Reply with the correct model number. "Pro 155" designates a series. We need to know whether you have a heater with a spark plug or a heater with an ignitor (glowbar).

Why does our reddy heater pro155 keep turning off? Fuel is good but when burns a few gallons it shuts off within 15 seconds Where is fuel filter located?


More than likely, the nozzle (small hole where the fuel is sprayed) is clogged and needs to be replaced.

Reddy pro155 with a glowrod, need to know how to adjust air/fuel mixture. Worked fine till I messed with it and now I don't know how to put it back.


You need a pressure guage to connect to the port beside the one you used to adjust the mixture. The pressure you want is listed on the data label of the heater. A pressure guage with a range of 1-15psi is best.

Is R155D the same as PRO155 ? If so , fine .... Other than that I`m not sure what else you`d need to know !? It`s real old and needs a set of filters... It fires quickly ... sounds normal ... doesn`t run...


You wrote "Is R155D the same as PRO155 ?" Answer- Yes, The R155D is a pro 155, BUT so are many other 155's and not all use the same technology. The newer ones are computerized, the older ones are not.

Yours, the R155D is computerized and uses HSI (hot surface ignitor) technology.

Filters....part number PP214 (complete filter kit).

R55B Reddy Heater won't stay running. (PMS? menopause?)


Wow! Yours is the best description of a problem I have ever seen!!! Before I read the whole thing I figured you missed the pressure check as most people do but you nailed it. This is what I would try, Replace the air filter, the fuel filter, and the fuel (to make absolutely sure there is no water in the fuel) and readjust the fuel/air mixture. If that does not do it replace the cadmium cell they only cost pennies. Let me know how you make out and good luck.

PS, I have one of these so I am pretty familiar with the problems.

When filled with kerosene then plugged in, the heater will kick on for about 3 seconds and the fan will run but it will not ignite, then it shuts off. reddy heater 55, 55000btu. runs on K1 or fuel oil.

Was running fine, then shut off and smoked like out of fuel.


THERE ARE THREE OR FOUR REASONS FOR THIS. DIRTY FUEL FILTER, FUEL PRESSURE INCORRECT, DIRTY AIR AND LINT FILTER, THE ELECTRIC EYE THAT SEES THE FLAME IS BAD, OR THE CONTROL BOARD IS BAD. THESE ARE MANUFACTURED BY MESA OUT OF BOWLING GREEN, KY AND THEY HAVE A WEBSITE. I GOT MY NEW PARTS AT MY LOCAL RURAL KING STORE.

Reddy heater pro 110


My best guess is that you are are connecting to your AC receptacle with an extention cord that is too small. The Reddy Heater contains a computer that will shut the unit off if it cannot pull enough amps from your service. The longer the cord the higher the loss from receptacle to unit. This loss can be reduced by increasing the size of your extention cord. I run a 100' 10/2 cord.

Hope this helps!

A ? about watts my heater pulls


Look at the plate on the side and calculate Voltage (110 typically) times amps (what ever it says on the plate) gives you watts.
