Question about Reddy Heating & Cooling
Remove the cover and check for spark at plug when plugged in if no spark check spark plug gor proper gap, or defective transformer electronic ignitor if you see spark check for proper pump pressure and restricted fuel flow due to seal leak, filter blocked and restriction in nozzle. I would check for defective photocell first for soot/dirt if dirty wipe with clean damp cloth remove photocell from heater and connect ohmeter on the 1000 ohl (rx1k) scale. Hold the lens up to a light source (60 wtt bulb, with the lens of the photocell pointed towards the source the resistance of the meter should be low by clocking off the light source by putting thumb over opening of cell the resistance on meter should be high, replace photo cell if a change in resistance is not observed during this test, let me know if you need more assistance
