SOURCE: 70,000 BTU Ready Heater

If...the air pump pressure is right, the ignitor glows, the fuel is hitting the ignitor, then the unit will have combustion......unless.....

  1. there is an air leak on the pressure line
  2. there is a vacuum leak on the fuel line
  3. there is a leak at the nozzle adapter
  4. there is a restriction either in the nozzle or the fuel filter
  5. the nozzle is worn and is spraying fuel rather than fogging fuel

SOURCE: 150,000 BTU propane Reddy Heater shuts off after ignition

Is there a frost line on your LP tank, if so you may need to replace the tank with a larger tank or refill your tank. This can happen if the tank your using is too low or too small (use 100 lb tank or greater). If there is no frost line it may be an issue with the thermocouple. The manufacturer offers a service manual and owner's manuals on there site. This should assist you... www.desatech.com Thank you

SOURCE: I 50,000-85,000 All Pro Propane heater release red button fireout

If the red button has to be held down for a period of time to get the heater going it overrides the shutoff mechanism. If you are holding it the prescibed amount of time then either the hydraulic system which keeps your unit running is bad or out of place or the metering valve is bad. Check for a copper line with a bulb on the end. It should probably be in the fire created by the heater, if not bend it to be in the heat or very close. If this is ok then you may need to get a new burner for the unit which would probably mean buying an entire new unit as the cost would probably exceed the cost of a new unit. Let me know how you make out.

SOURCE: propane heater wont stay running

is the sensor for the thermocouple located in the right spot in the flame,remove it and if you have access to a propane torch,heat the end till its red hot and leave it connected to the gas valve,then start the unit and this will tell you if the sensor is properly positioned in the pilot flame on the unit itself,if not you could have a defective new thermocouple or another safety device keeping it from staying lit or the gas valve is faulty

This tends to be a problem with the thermocouple in these type of heaters. So you can try cleaning it with steel wool and positioning it over the top center of the flame. This is the hottest part of the flame, you can also check to see that the thermocouple is good and snug at the gas valve. After repeated heat cycles the thermocouple tends to loosen up just from expansion and contraction. Try my hints first and if they do not work then order you a new thermocouple. Good Luck

Locate the pressure switch within the safety circuit and jump the two wires that are connected to it. Be sure the power is off when doing so. Then you can power up the unit and it should fire assuming all the remaining safety circuit switches are closed. DO NOT RUN this for more than a few moments as you can damage the heat exchanger rather quickly operating the burners without water flowing thru the heater.
