Question about Reddy Heater-70,000 BTU Kerosene w/T'stat
My 60,000 btu forced air HSI technology heater. When i plug it in, the unit tries to start for about 5-10 seconds then shuts off. I wait a couple minutes then try again, same thing and also see some fuel coming out the end (like it is pumping fuel but not firing). If i repeat about 10 times it eventually fires up but then shoots flames out the end as it burns the excess fuel that has accumulated and smokes a lot for a few minutes or so then burns cleaner. I am running diesel fuel and it is about 25 degrees where it is being started. I was going to clean or replace all air filters, blow out fuel filter, re assemble then check fuel pressure. Would this be the right course of action? Should I also replace fuel nozzle?
Sounds like the ignitor is bad, mine would try to light and do the same thing. I noticed one night that it was arcing out the entire length of the wires to the plug. If you have a good spark then i would suggest a CAD flame sensor, very cheap.
