I have reddy pro 170 i plug it in , the fan & igniter comes on for 10 to 15 seconds then shuts off ,blew through fuel line and nozzle still same result, i do see fuel mist coming out nozzle ,i dont k


You must make sure the mist is not to close to the igniter . If it is it wont be misty enough to ignite. And make sure its in the path of the mist. If its new return it to the store.

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

I have a Reddy heater pro 155.


Check all of your air filters but most likely it's the CAD flame sensor.

Reddy heater 115 just turns on then shuts off


a new flame sensor is in order, if you have spark and it blows fuel then thats the answer. you can get one thet will fit from Mr. Heater for 3 bucks. the wires are different so just splice the to your old wire harness, there is no wrong way to hook them up.

Blowing smoke immediately prior to auto-shut-off


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

Reddy Heater will not ignite flame


Please answer the following questions. There are several folks on the board that can help but we need to know some vital information so we can get started. Answer these, if you can:
  1. Which Pro 110 do you have. We need the exact model number. Pro 110 is a series of heaters.
  2. Does the heater have a spark plug or a glowbar (HSI)?
  3. When the motor runs is it pumping fuel?
  4. When the motor runs is the spark plug firing (or glowbar glowing)?

My best guess is that you are are connecting to your AC receptacle with an extention cord that is too small. The Reddy Heater contains a computer that will shut the unit off if it cannot pull enough amps from your service. The longer the cord the higher the loss from receptacle to unit. This loss can be reduced by increasing the size of your extention cord. I run a 100' 10/2 cord.

Hope this helps!

Does your heater use the older spark plug technology or the newer Hot Surface Ignitor (HSI) technology?

Without this critical information about all this technician can do is guess.

My best guess at this time would be either water in the fuel or a restricted fuel filter.
