Question about Reddy Heater-40,000 BTU Kerosene w/T'stat

1 Answer

Seems that my R-40 is not pumping fuel

I have cleaned everything, tank, filters etc... I have been using #2 deisel and it quit after 2 months of use. had the cover off and watch it start. the igniter lights up and by the time the fan/pump comes on there is a delay in when the fuel starts coming out of the nozzle, by that time the igniter goes out and it shuts down. its seems to me that it is not getting fuel soon enough to keep it running. I can set my aircompressor at 3 psi and apply air to the nozzle thru the line off the pump and it will start. I feel its not pumping enough air to the nozzle to pick up the fuel soon enough, whats the fix?

You must set the pressure! If the heater runs with your compressor connected, but won't when the pressure is disconnected, well.......

Setting the pressure is easy!

I have Reddy Heater 155 Pro. I fired up yesterday for the first time in months. I put in fuel, but this morning It sparks to fire, but will not light. but it appears to have fuel blowing out. It will not...


This morning I had an identical problem with a new heater, the culprit ended up being the fuel tank had water down inside it. Condensation causes this when you store them. I ended up draining it in to a five gallon bucket and then watched the water separate and go to the bottom of the bucket. Needless to say cleaning out the tank was real fun, after draining it I stuffed rags down in the tank to **** up the water, siphoned off the fuel from the water with an electric pump and filled the heater up now it is working fine. Remove the top cover and check the burning tray over real good, I would clean the flame sensor with windex and soft terry cloth rag. Then pull some preventative maintenance, locate the nozzle, remove it, nwo they say that you can not clean these but I say with a q-tip, carb cleaner,and a tooth pick you can with out damaging the nozzle. Directly behind the nozzle is a screen clean this as well, now put it back together. Inspect all fuel lines for holes, dry rot and cracks, if all is good move on to the side cover where the fuel line goes thru to the fuel tank. Remove it and locate the fuel line and filter, remove the filter and clean with compressed air and a blow gun, blowing air backwards thru the filter, instantly clean. Now put it back together and inspect lines again. On the back of the fuel pump is a foam filter for air intake remove it and clean with dish soap and water, be sure to dry really good then put it back and button your heater back up. Now you are ready for testing and happy heating.

I have a 55,000 BTU Reddy Heater that runs on K-1 Kerosene. I used it several weeks ago and it seemed to stik far more than usual. I tried to used it yesterday and now it seems to come on for a second...


Water in the fuel tank, I personally had this problem this morning irritating but was simple to cure. Empty your fuel in to a clean five gallon bucket and observe, fuel is lighter than water and will float on top water settles to the bottom. You now have to dry out the tank, get creative I stuffed mine with rags and sopped it all up, this worked fine for me. You can siphon off the fuel from the water and re-use the fuel. Just be careful not to siphon off the water with it.

Toyo Laser 56 EE2 message--no flame? valves open and clean filter


You might of got type 2 fuel oil. If it is a smaller tank sometimes the fueler doesn't clear the line before filling and you'll slug down some type2 which will snuff the flame.
Check to see if the filler kinked a line outside while filling.
Just an Idea...

Clicks but wont fire


make sure the high voltage lead to the sparkplug isn't touching anything metal on its way to the plug. the clicking may be the high voltage discharging to a metal part, not the plug. those wires age during use.
