Hi Everyone,
I recently bought a 2nd hand El Diablo im having issues with the heater.
it was working well but then all of a sudden it has stopped, it fires for about 2 seconds then stops with no heat.
I have checked spark and there is heaps of it. I don't think the diesel is getting through to the solenoid
any ideas?
still have psi etc but just not heating.
any info will be helpful
Ben

Could be a lot of things but first two things check the diesel fuel filter and flow switch. You can get bad diesel but I'm guessing fuel filter needs replaced . Flow switch dirty sometimes it allows to fire then not. When you clean the flow switch squirt some WD40 on it to get it to move freely. You will clear/clean out the WD40 when you test it.
