Troubleshooting


Burgess Propane Fogger

  1. Nozzle and/or end of coil obstructed or clogged. Remove and clean nozzle orifice (see Figures 1 & 2). Remove carbon build-up from inside the coil if necessary (see Figure 3).
  2. Pump plugged. Insert a small wire or toothpick into the hole at bottom of piston assembly to clean obstruction (see Figure 4). If this doesn't fix the issue, the pump assembly will need to be replaced.*
  3. Piston is worn. The piston will need to be replaced by ordering the piston assembly pump parts kit.
  4. Improper fogging material. Use only Black Flag, Cutter, or Repel branded fogging insecticide.
  1. Propane cylinder low or empty. Replace with new propane cylinder (see Figure 5).
  2. Propane cylinder attached improperly. Make sure there is no dirt or debris on the orifice (where the propane goes into the back of the tank) or the propane cylinder itself. Screw in the propane cylinder securely (see Figure 5) being careful not to cross thread. Hand tighten only. NOTE: We recommend using a 14.1 oz., tall style propane cylinder.
  3. Burner assembly fails to light or will not say lit. Please contact us at 1-800-311-9903 as the burner assembly will need to be replaced. Unfortunately it is not customer serviceable.
  1. Improper fogging material. Use only Black Flag, Cutter, or Repel branded fogging insecticide.
  2. Fog is thin or yellowish. The pumping rate is too slow; therefore, increase your pumping speed to once every 3-4 seconds.
  3. Fog is wet and dripping from nozzle. It's very important to allow the fogger to preheat at least 2 minutes before starting to fog. If you have already done this and the fog is still dripping, simply wait an additional 15 seconds. In addition, you might need to decrease your pumping rate to once every 3-4 seconds to give the insecticide a chance to go through the heat-conducting coil and vaporize into a fog.

  1. Nozzle loose. Once fogger is cool to the touch, tighten nozzle securely (see Figure 6).
  2. Excessive insecticide output. Decrease your pumping speed to once every 3-4 seconds. (see Figure 7). Make sure the fogger is level to the ground. Pointing towards the ground can cause a flare up.
  3. Not at operating temperature. Make sure you have preheated the fogger for 2 minutes before starting to fog. If you did preheat the fogger, wait an additional 10-15 seconds before pumping.
  1. Fogger pointed toward the ground. Always operate your fogger level with the ground. Pointing the fogger towards the ground will cause the insecticide to rush through the coil and cause a flare up. If a flare-up occurs, turn off the propane and set the fogger on a level, non-flammable surface. If possible, remove the propane cylinder. Flames will disappear as soon as the excess insecticide is evaporated. Please contact us at 1-800-311-9903 to determine the cause.
  2. New propane cylinder or incorrect size cylinder. We recommend using a 14.1 tall style propane cylinder. New cylinders are more prone to flare-ups. If a flare-up occurs, turn off the propane and set the fogger on a level, non-flammable surface. If possible, remove the propane cylinder. Please contact us at 1-800-311-9903 to determine the cause.
  3. Insecticide ignited. Stop pumping the trigger immediately and turn propane valve off. Set fogger on a level, non-flammable surface. If possible, remove the propane cylinder. The flame will go out after excess insecticide is burned off. Please contact us at 1-800-311-9903 to determine the cause.
