Question about Reddy Heater-170,000 BTU Kerosene Deluxe
Starts up and fires up, runs for 2-3 min. then blows a puff of smoke ans shuts down. will not restart until you unplug it and plug it back in
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!

Does your heater use the older spark plug technology or the newer Hot Surface Ignitor (HSI) technology?
Without this critical information about all this technician can do is guess.
My best guess at this time would be either water in the fuel or a restricted fuel filter.
