Question about Reddy Heater-30-55,000 BTU Variable

1 Answer

No heat, just smoke, flame inside,

I have a M50S Ready Heater, it is on kerosene, just ignites inside but flame does'nt go to the end of the tube and make the cap glow. Just smokes and acts like its working, but just blows cold air and smoke.

My ready heater 100,000 will run for app. 5hrs then flame out and blow smoke or unburned fuel the same several times pressure is right


If the heater continuously has a 5 hour run-time check to see if the fuel pickup tube goes to the bottom of the tank. If broken, cracked, or shortened the fuel will stop being picked up when air is sucked rather than fuel.

Runs a few minutes and quits


hi this could be 3 problems ? no spark so vapour not igniting so excess vapour coming out as smoke, if it ignites stays on for a while goes out the flame probe is faulty, fuel filter is blocked needs new one , the fuel pipe going into tank has a non return vavle in it ( its a plastic ball in line with pipe ) if this is missing or stuck it allows fuel to drain back into tank and causes a air lock in heater causing vapour into chamber result in smoke coming out of end, as a quick fix for that you can fill pipe with fuel bend it so its traps in fuel like fire place pipe in tank when stopping fire stick mole gripps on pipe so next time fuel is there ready

Won't ignite and fill the entire tube with flame, cold air, smoke


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.

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.

30,000 btu kerosene ready heater


check pressure of the air compressor should be in the 3.0 to 3.5 range. not enough won't suck fuel, too much will blow out the flame. igniter either lights or it doesn't no in between. does the main flame come on?
