All of this model heater use a triac to turn on the motor. The buzzing you hear is because the triac is only turned on half the time due to a component defect on the control.

Replace the control.

or

If you are good with a soldering iron, replace the component labeled "OC2" on the circuit board. This is the optical isolator that caused the triac to "half-wave". Component is a MOC3023

My Dayton 110,000 btu kerosene torpedo heater... The fan kicks on for a couple secs then kicks off it seems as it's not getting any fuel what should I do


Could be the Flame out sensor cutting the power to the electrics and therefore the forced air fan. It forces the heater to shut off should the flame extinguish. It might also be the temperature limit control which also turns the heater off if the internal temperature rises to an unsafe level. If either of these two possibilities the unit may need a service.

Heater used once 3 yrs ago. Now wont start.


When the heater hums is the fan turning. If it is I would add more Kerosene. There is no shut off but the Kerosene is sucked out a tube from the top of the tank. This tube does not reach quite all the way to the bottom of the tank. Your heater should hold about 9 gallons if it is empty. A couple of gallons would give it plenty to run though. Let me know.

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)?
