Take the top cover off and see if the heater will run ok. If it does then your problem involves the air system on the unit. Check your lines and filters.

generally water or air in the line will interrupt the flame momentarily.

I need to buy some parts for my guardian kerosene heater 150 btu. Where should i go

Reddy Heating &... | Answered on May 15, 2014

This sounds as if it is a problem with either a partial fuel blockage or a low air pump pressure. Low air pump pressure could be caused by cracked or damaged air line from compressor to burner head, or the plastic end that holds the air filters has a hair line crack, letting the pressure away. You may need to inspect thwe plastic end under a bright lame and flex it between youe fingers and thunbs to see the damage, look around the outside, across the middle and near the bolt holes and adjuster. Damage to the nozzle housing or the rubber nozzle seal , letting air into the fuel line and escaping, could also cause the problem. You need to inspect everything carefully.

the fuel pump may be plugged up and that will overload the motor..also if the flame on does not occur the unit will shut down for safety..need to check the fuel nozzle and see if it sprays while trying to start.. if not it needs cleaned/replaced.. can be cleaned with carb spray and wiped off .. remove and look at the filter in the back of it.. may be blockked up..

Cannot answer well without specifics of what was changed. Did you blow the fuel lines clear with air pressure?

Empty the tank to be sure there is no water in the bottom.

Yes diesel can be used in torpedo heaters, but you should only use #1 diesel or #1 fuel oil or #1 kerosene. #2 fuels are dirty and will crud up the heater faster. The other problem with diesel fuel is that it gels at very cold temperature. Anti-gel additives are available.

Are you sure there is not water in the tank? Fuel pressure should almost never need adjusted.

Reddy Heating &... | Answered on Jan 24, 2014

you have a flame sensor. check to see if in the flame or or has any signs of cracks or chips

If this is one of those liquid fuel heaters, change the nozzle, the filter, and clean the pump strainer. Bleed the air out of the fuel line by opening the small nipple (in the fuel line on the side of the pump) while attempting to start it until the fuel comes out clear and not sudsy, then close the nipple if the appliance had run out of fuel prior to you attempting to start it There's no spark plug in it, but a 10,000 volt ignitor.

Unit goes under sure heat name also.
My unit emitted unburnt gas smell the minute pilot started,
and was annoying during burner operation.
I discovered they built unit with primary pilot that had 2 ports.
They used LP and sealed off natural gas,instead turning lp/nat
knob on back activates second pilot for natural gas use.
This means natural gas goes thru LP pilot orifice and burns
slightly off during normal natural gas use(by design).
The unused natural gas orifice has 1 air mix hole and the LP orifice
has 2 air mix holes.
I carefully plugged 1 of the holes in the LP orifice and suddenly
pilot gas flame seated correctly on orifice port.Gone was the
unburnt odor of natural gas.
The typical flame in a flame appearance now was exhibited by
the small pilot,secondary pilot remained consistent with manual
Of course, to use with LP I would have to open blocked air mix
hole in addition to the other changes per manual.
Hope this helps someone with similar condition.

That's the safety; it's supposed to do that to keep you from getting blown up!
Did you follow these instructions?:
Does the power light come on?
Does the igniter heat up for 5 seconds?

Reddy Heating &... | Answered on Jan 24, 2013

No - diesel fuel is NOT the same as kerosene. Kerosene is #1, regular diesel is #2. They are not interchangeable.

You need to check the nozzle for clogs and also check the fuel filter. Let me know what you find and I will tell you some other things to check.

Reddy Heating &... | Answered on Jan 04, 2012

That generally indicates that the filters need cleaning, as well as dust or dirt in the heater. Without the cover, it can breathe. With the cover on, it can't. If you can provide me with the Model Number of your Reddy Heater, I will send you a copy of the Owners Manual, if you need one.
