Check your air lines that go to the burner nozzle for any breaks and clean all of the filters.

Why does my Kozy World natural gas wall heater set off fire alarm system?


Most new heaters give off a smell or some light smoke which needs to be burnt off the first time it is used it may smoke , this may be why your alarm is going off , run it with a window open to remove smell etc .

You've done all the right things so far. I would recommend the you go to the following link. Look up your model number and download the Owners Manual and consult the Trouble Shooting Guide. But, I suspect, it may be bad fuel. None the less, consult the Owners Manual.

My heater is a.pro 155 it worked fine all last year but I got it out of my storage area for use this winter. It will start an run for about 15 seconds and trips the reset on the unit. What would make this...


First, locate the true model of the heater. Pro 155 only designates a series of heaters. It does not designate the actual model or technology used.

The reset (Safety Device) is the system's safety shut off. If everything is in perfect operating form the photocell looks into the chamber for a flame. If the flame goes out (flame-out), the the photocell sends a signal to the reset and the heater shuts down.

You must troubleshoot to find out whether your problem is a fuel delivery problem or an electronics problem.

My first look would be to look into the eye of the photocell for an insect or nest of some sort. Next check the fuel tank for water or debris that may be restricting the fuel flow and causing a flame-out.

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

THE HEATER STARTS THEB BLOWS ALOT OF SMOKE


There are any number possibilities for intermittent running.
1. Bad ground connection at the Ignition Device (transformer, spark box)
2. restricted fuel filter causing fuel starvation
3. crack in the plastic end cover
4. crack in the airline
5. crack in the fuel line
6. crack in the nozzle adapter
7. water in the fuel
8. Others I’m sure I left out

You must be the one to troubleshoot & find the cause.
