Question about Reddy R155D Utility Heater
I can get the unit fired but the pressure will not adjust. If put a clamp on the fuel line to restrict the pressure it runs fine (air pressure is still not right) , but when the top cover is placed on the unit the flame goes out!!!
Provided the rotor and vanes are serviceable the pump should produce around 10 psi if you completely close off the airline tubing. If your gauge will not read with the tubing totally restricted, then I would check the relief valve to see if the ball is in first, then the spring, then the screw with the hole. These items should be in the longer of the 2 bosses. If no pressure reading at this time you either have a broken rotor or a defective gauge.
If you get some pressure with the tubing restricted, but there is not enough, then use soapy water to find the air leak. If there is a crack in the plastic end cover- replace it.
