Had my kereosene 90,000 btu heater running yesterday and shut it off.plugged it in today and all it does is spit raw fuel out the front.i take the spark plug out and try to ground it i can't see any spark...


ruppguy,

All the time.

You have a classic reddy heat problem. They use a system which sets the fuel pump pressure with bleed air. Comes out the back where there is a screw. If the pressure is not 4.5 psig the pump will pump too much or in your case too little fuel. This happens when the air filter plugs and changes the ratio. I have a tip at http://www.fixya.com/support/r4124129-yearly_maintenance_reddy_heaters which explains the problem, how to fix it and where to get the parts at the best price.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating. Please consider a testimonial. Thank you.

Check the fuel filter on the units as well as the inlet and outlet filters on the back of the motor.

Watch the nose cone and see if the end starts to loose the glowing orange color before it quits.
If the unit slowly looses the color then you have a fuel problem but if the unit just quits at full heat then you could have a electrical problem.

Typically the spark plugs on these heaters don't go bad.
