Question about Reddy Heater-170,000 BTU Kerosene Deluxe

3 Answers

Reddy Heater will not ignite flame

Have an older Reddy Heater Pro 110. Some years ago it was being used and ran out of K1 fuel while being used. If you plug it into the outlet (with a full tank of K1) only the fan works. Looking for suggestions about fixing the heater. I did take apart the heater and the only thing that I can see could be wrong is a black "box" under the fan (ignitor starter circuit) or somewhere there is a fuse or maybe a pump failure ? Has anyone had this problem ? Thanks.

    I have a pro 150 That has a spark Plug ( FI2150) and was working fine, I turned it off then went to turn back on and it runs but will not fire, I checked the spark plug wire with a spark plug wire tester and it has power and checked the fuel pressure @ 5lbs, but still cannot get it to start.

    Any Suggestions

    I have a reddy heater 110 with the same problem. Fan runs, plug shows fire but doesn't seem to be getting fuel. Fan runs a few seconds and then trips the reset.

Please answer the following questions. There are several folks on the board that can help but we need to know some vital information so we can get started. Answer these, if you can:

  1. Which Pro 110 do you have. We need the exact model number. Pro 110 is a series of heaters.
  2. Does the heater have a spark plug or a glowbar (HSI)?
  3. When the motor runs is it pumping fuel?
  4. When the motor runs is the spark plug firing (or glowbar glowing)?

I'm having the same issue. I have a 110 pro, 110,000 BTU. It has a spark plug. When I turn it on the fan comes on and it blows kero out the front but won't light. I pulled spark plug wire off and checked to make sure I have juice and I do. It has always worked before.

I had the same problem with my r-110, it had always run good until recently. i would plug it in, and it would run about 10 sec. without igniting and shut off. here's what corrected my problem. pulled the spark plug ( an elongated spark plug) and checked the gap. it was about half of the recommended .070 gap. i hope this helps. craig

Will not turn up, furnace ran in morning not in evening

If it is a gas furnace it may be either the ignighter or the flame sensor. both are serviceable by the average person, but finding the parts not that easy. I got mine from a local wholesaler as they were more expensive on line.

Cannot get gas to flow to pilot flame with main valve parallel to gas pipe. Is there something I must push to make gas flow to the pilot flame pipe?

you said, in effect: Cannot get gas to light the pilot flame even though manual supply valve is open. Is there something I must push to light [ignite] the pilot? Permalink
The gas supply valve is open, and the pilot gas cutoff valve is open but [it seems like] gas will not flow to the pilot flame because it will not light when I supply a match or lighter flame. I remember there is a button or something I need to press...but where it it? I cannot find it.
