I am so confused with this heater . I have purchased 3 different filter replacements for my general filter. Each time i put the filter in my monitor heater stops working. when i omit the filter the heater runs great like it supposed to. I have @ 5 inches of fuel in my tank so no problem getting fuel.

How high is the bottom of the tank above the monitor heater?

What brand and model filter are you using.

May have a restriction building up near the opening in the tank.

I would use the gray wool filter element instead of the white gear cog looking one. Although they have the same rating. I find the gray one seems to allow oil to flow through it easier.

I have tried two gray ones and one white they all do the same thing. It is so crazy not sure what to do next.

Blow out oil line to see if there is anything restricting it.
