When I turn my reddy heater on model R115d(t) the fan cycle for approximatley 5 seconds then stops. The glow plug is getting red but no fuel. What could cause this?


Could be a dirty air filter. Fuel nozzle could be clogged. Fuel filter clogged, if it has one. Some don't. Could be a problem with the low pressure compressor that is attached to back of the fan motor.

I TURN SWITCH ON GLOW PLUG LIGHTS UP BLOWER TURNS ON BUT WILL NOT IGNITE


Naturally, my first question: Is it getting fuel?

If not always start troubleshooting by checking the air pump pressure. The pump pressure is directly related to fuel delivery.

My revo is getting fuel light on start remote are on both motor and glow plug engine will just turn over but will not start up


Hi
You've checked the glow plug externally to see the wire get red? If so, as long as you've got fuel and fire then it has to start. My guess here is that you have either a bad glow plug, low batteries, fuel air leak or clogged pressure line. Put a charged battery into the starter. Remove the glow plug and try to start - fuel should spurt up through the glow plug opening. Now connect the glow plug and touch it to the engine. Try to start and you should see the glow plug wire glow red. (do this only for a second. Now disconnect the pressure tap from the muffler and try to start. All else fails, replace the fuel line to the carb and the pressure tap. Your carburetor can leak air through the rubber gasket . Also, Traxxas fuel tanks have a cracking problem. Good luck

Heater starts runs for 10 min then smoke comes out. then raw kerosene is in unit and starts fire in the air box area.


Can you tell if it has a glow coil ignitor or if its Spark
ignition??

If its a glow coil, you could have a problem on the control board or if it has a thermostat make sure it is
turned all the way up and the ignitor is glowing. If it
glows and goes out after firing that explains the smoke. Usuall they are either good or broke. Check
the air filters in the back. Make sure fuel line is
air free and that the blower motor is pushing air
out of a plastic hose that goes into the nozzle
assembly.
