You need to check the pressure - need a gauge to screw in to the (1/8 NPT pipe thread) the plugged off pressure test port (The other port has a slotted plastic screw for pressure adjustment) if it is not in spec (pressure is on the information label, but should be 3.8 PSI (yes they measure pressure in tenths) if it is actually a DFA75 )

Pressure losses usually found at the end cover (cracks, leaking gasket) or hoses (cracks or holes worn through) Heater operates by drawing fuel up through the nozzle by way of venturi effect as the air pressure blows through nozzle - any loss of air pressure between nozzle and the pump is reflected in lower pressure and reduced air flow, resulting in not drawing fuel.

You probably have a cracked end cover ( part number 21-1041) would be my bet. or a bad hose (21-1016) Pressure gauges can be had for cheap (21-1115 ) or if you want to get serious in repairing those heaters, HA1180 Gauge kit - Most or all of the parts we list on ebay (and some listed on our web store) but the main thing you need to do is check and verify pressure. - As to the pressure adjustment if you happen to have removed it assembly is the ball goes in followed by spring then the adjustment plug (which will have a hole through it for pressure relief) - if it has been taken apart before by someone without a clue, check to make sure spring and ball are present and placed in the correct holes.

*edit to add* Oh by the way , post probably sorta belongs more in the "other" forum further down the board list but whatever. :)
*edit #2* - Also the air filter kit for that includes gasket for the end cover, part number FA1005

Thanks for moving ke4avb sorry about the posting location and the trouble thanks for correcting me on place to post. I was thinking on more on it being a heater instead of a tool. Sorry again and thanks for your time.
