Question about Reddy R155D Utility Heater

1 Answer

Master Reddy 30,000 btu heater put out nasty fumes.

I have adjusted the air pump pressure anywhere from 2 psi to 3 psi range and it runs fine until I install the top sheet metal back on it then it puts out fumes so bad you can't stand it for it burns your eyes so bad. I have cleaned the fuel filter screen and nothing was in it. I took the rotar and blades out to relace them but they were like new so I blew everything out with compressed air a put it back together and does the same thing. I took the nozzle out blew it with compressed air and found nothing wrong ,it was perfectly clean, along with both fuel line and air hoses. Spark plug is gapped at .055 " where as a sticker on inside of heater reads range is .055" -.060".No mater where I adjust the air pressure ,it runs fine until I install the top sheet metal cover.Can anybody help me with this problem? Thanks..

    Thanks for the help. I installed a new air line, it still did the same thing, after putting on the cover it put out the same fumes so bad it would burn your eyes.Then I cranked the air pressure up to 4 P.S.I. and it cleared right up and has been working A-OK ever since. Thanks for the help...Its nice having a web site on repairing things yourself without haveing a fee to get an answer,Maybe someday I can help someone out by returning the faver.Thanks again ,Randy

Sounds like it's not getting enough air to fuel mix, check your air inlet line for breaks or just put a new one on for a couple bucks. any fuel line thats the right diameter will work, got mine from auto zone.
