Hello,

Yes it loses volitility, but i think you have water that you are trying to burn. Completely empty the tank and go get new kerosene. The can you have could have water in it as well. Water gathers in any tank or can, from condensing water over the spring, summer and fall months the heater is not used. With a fuel change you should be as good as the first day you used your heater.

Hope all goes well, and stay warm.

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.

When I turn on the igniter comes but won't do the burner flame


The heater will not ignite, but this problem could have several causes! Do you mean that the motor is running, fuel at the nozzle but although there is a spark, the fuel does not ignite? This could be caused by low pump pressure, loss of spark could be the HT cables, or the ignition transformer. Is the electrode in good order?? An intermittent spark could be faulty electrodes or ignition transformer. Is the fuel clean and the correct type?? Is the fuel contaminated with water, is the fuel filter clean?? Dirty fuel could cause this problem.

Keeps cutting out.


Hi Anonymous, could be bad spark plug, bad plug wire, ignition coil, ignition module, or my personal favorite wiring, loose or bad connections. If your fuel injected could be CPS or MAP sensor going south. Good luck

I hava an All Pro 65,000 BTU heater. It was working fine a week ago. The igniter glows, fuel mists but doesn't light off then shuts down. Ideas?


I am sure you have confirmed that the fuel is fresh and good, no water in it, etc.--
It is kerosene, not #2 Diesel fuel, right?

And the shutting down is good, if the flame does NOT ignite--- :-)
So we have to figure out why the fuel is not getting hot enough to ignite?


Question-- is the oil spray passing close enough to the ignitor?
And this unit does NOT use SPARK to ignite?, correct? --
for most of these heaters have spark ignition.. I am learning all the time, too!

How about checking the fuel pressure. and the air -- is it correct?
Check with your manual how to check and adjust.

After testing these tings, let us know what you learned

I have an all pro 60,000 btu flex fuel heater. all pro went out business. i need a new igniter .... can anyone help me find this part ?


Try www.desatech.com. From the main page, click on kerosene heaters. Some igniters should be at the top of the page that comes up. See if one matches yours.

I have a 60,000 btu kerosene heater its getting fuel and the glow plug turns on but still wont fire up n shuts down. what would cause this?


Well it is getting fuel but is it atomized in very small droplet form? If so is your igniter close enough to ignite the fuel? You see these spray a very fine conical mist under high pressure, if the mist is not defined or conical it sprays past the igniter. If it is fine and cone shaped it could be the positioning of your igniter. Please check both by removing the top section of the heater and watch what is going on in there. My thoughts are a bad nozzle and if you replace it pay attention to spray angle and GPH rating printed on the side of the nozzle.

100,000 redi heater wont fire just blower fan runs


The igniter is most likely bad.Make sure the igniter is not working,and the pump for the fuel is working,one,or the other is not working,if it is the fuel,order a new pump kit,with impelar,and if it is the igniter,replace it with a new one.
