Check for spark first, if you have good spark it is the flame sensor, you can get one that will fit from Mr. Heater. the wires are different but they all work the same, just splice it to your old wires. there is no wrong way to hook it up.

Does not ignite


alcy 04,

I'm just guessing but your unit tries to start, blows some fuel, then shuts down. This is a common problem with Reddy heaters. I have a tip at http://www.fixya.com/support/r4124129-yearly_maintenance_reddy_heaters which will solve your problem and get you the parts at the best price.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.

CAN I PUT DIESEL IN MY KERO REDDY HEATER 150,000 BTU HEATER AND WILL IT SMELL OR RUIN IT


since the combustion temp of diesel is different from KERO, expect the heater to shut down from overheating at times.
since it will probably heat up faster than on KERO.

Will not ignite after replacing air filters


Hi,
Clearly a problem with the new filter.

Does it have a check valve built in?

Try to get a flow through it without the nozzle attatched - and often there is a small sintered filter attatched behind the nozzle anyway. take off nozzle and try priming (without igniting obviously).

Could be air in there so needs priming. Often heaters shut down if air is present - so need to be bled of air. If you can pre-fill the filter, or bleed air at a joint just after the filter - this usually works.

Please rate at Fixya if this solves the problem. - It is free, and I improve my score if you do.
Thank you.

My best guess is that you are are connecting to your AC receptacle with an extention cord that is too small. The Reddy Heater contains a computer that will shut the unit off if it cannot pull enough amps from your service. The longer the cord the higher the loss from receptacle to unit. This loss can be reduced by increasing the size of your extention cord. I run a 100' 10/2 cord.

Hope this helps!

Reddy heat/scheu kerosene space heater no ignition


Typical kero heater uses either a spark ignition or a hot surface. The hot surface igniter is very fragile. A small bump may break the elements. Flame is detected by a photocell, signal is sent to the lockout relay board. Change the igniter costs about 50 bucks.

sounds like a Thermal Cut-off this is a small sensor that detects if the heater has ignited properly, sounds like this sensor has failed and the heater shuts off to prevent from gassing anyone

Reddy Heater keeps shutting down


check your cad cell. replace this. it is not detecting a flame. replacing the cad cell will fix your problem. when it shuts down it goes into lockout.
