You need about 6psi. I believe it is originally set at 7psi.

100,000 btu reddy heater runs but smokes alot and you can smell raw fuel what's wrong


It sounds like the fuel is contaminated,if it is not k 1 kerosene ,or grade A diesel fuel,this could be the problem,clean the tank,and start with a k 1 kerosene,and see if it clears up,then go back to the grade A diesel fuel,if this does not work,replace the filter in the tank,and check the intake air filter,make sure it is not cloded up,or behind the filter,last thing ,only after checking and doing all of this,the pump pressure may need adjusting,but do not try this with out a pressure gauge,and a manual .You can break the pump easy.I have a manual for the ready heater,just let me no if you need it,please rate,thank yopu,> roniecon@gmail.com

Nose not getting red just a little


You need to adjust air/fuel mixture. At the back of the heater there is a plastic slotted set screw. That is the air mixture adjustment screw. Turn it in clockwise a 1/4 turn at a time until the nose cone gets to be about 90% reddish orange. The heater should also burn cleaner. Hope this helps.

Got a 200,000 BTU that won't light. Replaced the rocker switch and igniter. Igniter glows and I can see the fuel going past the igniter, but it won't fire up.


You must start troubleshooting by setting the air pump pressure. Low pump pressure or air leak can cause the problem that you are experiencing. If you check the pressure and it's up to specs, then the nozzle may need replacing.

Ready Heater 200 BTU Kerosene


Try a part from a similar heater like Mr. Heater Most of the parts are identical they just mount a little different, put the new part on your old mount. Had a similar problem with my dyna glo and with a little rigging it works like new.

Air fuel mixture screw adjustment, forced air kerosene heater


Most ready heaters have a fuel pressure setting on the back of the heater near the fan. There should be two small plastic covers, looking directly at the back, the one on the left can be removed and a pressure gauge installed. The one on the right is slotted for adjustment of pressure. I think the correct pressure for that model is 3.0 lbs.
