You said the fan blows but does it light? Diesel may have gummed up the nozzle or pump or fuel line.

I hava an All Pro 65,000 BTU heater. It was working fine a week ago. The igniter glows, fuel mists but doesn't light off then shuts down. Ideas?


I am sure you have confirmed that the fuel is fresh and good, no water in it, etc.--
It is kerosene, not #2 Diesel fuel, right?

And the shutting down is good, if the flame does NOT ignite--- :-)
So we have to figure out why the fuel is not getting hot enough to ignite?


Question-- is the oil spray passing close enough to the ignitor?
And this unit does NOT use SPARK to ignite?, correct? --
for most of these heaters have spark ignition.. I am learning all the time, too!

How about checking the fuel pressure. and the air -- is it correct?
Check with your manual how to check and adjust.

After testing these tings, let us know what you learned

Heater will not light, i have followed the instructions ,turning thermostate all the way up first,and turn on now what happenes is the glow plug or igniter gets red hot the blower kicks on fuel sprays on...


If you brought the heater to our shop, and gave the above description, the first thing that we would do is check the air pump pressure.

Then, if the pressure is correct (not just close) we would check the photocell for signs of insect nest or something similar blocking the view of the eye.

You must troubleshoot to find out if the problem is fuel related or electronics related- maybe these tips will help (click for link).

Reddy heater won't start


The heater shuts off after 5 seconds because the photocell fails to see a correct flame, in your case any flame at all. That's the photocell's job.

What you are going to have to do is troubleshoot the unit to see if the problem is fuel related or electronics related.

Go to the ReddyParts.com website for troubleshooting tips. This is a good place to start.

Won't ignite and fill the entire tube with flame, cold air, smoke


The deisel fuel hogged it up. Clean everything out and replace the wick. Deisel fuel is filthy to burn and it needs a lot of airflow.

Igniter lites up fan kicks on and within 5 sec shuts off


Dustin, The ignitor only glows for 5 seconds, just long enough to ignite the fuel. The heater is shutting down because the photocell does not see the correct flame color.
Since you say "comes on for 5 seconds", I can only assume that there is a flame. You do not specify a lack of flame. I am also assuming that you have had the heater running this heater season and the problem just started.

YOU must find out if the problem is fuel delivery related or electronics related. Start by checking the pump pressure.

Readyheater starting problem


air compressor needs to put out between 3.0 and 3.5 psi of air for proper suction across the nozzle - the nozzle acts as a venturi to create suction or a vacuum.
