Reddy Heater teasing me:)


sound like there is dirt and stuff in the fuel tank.when the heater fires up it pulls this stuff up into the filter.as it runs it plugs the filter off causing the heater to shut off.whe it shuts off the garbage falls back into the tank.when you refire the heater it pulls the garbage back up again.it never pulls it up the same so the time verys every time

THE HEATER STARTS THEB BLOWS ALOT OF SMOKE


There are any number possibilities for intermittent running.
1. Bad ground connection at the Ignition Device (transformer, spark box)
2. restricted fuel filter causing fuel starvation
3. crack in the plastic end cover
4. crack in the airline
5. crack in the fuel line
6. crack in the nozzle adapter
7. water in the fuel
8. Others I’m sure I left out

You must be the one to troubleshoot & find the cause.
