Both problems soud like fuel delivery problems. Start troubleshooting fuel delivery problems by checking and getting the air pump pressure to specs.

Provided the rotor and vanes are serviceable the pump should produce around 10 psi if you completely close off the airline tubing. If your gauge will not read with the tubing totally restricted, then I would check the relief valve to see if the ball is in first, then the spring, then the screw with the hole. These items should be in the longer of the 2 bosses. If no pressure reading at this time you either have a broken rotor or a defective gauge.

If you get some pressure with the tubing restricted, but there is not enough, then use soapy water to find the air leak. If there is a crack in the plastic end cover- replace it.

How to set the pump pressure

There are about 5 or 6 things that can cause what you have described. And there are the same amount of solutions for those things. To make it easy, I have included a link to the Owners Manual for the R155D, that has a good troubleshooting and solution guide. You can download and print the manual for future reference.

Hope this helps you solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

The knobs on the back are for adjusting the pump pressure. But, that may not be the problem. It could be old or bad kerosene. Not enough fresh air where you're using the heater. The heater may need cleaning. Incomplete combustion.

To help you further troubleshoot and solve the problem, I have provided a link to the Owners Manual for your heater. You can download and print it for future reference.

hb1law,

Several things could cause this. 1) water in the fuel 2) a bad thermostat 3) broken solder joints on the control board. If you are absolutely sure that the fuel pressure is correct (4.5 psi) then I would check the items that I have listed and correct any problems. This should solve your problem but if it does not go to http://www.reddyparts.com as they have an extensive diagnosis library and they would be the people you would need to get the parts from.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating.
