SOURCE: Reddy Heater R40 starts , then within a few

The R40 has an on board computer with a photocell that views the flame color. If the photocell does not like the color of the flame, then the heater shuts down....within 5 secs.
Your problem could be:

  1. the air pump pressure incorrect..
  2. defective electronics.
  3. restricted fuel supply.
  4. air leak in air line or fuel line
You must troubleshoot each of the above- starting with setting the pump pressure.

SOURCE: 150,000 BTU propane Reddy Heater shuts off after ignition

Is there a frost line on your LP tank, if so you may need to replace the tank with a larger tank or refill your tank. This can happen if the tank your using is too low or too small (use 100 lb tank or greater). If there is no frost line it may be an issue with the thermocouple. The manufacturer offers a service manual and owner's manuals on there site. This should assist you... www.desatech.com Thank you

Can I turn the burner down low so it does not heat up too fast. The built in thermosat does not shut it down untill it gets 10 to 15 degrees abouve the setting.


If there is a flame adjustible control knob allowing you to do so, than yes. You should not cut back gas presure at a gas shut-off valve. Metering the gas in like this could possibly create C/O. from incomplete combustion and lack of primary air.

The piolet light will not light. If I turn the


You may have a plugged orifice in the pilot tube assy. If you have any way of getting to the orifice with compressed air, and blow back, it may dislodge it, if it is plugged. If possible, carefully remove pilot tube at valve end first, so that if it is debris in there, it blows clean of the tube, so it won't clog again. Otherwise you'll have to remove complete assy. Another thing to try as well, is to shut valve off, loosen fitting at valve for pilot tube, AND MAKING SURE NO FLAME OR SPARK ANYWHERE IN THE AREA, take a spray bottle with dish soap and water mixed (bubble tester) and then spray at pilot fitting when it is loose, and push pilot, to see if any bubbles appear, indicating gas flow. If no flow there, then I'd get a new gas valve.

Weatherking furnace is starting and stopping


This just sounds like a couple of problems. First, your blower is designed to only turn on once the heat exchanger heats up, so the flame will be on for a minute or two before the blower starts. it sounds like your blower is cooling down the heat exchanger too fast and causing it to shut off so it can warm up again...check blower speed for heat, it should be the lowest speed (black wire). Blue=medium speed, red= high speed. second problem could be your flame sensor rod is calcified, you just need to locate this and clean it off with some fine sand paper.it is located in the flames near the burners. Also change your filters, for proper air flow through your heat exchanger.

I have DCS FSF-40N fryer. the piolet doesn't stay on when I release my finger it goes off I tried to change the gas valve from different brand and I only replaced small part where the electrical wire is...


You must first check to see if your pilot flame is good. If it is too weak, or not impinging properly on the thermopile, it will not stay lit. If the pilot flame is ok, the problem could be that the thermopile is weak. using a millivolt meter, test the voltage across the thermopile while the pilot is lit (you may need someone to hold the button down while you do this). You will also need to disconnect the thermopile's leads from the control while you do this. You should get about 750 millivolts across the thermopile while the flame is on it (let it heat for a while to stabilize). If your reading is too low, your thermopile may be shot and needs to be replaced. That is of course only if your flame is proper. That voltage is needed (or close) to keep the magnet open so it will stay lit when you let the button go.

Flames only come out very low on both sides


disconnect tank, hook tank back up, then open valve slowly. When opened to fast it thinks valve is leaking and shuts down.

PILOT LIGHT WILL NOT LIGHT


the thermocouple not only keeps the pilot on but lets the gas valve know its okay to open on a call for heat, remove your thermocouple and clean it with a fine grit sandpaper and if this doesn't work replace it all together.

How flem sensor works in furness


After you hearthe click from the ignitor your piolet will light. the flame sensor (mounted next to the piolet (tip in the flame) ) will sence the heat from the piolet sending a milivolt siginal back to the ignation board. once the board knows there is a piolet and the system is safe the main valve will open igniting the burner trays.

Pilot light wont lit up


Change The Thermostat Cause If Your Getting Gas But The Water Heater Doesn't Detect The Heat It Will Close The Valve. When Lighting You Hold The Button Down For About 30 seconds so the thermostat will detect flame and stay lit. Check To Make Sure The Thermostat Is Where It Should Be. Heres A Picture Of What It Will Look Like.

When heater fails to start


if the flue is warm that would indicate that the flames lit for a short while. furnaces sometimes have limit switches that shut down the gas if the heat exchanger gets too hot. I would verify you have clean filters. and all registars open fully.
If the flames are not lighting verify gas valve is recieving the 24vlts. to open.
Also check ignition system it will be a piolet light or hot surface ignitor. you should be able to see both without much trouble. hs ignitor should get bright cherry red.
