Are you in NC? Sounds like it could be the flame rod dirty. Could also be a dirty fuel filter or the burner mat may be loose. A warped flame ring can also cause this to happen. Check the flame rod. It can be cleaned with some steelwool or emory cloth. Is the flame in the burner yellow or is it blue like it should be. If it isn\'t blue then something is going on in the burner. Check the fuel filter and make sure it isn\'t clogged. If you are in NC and anywhere close to Winston Salem I can check it out for you.

I have an MPI 41 Kerosene (K-1) monitor heating my home. Every time the monitor starts it gives off an intense smell of Kerosene. It lasts about 4-5 minutes after starting and then the smell seems to...


I would check all fuel lines, connections, and watch how long it takes to ignite. Kerosene heaters should atomize fuel meaning it should look like a fog not droplets, so that would point to fuel nozzle problems. That being said it should exhaust out side not in to the house, inspect the burning chamber real good for cracks or leakage? If this unit has a flue or damper make sure it has a good draft to exhaust the burnt fuel. This is purely speculation not a solution, these are things I would be looking for if it were in my home. Good luck

My kerosene monitor heater with the model number M441 isnt workin correctly , ive changed the filter outside that goes into the tank and replaced the burner and still it isnt working , the burner status...


First thing to do is clean the flame rod. Take the black grill off of the front of the heater (6 ro 7 screws). Now locate the flame rod. It is beside the window where you can look into the burner. It has one wire going to it. Be careful so you don't damage the gasket. The rod goes in then straight down, so you will have to turn it to get it out. You can clean it with some steelwool or emory cloth. Reinstall it and try the heater.
Listen to the heater. If it cuts off, does the fuel pump start making a thumping before the heater cuts off? If it does, the heater is running out of fuel for some reason. I know you checked the filter, but did you check the strainer in the fuel sump. You can find it on the right side of the heater at the bottom. Make sure you turn off the fuel at the barrel before you remove it and have some rags ready to soak up the kerosene that will come out. Clean the filter with some kerosene if it needs it.
Let me know what you find and don't forget to rate my answer. Thanks.

I have a Maytag Oven Model CRG9800BAE Will not ignite gas when turned on.


are you saying that when you set it to bake the oven doesn't heat or are you talking about the top burners?if it's the oven you have a bad ignitor, the oven flame should lite in under 40 seconds to a minute,if it doesn't it's the ignitor,part number 12400035 and it's around 80 bucks.unplug it or kill the braker,take out the racks,remove the bottom panel or oven floor,take off the wing nut and remove the metal cover and you'll see the burner tube and the ignitor,,with a wet paper towel wet the screw threds on the two screws with water so they don't strip out and then remove the two screws holding the ignitor on,trust me it works.if you have to, unplug the ignitor or if it's not the original ignitor cut the two wires at the end of the old ignitor and connect the new ignitor with the ceramic wire caps and remove the burner tube if it's hard to get at the ignitor screws.put it back together and the ignitor should lite the flame in less than a minute.let me know how you make out

MPI Heater keeps shutting off and wont turn back on when it does. we try to reset it and for some reason it will try to go back on but will not fire up. It is cold in here and we have dyed kerosene so why...


Your problem may be a dirty flame sensor which can be cleaned with some steelwool. If the heater makes a ticking or thumping noise before it cuts off it is not getting fuel to the pump and you would need to check your filter and also the strainer in the fuel sump. Make sure you don't have water in your kerosene either. You can find an owner's manual at www.monitorproducts.com which will give you some more info.

MPI 41 Keresene Monitor Heater LIft Pump over-primed?


I recently relocated monitor heater from living room to dining room and ran new line to heater. I have pressed the priming button located on right side and turn unit on, but all that happens is it will click on run for a cycle and burner never ignites and then turns itself off and burner indicator lights continue to blink on and off, I dont think it is getting proper fuel to unit. What do I need to do?

Monitor Reset


The following conditions must occur to complete a Trip and test all OBD II monitors and components including the Catalyst Efficiency Monitor:
-- The misfire, comprehensive component, and adaptive fuel monitors are checked continuously from engine warm-up and can complete any time.
-- The exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) monitor test requires a series of idles and accelerations.
-- The heated oxygen sensor (HO2S) monitor requires a steady speed drive for approximately 1 minute at 30 to 40 mph.
-- The catalyst efficiency monitor requires a steady speed drive for 1 minute and 20 seconds beyond the HO2S monitor test at 40 to 65 mph.
If you cut engine off before test are completed then you must wait for a 6 hour cool down before monitors will run again.

Mpi monitor 422 heat problem


I had the same problem last night and this morning. Its in the manual. I had to take the fan off of the back and vaccuum out all of the dust/lint that built up and it was a lot. It is a safety feature. It's a overheating protection feature that usually triggers if there is build up in the fan, front vent or vent pipe to the outside. I hope this helps.
