These heaters have several things that happen to them while in storage. I do a yearly check on mine and it goes like this. Open the fuel tank and tilt the heater to see fuel at the filler hole, look at the fuel and tank you are looking for any water in the tank. Condensation is usually the culprit, what I do is drain the tank in to a clean five gallon bucket and the fuel floats on top of the water. If you see water use a rag and try to dry out the tank as best as you can. You can also siphon off the fuel for reuse just be careful not to siphon to much and get the water again. Next remove the top section of the heater tube, this exposes all of the internal burner parts. Locate the burner tray and remove it so you can access the fuel nozzle. Remove the nozzle, they say you cannot clean these but I say different. You need a Q-tip, tooth pick and carb cleaner and clean it up carefully so you do not damage the nozzle. Behind the nozzle is a screen these like to corrode so clean it real good too. Put the nozzle assembly back together, inspect your fuel lines for cracks, dry rot or holes and replace if necessary. At the bottom of the assembly there is a sensor for flame these collect carbon deposits,dirt and the occasional homeless insect. Clean this with windex and a soft terry cloth rag. Put the burner tray back together. Trace the fuel lines back to where they come thru the heater tube and now remove the side cover. You will find the fuel line and an in line filter remove the filter and clean this with a compressor and blow gun by blowing air backwards thru the filter. This instantly cleans the filter, now put it back together after inspecting the fuel lines,and replacing it if necessary. Put the side cover back on and go to the fuel/ air pump on the back of this there should be an air filter usually foam, clean this with dawn dish soap and dry really good before putting it back in.Inspect and clean igniter while you are inside the heater, then put the top section back together. Now you are ready to plug your heater back in and test it. If all went well you should be heating like it did when it was new. Just a tip for you is to look at the fuel coming out the nozzle it should be a fog not droplets, if droplets your nozzle needs changed. Pay attention to spray angle and GPH rating very very important.

My reddy heater comes on and burns perfectly for up to 30 minutes then it shuts off and blows smoke for a couple of seconds before it completely shuts down.

This doesn't help. There at least 4 60k Reddy Heaters models -some are spark plug heaters, some have the new Hot Surface Ignitor technology. All heaters have specific model. Without you knowing the model I can't help, sorry.

Pro 110, runs 10 min., blows white smoke ,shuts off

the first thing you need to do is go back to useing K1 kerosene, diesel fuel not only burns dirty but also has a tendency to gel up in cold weather which could be makeing it hard for the heater to draw the proper amount of fuel. To reset the pressure you will need a gage, it should run at about 6-7 psi. you can order a pressure gage from mr. heater online, they are by far the cheapest I have found as they are the actual manufacturer or call 1-800-251-0001

Blowing smoke immediately prior to auto-shut-off

Try a new CAD falme sensor, or high limit control, both very cheap.

All Pro 170t kerosene heater is throwing raw fuel out the burner

It sounds like it is currently working .. is that right? Or does it only work if you let it sit for an hour, still? The blue smoke probably is from the residual fuel not burnt when it "threw raw fuel out the end" some the fuel probably drained to a low point ..outside of the combustion chamber and then may have ignited after shut down.. to cause the blue smoke out the back... when you turned it off.

If when your starting it up... it doesn't start the first time.. wait 10seconds then try again.. noting what it apparently does.. and doesn't do. does it just 'through fuel for 5 seconds.. does the fan spin .. and push air at the same time when its starting? If yes for both, does the ignitor ignite the fuel/air mixture, briefly then it shuts off.. ?? Hope this line of thinking helps you out
