I have a 35K btu kerosene fired torpedo heater that has given me years of reliable service. Starting late last winter, it started to "burp"- stop burning for a sec, then re-ignite, belching out a big blue cloud of smoke. It is getting more and more frequent, to the point I really can't use it until it is fixed. BTW, it has never had old fuel, always fresh, and stored dry during the summer.

Before I re-invent the wheel trying to figure out what is wrong and how to fix it, can anyone point me in a direction?

Thanks in advance

I used one for a dozen plus years....when they start to go I balance cost and safety.....and bought a new one.....
