Yes. The kerosene burns hotter than diesel fuel and has no additives. It is pretty miraculous. It can often make a poorly-running heater run perfectly again. Some people run pure kerosene all time...

Where did the "rated for about 500 hours" claim come from? I'm with George. I simply don't believe this. A properly-installed unit will go a LOT longer than that. An improperly set up fuel system...

Yes, there has to be SOME underlying issue that caused the lockout. But, as I said before, I can think of no fuel-related failure that could could produce your current symptoms absent a lockout. The...

Agree with everything that George said. I would add this:
I think your immediate goal should be to get an EasyStart installed. I think that there is a very good chance that simply clearing the codes...

There are a bunch of Easy Starts available on eBay, if you wish to go that route.

These are not exotic devices.

That's hard to believe. OTOH, ThermoKing is a pretty reliable source, so....?

I would call Jim Rixen. You will get definitive information from him and he will know what to sell you. He is NOT a...

As discussed above, the EasyStart controller will clear such a lock and also let the owner read error messages so you are not running blind when there is a malfunction. Very inexpensive. IMO it is...

Speaking of removing the heater, here is a little trick I learned from Jim Rixen:
Get two long-nosed Vice Grips. You can use them to pinch the coolant hoses so you can remove the heater without...

Don't worry about it. If they service Espars (most, but not all, do) they will just unplug the Alde thing and run it with their own setup. Our local ThermoKing has a whole test stand with its own...

I second George's suggestion to try your local ThermoKing. Many of them service Espars for truckers every day.

Very possible. But that can't be the ONLY problem, because if it were you would still hear the combustion air pump for awhile as it attempts to ignite. I suspect that the unit is locked out due to...

But, we don' t really know what is controlling the coolant pump. It is usually controlled via an output from the D5's built-in controller. However, sometimes an external device controls it in order...

I don't see how it could be fuel related if he is not hearing the D5 attempting to start. Even with no fuel connection at all, it should at least begin the cycle, no? It won't discover the lack of...

So, this is a bit confusing. The Alde 3010 is itself a hydronic heater. Seems strange that you would have both it and an Espar D5. I think that there are three likely possibilities:
1) You DON'T...

I believe that Eberspacher is the new name for Espar, as of a few years ago.

It will be hard for folks to help you without knowing the exact model number of both the heater and the controller. If...
