Not much to check. The element comes out and makes a square loop back to the ceramic portion. This element is extremely brittle and will break if touched or wiped off.

You can check the 2 wires with a voltage tester set on continuity. The needle should swap sides if the ignitor is intact. I don't ever remember an ignitor failing, except for breakage.

View this page. Be sure you get the correct ignitor. 2 different ones have been used on the RH125T.

125btu reddy heater, somene mixed some gas in the heater and now it won't ignite. how to fix??


Drain it clean it out real good clean out the fuel system end to end. From the line in to the tank thru the filter and so on remove the nozzle clean the screen and nozzle put it all back together. with the top section removed try to start the heater. You should have a fine mist of fuel and spark if it lights shut it down and clean the photo electric eye with a soft cloth and windex. make sure the igniter is clean and close to the fuel mist for ignition, put the top on and turn on your heater.

Reddy heater has problem staying on


Check the foam filters located in the back, their is also a primary air adjustment slot in the back try adjusting that each time you fire it to see if you can get it to stay on.

Can you see the fuel oil coming out of the nossle? If
not clean it. If it has a cad cell that could be bad or dirty, you might have to bypass it to see if that is the
problem.

RH125T won't fire


If you blew compressed air into the combustion chamber from the nozzle end of the heater there is a good chance that you broke the ignitor. Check it.
