Question about Reddy R60A Utility Heater
The R50 does not have a thermostat.
The 2 knobs that you mention- are they the screws in the black plastic end cover?
If so, these are the heartbeat of the fuel system and do not adjust. They adjust the air pump pressure which puts fuel in the nozzle and atomizes it. The pump pressure is critical. If the pressure is not correct the heater will shut down.
If you have adjusted the screw with a hole in it you will need to reset the pump pressure to specs. It's easy. http://reddyparts.com/photocell_test_sp.htm
Now, if you have not adjusted the pump, then you might want to check the tank for water.
