Question about Reddy HD30 Heater

1 Answer

Connecting Reddy HD30 to RV Propane Tank

I'm trying to convert this heater so I can tie it into my propane tank mounted on my RV. I've made a hose, properly sealed and using brass, that feeds two lines. One feeds my outdoor BBQ three burner Expedition 3 grill and it works GREAT! The one feeding the heater though doesn't seem to work right. I get some blue flame on the burner for a couple seconds and then it goes out. Any ideas?

Can you get water in LP lines when filling RV w/ propane? Frig quit on propane,worked on electric. Had filled w/ propane two days earlier. mechanic found oily water in line; range still worked.


Yes water can do compensation build up in your propane tank. Some tanks have a drain pit on bottom reclaim propane and open the pit. If your does reclaim the propane and drain tank. If not reclaim propane and remove tank then remove filler valve turn tank over drain access water leave tank up side down over night. Put fill valve back on and mount tank. After lines are back on turn stove on leave on for 48 hours. Turn valves off and refill tank. Best of luck.

I'm temporarily staying in our RV while our house is re-furbished. The water heater is only working intermittently. Can anybody help me?


RV water heaters are mounted against an outside wall. Go outside and look for a removable cover that has a mesh vent installed.
Open this cover and the water heater should be inside.

If the water heater is propane your propane tank may be low of fuel. Also very cold weather may not let the propane produce adequate vapor to fuel the water heater. A low level of propane can make this problem worse.

If the water heater is electric, you may have too large a wattage draw from other appliances, when the water heater is trying to heat. Turn off items such as hair blowers, AC, and Microwave when the water heater is on. If a generator is providing the electricity it may not have enough output. If shore power is providing the electricity you need at least 30 AMPs.

Superflue. Why doesn't it stay lit?


If this is in a RV there is a propane monitoring valve. It will close and cut of the propane if it is not being used for a period of time or if there is a leak. The valve is mounted between the propane tank and the first appliance, usually inside the RV.

My reddy heater RLP 100 would not stay lit after I released the ignitor switch so I changed the thermocouple and, the thermal unit switch. The heater will ignite but when I release the knob the flame goes...


A couple of things come to mind:

Restricted air flow. Check heater inlet and outlet. Remove any obstructions.

If the heater has been used in a dusty environment, it may simply need a thorough cleaning.

Inadequate propane supply. Make sure there's enough gas in the tank to facilitate combustion.

If the tank is full, turn of the tank valve and disconnect the hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose. Turn the tank valve on very, very slowly, until it's fully open and try relighting and operation of the heater.

If you have misplaced your Owners Manual, you can find it at www.deastech.com

Hope this helps to solve your problem.

Lights while holding primer/pilot button then runs out of propane within seconds. If you wait a minute it builds up then does the same thing like the propane tank is empty but it is full.


Turn off the propane tank and disconnect the heater hose from the tank. Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the heater hose/regulator to the propane t. Turn the tank valve on very, very slowly until it's completely open again. Now, try lighting the heater. If you are using a 20lb LP grill type tank, that should solve your problem.

Hope that helped.

I have a 40,000 BTU propane reddy heater. I just refilled the tank and attached it to the heater like I normally do but now when I start it it will run fine then it will flare up and shoot out orange flame...


Did they over fill the tank and you are getting pure liquid to the heater..... Sounds like when you use a propane bottle hand torch and tip it up side down the flame turns orange and goes out. Also the regulator vent may have gotten plugged with dirt or ice. May try and bleed some of the propane pressure off of the top of the tank....... But make sure you have it outside and plenty of ventaltion and no open flame any where...... Propane is lighter than air so it settles down on the ground at the lowest point.....hope this helps..... Or you could take it back to your suppler and get a different tank.

150,000 BTU propane Reddy Heater shuts off after ignition


Is there a frost line on your LP tank, if so you may need to replace the tank with a larger tank or refill your tank. This can happen if the tank your using is too low or too small (use 100 lb tank or greater). If there is no frost line it may be an issue with the thermocouple. The manufacturer offers a service manual and owner's manuals on there site. This should assist you... www.desatech.com Thank you

The propane tank could be overfilled. Loosen the bleed screw and let out the propane until there is no more liquid being released. If the tank is overfilled then the liquid will cause the gas regulator to close gas flow.

Try a little longer, sometimes it takes a full minute to heat the thermocouple. Check and make sure thermocouple is in flame. If all this is ok. then your going to have to change the valve.
