Question about Reddy R60A Utility Heater

1 Answer

Heavy smell I have an All-Pro Kero Heater Model # R60A . I purchased it from Home Depot last Oct. It worked great for heating my garage, and there was very little odor. This year when I run it, the odor or fumes are so bad you can't stand it. I cannot fine my manual. Is this a adjustment problem, or a bad part?

    I have en older model that does the same thing. My unit also runs for a minute then cuts out and restarts a half second or so later. I have cleaned out all old kero, flushed tank with denatured alcohol, let it dry a day, then filled with new kero. Still smokes, smells, and cuts out. I keep it, hopping that I can find out what it needs. I have almost given up on it.

This is a fuel delivery problem. Look for:

  1. always start troubleshooting fuel problems on a Hot Surface Ignitor heater by checking the pump pressure!
  2. restricted fuel filter
  3. air leak
  4. restricted nozzle

did you try cleaning the lens of the photocell, they git dirty from smoke ver time which regulates the flame or replace the nozzle, sounds like it could be getting plugged up? usually any heating store would have a nozzle for a couple bucks if you get the number off it. the nozzle is right where it comes out and they are common to plug up at times with wear

since the combustion temp of diesel is different from KERO, expect the heater to shut down from overheating at times.
since it will probably heat up faster than on KERO.

I have a Remington 100 Heater. Was running fine until we had to refuel with kero that has a die in it. The heater will run for about 10-15 mins. then just start smoking with a heavy fuel smell. Cleaned the...

Similar heaters that use diesel have to routinely cope with the dye added to untaxed fuel, ditto similar heaters that use both fuels. Unless there was an excess of dye in the fuel you used the problem was probably a coincidence.

Dirt can be a big problem due to corrosion forming in the fuel tank caused by a relatively large percentage of moisture naturally in the fuel and the formation of condensation. Fuel is generally filtered through a fine gauze when the tank is filled but there is little or no filtration preventing dirt already in the tank from being picked up and finding a way into the spray head which generally jams the spinner affecting the quality of the fuel spray.

Cleaning the spinner and nozzle might work for a while but only a major clean out will restore reliability until the next time. It is also wise to check and adjust the pressure of the air pump.

Filters for dyna-glo pro

You can make your own filters out of felt and I have also found that with some minor modifications most of the parts from Mr. Heater will work with Dyna Glo. I have a 170btu kerosene heater and just installed an ignition, a high limit control and a flame sensor from Mr. Heater and it works like new.
