Question about Reddy 165000btu Kero Heater
My heater turns on and tries to run but it only runs for a few seconds and turns off. I replaced the rotor, filters, and end covers. I checked the pump pressure and have tried to adjust it many times but it will not go above 2.5psi. It is supposed to be set at 5.6psi. Any suggestions?
Here is the link to the manual if you need it. I guess you have gone through all the pump pressure procedure as they describe on page 7. http://22.214.171.124/manuals/102439-01E.pdf Check if you definitely have a seal around the pump plate and at the shaft etc. Check if the blades actually do fit or possibly are an incorrect size, and that any gaskets or seals are not the incorrect thickness giving a gap down the sides of the blades. check that lubricating grease etc. is not clogging normal blade operation. check all inlets/outlets are clear it sounds to me like the problem has to be inside the pump. unless there is something fundamentally wrong with the motor or it's power supply. Hope this helps :)
