Canít get my 30,000 btu torpedo heater to stay lit. Drained it and refilled it with Kerosene. Pump is pumping fuel up to burner. Any suggestions would be appreciated before I tear into this thing.

Old enough to know better, but dumb enough to still try.

Yeah it burns but not for very long. Initially I had diesel in it and thought it was getting old, so I drained it and filled it with Kerosene. Same results.

Turn the pressure up on it. Not a lot, just ease it up until it burns steady. Turn the temp all the way up and burn through a couple tanks.
