Question about Reddy HEATER R70DT 70,000-BTU PORTABLE KEROSENE FORCED AIR HEATER
I have a heater that will run when first started and it runs for about 20 min. It runs good. But then it shuts off. After waiting about 1 min. it will start right back up but only for about 10 min. Then it shuts off again. The more times I run it the less times it stays on. I have cleaned the nozzle and filters and such. It has clean fuel. What is my problem? And what should the settings on the 2 screws be? Thanks for any help.

the first thing you need to do is go back to useing K1 kerosene, diesel fuel not only burns dirty but also has a tendency to gel up in cold weather which could be makeing it hard for the heater to draw the proper amount of fuel. To reset the pressure you will need a gage, it should run at about 6-7 psi. you can order a pressure gage from mr. heater online, they are by far the cheapest I have found as they are the actual manufacturer or call 1-800-251-0001

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.
