Heater not blowing

When I turn on the heater, there is a loud clicking coming from the unit, hardly any air blowing, and there is arcing from the connectors inside the init. Can anyone lead me toward a potential solution?

    I just started having this problem, do you think that when I vaccumed all the dust out I might have disconnected a wire? It was working just fine before then. It even worked afterwards, I noticed it the next day that it wasnt run properly.

In AC mode the cooler fan doesn't turn on and after a little while the warm air starts to blow instead of cold air. Any ideas

Sounds like a bad or stuck reversing valve. Typically r.vs. are energized in cooling, verify 24 volts to valve, if yes , bad valve

Heater not blowing hot air

When the fan motor is loud it means its out of balance. Kind of like a dishwasher.

Could a business card or two have slipped through the defrost vents ? or maybe leaves have accumulated in the fans squirrel cage.

A heater motor isn't hard to remove. Usually above your feet on the passenger side held in with 3 or 4 screws and one heavy wire.

Dayton 3VE59 Gas Utility/Portable Heater won't ignite, power and gas to unit

Just repaired one of these, problem was that main gas valve was not opening, valve is controlled by a vacuum switch, vacuum is created as fan blows air down tube past bent up metal flap near front bottom of heater (slight low pressure zone created). If vacuum switch is miss adjusted it will not close when fan is running and no gas flows. this is easy to check as vacuum switch also has a pressure port on it. With gas disconnected, remove bottom cover, locate vacuum switch (it has a hose clear plastic hose connected to it, in opposite corner is another hose connection, attach a length of hose to it that you can blow lightly into. With heater plugged in and no gas connected (USE CAUTION OF WIRE!!!), turn heater on you should hear after a few seconds the ignition and then a loud click as the gas valve opens, if no click blow lightly into end of your added tube, if you now hear a click the gas valve just opened. if you stop blowing you might hear the gas valve click again as it re-closes. If this is the case the vacuum switch needs to be adjusted slightly. THIS switch is hear for your safety, Adjust at your own risk!!! This can be done with a screw drive in the top, rotate screw slightly while checking if the fan alone causes enough vacuum to make the switch work. DO NOT over adjust. check safety operation before hooking up gas by placing a piece of cardboard or wood over the air intake and the exhaust to block airflow, if the air flow is blocked you should hear the gas valve drop out and reconnect as air flow is reestablished. Hope this helps

1997 S-10 41000 Miles. Heater blows cold air.

The actuator for the door that switches, the blend dorr sounds to be problem, although at times the actual door can be problem.if it is binding this would cause the same sound. This is a a complicated job if it is the door, not so much if it is actuator.

When i turn on the heater it just blows smoke

according to desatech who makes reddy heat, the air compressor on the back of the fan should put out no more than 3.5 psi to the nozzle. you could also check the air path through the combustion chamber. sounds to me that the nozzle isn't atomizing the fuel but its coming out in a stream. the nozzle is supposed to make a conical pattern if the air pressure is correct.
