First CARBON MONOXIDE WILL KILL YOU

#2 fuel is too dirty, use #1 or clear K-1.

I have found when running mine in any confined space like a garage, it will consume too much oxygen if not vented. It might run till it draws down the oxygen level. You start at 21% and draw down the oxygen to 14% that is where mine kicks out.

Clean out the filter, flush the tank, put in clean K-1, You might need to replace the igniter. Check your fuel line pressue (mine was 4 psi).
Good Luck

Ready Heater 60 wont start. Fan runs for about 5 seconds and then stops.


Check the wires for good connections. If the connections are good, then check the adjustment for the ignitor (sparker or glowplug).

Similar heaters that use diesel have to routinely cope with the dye added to untaxed fuel, ditto similar heaters that use both fuels. Unless there was an excess of dye in the fuel you used the problem was probably a coincidence.

Dirt can be a big problem due to corrosion forming in the fuel tank caused by a relatively large percentage of moisture naturally in the fuel and the formation of condensation. Fuel is generally filtered through a fine gauze when the tank is filled but there is little or no filtration preventing dirt already in the tank from being picked up and finding a way into the spray head which generally jams the spinner affecting the quality of the fuel spray.

Cleaning the spinner and nozzle might work for a while but only a major clean out will restore reliability until the next time. It is also wise to check and adjust the pressure of the air pump.

Reset button keeps popping and the time between becomes shorter.


check the photo eye. It's the little rubber boot on the bottom right on the back side of the burner. If it's dirty, it may not be shutting off the igniter. If the igniter runs continuously, the safety breaker will trip.
