Hi,Many Reddy heaters do not have a thermostat installed on them. The most common way to control them is with a thermostat that the heater plugs into and then the thermostat plugs into the outlet.
Some models may have a thermostat, but if you do have one it is not the little adjustment screws in would be a rather large dial type knob.ere is a tip that tells about the little screws and how to use them...

Ready Heater 60 wont start. Fan runs for about 5 seconds and then stops.


Check the wires for good connections. If the connections are good, then check the adjustment for the ignitor (sparker or glowplug).

Have a 155000 btu ready heater


It sounds like the unit is tripping the breaker because the breaker is not rated high enough to handle the heaters power usage! If its not that then it may very well be the thermostat needs replaced in unit!
Test at a friends house to see if its your system or the unit!
