DUBEAURD- generally if a heater with a hot surface ignitor will run for 10 minutes then thats an indication that the electronics are functioning properly, so for now, eliminate "any fuel delivery problems" before trouble shooting the electronics.

Some possibilities:

  1. the plastic end cover is cracked. When the room heats up the crack expands allowing the air pressure to fluctuate.
  2. the air pump pressure is not correct. (instructions at www.reddyparts.com )
  3. the fuel filter is restricted.
  4. the nozzle is restricted or worn.
  5. there is an air leak between the pump & the nozzle.
  6. water in the fuel. When a droplet passes through there is a momentary flameout condition which will cause the photocell to shut the unit down.
If these all check out then it's time to move to electronics. Get back with us.

Hi i have a ready heater 170T i cleaned it last year to help out our main heater in our barn for when its get way to cold for our main heater to keep up so i turn this on when i am back there for the day...


Based on your description of the problem ............The part where you say "wont relight till it cools down" is a sign that the motor may be getting hot, the internal sensor in the motor is shutting things down for safety reasons. To find out run the heater til it shuts down then remove the cover. Feel the motor. It should be room temp or slightly warm. If hot- replace the motor with 102001-30.

Other possibilities would be a defective thermostat or temperature sensor. Eliminate these possibilities first.

Heater will run for 15-20min then the flame goes out ..Lots of smoke..fan keeps going fuel stays on...I cleaned filter and put new fuel..same thing..115000btu reddy heater..its new in 09..


Sounds like a thermostat problem causing it to run for short periods of time. Check your thermostat first you most likely find the problem there.

R55B Reddy Heater won't stay running. (PMS? menopause?)


Wow! Yours is the best description of a problem I have ever seen!!! Before I read the whole thing I figured you missed the pressure check as most people do but you nailed it. This is what I would try, Replace the air filter, the fuel filter, and the fuel (to make absolutely sure there is no water in the fuel) and readjust the fuel/air mixture. If that does not do it replace the cadmium cell they only cost pennies. Let me know how you make out and good luck.

PS, I have one of these so I am pretty familiar with the problems.

Pro 110, runs 10 min., blows white smoke ,shuts off


the first thing you need to do is go back to useing K1 kerosene, diesel fuel not only burns dirty but also has a tendency to gel up in cold weather which could be makeing it hard for the heater to draw the proper amount of fuel. To reset the pressure you will need a gage, it should run at about 6-7 psi. you can order a pressure gage from mr. heater online, they are by far the cheapest I have found as they are the actual manufacturer or call 1-800-251-0001

My best guess is that you are are connecting to your AC receptacle with an extention cord that is too small. The Reddy Heater contains a computer that will shut the unit off if it cannot pull enough amps from your service. The longer the cord the higher the loss from receptacle to unit. This loss can be reduced by increasing the size of your extention cord. I run a 100' 10/2 cord.

Hope this helps!
