Either the high heat limit control or the flame sensor, I would guess the flame sensor

My kerosene 50,000 btu reddy heater fires up for about five seconds and then shuts off. I put no. 1 kerosene in so it burns cleaner. It's 2/3s full. the drywallers used it last so it's a little dusty. ...


There is a sensor inside that tells the heater that the flame is lit...if it doesn't "see" the flame it will shut down...this may be caused by the filter in the rear being clogged and it is not allowing the pump to produce enough pressure to ensure a good flame or the pump inside may have sucked up some debris and is now not producing the proper pressure required. Another possibility is that there may be enough dust on the sensor itself to cause it to not "see" the flame...if you take the cover off you can find this sensor...it will have 2 wires coming off of it and it looks like a photocell...it should be located just in front of the jet where the fuel comes out...a word of caution...the ignitor(and the spark plug looking thing) have very high voltage on them(around 5000Volts) so I would avoid touching these parts while in operation.

Hi I have a Coleman furnace that has the electronic ignition model # G9to601oupb13c that will come on for about 3 seconds then shuts down if i turn off the power and restart it willl come back on and then...


If you mean hot surface ignition and not spark then look in front of the far burner from the glow plug and clean the rod in front of the burner with a piece of steel wool, the rod is probably dirty and can not sense the flame, so the gas shuts off.

Won't light/stay on


It may be the spark plug (or the ignition module). On my Reddy Heater 50K BTU, there are six metal screws that join the top of torpedo tube to the bottom. Remove these,and the top of the tube casing. The spark plug should be in plain sight.

Turn the unit on and look for spark. If it's not firing, replace the plug. If it still doesn't fire, you may need to replace the ignition module (it's what is "connected to the spark plug via the fat ignition wire.")

Hope this helps,

Htr shuts off after awhile and won't come back on till it's cooled down


I had the same problem with my heater. It was a cracked fuel line. I replaced the rubber hoses. On mine there was a pick up hose and a feed hose. They were dry cracked. Works great now. Hope that helps you out.
