    took your advice and starter to strip compressor motor. impeller is graphite with 4 '' ftoating'' blades, at one point in the rotarion the impeller tightens against the housing because of slightly bent motor shaft? I took out the impeller and sanded it down where it made contact. the fan will now spins freely and so far it lights and runs fine

Runs, but why does it shut down after a few minutes?


Appears to be a thermal issue. See if there is also a fan that is supposed to be running. If there is one and not working, then the unit is overheating and shutting down to protect itself and you.

I have an All Pro 150000 btu kerosene / diesel torpedo heater. It runs for a few minutes and then starts sputtering, shooting flames and smoke. What causes this problem?


First thing is to download the service manual.

http://www.desaparts.com/service_manuals.html

You need to make sure the filters are clean and that you are getting the proper air pump pressure.

If the units starts up and runs good and slowly goes out it will normally be due to a lack of fuel getting to the nozzle. When there is not enough fuel being delivered to the nozzle from either a clogged fuel filter of dirty air pump output filter the unit will slowly shut down from lack of fuel.

If the unit shuts down while it is running properly and the nose come is orange then you probably have a problem with a photocell or the flame out control.

If you have other questions you can contact our service department at 269-685-4125 at extension 224

Have a master 165,000 btu turbo heater it always starts and runs but sometimes it will run for 5 minutes 7 or 10 no matter where i set the built in thermostat,any tips ????


I would start by checking the fuel filter form the tank to the nozzle. If this is getting dirty the heater will slowly start loosing the red glow on the nose cone until the until shuts down.
Normally if it sets for a few minutes it will start and run again.

You can order a filter replacement kit that has all of your filters included.

I have a Reddy Heater 70,000BTU without a thermostat. It will flare off and within a few seconds the fire goes out and then the it trips out. After a few tries it won't even flare off. What might be wrong?


hello. Your reddy heater is dirty and needs a good cleaning. Also, here are a few other possible reasons why it won't operate properly. Pressure not adjusted to 5.1 psi, dirty outlet filter, clogged inlet filter, bad or dirty photo cell, defective reset switch, pump going bad, dirty injector nozzle, dirty fuel filter, contaminated fuel. Check yours out and do what you can to address each area of concern. Regards, Joe

I have a Lasko Model 5532 electric heater. It has suddenly started shutting off often. I run it through the reset procedure (unplug 5-10 minutes, then restart) and that gets it going again, but then it...


All of these space heaters have thermal protection units in them. They are safety that shuts the unit down if it starts to overheat.If your fan is operating, then it sounds like the thermal protection circuit is faulty, and you'll need to contact Lasko for a replacement. These units do not have parts that can be purchased due to their UL compliance. Check the fan though, it might be obstructed. I have seen that more than once....Rob

All pro heater runs for a couple of minutes.then


it only shuts down because of an overheating condition or the lack of fuel. if you have an ohm or multimeter, check the ohms on the fan and see if you have any resistance. If you do the fan is good but may still not be putting enough air across the heat exchanger to safely alloww the heater to run without causing a fire.

Draper dhs80i space heater cutting out after 25 minutes if you turn off/on again at wall it turns back on for 10 minutes,then cuts off again any ideas what wrong thanks


Does this heater have a fan,forced heat? If so, the unit will shut down if the fan is sluggish or stops. It could be getting too hot or the rhermal safety is weak.

Wont stay running


Reddy suggests: 1. Propane supply may be inadequate 2. High surrounding air temperature causing thermal limit device to shut down heater 3. Restricted air flow 4. Damaged fan 5. Excessive dust or debris in surrounding area solutions are: 1. A) Refill tank B) Provide additional and/or larger tanks. 2. This can happen when running heater in temperatures above 85° F (29° C). Run heater in cooler temperatures 3. Check heater inlet and outlet. Remove any obstructions 4. Replace fan. 5. Clean heater. could not get manual for your exact model but if you want manual for RLP 125 then; http://12.153.20.74/manuals/113893-01C.PDF appears to be the same beast. Hope helps :)
