Question about Reddy Heater-30,000 BTU Propane Forced-Air Heater

Dyna Glo forced air propane heater

When I plug the heater in, the fan starts, and the igniter is firing...when I move the dial to the "low/ignite" setting and keep it depressed, it fires up; when I release the dial, the igniter is still clicking. When I move the dial to med or high, the igniter still sparks. Is this supposed to happen?

I just received this from a friend and there is no manual. I'm not sure if the spark keeps it lit, or if it should shut off once I release the dial. There is s tube inside that glows red, so I figured that is what generates the flame.

...found out that this is a continuous ignition heater so the igniter is always on.

It is a continuous ignition. I have been using one seasonally for 5 years.
Clicking the whole time.

It does no harm for the spark ignition to run. The bright red tube is the thermocouple. A simple temperature saftey switch.

It tells the control board that there is a fire and it is safe to allow gas into the burner.

No fire, no red tube. No gas to burner and vice versa.

My 40-FAC heater will not ignite and run. The igniter has been replaced. What should I check next?


These models require electrical power to run the blower fan.
When you connect the electrical cord, the fan should turn on, then you should be able to start / ignite the propane. if the fan does not turn on when you connect the power cord, you will not be able to ignite the propane.

Dyna glo pro forced air heater won't ignite?


I've had mine for about 8 years now. Just started spitting out fuel and failing to ignite. Took it all apart and found a couple of cracked lines where they went on to the fittings. One was to the air pump and the other was a fuel line at the manifold. Cut them both back and reattached, but it still wouldn't ignite. Then I checked the pressure coming off the air pump and it was at 2 psi, should be at 3.4 on mine. Adjusted the fuel pressure up and bingo, it lit right up as soon as the pressure was right.

I have same heater and problem-1) Check fuel inlet screens at bottom of hose in tank 2) Check air filters at fan module opposite end of the fan blade 3)Check for spark in ignition chamber 4) Check for fuel flow in ignition chamber (look at pressure gauge at opposite end from air exit) You'll have to remove the top cover to do these checks. The side covers will hang on each side ok. I hope these checks help you out.Good luck.
