The heater shuts off after 5 seconds because the photocell fails to see a correct flame, in your case any flame at all. That's the photocell's job.

What you are going to have to do is troubleshoot the unit to see if the problem is fuel related or electronics related.

Go to the ReddyParts.com website for troubleshooting tips. This is a good place to start.

You must make sure the mist is not to close to the igniter . If it is it wont be misty enough to ignite. And make sure its in the path of the mist. If its new return it to the store.

My reddy heater comes on and burns perfectly for up to 30 minutes then it shuts off and blows smoke for a couple of seconds before it completely shuts down.


This doesn't help. There at least 4 60k Reddy Heaters models -some are spark plug heaters, some have the new Hot Surface Ignitor technology. All heaters have specific model. Without you knowing the model I can't help, sorry.

this have a flame controler, if the flame didn't goes on in few seconds the unit automatically stops. back plug and start again, if not star after tree times check the flame control thermocuple, or get the unit in service to fix it.

Keeps shutting off and the fan won't come on at all


Thed fan should come on soon after plugging in as long as the heater is cold. The heater then shuts off after sensing no flame. Either the wiring is bad, the fan motor is bad, of the top has been bent down so it is hitting the fan. Remove the top, make sure the fan turns freely and check power to the fan motor. The fan motor also turns the air pump that **** the ful out of the tank. Ck this and let me know if you need help.

I have a Reddy heater pro 155.


Check all of your air filters but most likely it's the CAD flame sensor.
