Question about Reddy Heater-170,000 BTU Kerosene Deluxe
Its always worked then i pluged it in today and it just buzzed for a sec and then stoped. i on plug it and try it again and does the same thing please help if you can
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.
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
