The fuel heater is an electrical heating element, they fail. You can leave it unplugged if you use decent fuels and rarely, if ever, see temps colder than say 10*F in your area.

Its about 100 bucks to replace and a reminder... the post that sticks up that the fuel filter centers on is backward threaded LHT... I found out the hard way... Also the new heaters are a updated style to eliminate how the old heaters came apart and then short out.
