Check your fuel lines and most models have a fuel filter in line. A few things come to mind one how old is the fuel? Check the screen in the nozzle assembly by removing nozzle it sits directly behind the nozzle, these corrode and affect fuel flow. While you have this tore down clean the fire-eye with windex and terry cloth rag, it may not be seeing the flame. Check the air filter at the back of the heater as well. These are common problems with these heaters.

I have a 150,000 BTU NATURAL GAS HEATER. IT WILL RUN FOR 10 SECONDS AND QUITS. IT WILL NOT IGNITE AGAIN UNLESS YOU SHUT IT OFF AND RESTART


Hi,
The heater is not proving the flame...and shutting down on safety...
Check the flame sensor and all connections of the ground from the burner to the ignition control...
The control may also be bad...

they sell that brand and have their own repair help techs.

150,000 BTU propane Reddy Heater shuts off after ignition


Is there a frost line on your LP tank, if so you may need to replace the tank with a larger tank or refill your tank. This can happen if the tank your using is too low or too small (use 100 lb tank or greater). If there is no frost line it may be an issue with the thermocouple. The manufacturer offers a service manual and owner's manuals on there site. This should assist you... www.desatech.com Thank you

Torpedo Reedy heater 150,000 BTU starts & fires but after 2-3 minutes of heating , it shuts down, after it is off for about 3 minutes it will start & fires but then shuts down , each time it shuts...


There is a flame sensor inside the burner unit. The sensor is like a photo cell that must see the light of the flame or it will tell the burner control to stop the power. You need to see if there is a soot film on the lense of the sensor and make sure the sensor is aimed straight. If the sensor is clean and aimed straight (and the problem persists) then there may be a clogged nozzle that is giving a poor flame and the sensor does not see a good flame therefore shuts down the unit. If the nozzle is at fault, then you for sure need to replace the oil filter. New nozzles are $4-8 and the size & spray angle is stamped on the nozzle. If there is still a problem, then you need to see if the pump is giving approx. 100psi pressure, then finally (the last step) would be to replace the burner control $60. Goodluck< Macgivor

Will not fire with cover attached


Bend brackit on photo eye so that it gets a better view of the flame. When cover is on the flame will move farther to the end of the heater. You can test this by holding the eye in your hand and pointing it at the flame. I had the same problem. Hope this helps.

Have john deere 50 kerosene space heater has fuel,new plug,


if it trys to start when you turn the thermostate then thats not the problem, it has to be either the high heat limit control or the flame sensor. Mine did the same thing and I also thought the eye was working but as soon as I changed it the problem was solved. Pretty much all flame sensors are the same and you can get one from Mr. Heater for less than 3 bucks, same with the limit control.
