I have a reddyheater 125T yr. 2006 hsi multifuel unit. It will light but after a few minutes it will shut off. I have cleaned the photocell and filters. But the heater still has the same problem. please...

Have you checked the pump pressure? The HSI heaters are super temperamental, by design, to correct pump pressure and correct flame color. Depending on usage over a winter the nozzle could be worn to a point where the fuel cone is a spray rather than a fog, therefore the flame is burning rich (off-color) and the photocell shuts the unit down.

You are wasting your time if you don't check the pump pressure 1st!

All pro heater runs for a couple of minutes.then

it only shuts down because of an overheating condition or the lack of fuel. if you have an ohm or multimeter, check the ohms on the fan and see if you have any resistance. If you do the fan is good but may still not be putting enough air across the heat exchanger to safely alloww the heater to run without causing a fire.

Flame light flashes after unit runs for awhile.

Check for spark and clean your plug. If you have good spark it's one of two things, the high heat limit control or the flame sensor, my guess would be the flame sensor.
