Set the pump pressure. If correct check the nozzle. Desa recommends annual replacement.

A worn nozzle creates a spray pattern, where a good nozzle creates a fog. With a coarse spray pattern poor combustion results in an off color flame, . The photocell doesn’t like the color, sends a signal to the computer which shuts everything down. That’s the job of the electronics.

115,000 btu reddy heater, 5 hrs used in sprayfoam-grinding environment. stopped working. when plugged in, only hums for a few seconds, then stops. how can i fix that?


First, remove the top cover. Inspect for a varmint nest. If clear, manually spin the fan. If it does not you either have a broken rotor that is binding or you have a bad bearing.

If it spins freely, apply power- see if the motor runs with the top cover removed.
If YES, replace the top cover. Its possible that the top is binding the fan.
If NO, the start capacitor is defective. The cap on R115 is internal and is not servicable.

I have a Reddy Heater 70,000BTU without a thermostat. It will flare off and within a few seconds the fire goes out and then the it trips out. After a few tries it won't even flare off. What might be wrong?


hello. Your reddy heater is dirty and needs a good cleaning. Also, here are a few other possible reasons why it won't operate properly. Pressure not adjusted to 5.1 psi, dirty outlet filter, clogged inlet filter, bad or dirty photo cell, defective reset switch, pump going bad, dirty injector nozzle, dirty fuel filter, contaminated fuel. Check yours out and do what you can to address each area of concern. Regards, Joe

Reddy heater 110btu kerosene starts and shuts off?


I would say the thermostat is bad after reading your problem over several times. There is no reason to suspect a wiring problem, and I strongly suggest you don't bypass anything! A fire or explosion could result. Replace the thermostat as a probable cause.
