Question about Reddy Heating & Cooling
Heater motor would run but heater would not ignite. I took the bonnet off, cleaned the nozzel and the filter the comes from tank/line. When plugged in without bonnet, heater motor runs, ignites and heats fine. WITH BONNET ON HEATER motor runs but heater will not ignite. What is the problem? What can I do to fix it?
First, let me say that the general principal of fuel delivery ***to the spark plug*** depends on several things.
On your heater the first step is to set the air pressure to specs. Instructions are on the www.reddyparts.com website. This pressure setting directly affects fuel delivery & fuel atomization
This nozzle rule will only apply if everything is correct as far as fuel delivery applies. The pump pressure must be correct- not almost correct. Set the pressure with a low-pressure gauge that registers12-15 psi max. A gauge with a higher scale just will not read close enough to satisfy the system. If the pressure is not correct, the above rule will not apply. Instructions for setting the pressure can be viewed at http://reddyparts.com/pressure.htm.
