This is a common problem with Reddy Heaters after they get a few years on them. Your air/fuel mixture needs to be set. I have a tip at http://www.fixya.com/support/r4124129-yearly_maintenance_reddy_heaters which explains the problem, where to get parts and how to complete the repair.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the generous rating!!

RK70N Stationary diesel engine won't continue to run.


you could have a stuck valve. Cam pushes valve stem to open valve and the spring should cause valve to close as the rocker comes up. Or if the valve is burned or otherwise covered in "junk" it will not seal closed b the spring action.

Masada pu ran out of gas will not only if i prime, for a few seconds


Fuel pump is not running (if electric) or floats stuck. Outside of those, hole in fuel line, possibly even line in tank. My old one had a sight glass on the float bowl where you could see if fuel was in it.

Black smoke coming from exhaust occasionally.


Black smoke is indicative of carbon or incomplete combustion caused by either poor ignition (weak spark) or too much fuel (choke setting). Check out these areas.

Need diagram of a force 150hp outboard motor


To winterize a Force outboard you should start the engine and remove the fuel line. Remove the air box and while the engine is running rev up the engine a bit and spray the fogging oil into the throat of each carberator when the engine is about to run out of fuel. keep spraying the fogging oil until you see thick smoke coming from the exhaust area. The exhaust comes out of the center of the prop. When you see the blue smoke then keep spraying and let off the throttle and choke the engine so it dies. Stabilize or get rid of your fuel in the fuel tank and you can let it sit like that for the winter. Leave the outboard in the down position so that any water will drain by gravity out of the prop. When you want to use it next spring just hook up fresh fuel, squeeze the fuel bulb and fire the engine up. It will smoke for a few seconds until that fogging oil burns out of there but it will be ready to run.

You may want to check the ignition system. The smoke could be because of unburnt fuel. You may be running on less then 4 cylinders. Check if all spark plugs are firing. You may also want to use a scanner if there are error codes found in its ECU.

Runs a few minutes and quits


hi this could be 3 problems ? no spark so vapour not igniting so excess vapour coming out as smoke, if it ignites stays on for a while goes out the flame probe is faulty, fuel filter is blocked needs new one , the fuel pipe going into tank has a non return vavle in it ( its a plastic ball in line with pipe ) if this is missing or stuck it allows fuel to drain back into tank and causes a air lock in heater causing vapour into chamber result in smoke coming out of end, as a quick fix for that you can fill pipe with fuel bend it so its traps in fuel like fire place pipe in tank when stopping fire stick mole gripps on pipe so next time fuel is there ready
