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