You may want to contact Master Parts, they may not have the bearings. However, they may have that motor at a reasonable price. You can contact them at 800-446-1446 or online at www.masterparts.net. I hope this helps you.

115,000 btu reddy heater, 5 hrs used in sprayfoam-grinding environment. stopped working. when plugged in, only hums for a few seconds, then stops. how can i fix that?


First, remove the top cover. Inspect for a varmint nest. If clear, manually spin the fan. If it does not you either have a broken rotor that is binding or you have a bad bearing.

If it spins freely, apply power- see if the motor runs with the top cover removed.
If YES, replace the top cover. Its possible that the top is binding the fan.
If NO, the start capacitor is defective. The cap on R115 is internal and is not servicable.

My Reddy heater torpedo multi fuel heater won't start this year. It makes a loud humming noise for a minute or so and then nothing. If I try starting it a few times in a row it will make the noise...


Remove the top cover and rotate the fan by hand. If should turn pretty easily. If not may you can put some oil where the shaft passes through the ends otherwise you will need a new motor. If the fan turns easily then the capacitor is probably shot. I don't know if you can get the capacitor seperate from the motor or not. There is a small low pressure compressor attached to the back of the motor. Your problem may also lie in there. The covers come off easily so you can check it out.

Will the fan on the reddy heater not run if the ignighter is bad? When i plug it in the fan doesn't run.Do i need to replace the motor?


The fan motor runs regardless of the igniter as it is also the fuel pump. Possibly you may need to replace the motor but try this first. Remove the top section of the heater this exposes the fan motor, try spinning the motor by hand,it should spin freely if it does not try some light oil in the front and rear bearings of the motor and turn it by hand until it frees up. You may need to do this several times!! Now that it is spinning free put the heater back together and try it out. If it does not work a new motor is in your future. Hope this works out for you.

Hello i havent Used my ready heater 60000 btu since last winter. It was working fine when i unpluged and emptied it...now when i plug it up i hear a hum and nothing else no blower or anything....could ude...


Hi,
The fan motor is setup...
Tear it part and get some WD-40 worked into the motor at the shaft end... then when you get it spinning freely... get some light motor oil worked into the bearing...

Works best if you can tip the heater back so the WD-40 and oil naturally run back into the motor...

When I plug the unit in, the fan turns very slow, and I smell fumes, but the unit does'nt turn on


I am not able to give you a solution, but will put forth some possibilities for you to check.
  1. Spin the fan manually. No power, please. If the fan spins freely, and no grinding is heard or felt, then the starter capacitor or starter relay (whichever equipped) is defective. Internal capacitors are not serviceable. Replace the motor.
  2. If the fan does NOT spin freely and/or binds, either the rotor (air pump) is broken or a motor bearing is bad. The rotor is replaceable, the motor bearing is not serviceable.
If you decide to repair the heater as described then the air pump pressure must be reset, in either case, in order for the heater to burn properly. It is a simple process. Follow this link for instructions

R55B Reddy Heater won't stay running. (PMS? menopause?)


Wow! Yours is the best description of a problem I have ever seen!!! Before I read the whole thing I figured you missed the pressure check as most people do but you nailed it. This is what I would try, Replace the air filter, the fuel filter, and the fuel (to make absolutely sure there is no water in the fuel) and readjust the fuel/air mixture. If that does not do it replace the cadmium cell they only cost pennies. Let me know how you make out and good luck.

PS, I have one of these so I am pretty familiar with the problems.

Reddy Heater 110K btu motor won't start.


Bearing have gone bad in the electric motor. You will have to replace the electric motor. They are expensive but still cheaper than buying a whole new heater.

I had the same problem. I took the nozzle head off and blew through it with air. I also blew through the air line, this is the one that goes to motor. It has worked fine ever since.

Noisy kickspace heater


it probably is a sealed motor but if you have access to it you may be able to oil it with a very thin oil - like 3 in one oil. the bearings are undoubtedly oil-lite which is a porous bronze bearing pressed into the end bells of the motor. for fractional horsepower motors I'd go to grainger dot com to see if a replacement can be found.
