Question about Reddy Heater-170,000 BTU Kerosene Deluxe
The kero heaters aren't really a pain to work on if you have a basic knowledge of what is to happen. Someone reported on one of their heaters that the motor armature was a tad oversized and wouldn't spin. He contacted the dealer and they supplied him with a new motor armature. reddy heat didn't issue a recall because they couldn't find the heaters. Ignition sources are the hot surface igniter or the spark plug type. The motor end air compressors are a vane type with close tolerances. The air pressure is 3.0 - 3.5 psi. The fuel nozzle forms a venturi that produces a vacuum that sucks the fuel up into it. the cad cell or photocell detects the ultraviolet in the flames and completes the lockout relay. no flame no woikee. the detector circuit has a solid state device called a triac. it is just a glorified motor contactor without all the movable contact stuff. it will carry 40 amps when its working right. you can bypass the safety circuit by jumping out the red wire and the black. the fan motor will run all the time.
