The line from the pump to the nozzel should go inthe front fitting and the one from the tank goes to the backfitting. If either of these have cracks in them or do not fit tightly over the fittings it will not build enough pressure and burn. You may also check the filters mainly the output filter as this will also effect pump pressure. I don't have as much experiance with that brand so I can't be sure exactly about the pressure. I think it should be 3.5 to 4 Psi. If this doesn't help please email me and I will find out for sure.

Depending on how old your heater is, you may bay be able to download the Owners Manual from the Reddy Heater Home Page website. Reddy Heater was made by DESA International (now out of business). Another company bought the Reddy Heater part of the business, so they are still being manufactured.

sounds like the thermal coupling is starting to go bad and it is shutting down the gas valve.
replace it and see if it improves the units performance.

I thought I answered this-- let me try again:

This was some research I did on FixYa.com-- see if it helps:

Reddy Heater - Troubleshooting Torpedo Heaters


If you brought the heater to our shop, and gave the above description, the first thing that we would do is check the air pump pressure.

Then, if the pressure is correct (not just close) we would check the photocell for signs of insect nest or something similar blocking the view of the eye.

You must troubleshoot to find out if the problem is fuel related or electronics related- maybe these tips will help (click for link).

Plugged nozzle? Fuel filter clogged? look for the simple things.

Reddy... | Answered on Jan 23, 2011


You will need to replace the pilot safety or commonly called Thermocouple. It is the probe located in the flame disc and works its way back to the gas valve. Remove it and take it to a good hardware store. You may have to purchase a longer one but you can keep it coiled to make it fit. Real easy to replace.
