    I have been using both of mine and despite the nay Sayers I have found them to be very good

    1. Strip down unit....5 minutes.
    Inspect unit.....5 minutes.
    Reassemble....lets be generous...10 minutes.
    Total cost...£4.12 (Burner gasket)

    Really clean inside, no real need to clean the housing.



    What fuel are you using ?

    Rather like the picture from an Ebay seller of a "cheap" diesel heater--looks like it's on fire

    Whatever I have to hand, white, red or paraffin, it seems pretty happy on any of them.
    The only time I had a problem was when the glow plug failed, it was just over £10 for a new one....

    I’m now thinking chinerbacher version for £200. (£130 heater and kit Plus £70 for upgraded exhaust, clips, silencer etc..)

    Thank you for this thread BP and 6k. Judging this on value alone worth every penny

    It could mean China Export, one way to tell is to check the "E", if the middle of the "E" is indented slightly then it conforms to EU certification (unless of course the label is simply a copy).

    More than happy with mine. I fired it up for the first time since the Spring last week. It had to run through the start cycle 3 times get the fuel line primed, but then away it went. Took the cabin from 8oC to 25oC in approx 30 minutes, no smoke no nonsense.
