cdoman,

This is a common problem with Reddy Heaters after they get a few years on them. Your air/fuel mixture needs to be set. I have a tip at http://www.fixya.com/support/r4124129-yearly_maintenance_reddy_heaters which explains the problem, where to get parts and how to complete the repair.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the generous rating!!

My reddy heater comes on and burns perfectly for up to 30 minutes then it shuts off and blows smoke for a couple of seconds before it completely shuts down.


This doesn't help. There at least 4 60k Reddy Heaters models -some are spark plug heaters, some have the new Hot Surface Ignitor technology. All heaters have specific model. Without you knowing the model I can't help, sorry.

When filled with kerosene then plugged in, the heater will kick on for about 3 seconds and the fan will run but it will not ignite, then it shuts off. reddy heater 55, 55000btu. runs on K1 or fuel oil.

I have a R-150. starts runs and fames out in 30 seconds and continues to blow fuel for about 20 to 30 seconds and then I assume flame sensor shuts it down. Im thinking ignition coil. Any ideas. Thanx


What usually causes that is the ignition component is not hot enough to sustain a hot enough temperature to keep the fuel burning some have a spark ignition some have a hot surface ignition,try replacing it and it should work fine.

Won't ignite and fill the entire tube with flame, cold air, smoke


The deisel fuel hogged it up. Clean everything out and replace the wick. Deisel fuel is filthy to burn and it needs a lot of airflow.

Blows smoke


Both problems soud like fuel delivery problems. Start troubleshooting fuel delivery problems by checking and getting the air pump pressure to specs.
