SOURCE: The heater will run for about 45 sec. and shut down

Hi, make sure the fan is staying on before it shuts off. It sounds as though the unit is shutting off on high limit switch. For what reason I do not no. It could just be faulty. If it is a forced air as you say and the air is not as strong as it normally would be, this would cause the high limit to open. If you have a diagram or a manual on it anywhere, you can try and find this high limit switch and use a piece of electrical wire to bypass it or jump it out to see if this is the fault. They are normally located in the burner section, the probe part of it anyway. It senses the temperature of the out-put and if the fan is forcing enough heat out, and if not, off it will go. So, try and locate it and jump it out. If it continues to run then this is a safety switch and should only be left jumped out while trouble-shooting and must be replaced. If you can't find one in town, you can order one on the Internet. Check the motor also and check to see if all parts where the air flows is clean also. Get back to me and let me know what you have found and if we need to go further into it.
Sincerely,
Shastalaker7

SOURCE: will not stay running

first plae to check is the electric eye. it has to tell the control circut that it sees good flame. next check to see that the fuel filter is clean.

Replace the primary control (the component that has the reset button).

SOURCE: My electric Kerosene heater will shut off

You need to do a little maintenance. I have a tip at http://www.fixya.com/support/r4124129-yearly_maintenance_reddy_heaters which explains the problem and where to get the parts to get your unit running like new. Most portable heater parts are the same. Also DESA went into bankruptcy but many dealers still sell parts. It is all in my tip. Let me know if you need more help.

I would say the thermostat is bad after reading your problem over several times. There is no reason to suspect a wiring problem, and I strongly suggest you don't bypass anything! A fire or explosion could result. Replace the thermostat as a probable cause.

Reddy heater R55tb


what is pictured is a propane heater. two problem areas come to mind. one) the hi limit cutout, and two) the flame sensor. the hi limit is a normally closed device that is bolted to the back plate of the fire chamber. its two wires go to the cappilary of the flame sensor. the flame sensor is of the j-k thermocouple. it generates a millivolt signal to keep the pilot valve open. the flame sensor generates a dc output to the tiny electromagnet inside the main valve. when you start the unit, a hot surface igniter heats up, the main valve opens, a signal is generated to keep the valve open. if it doesn't sense a flame it shuts down and goes into lockout. change the flame sense unit first. what you can also do is temporarily put a jumper wire on the two terminals on the cappillary of the flame sensor.
