic coupler that the rotor attaches to the motor armature. if everything looks good re-install the pump and filter housing. like in the previous post check the fuel hose and the hose running from the pump to the fuel nozzle for cracks. you need a pressure gauge that is in 1psi. increments and install it in the port on the back of the pump housing that does not have a hole in it. run the heater and check the pressure, it should be around 5psi but the pressure setting should be listed on the side of the heater. to adjust the pressure turn the plug with the hole in it until the pressure setting is correct. as long as everything checks out the problem is usually solved. depending on the model heater there are photocells(flame sensors), high temo sensors, and thermostats that could hinder the function of the heater. these are just some basic troubleshooting steps for forced air kerosene heaters

did you put new fuel in and press the reset button located near the plug?

Reddy Heater... | Answered on Feb 13, 2011


Clean the sensor that insures flame is burning.

The fuel is drawn from the tank by vacuum. If there is any kind of dirt in the fuel or tank, it will clog up that tube and not fire up. Also there is a foam filter at the rear that could be dirty. There is also a reset button by the filter that needs to be reset every time it runs out of fuel.

Check the wires for good connections. If the connections are good, then check the adjustment for the ignitor (sparker or glowplug).

Replace the spark plug first. The fuel may also be contaminated. If you can stand the
smoke go for it.
