Model R110 Does not ignite on startup

Have taken the cowl top cover off and observed the system on startup. The fan comes on but there is NO spark at the plug and NO ignition. What component may be bad and where do I get parts?

  1. be sure the transformer is grounded
  2. If 110v is going in but nothing going to the plug then order an Ignition Device #102482-01 keep them in stock

How do u bypass photo cell on r110 readyheater

The R110 is a heater using the older spark plug technology. In other words- no computer on board. This test will not work on heaters using the new Hot Surface technology.

Disclaimer- bypass the photocell for test purposes only. The photocell is there to prevent filling your shop with raw fuel in the event that there is a flameout.

To bypass connect a jumper wire between the 2 spades where the photocell normally connect.

Ready heater r110 I have replaced nozzle, filers all, cleaned sensor, runs some times for 30 sec shuts down

The R110 is a spark plug heater, as you know. It does not have the sophisticated electronics that the newer heaters have.

My guess: SP heater runs 30 seconds & shuts down- bypassphotocell. If it runs fine, then the photocell is defective.The test is simpleIf the photocell proves to be good follow these troubleshooting tips

I have same heater and problem-1) Check fuel inlet screens at bottom of hose in tank 2) Check air filters at fan module opposite end of the fan blade 3)Check for spark in ignition chamber 4) Check for fuel flow in ignition chamber (look at pressure gauge at opposite end from air exit) You'll have to remove the top cover to do these checks. The side covers will hang on each side ok. I hope these checks help you out.Good luck.

I have a Reddy Heater Model R110. It has operated great until it ran out of fuel. I filled it up and now it will not ignite. It is pumping fuel as fuel is running out the front of it. I cannot find my...

remove the cover and check for spark at plug when plugged in if no spark check spark plug gor proper gap, or defective transformer electronic ignitor if you see spark check for proper pump pressure and restricted fuel flow due to seal leak, filter blocked and restriction in nozzle. I would check for defective photocell first for soot/dirt if dirty wipe with clean damp cloth remove photocell from heater and connect ohmeter on the 1000 ohl (rx1k) scale. Hold the lens up to a light source (60 wtt bulb, with the lens of the photocell pointed towards the source the resistance of the meter should be low by clocking off the light source by putting thumb over opening of cell the resistance on meter should be high, replace photo cell if a change in resistance is not observed during this test, let me know if you need more assistance

My reedy heater pro 110 blows fuel out the front but does not ignite and then shuts down

The Pro 110 comes in 2 different technologies. The true model (examples: R110, RHD110T, etc) designates which technology your heater has. Rather than ask for clarification I am posting links to Troubleshooting Tips for BOTH types. You must investigate to see if your heater is the Spark Plug technology or the HSI (glowbar) technology.

Troubleshooting greatly differs between the 2 types.

Take reading on the air pump. Is sounds like the pressure is low, therefore not sucking fuel. It's a place to start, anyway.

GMT 115-5B wont ignite

couple things without more info is little hard,,,first not familliar with this paticular model but I believe it has a glo igniter,,which will be located next to the burners,,should be one or two scres holding it in,if this is not glowing than u need to pulll it out and look for a crack in it if its cracked u need to replace. If this is electronic ignition will have a metal spark ignition,,the glow ignitor will be ceramic by the way,,also if u pull out the glow ignitor do not touch the element with your hands while inspecting or replacing for the oil on your hands will cause it to fail sooner. sorry back to the metal spark ignition if it is not sparking than chances are u have a problem with the combustion fan motor shutting down the gas valve before it lights. I just posted on a goodman about the fan motor and the two types and how to fix. good luck.
