Mr Heater MH75KT - won't start with diesel

I bought a brand new Mr Heater MH75KT multi-fuel space heater, filled it with #2 diesel, and it will not burn. Igniter is throwing a good spark, fuel is flowing thorugh the nozzle, but no fire. If I press my finger over the vent nozzle the flame starts but as soon as I remove my finger from the vent the flame goes out and then the heater shuts off with the LED doing 6 flashes for no flame sensed. How does one make this heater burn diesel>

If the MH75KT is the correct model, then it is a Kerosene only heater. Fuels, like oil and diesel all have different ignition points.

Added gas to diesel multi fuel turbo heater


Your talking about 1/8 cup of gas, per gallon of diesel. I think it should be fine but it will run hotter than usual. You will need to keep an eye on the flame and after it warms up. If the flame continues to pass by the cone then you will need to drain between 1 to 2 gallons out and store it (You will need to use your best judgement). Fill the heater back up with new diesel and use. when you run out, add 1 gallon of the tainted diesel to 2 gallons of new diesel and repeat. You will need to pay attention to the performance and make your own determination. Please remember that these units are to be used in well ventilated areas. They produce a lot of carbon monoxide. Good luck., .

Big buddy Heater - 20 lb tanks won't keep pilot lit,


I had the same problem I called tech support and they said to turn the valve on the 20# cylinder on very slowly for the first 1/4 turn then all will be fine. There is an excessive flow check valve that causes restricted flow when the valve is opened quickly----------mine works fine now

Can you burn diesel fuel


Hi, If this heater is the Reddy 170,000 b.t.u. heater, model # 170t professional series, then yes you can.It is a multi-fuel heater. Fuels it can use are Kerosene, JP8, Jet A fuel, 1&2 Diesel fuel, and 1&2 fuel oil. It must be this model 170T.
Sincerely,

What will happen if I burn a diesel/ gas mix in a reddy heater 55000 multi fuel heater?


Hi, If the heater recommends kerosene or diesel only, and you mix gas into the situation, you will get an explosion and fire loosing not only the heater but most everything else.Unless the spec's say you can since it will use other fuels, gas would be one I would not use, mixed or not, like I say only if it says you can. At 70,000 B.T.U.s, as it says above, this Reddy heater burns hot anyway, and I don't want to put you in a dangerous situation by saying yes, go right ahead? So please check first, I would say no way. Good Luck, and Sincerely, Shastalaker7

Heater wont stay lit unless cover is off. heater is dynaglo 12500


it souds like it is starveing for air, I would check all of the filters and the air line that runs to the combustion nozzle as it may have a crack or break in it. The nozzle does tend to get pretty hot and the lines get brittle after a while.
