Question about Reddy Heater-40,000 BTU Kerosene w/T'stat

1 Answer

(ready heater) won't start or starts and goes out after 30 seconds of running.

It seems like it is getting to much air, i cover the inlet or slow the inlet air down and it will run. We hve had the hood off and it will run w/o any problems. We are lost . Can someone help? We have drained the tank and washed it out. Nothing unusual came out. the filter was changed when we cleaned it. we didn't mess with any of the adjustments (air or filters).

Have a Goodman GMT070-3B which the vent motor seems to be sticking. I took apart and cleaned the brushes and reassembled. The furnace will come on only after what seems like the vent motor comes up to...

The whole assembly must be replaced.

The sequence of operation is -

Combustion fan purges the heat exchanger. A pressure switch verifies combustion air fan is running. Usually a 30-45 second purge before the hot surface ignitor glows, or the spark ignition starts.

Gas valve opens after 10-15 seconds and main burners light. Control board monitors for flame and shuts gas valve after 2-3 seconds if main burner does not light.

If burner does not light, some boards repeat this for 3 tries, then locks out and is reset by cycling power.

Air blower comes on after another 30-45 seconds after main burner ignition.

Times may vary based on the specific controller board. A flow chart and timing sequence should be located somewhere on the unit, usually in the fan compartment.

Seems that my R-40 is not pumping fuel

You must set the pressure! If the heater runs with your compressor connected, but won't when the pressure is disconnected, well.......

Setting the pressure is easy!

check pressure of the air compressor should be in the 3.0 to 3.5 range. not enough won't suck fuel, too much will blow out the flame. igniter either lights or it doesn't no in between. does the main flame come on?

replace the nozzle and check the fuel filter - if this is a kerosene heater. under the access plate is a round filter - remove it completely or change it.
