You should be able to both see and hear the spark when this unit starts.
If you do not have spark the first thing you want to do in to clean and check the grounds on the heater.

You also need to make sure you have a good ground connection between the botton on the heater and the main section of the heater.

The spark on this unit need a good ground to complete the series and give you the spark required to start the heater.

If after you check this you can still not get spark you may need to replace the DSI Spark Controller.

Thank you

My pro 100 does not light. Igniter heats up and

The photo eye shuts the unit down if the burner does not burn correctly on startup, ie.if the eye does not see light prior to tiiming out. I would say since it is shutting down, it is working OK. While you say there is plenty of fuel, you do not know if there is the correct ratio of air to fuel. The most common problem on these heaters is the mix. I have a tip at which explains exactly what you need to do to correct this and where to get the parts to do it. Let me know if you need anymore help.

150,000 BTU propane Reddy Heater shuts off after ignition

Is there a frost line on your LP tank, if so you may need to replace the tank with a larger tank or refill your tank. This can happen if the tank your using is too low or too small (use 100 lb tank or greater). If there is no frost line it may be an issue with the thermocouple. The manufacturer offers a service manual and owner's manuals on there site. This should assist you... Thank you

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)?
