Question about Reddy HEATER R115 115,000-BTU PORTABLE KEROSENE FORCED AIR HEATER
After being plugged in, the heater hums as though it wants to start, but after a few seconds it stops. This happened suddenly. It was working fine the day before.
Thanks for your question,
Sounds to me like you have a faulty fan in the unit, could be stuck, or might be a bad fan motor, try unplugging it first, find something to insert where the fan is and try spinning the blade, if its stuck or has alot of resistance, then you have a bad motor, if its free spinning, then try plugging it back in and see if it works, sometimes just by manually moving the motor shaft it frees it to work, if it still doesnt work, then you might look at replacing the fan motor, or replacing the unit, hope this helps ya,
