Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

Heater shuts off unexpectedly

My very old 30000 btu reddy heater lights and runs ok for maybe 10 minutes then shuts off. If I reset it, it will run again for maybe 5 minutes and shut off. It's been stored for a long time without use.

I would suspect that either the reset (HA3003 Safety Control) or the photocell (HA3019) is bad. For test purposes only bypass them one at a time- see if the unit ron OK.

Sounds like you need to adjust the airflow so that it is getting enough air to burn.

MY KEROSENE HEATER STARTS, RUNS MAYBE 5 MINUTES THEN SHUTS OFF


Same problem I had and it was the CAD/flmae sensor. you can get one that will fit from Mr. Heater for 3 bucks or from reddypats.com for 18. the wires are a different color but all you do is clip them and splice them to your old wire harness. It does''nt matter how you hook them as there is no hot and ground just a complete circuit.

Reddy Heater won't stay lit


You dont need a tune up kit! If you replace the units thermostat and the unit will work like new again (this is why it keeps shutting off) This is a very common problem with this model.
