Reddy heater 110btu kerosene starts and shuts off?

I would say the thermostat is bad after reading your problem over several times. There is no reason to suspect a wiring problem, and I strongly suggest you don't bypass anything! A fire or explosion could result. Replace the thermostat as a probable cause.

Ignition problems

what kind of ignition is it? spark or hot surface igniter? the photocell just detects the flame. it causes the controller to go into lockout if it doesn't detect a flame. a hot surface igniter uses 120 volts to operate, again off the controller.

check your cad cell. replace this. it is not detecting a flame. replacing the cad cell will fix your problem. when it shuts down it goes into lockout.
