I'm trying to get some info on a Monitor 41 kero heater that I have. I'm not finding what I'm looking for elsewhere, so I thought I'd ask here. If anyone has knowledge of this older model or knows where I can go to find it, please DM me. I'd greatly appreciate any help.

Here (http://m41.jurtaman.com/Monitor%20Service%20Manual.pdf - broken link) is a manual. It's a PDF file.
This is a service manual for a 441 heater. Not sure if that's what you have or not.

I recommend you take the Monitor out and take it to the guy in the link above. Your Monitor will work well for years. Monitor type heaters are the most efficient use of oil to heat your home.

That said, your heater will require cleaning every few years. The Monitor is very expensive to clean. In addition, the fan bearings have poor reliability. The guy above will not just clean your Monitor; He will improve it.

That said, the Rinnai is a much better heater. It too will need to be cleaned, but it can be serviced at much lower cost. It is designed for long service.

Hello all. I am new and have never posted here before but I love my state and totally agree about keeping Maine strong by helping each other. I just happened to be searching info on Monitor heaters and this forum came up in my search.The Al's Heating gentleman you are referring to is the guy from Brunswick, isn't he? I regret to inform you that he passed away back in October of 2009. I didn't find out until the begining of 2010. I work for a local auto parts store and he was a famous (and infamous, lol) customer of mine for many years. I agree, he really knew what he was doing. I am not sure if he apprenticed anyone to continue in his footsteps and I don't think anyone took over his business, so unfortunately that avenue probably will not offer any help. I tried accessing his website, but it looks like it was taken down. I do know he worked very hard on a series of videos on how to rebuild and improve Monitor heaters but I wouldn't know how to find them, as they were probably on his website. Not sure if contacting a family member would get you some information? I will leave a link to his obituary: [url]http://www.brackettfuneralhome.com/visitations/View.php?id=503[/url]
