Sounds like your pressure screw on the back could need adjusting or look at your manual under troubleshooting it will give you the correct answer to your problem.

I have a 60,000 btu Reedy Heater runs 5-10 min then shuts off restarts black puff of smoke bad plug ??


Check the fuel filter on the units as well as the inlet and outlet filters on the back of the motor.

Watch the nose cone and see if the end starts to loose the glowing orange color before it quits.
If the unit slowly looses the color then you have a fuel problem but if the unit just quits at full heat then you could have a electrical problem.

Typically the spark plugs on these heaters don't go bad.

My reedy heater pro 110 blows fuel out the front but does not ignite and then shuts down


The Pro 110 comes in 2 different technologies. The true model (examples: R110, RHD110T, etc) designates which technology your heater has. Rather than ask for clarification I am posting links to Troubleshooting Tips for BOTH types. You must investigate to see if your heater is the Spark Plug technology or the HSI (glowbar) technology.

Troubleshooting greatly differs between the 2 types.

Pro 110, runs 10 min., blows white smoke ,shuts off


the first thing you need to do is go back to useing K1 kerosene, diesel fuel not only burns dirty but also has a tendency to gel up in cold weather which could be makeing it hard for the heater to draw the proper amount of fuel. To reset the pressure you will need a gage, it should run at about 6-7 psi. you can order a pressure gage from mr. heater online, they are by far the cheapest I have found as they are the actual manufacturer or call 1-800-251-0001

Reset button keeps popping and the time between becomes shorter.


check the photo eye. It's the little rubber boot on the bottom right on the back side of the burner. If it's dirty, it may not be shutting off the igniter. If the igniter runs continuously, the safety breaker will trip.

Reddy Heater will not ignite flame


Please answer the following questions. There are several folks on the board that can help but we need to know some vital information so we can get started. Answer these, if you can:
  1. Which Pro 110 do you have. We need the exact model number. Pro 110 is a series of heaters.
  2. Does the heater have a spark plug or a glowbar (HSI)?
  3. When the motor runs is it pumping fuel?
  4. When the motor runs is the spark plug firing (or glowbar glowing)?

Reddy heater pro 110


My best guess is that you are are connecting to your AC receptacle with an extention cord that is too small. The Reddy Heater contains a computer that will shut the unit off if it cannot pull enough amps from your service. The longer the cord the higher the loss from receptacle to unit. This loss can be reduced by increasing the size of your extention cord. I run a 100' 10/2 cord.

Hope this helps!

Does your heater use the older spark plug technology or the newer Hot Surface Ignitor (HSI) technology?

Without this critical information about all this technician can do is guess.

My best guess at this time would be either water in the fuel or a restricted fuel filter.
