have you checked the bearings? oiling the motor with wd-40 creates a gummy mess that binds the motor. the lubricants in wd-40 are solvent based. once this "vehicle" dries up what's left is a silicone product that dries out. use a dependable light machine oil like 3 in 1 oil or a sewing machine oil

You have fuel and spark but it won't ignite...
The problem must either be the spark or the fuel - the ignition unit isn't an unusual failure so is the spark gap correct; if there is a failing spark there is a temptation to reduce the size of the spark gap.

The fuel, paraffin or diesel isn't very volatile so it must be presented to the spark in a form that is easily burned and that means a very finely atomised spray - problems with the spray are common with older heaters, usually caused by small particles of dirt or rust either making the spinner stick or freeze or wearing the fit between the spinner and jet and the jet orifice and even if the jet is in good condition it is important to have the correct air pressure that is checked and adjusted whenever the heater is serviced.

Paraffin or kerosene has a fairly high content of dissolved water and when the inside of a fuel tank is unprotected steel, the fuel can cause some rusting...
A thorough internal clean and refill with filtered fuel will usually restore performance for the season.

Apparently the photocell needs to see a flame of the correct colour or it will shut down so the nozzle and spinner has to be in very good condition - diesel might be clean but is the inside of the tank clean?
The fit between the spinner and nozzle is so very close it can stick with very small particles.

Can't speak for the Reddy Heater but a bad spark transformer seems a very common problem with that type of heater - ensure the spark gap is correct.

Never try and light a furnace when you have a glow coil ignitor. Even if you managed to do so it would reach high temp and limit would stop it. . trained technician can do this but why? If your glow coil is glowing constantly after start up than mast likely you have a control board problem. Call a technician to troubleshoot it

Jerry, you may have a low pressure output on the air pump behind the electric fan motor. There are 2 plastic plugs at the rear cover where the filter is. One is just a plug. If you have a low pressure air gauge say 10-20 psi max, you can remove this plug and screw it in that hole. Do not over tighten the gauge. The other plug increases air pressure when you turn it clockwise, counter clockwise to decrease. this model usually is set around 6 - 6.5 psi. If the pressure does not increase, it may be time to remove the rear pump cover and investigate the filters, rotor & carbon blades.

Possible the thermocouple bulb has slipped out of position and isn't being heated as it should. If it is a model with a pilot light, perhaps it is blocked.

The thermocouple is probably the most likely culprit.
