This thing works pretty well, but shuts off at random sometimes. It'll run for an hour or so before it quits. Reset it, and off it goes again.

I used it a ton last year, but got a different heater this year.

I don't have much motivation to try and fix it as I was just using it as it was and resetting it when it stopped.

Price - $80. even has a full tank of diesel.

Pickup at my place in Boulder (near 30th and Baseline).

Kinda bad.... When i was using it in there i'd run it for a while before going in then work in there till it got cold. If I ran it while I was in there it'd really make my clothes stink.

I was cheap and ran it on diesel. I think they are a little bit better on kerosene?

If the new owner finds the cure it should not stink much. I run the same type in my garage all the time and I only get a little smell on start up and shut off. While running its not really noticeable. I run mine all day to build barriers in the winter. I only use diesel.

Maybe a filter of something is starting to get clogged? Hmm..... That'd make it run leaner. I do remember it not being that bad when it was new..
