You may want to replace the gasket to get a good seal to draw fuel with out air. You could try a gasket eliminator and seal this thing back up. A good auto parts store also sells gasket material where you can make your own new gasket, you need patience and a sharp knife and a punch for the holes.

Ready heater r110 I have replaced nozzle, filers all, cleaned sensor, runs some times for 30 sec shuts down


The R110 is a spark plug heater, as you know. It does not have the sophisticated electronics that the newer heaters have.

My guess: SP heater runs 30 seconds & shuts down- bypassphotocell. If it runs fine, then the photocell is defective.The test is simpleIf the photocell proves to be good follow these troubleshooting tips

Heater runs for 2-3 minutes then shuts off. unplugged to reset and it runs again for less than minute then shuts off again


Clean or replace your photo cell. Make sure your air pressure is set right,Remove your nozzle and blow air thru it . To test your photocell use a muti-meter hooked to two wire and hold flashlight over the end of boot see if ohms increase if not it junk,replace it.

Heater comes on fine runs 5 to 10 minutes and quits. sometimes it doesn't run that long


Are you using old fuel from last year? If so, drain/clean tank. Check/replace fuel filter. Refuel with fresh fuel & test again.

Heater shuts off unexpectedly


I would suspect that either the reset (HA3003 Safety Control) or the photocell (HA3019) is bad. For test purposes only bypass them one at a time- see if the unit ron OK.

R155A Reddy Heater Help!


This is going to be a tough one. You have been thorough, done it right, and it damn sure ought to fire off every time!

There is something that is causing you a problem and don't think that because you put in new parts that you didn't get a bad part. It happens. Not often, but it does happen. I have rec'd nozzles from the factory that had the orifice installed sideways, so, I know it happens.

If the ignitor glows- (it only stays on for 5 seconds, then quits)
If the fuel fogs (not sprays)
If the fuel hits the glowing ignitor
Then it should fire off-- every time.

Now, if the photocell doesn't like what it sees, then the photocell will shut the heater down within 5 seconds, but it at least should have ignited. Right? Unless the photocell or the board are bad. Maybe.

Lift the top, and watch. What's happening. Are you having a fuel problem or an electronics problem? For instance- is the ignitor glowing every time at start up or only sometimes.

Let me know what you find.

Heater shuts down prematurly


If the heater runs fine for the 15 or so minutes without smoke/odor- do this
  1. check for water droplets on bottom of tank
  2. check for restricted fuel filter
  3. test photocell
  4. test safety control (reset)
You don't state whether this is a spark plug heater *or* Hot Surface Ignitor type. I made the assumption you were inquirung about a Spark Plug Heater. Disregard the list if the heater is an HSI type---- troubleshooting is different.

Gas wall heater


the R70ET is not a wall heater but a bullet style torpedo heater. it runs for a while then shuts down. first check that the photocell is clean. you'll need to unbolt the top cover. when pointing it make sure it "sees" the flame in its holder. if it still shuts down replace the photocell. the site www [dot] desatech [dot] com is the same place I get parts from for heaters.
