Question about Reddy Heater-30,000 BTU Propane Forced-Air Heater

Open Question

I have a ReddyHeater rlp30a. Just bought it from a garage asle, its brand new, never used, can tell just by looking at it, nothing even burnt, no rust. I cant get it to light. I have a good spark when pushing the ignitor button. I can smell propane and hear it coming out when I push the pilot button in. When I plug it in the fan is moving great. all appears to be correct.(I dont do it in that order by the way, just tested everything) But when I do it in the correct order, I dont really smell propane and it never lights. any idea what could be wrong? as I said and the guy said its brand new, never used. What can I test?? no spider webs, checked flow. Thanks!

SOURCE: propane heater wont work

Sounds like a dirty pilot orfice. Or you may need to replace the thermocouple. The thermocouple generates voltage from the heat of the pilot and energizes a magnet in the gas valve and when you release the button it should stay on. Once the pilot is established, the main burner should work...There is no primer function....cheers.

SOURCE: pilotlight will not light, getting spark, but no propane.

make sure you have the gas valve knob on turned to pilot while pressing that down while pushing the spark it should light or it is tripped on a safety like rollout switch or oxygen depletion sensor if equipped which all ventless heaters are

Was running and motor just stopped i bought it new so know it hasnt been used much

you should be covered by warranty if it still new.
If you know the brand, model you can perhaps look for the service manual to look for fuse, blown components or a spare part.

As it's a brand new vehicle, it will be covered under the Manufacturer's Warranty. Call the Garage that you bought the vehicle at and tell them to come and pick it up and have the fault fixed under warranty. PLEASE DO NOT try to fix anything yourself and do not let anyone else other than the Manufacturer's representatives work on the vehicle otherwise the Manufacturer may void the Warranty.

Burnt CD reading for Pioneer DEH-P1Y

Some manufacturers set their products up so that copied cd's won't work, used to have a pc that did the same, it's to do with how the info is laid on the cd itself. So depending on the spacing of data, some lasers just won't read the information. Sorry to be the bringer of bad news :(

Bought a new house that had a craftsman opener model 139.53990 made in '03 set aside in the garage. Tried hooking it up, bought a universal remote and got it programmed. I push the button the lights...

There are no fuses in the opener. Pull the logic board (the end where all the white wires go) and check for burnt or missing traces on the printed circuit board. This is not uncommon where there are electrical storms.

I was going to plug in my tascam dp-01 digital porta studio when it stopped working. and there was a sell of something burning. we looked at it opened it up to see if a fuse had blown but nothing was...

This product is expensive and faulty. When the only help you get is an excuse, you know you have bought the wrong brand name. Sorry friend, I did the same and received the same bogus explanation. Basically you and I threw 500 bucks out the door. True Shame. That should be the name of their next model. Ha. Except it isn't funny.

TV screen went negative. Brand new TV

I would use the warranty for this problem. The part that need to be replaced can be somewhat expensive.
With the credit card statement, you can use that as a receipt.
