Air cooled engine ok ,
When the engine shut off did it white smoke out the garden it could be the head gasket
Low compression and it won't start poor compression and it might start but run poorly stall easily and white smoke produce because of unburnt fuel escaping into hot exhausts and vaporizing

I have a dayton 30,000 btu heater ,,it will run


If you are pressing a small round switch with a tiny button in the center...means a bad heat exchanger. The heat from the exchangeris going where it is not supposed to and tripping a roll out switch. Have the exchanger checked for cracks or holes.....check vent pipe to make sure not plugged

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

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!
