Look at the plate on the side and calculate Voltage (110 typically) times amps (what ever it says on the plate) gives you watts.

On model mw8626w can i use it in my semi with a 1000 watt inverter?

Take a look at the oven's electric rating information. It should be on the label with the model and serial number, and it will tell you how many amps the oven needs. Power in watts is volts times amps, so a 1000-watt inverter is good for about 8 amps at 120 volts output. Some inverters also use a peak rating, meaning power than can be delivered for a short time. The continuous power may be less than that; you'll need to look at the inverter. As long as the power needed by the oven is within the inverter's ratings then you'll be able to use it. Otherwise you'll need to shop for one with more output power.

Reddy pro155 with a glowrod, need to know how to adjust air/fuel mixture. Worked fine till I messed with it and now I don't know how to put it back.

You need a pressure guage to connect to the port beside the one you used to adjust the mixture. The pressure you want is listed on the data label of the heater. A pressure guage with a range of 1-15psi is best.

I am using a 160,000 btu unit, and would like to figure out the electrical cost (not factoring kerosne costs) to run as I am using someone else's power. What I am looking for is the wattage used at max...

kilowatts= electric motor rating in horse power X 746 watts X 24 hours X 60 minutes X 60 seconds/1000

1.50 hp X 746/1hp X 24 hours x 3600seconds =

1.5 * 746 * 24*3600 =96681.6 kilowatts/day

Is R155D the same as PRO155 ? If so , fine .... Other than that I`m not sure what else you`d need to know !? It`s real old and needs a set of filters... It fires quickly ... sounds normal ... doesn`t run...

You wrote "Is R155D the same as PRO155 ?" Answer- Yes, The R155D is a pro 155, BUT so are many other 155's and not all use the same technology. The newer ones are computerized, the older ones are not.

Yours, the R155D is computerized and uses HSI (hot surface ignitor) technology.

Filters....part number PP214 (complete filter kit).

Vector vec 051D 3000 watt fan won't run anymore, unit overheats

your inverter needs to cool at all times , if the fan does not work,try buying a small standing fan to blow cool air to you machine, it is possible that your heater is making the inverter to over heat please avoid using the heater on the inverter

Reddy pro155 runs for 3 to 5 seconds

Reply with the correct model number. "Pro 155" designates a series. We need to know whether you have a heater with a spark plug or a heater with an ignitor (glowbar).

Reddy Heater 70 (Kerosene) won't start

In the same temperature range that is giving you trouble, run an ext cord (110v) from a known good household circuit and plug the heater into the cord. If the heater runs OK, then the inverter is your problem.
