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).

I have a 2006 Cobalt when I start it something always sounds like a fan runs after the engine runs for about 30 seconds and whatever sounds like a fan running only stays on for about 10 seconds. Can you...

I suspect that it is the operation of a viscous fan hub. Check this by placing your finger on a blade and seeing if you can spin the fan with the engine stopped. It operates when the engine is started and pumps silicone fluid from one side to the other inside the hub and when it has done so the fan slows down in relation to engine speed . Hence the fan noise on starting and then after a short period the fan noise goes away. It will start to operate again when the engine temperature starts to rise when you are stopped at lights or idling for a while to draw air through the radiator to cool the coolant and when you start moving and air is passing through the radiator again it will slow down. If you experience engine overheating while idling have it replaced as it is not pulling enough air through the radiator to do the job

I have a Challenge GBV180 Garden Blower Vacuum. I can only get it to blow ..does this model vacuum and if so how do the bits attach ?

remove the blower tube by turning anticlockwise. remove cover from air inlet same way. attach large diameter suction tube to air inlet (has to fit correctly as this is where the safety switch is) attach collection bag to air exhaust opening (where you removed the blower tube from)

Heater turns on for a few seconds then goes out

Absolutely K1 or diesel can get old in a hurry, the ultra-low Sulphur diesel has been tinkered with so much that it turns to book varnish much faster than before 2010. Most of those heaters spray fuel past the igniters using a siphon much like a spray paint gun, the suction tube may have dry rot or a small air leak and it it takes but a tiny air leak to kill the siphon effect. Check the tube from the nozzle all the way down to the fuel tank or replace it if you're not certain it is not compromised or dry rotted.
