Question about Reddy R60A Utility Heater

1 Answer

Heater will not stay running

I have a Remington 60 kerosene heater. When I plug it in, it ignites and runs for about 5 seconds and then quits. There is an adjustment screw on the back and I have gotten the heater to run up to 10 seconds and then when it tries to run at full force it quits again.

    My Ready Heater Pro110 will start and run about 15 min. and then stop.

    I push the reset and it will run about 5 sec and stop. The next time I push the reset it would not run at all. I can wait about an hour and the the whole process will happen again.

    my reddy heater 60000 btu heater does the same thing, but when I remove the lid and handle assembly, it runs just fine. The only thing I can think this might is the photocell inside the housing. I think this is a safety device that shuts the heater down when the flame is gone. That part might be bad, but I dont know for sure

    My 60,000 btu heater quits after 5 seconds also. With the lid off it will run continuously.

Ready Heater 60 wont start. Fan runs for about 5 seconds and then stops.


Check the wires for good connections. If the connections are good, then check the adjustment for the ignitor (sparker or glowplug).

Igniter lites up fan kicks on and within 5 sec shuts off


Dustin, The ignitor only glows for 5 seconds, just long enough to ignite the fuel. The heater is shutting down because the photocell does not see the correct flame color.
Since you say "comes on for 5 seconds", I can only assume that there is a flame. You do not specify a lack of flame. I am also assuming that you have had the heater running this heater season and the problem just started.

YOU must find out if the problem is fuel delivery related or electronics related. Start by checking the pump pressure.
