Hi, If the heater recommends kerosene or diesel only, and you mix gas into the situation, you will get an explosion and fire loosing not only the heater but most everything else.Unless the spec's say you can since it will use other fuels, gas would be one I would not use, mixed or not, like I say only if it says you can. At 70,000 B.T.U.s, as it says above, this Reddy heater burns hot anyway, and I don't want to put you in a dangerous situation by saying yes, go right ahead? So please check first, I would say no way. Good Luck, and Sincerely, Shastalaker7

Take air preassure from an air hose to turn the fan blades to loosen everything up. Time for afull service, like change the vanes in the pump, 3- filters fuel--2 air.

Assuming the "electronic safety shutdown system" is operating properly, the system is shutting the heater down becausr the control board/photocell don't like what is being seen inside the combustion chamber. That is what they are supposed to do if there is water, trash, an air leak, a vacuum leak, a broken ignitor, a worn nozzle, etc.
Your job, as the troubleshooter, is to find out why the flame is not correct. Read the tips below:
