Are you using the correct size propane tank? The larger heaters require a 100 lb. tank.

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

Replacing the heater plug is a good idea but the problem will surely be on the heater relay. If the relay is faulty it tends to be weak that it may not give the heater plugs enough heat to make the engine turn on a single start. Once the heater plug is replaced I believe you'll be good.

Hope this helps and thank you for using Fixya! Have a good one!

I have a reddy heater pro 100 and when I start it up the fan turns but it won"t ignite. any help would be apprciated

You should be able to both see and hear the spark when this unit starts.
If you do not have spark the first thing you want to do in to clean and check the grounds on the heater.

You also need to make sure you have a good ground connection between the botton on the heater and the main section of the heater.

The spark on this unit need a good ground to complete the series and give you the spark required to start the heater.

If after you check this you can still not get spark you may need to replace the DSI Spark Controller.

Thank you

1999 Taurus, no heat. Not good with winter coming.

If the coolant is full and the thermostat is bringing the temperature of the engine up to par than I would bet with 95% certainty that the heater core is plugged.

You can try back flushing it. You'll need a pair of pliers, a drain bucket, a piece of heater hose the same diameter as the heater hoses (about 3/4"), and a couple of needle nose vice grips. Pinch off both of the heater hoses at least 6 inches or more from where the attach to the heater core with the needle nose vice grips. This will minimize coolant loss from the engine. Put a drain bucket under the car to catch any coolant that runs out (by the way this is going to make a huge mess). Remove the clamps and heater hoses from the heater core. install the short piece of 3/4 inch heater hose onto a garden hose. Install the other end on one of the heater core tubes. Using low water pressure flush the heater core. You should see a lot of nasty stuff come out. Repeat on the other heater core tube. Continue this process until the water runs clear.

Reinstall the heater hoses, remove needle nose vice grips, Top off the coolant in the radiator, start the vehicle and let idle. Continue to monitor the coolant level and add as necessary. You should start to get some heat with the blower setting at low. If the heat goes away at higher settings than you'll need to repeat the procedure described above. Sometimes driving for a couple of days will help loosen up the debris in the heater core.

Also if the coolant is really dirty that it will help too have the cooling system flushed as well to prevent the debris in the coolant from settling in the heater core after you have flushed the heater core.

There is always the possibility of the heater core leaking after an attempt to flush is made. Using low water pressure will help minimize this.
