    Desa Thirty-Five Heater that will not pump fuel to the nozzle. I have cleaned the nozzle and replaced all fuel & air lines. I have also tried to adjust the [ump pressure and have had no luck getting it to pump fuel. What may be the problem? Any suggestions and or help will be appreciated.

First thing I would do is clean all of your air and fuel filters and check your lines for breaks. A lot of times they will do that if your not getting enough air to fuel mix. If it continues after that it's the CAD/ flame sensor which you can get from MR. Heater for 3 bucks they are all basically the same and I know reddy heater wants 18 for the same thing.

    when it turns on is it blowing raw fuel out the front? If not the fuel line is bad, one tiny crack is all it takes.

    I would replace the air and fuel lines. you can get them really cheap at auto zone or someplace similar for a lot less than ordering actual replacement parts. before you hook the fuel line back onto the tank try blowing through it to see if the fuel nozzle is plugged. also wouldn't hurt to clean the fiters on the back of the motor and the fuel filter inside the tank where the fuel line connects. let me know how that works for you, it's really routine maint. I always like to try the simple fix before getting into bigger problems. good luck. Ira

    I would go to or call 1-800-251-0001 and order a pressure gage, it sounds like all you need to do is adjust the fuel pressure. since you got it used chances are someone else has tried to do some adjusting. the best bet is to call and ask one of the tech. guys what the correct pressure should be, I believe it's about 4 psi. but i'm not absolutely sure. the adjustment screw is on the back of the motor. good luck.

Reddy heater won't stay on

sounds like a Thermal Cut-off this is a small sensor that detects if the heater has ignited properly, sounds like this sensor has failed and the heater shuts off to prevent from gassing anyone
