    Also check filter down inside tank. Also you may have large chunks of trash that will not fit into the filter. when heater shuts off it drop the trash and when you start it back up it picks the trash up again causing the symtoms you desribe.

I have a 60,000 btu Reedy Heater runs 5-10 min then shuts off restarts black puff of smoke bad plug ??


Check the fuel filter on the units as well as the inlet and outlet filters on the back of the motor.

Watch the nose cone and see if the end starts to loose the glowing orange color before it quits.
If the unit slowly looses the color then you have a fuel problem but if the unit just quits at full heat then you could have a electrical problem.

Typically the spark plugs on these heaters don't go bad.

When filled with kerosene then plugged in, the heater will kick on for about 3 seconds and the fan will run but it will not ignite, then it shuts off. reddy heater 55, 55000btu. runs on K1 or fuel oil.

After I plug it in it will run for about 5 seconds then shut off? why?


I would clean or replace the pump it looks like a square box with a fuel lines going to it,and I would check for spark from your ignighter

Lights and runs for 30 seconds then goes out and trips overload switch


Check to see if the pump is leaking some where.Then clean the pump out if there is no leak.Are you burning kerosine?K 1 will give you no problems,but diesel will cause a lot of problems,some reddy heaters can burn both,and some you can not,so look at the warnings.

What is the model number? Could be a number of things, depending on which technology is used on your particular 55,000 btu heater.
