It burns extreamly rich , fumes burn your eyes almost and dont want to start come time even though it has plenty of fuel. there is 2 adjustable knobs on the back . ( which is WHAT i guess to ask ) ...


Hi and Welcome to FixYa.

Go to page 12 of this manual:

http://www.desatech.com/techDocs/DESA%20HSI%20IGNITION%20SERVICE%20MANUAL.pdf

I suspect you have either a dirty air filter or... the pump pressure is higher than 5.3 PSIG The adjustment procedure is on page 12 of the above link.

Also the fuel vent cap is vented. If someone lost the vent rubber piece in the cap of the fuel tank cap it can cause the same symptom. Check the fuel cap per page 21 of the manual above.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

I have a reddy heater model r 50.. It ran for an hour, then shut off, I f I reset it, runs for 15 min or so shuts off... its old and borrowed, I think i might have a thermostat on it and just shuts off...


The R50 does not have a thermostat.

The 2 knobs that you mention- are they the screws in the black plastic end cover?

If so, these are the heartbeat of the fuel system and do not adjust. They adjust the air pump pressure which puts fuel in the nozzle and atomizes it. The pump pressure is critical. If the pressure is not correct the heater will shut down.

If you have adjusted the screw with a hole in it you will need to reset the pump pressure to specs. It's easy. http://reddyparts.com/photocell_test_sp.htm

Now, if you have not adjusted the pump, then you might want to check the tank for water.

Air fuel mixture screw adjustment, forced air kerosene heater


Most ready heaters have a fuel pressure setting on the back of the heater near the fan. There should be two small plastic covers, looking directly at the back, the one on the left can be removed and a pressure gauge installed. The one on the right is slotted for adjustment of pressure. I think the correct pressure for that model is 3.0 lbs.
