If you have a kerosene heater, then you need to pay attention to when you need parts. Sometimes these parts can be found at your local repair and restoration store. When you need specific parts you have to make sure you go to a specialist or even a potential dealer to get the parts you need.
The first step in making sure your kerosene heater is working its best is to get the replacement parts as you need them. Do you need replacement parts? Is your kerosene heater going out? Here are signs this is happening so you can make changes as needed.
Your unit isn't warming up your areas
A kerosene heater often heats a specific area of a property so you should be able to tell rather quickly if there are issues with it. However, if it's not heating as it should be and you worry that it's not because the kerosene is low or empty, then you may have a more serious issue with your heater. Call your local kerosene heater specialist to see if you can order some heater parts to help make the situation better and get your heater back in working condition.
Your unit won't turn on or off
Any heating unit that isn't operating like it should can become not just a nuisance, but an actual hazard. Work with a heater parts specialist or technician to see what parts your kerosene heater needs. In other words, don't guess what your heater needs and try to buy the heater parts yourself. This can save you time and money and can potentially protect you against getting hurt in trying to repair your unit yourself.
Kerosene is flammable and potentially dangerous. If your kerosene heater needs repairs, then don't try to fix them yourself or you will get injured or at the very least, put your unit in danger of further issues.
Your unit is using more kerosene than usual
Any excessive amount of kerosene being used is an indicator that your heater isn't working right and may have a leak. Immediately quit using your kerosene heater so you don't create a fire or explosion risk and call your heating specialist right away. Special kerosene heater parts or other heater parts can be ordered if needed, and you may be able to rent an alternative heater until you can get your kerosene one fixed.
