Torpedo kerosene heater shuts off after 15 seconds, have to push reset and it starts again, what's the problem?


Does it light? If it does it could be the electric eye that sees the flame and keeps the unit running. It is either dirty or bad. remove the eye and clean it. It pulls straight out and has two prongs on it. Does not matter how it goes back in. It is just a switch. Replace and try again. If it still does not light replace the eye.

If you cleaned the eye and or replaced it and it still does not work there are a few more things to check...
  • Not gtting enough fuel. Check the filter. Usually a small in line filter.
  • It also could be the transformer is getting weak. The transformer produces 10,000 volts between the two electrodes that keeps the heater running. I would only change the transformer if everything else checks out.
  • The electrodes may also need adjusted.
  • The nozzle also may not be atomizing the fuel properly to keep the unit running. I recommend changing it at least once a year depending on the use.
There are some good video on YouTube that will give you some great troubleshooting ideas.

Model# WP071107R, Serial# 10/2007, Reddy Heater 150,000 BTU The fuel tank has a crack. Where can I get a new tank?


You can try reddyheater .com or try a two part epoxy. Clean well with acetone, sand paper to create good adhesion then JB Weld or any other good grade epoxy. This will work in a bind until you locate a new tank.

sequence of operation is just like the monitor. combustion blower comes on to purge chamber of fumes. after the delay, the solenoid pump comes on and deposits fuel to the burner mat, within 20 sec the igniter comes on, incandesces and ignites the fuel if there is no flame, the flame rod is supposed to shut down heater and go into a lockout condition until shut off or unplugged to reset. check solenoid pump first. you already know the igniter works. check the fuel filter in the fuel sump might be clogged. check the fuel sump float valve, might be stuck, supposed to hang free in the sump with needle valve open. thermostat is digital just starts and shuts down the burner and solenoid pump.
