This is the best that I could find. I believe that items like this are imported from China with no support stock of spare parts. In the old days, one could locate the manufacturer in the US and buy any individual part he wanted.
Before you buy a pump, check the filter cover for cracks. You can make a soap solution using dishwashing liquid and a little water to spray on the cover. Turn the heater on and look for bubbles coming out of the cover. Check the model # and go to www.desatech.com. Click on construction heaters and from the drop down menu click on your model #. You can get the part #'s from the manual. Go to www.partsfor.com and use the part #'s to order the parts you need.
You have a classic Reddy Heater problem. They use an air bleed system to control the fuel pump pressure. When you take the cover off you have changed the air pressure and more importantly the pump pressure. You have a partially clogged air filter and need to replace it and set the pump pressure. I have a tip at http://www.fixya.com/support/r4124129-yearly_maintenance_reddy_heaters which explains the problem and where to get the parts and how to complete the repair.
This is a very common reddy heater problem for this type of unit. They use an air bleeder system to determine the fuel pressure. There is an adjustment on the rear of the unit to vary the amount of air bled off. As the air filter clogs the pressure changes. It must be very close to 4.5 psig to work properly. You need a gauge to set it. I have a tip at http://www.fixya.com/support/r4124129-yearly_maintenance_reddy_heaters which explains the problem as well as where to get the replacement parts.
This is a classic reddy heater problem. They use the bleed air to determine the pump pressure and ultimately the mix of the air/fuel. Once the filter gets dirty the relationship changes and the unit gets too much fuel. The solution is to get a new filter and the pressure gauge necessary to set the pressure after installing the new filter.
the kerosine heater uses a spark plug for ignition and a photocell to detect flame. at the back end of the blower motor is an air compressor. it is a vane and diaphragm compressor that supposed to put out 3.6 psi of air to the fuel nozzle. the fuel nozzle is a venturi type that creates a vacuum across the orifice to suck fuel from the tank. try this site for spare parts www dot desatech dot com. its the same place I get parts for repairing heaters.
