Re: Dickinson Newport diesel heater - no fuel flow

Not sure of your particular model but my experience with gravity feed burners has been condensation in the lines and carb, stuck needle and seat at the float and most common ,carbon buildup in the fuel port in the burner. It can go way in . a good reaming and blow out is the cure. Turning the stove too low at night is the cause. Lighter stove oil burns cleaner and will require carb float adjustment Carb should be on same fore/aft line as burner. I used to switch from summer diesel to winter stove mainly because engine ran on same day tank. ps inspect the temp cut off on the carb. If the PO it got too hot and melted the plug it won't work until replaced A pulse pump in line will do wonders
