Thin your fuel mix with about a gallon of kerosene to 5 gallon of heating oil.could also be a semi clogged fuel line filter.

Just installed Mr Heater Big Max 45 btu. Ran for two hours then exhaust fan made a high pitched noise and shut off. I turned unit off via thermostat and now all I get is three blinking lights and no...


with the unit unplugged try to turn the fan blade. If its hard to turn than this is a problem. You can try to oil the fan if it is hard to turn.

Ignites about every one half second puff blue smoke when fire puff blue smoke will not run continous


statelinespe,

You have a classic reddy heat problem. Daytons are made by Desa the same as reddy heat so they are the same. I have a tip at http://www.fixya.com/support/r4124129-yearly_maintenance_reddy_heaters which explains the problem and where to get the parts to fix it.

Thanks fo using FixYa and for the great rating.

Electric Heater Only works on Emergency Heat Setting.


I would say that you are on the right track.

Heater works, but only on Emergency Mode


It sounds like you have a "setback thermostat" A control intended to increase efficiency by allowing the fan to run for an adjustable amount of time after the heater turns off, whether the heater is electric or part of a heat pump. If the "setback" time is too long, the element will cool off and the fan will blow cold air. Try and locate the instructions for the thermostat and see if the "fan run time after heat turn off" is adjustable and reduce it by half. Most emergency heat circuits bypass control circuits (its an emergency, you know), and require manual control.

Heater smokes but doesn't turn on


It sounds like you have a dirty nozzle. Remove and replace with the same type. It may not be spraying a fine enough mist.
Hope this helps.
