SOURCE: my kerosene 50,000 btu reddy heater fires up for

There is a sensor inside that tells the heater that the flame is lit...if it doesn't "see" the flame it will shut down...this may be caused by the filter in the rear being clogged and it is not allowing the pump to produce enough pressure to ensure a good flame or the pump inside may have sucked up some debris and is now not producing the proper pressure required. Another possibility is that there may be enough dust on the sensor itself to cause it to not "see" the flame...if you take the cover off you can find this sensor...it will have 2 wires coming off of it and it looks like a photocell...it should be located just in front of the jet where the fuel comes out...a word of caution...the ignitor(and the spark plug looking thing) have very high voltage on them(around 5000Volts) so I would avoid touching these parts while in operation.

Trys to start. Motor turns slowly (revolution in 2-3 seconds).


Either:
  1. the reset (safety control) is bad
  2. the photocell is defective
  3. both of the above
