Question about Reddy Heater-170,000 BTU Kerosene Deluxe

2 Answers

No fire I used it once and put it back in the box. It has been setting up for maybe 5 years. I'm guite sure I used Diesel in it the only time i used it. I dont suppose I cleaned it. The fan comes on. It has fire at the spark plug. The fire will not ignite, and as a result it seems to trip a reset switch. I shut it off and back on only to go through the same thing. i have a 170k btu kerosene heater by reddyheater.when i start it comes on for about 3-5 seconds and shutts off.would not stay on.when i turn it off and on again will do the same. pls kindly help me

It has been a long time since i messed with one of these. i would suggest cleaning the nozzle and checking fuel filter the filter should be in the tank where line goes in.

Your problem is most likely the lack of pressure from the air pump. Your pressure is extremely low. Pressure on a 100k heater should run 5psi. At 3psi there is not enough fuel and not enough air to atomize whats there. Bump the pressure up. If it won't come up, then you have an air leak. Test w/ soapy water. Keep your fingers clear of the fan!

I have a 2003 Yamaha beartracker 250. I haven't started it in years the engine feels seized up. what can I do a out this? it ran fine the last time I used it.


Pour a little diesel down the spark plug hole... leave the spark plug out, keep it out of the rain... let it soak for a few days, then try the cord... may take up to a month but it will free up a little at a time.... once free keep the plugs out and pull hard a few times to get the diesel out of the piston chamber, change the oil as some of the diesel will get down to the bottom... put in new plugs and fire it up.

Need firing order with diagram


Firing order 1-5-6-3-4-2-7-8
Distributor rotor turn's clockwise
cylinder's 1-2-5-7 left side of motor
cylinder's 2-4-6-8 right side of motor back side by fire wall.

Maintance

Keep up with your oil changes every three months or 3,000 miles which ever comes first, also at same time have all fluid level check, fuel filter and air filter replace once a year, tune-ups every two years, have your brakes check once a year, unless then feel funny have them check right away, transmission if fluid and filter has not been change every 30,000 miles, I leave it alone or new fluid will damage transmission clutches and transmission will have to be overhaul within 30 to 60 days.

Not sure what happened i started my 97 cbr600f3 ran it on choke for about 45 sec. it started to die,so i eased the choke off it died and havent been able to fire it up since.any suggestions


Remove plugs to see what colour they are. If sooty then too rich / clean / install.
If wet then flooded, dry refit.
If clean and dry, starving lack of fuel.

Put diesel fuel in on accident pumped fuel out from fuel line in front of filter, filled up truck with regular fuel now runs bad and fuel pump is on continuous when running and pump ismaking loud noise


The diesel fuel is not a good lubricant for the pump and plugged the sock inside the tank replace the fuel pump and sock also pull spark plugs and clean I am sure it is running like ******* the diesel coats the plugs so they won't fire without being cleaned. Gas is much thinner than diesel and the gas lubricates the pump once the diesel washed off the bearings in the pump if most likely finished off a pump about to go anyway.17 years is a long time for new pump to last and in 92 they were not putting in the junk they are now in our fuels. If you need more help or want a price on the pump let me know.

04 f250 6l diesel cranks but will not start when cold.


it seems that because it sit's for a while that perhaps it's losing it's prime. if ythis happens generally you will have to reprime the fuel system. in a diesel system you also have glow plugs to help ignite the fuel. check to make sure your glow plugs work, but i would start with whether you have proper prime in the fuel system.. please rate this
