Question about Reddy Heater-40,000 BTU Kerosene w/T'stat
I have a M50S 50,000 btu heater on kerosene, had a buddy throw it away because it did this, thought I scored but don't know now. He had diesel fuel in it, but I changed that and put kerosene in it. Looks like it should work, had cover off, igniter sparking, flame inside, end doesn't glow though, blows cold air and smoke. I am a mechanic by trade, thinking, wouldn't have smoke if fuel wasn't getting there, wouldn't have flame inside if igniter wasn't working, really need it going right now, girlfriends car wouldn't start this morning-------OH BOY can you please help me????????
The deisel fuel hogged it up. Clean everything out and replace the wick. Deisel fuel is filthy to burn and it needs a lot of airflow.
