Question about Reddy Heater-170,000 BTU Kerosene Deluxe
My heater will sometimes stay on for several minutes . but then it shuts down for no reason , I let it stay off for a minute and turn on it starts up and then it might run it might not for very long.
and what are the two adjustments screw heads on the back of heater .
You don't state whether this heater has the old style spark plug technology or the newer Hot Surface Ignitor technology. Troubleshooting will be different, depending on the style of heater, because the electronics are different.
You ask "what are the two adjustments screw heads on the back of heater". As stated by tros1 these are A. an air pump adjustment screw, and B. a pressure relief valve.
Both technologies require correct pump pressure in order to deliver the fuel at the proper rate. For a pressure setting video
Reply with the model number and/or the specific ignition technology and maybe we can help.

First clean the filters and the nozzle.
One of the screw heads is a plug to install a pressure guage.
The other is the fuel pressure adjusting screw.
