SOURCE: my reddy heater 70,000 btu.

Assuming the "electronic safety shutdown system" is operating properly, the system is shutting the heater down becausr the control board/photocell don't like what is being seen inside the combustion chamber. That is what they are supposed to do if there is water, trash, an air leak, a vacuum leak, a broken ignitor, a worn nozzle, etc.

Your job, as the troubleshooter, is to find out why the flame is not correct. Read the tips below:

Good luck!

I'm looking for parts for Dyna-Glo Rmc8000. I need a gas line and a thermocouple any help


The therm can be bought at a applience repair shop. It does not have to be exact to work. Gass lines can be found at the same place and an auto store has pipe. Another option is getting a barbuce repair kit for the hoses if they are the same size

I Have an old M30 REDDY HEATER, It won't start, Good Spark, Good Fan, Clean fuel, Pump has some pressure- I have no-idea on how much is needed, Not sure about the in-out of fuel lines to the Main Jet...


The line from the pump to the nozzel should go inthe front fitting and the one from the tank goes to the backfitting. If either of these have cracks in them or do not fit tightly over the fittings it will not build enough pressure and burn. You may also check the filters mainly the output filter as this will also effect pump pressure. I don't have as much experiance with that brand so I can't be sure exactly about the pressure. I think it should be 3.5 to 4 Psi. If this doesn't help please email me and I will find out for sure.

Hooking up a pool heater to propane.


A pressure regulator and pipe or hose. Whoever is selling you the tank/propane should be able to help you size everything based on the tank hook-up and tank pressure. The heater nameplate will tell you the proper inlet gas pressure that the regulator will need to reduce the tank pressure to.

Bissell power steamer - upright deep cleaner - Does not **** water


If this unit has an onboard heater ( a little red lite in the center of the handle) then most likley it is the problem. You see the heater which is located inside the large portion of the handle has a very small passage that snakes its way throught and heats the water as it passes. The problem is that the water and soap are mixed before the heater which is very very hot and when you turn the unit off and the solution stops moving and hardens in that little passage while the heater cools. To fix this you have to take the handle appart allong with the heater and clean it out. To prevent this in the future make sure to turn the heater off and run just clean water through the unit before you put it away. This unit also has a belt that runs the pump check to see if the belt is in good shape it could be stretched but not broken I would suggest replacing it anyway just to be sure. You can buy the belt allong with other parts for this machine at www.stevessewandvac.com
