There is an igniter module and then the igniter electrodes (check the air gap) that produces the spark to start the fuel burning, both could be defective.

Starts to run. Then pops CB in about 2 seconds. Ignition is OK. I think it momentarily lights off. REDDY HEATER made by DESA of Bowling Green, KY


Hi, when a circuit trips that quik, it indicates a dead short somewhere or even a motor drawing way to much amps for the breaker to handle. If this heater is a forced air type, try and find the wiring that controls the blower motor and disconnect it for just a few minutes to test it. You may want to do this with other control componants one at a time, just by- pass each one by unplugging or disconnecting each one and start it. If the breaker holds when you do this, you will then know which part is causing the breaker to trip. Keep me posted on your progress.

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!
