Question about Reddy Heater-170,000 BTU Kerosene Deluxe

2 Answers

Reddy Heater Model R150A fires up then shuts down after a short while. I push reset button and will fire up and run for just a couple of minutes. If I let it cool down for about 15 or 20 minutes it will run for a short while again then shut down. I have reolaced the rectangular black plastic cover and adjusted the air presure to 5 lbs. What would be my next step in diagnosing my problem to fix it?

IF, notice I said "if" ...the heater is running to your satisfaction while it is running, meaning not stinking, sputtering, or smoking, the the reset itself is probably bad. To test the reset, bypass it. Do not leave it bypassed because it is the safety device. Part HA3003 Safety Control. Try reddyparts.com They seem to have the most parts.

Heater shuts down prematurly


If the heater runs fine for the 15 or so minutes without smoke/odor- do this
  1. check for water droplets on bottom of tank
  2. check for restricted fuel filter
  3. test photocell
  4. test safety control (reset)
You don't state whether this is a spark plug heater *or* Hot Surface Ignitor type. I made the assumption you were inquirung about a Spark Plug Heater. Disregard the list if the heater is an HSI type---- troubleshooting is different.

Reddy Heater keeps shutting down


check your cad cell. replace this. it is not detecting a flame. replacing the cad cell will fix your problem. when it shuts down it goes into lockout.
