Have you cleaned the air inlets? I have a older (1970's) reddy heater, occasionally it starts getting smokey or not firing at all. I open up where the air filter is and clean out the chamber with carb cleaner; gets the old girl firing up nice again.

I have a Reddy Heater 70,000BTU without a thermostat. It will flare off and within a few seconds the fire goes out and then the it trips out. After a few tries it won't even flare off. What might be wrong?


hello. Your reddy heater is dirty and needs a good cleaning. Also, here are a few other possible reasons why it won't operate properly. Pressure not adjusted to 5.1 psi, dirty outlet filter, clogged inlet filter, bad or dirty photo cell, defective reset switch, pump going bad, dirty injector nozzle, dirty fuel filter, contaminated fuel. Check yours out and do what you can to address each area of concern. Regards, Joe

What will happen if I burn a diesel/ gas mix in a reddy heater 55000 multi fuel heater?


Hi, If the heater recommends kerosene or diesel only, and you mix gas into the situation, you will get an explosion and fire loosing not only the heater but most everything else.Unless the spec's say you can since it will use other fuels, gas would be one I would not use, mixed or not, like I say only if it says you can. At 70,000 B.T.U.s, as it says above, this Reddy heater burns hot anyway, and I don't want to put you in a dangerous situation by saying yes, go right ahead? So please check first, I would say no way. Good Luck, and Sincerely, Shastalaker7

The igniter is most likely bad.Make sure the igniter is not working,and the pump for the fuel is working,one,or the other is not working,if it is the fuel,order a new pump kit,with impelar,and if it is the igniter,replace it with a new one.
