Motor fails to start when cold
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

I have a reddy heater 50000 BTU, it is getting fuel and spark but will not ignite. What could be the problem?
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.
