My best guess is that you are are connecting to your AC receptacle with an extention cord that is too small. The Reddy Heater contains a computer that will shut the unit off if it cannot pull enough amps from your service. The longer the cord the higher the loss from receptacle to unit. This loss can be reduced by increasing the size of your extention cord. I run a 100' 10/2 cord.
Hope this helps!

I just had the identical problem in the shop. Found the fuel filter almost completely clogged. Replaced the filter and it ran great.

1) carburetor gaskets/diaphragms may need to be replaced
2) ignition coil may be breaking down when hot
3) check compression when cold, then after it stops, when hot
4) could have a vacuum/pressure leak
*I would investigate carb first
