Get online to You and download a manual there.
There are two ports on the black box behind the fan motor. One is just a plug where you should connect a pressure guage. The other is like a relief valve that keeps the pressure in the black box constant. The air goes to the fitting behind the fuel nozzle. This fitting is an eductor. The air flowing through it creates a low pressure which then draws the fuel to the nozzle. The air pressure and therefore the amount of airflow controls how much full will be drawn in. More pressure, more fuel. Less pressure, less full. To lower the pressure, back the screw out that has the hole in the center.

Take the top of the heater off. It should be about 6-8 screws holding it on. Be careful around the fan and plug the heater in. Check for the igniter sparking if it is the spark plug type or glowing if it is the HSI(hot surface igniter) type. If it isn't, check the gap on the spark plug and you will have to check the transformer for it also. If it is a HSI, make sure it is broken. This type is very brittle and easily broken. Next use a flashlight to look for fuel spraying from the nozzle. If it isn't, the fuel nozzle may be clogged. You can use a very small piece of wire to push through the nozzle to clear it. Also check the fuel filter. You can check for water in the fuel tank too. If it's really cold it could be frozen blocking the fuel flow. If you still don't have fuel flow, check the air filters. There are 2 on the back of the fan motor. You will have to remove the black cover to see one of them. Let me know what you find if you don't get it fixed.

Model# WP071107R, Serial# 10/2007, Reddy Heater 150,000 BTU The fuel tank has a crack. Where can I get a new tank?

You can try reddyheater .com or try a two part epoxy. Clean well with acetone, sand paper to create good adhesion then JB Weld or any other good grade epoxy. This will work in a bind until you locate a new 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... Thank you
