Question about Reddy HEATER R70DT 70,000-BTU PORTABLE KEROSENE FORCED AIR HEATER

Open Question

Runs when started but won't stay running

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.

SOURCE: pro 110, runs 10 min., blows white smoke ,shuts off

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.
