1st check to see if you have spark, 2nd check the pump pressure using the correct pressure gauge, the pressure should be 5.1 psi for model 115. if little or no pressure you may have a air line leak or a defective rotor. if you do have pressure you may have a plugged nozzle. i hope this helps.

My reddy heater 115 pro starts, but shuts off after about 5 seconds of running , i replaced the filters and nozzle about 2 years ago


Here is a service manual:

http://www.desaparts.com/service_manuals.html

If the flames actually starts but the unit shuts off after 5 seconds you need to check the pump cover on your heater to make sure you have no cracks in the rear cover.
This could be from low pump pressure but most often this problem is caused from a defective control board.

Heater will come on for about 4 seconds then shut off. I have a 115 BTU kerosene Reddy Heater.


Removed filter and blew out a tiny piece of debris. Didnt think that would be enough to do any harm. Put the filter back in and it started up and runs great now.

Reddy heater 115 just turns on then shuts off


a new flame sensor is in order, if you have spark and it blows fuel then thats the answer. you can get one thet will fit from Mr. Heater for 3 bucks. the wires are different so just splice the to your old wire harness, there is no wrong way to hook them up.

Igniter lites up fan kicks on and within 5 sec shuts off


Dustin, The ignitor only glows for 5 seconds, just long enough to ignite the fuel. The heater is shutting down because the photocell does not see the correct flame color.
Since you say "comes on for 5 seconds", I can only assume that there is a flame. You do not specify a lack of flame. I am also assuming that you have had the heater running this heater season and the problem just started.

YOU must find out if the problem is fuel delivery related or electronics related. Start by checking the pump pressure.
