I don't have one but know the type of burner they use and it's not anything new. The old Coleman and perfection type oil heaters used the same type of burner. Mostly it's owner error. These types of burners need to heat the fuel to vaporization in a cage, wick, drum,pot of some sort. I call it a smudge pot. When burners are turned down low is when the problems start. Also there needs to be "draft" if the ex pipe is real short it may not induce enough draft either. the "carburetor" is a type of drip or flow controller and it has a needle valve that can coke up from the hot fuel. Why it's mounted away from the burner.

Pressurized burners work well but again they coke up from the super heated fuel on the metering or feed devices
