Heater lights but burns 5 or 10 seconds then goes out sounds like fuel to me.I burn Diesel fuel in it


Maybe there is a sensor that determines if the fuel is burning. If that sensor fails, the fuel may shut off after a few seconds if that sensor fails to detect the heat properly. Some kind of safety device to prevent fuel dumping if it stops burning, perhaps.

How do u convert from kerosene to diesel


there may be possible ways out there to do the conversion but it may put you and your loved ones in jeopardy. kerosene and diesel fuel have different thermal characteristic during the burning process so the heater designed to run on kerosene may not be capable of handling the burning characteristics of diesel fuel.This may lead to unwanted fire incidents and loss of lives. Best is to purchase heater made for diesel fuel.

Sounds like there might be some water in the fuel?
Take a strong flashlight, and shine it into the tank-- does it look dirty?-- can you see water on the bottom? Try draining and cleaning the tank, and make sure the suction filter is clean-- and in tact.
And yo are using kerosene-- not diesel fuel, right?

70,000 btu reddy heater, starts right up but smells bad.Instaled new filters , fuel and igniter low hours 100 or so. disassembled tip everything looked perfect.nosecone turns orange from bottom up and...


I hope you are burning K1 kerosene as opposed to off road diesel. Diesel stinks no matter what you do to the heater. A couple things that have happened to me are, fuel selection K1 is it, when storing for the end of the season old fuel can cause water from condensation to build in the tank. When water is in the tank you get ignition and it burns just not hot enough to burn the fuel completely, this causes the heavy odor. Old fuel will do the same it is as if the fuel thickens to an oily state and becomes heavier. It just does not burn hot enough to get rid of the odor. You can try increasing pump pressure this changes air fuel mixture and you may get rid of the odor somewhat.

My heater is a reddy heater 165,000btu. when i plug it up it will ignite, it will get a flame for about ten seconds and it shutdown. i recently replaced the ignitor because it broke and replace the fuel...


I would definitely stop burning off road diesel as it is dirty.Remove the top section of the heater and clean the fire eye with windex and a terry cloth rag, and run K1 kerosene it burns so much cleaner. Also make sure that fuel is not an issuecheck fuel filter,fuel lines and don't forget the screen in behind the nozzle.

Can you use diesel instead of kerosene in ready heaters?


No - diesel fuel is NOT the same as kerosene. Kerosene is #1, regular diesel is #2. They are not interchangeable.

Can you burn diesel fuel


Hi, If this heater is the Reddy 170,000 b.t.u. heater, model # 170t professional series, then yes you can.It is a multi-fuel heater. Fuels it can use are Kerosene, JP8, Jet A fuel, 1&2 Diesel fuel, and 1&2 fuel oil. It must be this model 170T.
Sincerely,

I have a portable forced air heater Model R55A heater size 55,000/Hr can I use diesel fuel instead of kerosene?


You can, but prolonged use of diesel fuel will burn out the cone faster. Too hot. And it stinks alot worse than kerosene.

Mr Heater MH75KT - won't start with diesel


If the MH75KT is the correct model, then it is a Kerosene only heater. Fuels, like oil and diesel all have different ignition points.
