Question about Reddy Heater-170,000 BTU Kerosene Deluxe

1 Answer

Homelite Torpedo Heater Model HH150A

Plug fires, fuel pumps, just before fuel gets to the burner, reset switch kicks off. Could it be the rubber coated component next to the plug, wired to the rest of the electrical connections? I've already had the relay and the reset switch checked, and they are both good.
Also, anyone know of a link where I can download the manual free for this model, so I can look at the schematics?

    Thanks, thats the part I was talking about, I just wasnt sure of the correct name for it. Still not fixed, because I'm having a time around here finding the part for it. I've got a couple of repair shops to go to tomorro in a couple of surrounding towns. So far, the places that I have been act like I'm crazy and I should just buy another heater. Not going to happen. I'll find the part somewhere. Any suggestions of any "parts" websites for Homelite HH150A torpedo heater photocell?

Don't rule out a defective relay (Safety Control) even though it's been checked. Also, you did not mention anything about testing the photocell,
Here's how. http://reddyparts.com/photocell_test_sp.htm

    www.reddyparts.com part # HA3019 photocell. Keep that old-style spark plug type heater going. Just my personal opinion- I favor them over the new computerized heaters.
