Re: Replacing rotor on Readdy Heater

Remove top shell. Remove cover. Remove filters. Remove filter base. Then it should pull out. Check clearance on new rotor .003/.004 checked with feeler gage. Reinstall in reverse order. Reset air pressure. Good luck.

Hello, I have a 70,000 btu readdy heater that don't want to ignite. When I pull the top cover off the heater works fine, but the minute I put the cover back on it does not want to ignite. I'm stumped.

Does your heater have an oxygen sensor on it? If so try gently cleanig dust,lint or other debris from it . If that does't help I would replace it. I hope thishelps you. Thanks

Reddy Heater R55 55,000 BTU heater spits and sputters but CONTINUES TO RUN. Air pressure is at 3.4 (was 4.0). new lines, Plug is firing well, fuel is old but clean. My question is: is there supposed to be...

If you brought the heater to my shop with the great (no lie!) description of the problem we would immediately grab a flashlight, shine into the tank and look for water droplets rolling on the bottom of the than. (Keep in mind that a layer of water can be on bottom & not show up with the light)

The next thing would be to use soapy water and try to find a crack in or around the plastic cover and move all the way to the nozzle looking for an air leak. 3.4 at the gauge doesn't mean the air is going all the way to the nozzle.

Next, remove the top cover. Does the heater run fine once removed? If so, replace the worn out nozzle. That heater has some age on it and DESA recommended annual replacement.

The filter is more of a strainer than a filter. It is hollow.

Ready heater sparks and theen just blows smoke

Make sure the fuel is not contaminated,and is k 1 ,if it is diesel fuel in it,and it is not made for diesel ,then that is the problem,also use a anti gel additive for gelling in the fuel,it doesn`t have to be that cool for gelling.

Reddy Heater R55 concerns

They are grounds, and should have two screws on the burner tray to hold it from moving. On my heater this is where the grounds get attached. It gives the igniter a dedicated direct ground.
