Check the air pressure. Also check the fuel filter and the nozzle to make sure there is no blockage. The air pressure should be 3.4#.

Reddy Heater 170T works fine with the cover off but will not ignite with the cover on.


First, heaters with Hot Surface Ignitor technology MUST have the air pump pressure set to factory specs. The onboard computer will not allow any deviation. Proper fuel delivery depends on it.

Now, if the pump pressure is correct, there are no leaks between the pump and the nozzle and no vac leaks on the fuel line, the 90% of the time the problem is a worn nozzle. Desa recommended annual replacement of the nozzle simply because of the wear factor.

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.

remove the cover and check for spark at plug when plugged in if no spark check spark plug gor proper gap, or defective transformer electronic ignitor if you see spark check for proper pump pressure and restricted fuel flow due to seal leak, filter blocked and restriction in nozzle. I would check for defective photocell first for soot/dirt if dirty wipe with clean damp cloth remove photocell from heater and connect ohmeter on the 1000 ohl (rx1k) scale. Hold the lens up to a light source (60 wtt bulb, with the lens of the photocell pointed towards the source the resistance of the meter should be low by clocking off the light source by putting thumb over opening of cell the resistance on meter should be high, replace photo cell if a change in resistance is not observed during this test, let me know if you need more assistance

Ignitor lights, fan comes on,wont start ,has new fuel,


My guess is that your statement "won't start" refers to the flame (lack of). If this is the case then ask yourself if the unit is getting fuel. If NO fuel, check the pump rotor- it may be broken. If SOME fuel, then set the pump pressure. Air pump pressure is directly relayed to proper fuel flow. Instructions http://www.reddyparts.com/pressure.htm

No start i cant see ignitor get brite red dont seem like im getting fuel


If the ignitor isn't glowing it isn't a fuel problem. It may be a pressure switch or bad ignitor.

Not getting fuel after air and fuel filter maintenance.


If the maintenance procedure included anything that required you to dis-assemble the air pump then you must simply re-set the pump pressure in order for fuel to be pumped into the combustion chamber. . It's an easy procedure. Instructions for setting the pump pressure
