Re: I have a reddy 115k kero unit, i push the start...
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.

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.

unit needs photo cell,or cell is dirty.to check photo cell disconnect the two blue wires from reset switch nad put a wire between where the blue wires were connected.that takes the photo cell out of system.fire unit up.if it stays running photo cell is bad,change it and all will be right again
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.
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.
