Try replaceing your fuel line, it only takes a tiny crack or hole to lose pressure, also try cleaning all of your fiters. it's a cheap fix and if it does'nt work your only out a couple bucks. Then you need to pressure test and make sure you have sufficient pressure. You can use any fuel line, I got mine from auto zone, just make sure it's the right diameter.

My Reddy Heater 115 motor is good but it will not turn the pump unless you warm up the heater and spray some oil inside the air pump. It seems the air pump is hard to turn. What do you think?


Does the air pump have bearings that could be siezing? The air pump could also be dirty since spraying oil seems to help. Try to clean it out if you can.

What did you set the air pump pressure at? This is critical on heaters with Hot Surface Technology. Setting the pump pressure is always the FIRST place to start troubleshooting on these heaters.

Here are some things that can prevent ignition even though there is fuel & glow:
  1. wrong air pump pressure
  2. the nozzle is restricted & distorted not allowing fuel to contact the glowing ignitor
  3. the nozzle is worn. It should produce a cone of fog, not a spray.
  4. there is water in the tank below the fuel.
