Question about Reddy Heater-30-55,000 BTU Variable

4 Answers

I have a Reddy heater Pro 155 that will not start up

When you plug in my heater in it will begin to glow red on the inside for about 3 sec. then it will shut off. The blower does kick in right away as soon as you plug the heater in. Then the whole heater turns off. If I unplug and then replug it will do the same thing. I would really like to fix this heater. Please help anyone!!

Thanks!!

I have an older model 155, bought in the fall of 2000 and at one time I had that same problem. I believe at that time I wound up replacing the filter on the end of the fuel pick-up line. I bought the filter(s) at a local rental/repair place. The only other thing I have ever had to do to this heater is replace the igniter a couple of years after the filter problem.

Since you did not state anything about the presence of a flame, it sounds as if there is a fuel delivery problem. The Photocell is shutting the heater down because it does not see a flame.

You can refer to this manual: http://www.bealsmotor.com/Desa%20Hot%20Surface%20Manual.pdf
They have a detailed troubleshooting guide. You will need a multimeter and some electronic experience for some of the tests. I hope this helps!

Fan comes on glow plug lights up but no flame.3 sec. fan shuts down.Have clean all lines, tips everything. Model 60 Reddy used very little in ten years.


this have a flame controler, if the flame didn't goes on in few seconds the unit automatically stops. back plug and start again, if not star after tree times check the flame control thermocuple, or get the unit in service to fix it.

Reddi heater 155 owners manual?


If this has a hot surface igniter, can you see it glowing? If not the igniter could be bad or the control
board for the igniter is baed.

If you are able, remover the igniter and hook it up to a 110 outlet, if it glows the problem is in the board.

If it has a board, follow the incoming power to line 1
and line 2. You will either have to splice the two leads
from the igniter into L1 and L2 or get a special spade
connector that can hold two leads on each terminal.

Plug unit in, glow coil should glow and unit should run
thats assuming you have that style of unit. Do not
attempt to do this unless you can safely perform this.

If you know of an electrician he can do this.

Reddy pro155 runs for 3 to 5 seconds


Reply with the correct model number. "Pro 155" designates a series. We need to know whether you have a heater with a spark plug or a heater with an ignitor (glowbar).

I have a Reddy heater pro 155.


Check all of your air filters but most likely it's the CAD flame sensor.

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.
