If it trys to start when you turn the thermostate then thats not the problem, it has to be either the high heat limit control or the flame sensor. Mine did the same thing and I also thought the eye was working but as soon as I changed it the problem was solved. Pretty much all flame sensors are the same and you can get one from Mr. Heater for less than 3 bucks, same with the limit control.

The heater will run for about 10 to 20 seconds an stop shut off


By design, the heater's control board will shut down if the photocell does not see the color of flame that it requires. In other words, if it's running a tad rich or lean there will be a shutdown. Many things can cause this. It could be bad fuel, water in the fuel, air pump pressure not correct, or defective electronics. Read these troubleshooting tips.Then take action. Setting the pressure is simple, but some folks they can skip this part. Not so. This is the place to start if a fuel delivery problem is suspected.

check and see if the heater has a high temperature limit switch. if it does it will shut the machine off until it cools down.. just replace it with a new one.

I have an All-Pro K175 100,000 BTU heater that starts and runs for about 30 seconds to a min, and then shuts down after throwing the reset switch. Will the problem be in the Hi-Low switch or the eye...


This is a classic problem with these style heaters. This is not a Reddy Heater but most parts are the same. I have a tip at http://www.fixya.com/support/r4124129-yearly_maintenance_reddy_heaters which explains the problem, the solution and where to get the parts. Let me know if you need more help.
