I want you to inspect the fuel tank, you are looking for water that may have entered while in storage. Condensation builds from storing them and it can duplicate what you are saying here. What I did was to empty the fuel in a clean five gallon bucket and observe, fuel is lighter than water so it floats to the top water sinks to the bottom. If water is present please try to dry out the tank the best you can by soaking it up with a rag. You can siphon off the fuel just be careful not to get the water. If no water is present check to see how the igniter is positioned in conjunction to the angled spray of atomized fuel.You may have to bend it in a little closer to the fuel.

cut a half inch off the end of the all the hoses you can see and then try it again I had mine crack on the back side and it would **** air.

Its not getting enough air to burn with the cover on. See if you can figure out how to adjust the air flow.

The oil lines that run from tank to furnace is acting like a guitar string. As oil is being pumped through the pipe, it is humming. Try placing an old rug on the tank to see if it absorbs the hum.

Check the foam filters located in the back, their is also a primary air adjustment slot in the back try adjusting that each time you fire it to see if you can get it to stay on.

Can you see the fuel oil coming out of the nossle? If
not clean it. If it has a cad cell that could be bad or dirty, you might have to bypass it to see if that is the

It sounds more like airflow and too high of a temp. The fan blades and return vent side must be very clean to keep this big guy pushing the btus out of the heater. A restriction of any kind could cause this overheating situation causing it the shut itself down. If you are confident that air is not the problem, make sure the nozzle that the kerosene comes out of is clean also.

Reddy HEATER... | Answered on Jan 09, 2010

Take air preassure from an air hose to turn the fan blades to loosen everything up. Time for afull service, like change the vanes in the pump, 3- filters fuel--2 air.

Do you have a schematic?

Reddy HEATER... | Answered on Dec 06, 2009

The i unit is a forced air Kerosene heater and if you are not experienced in the repair of this unit, I would really suggest having the unit serviced by a certified technician.
If when you plug in the unit and try to power up the unit, and as you say, " nothing happens ".
The unit has a forced air blower, a thermostat, and a ignore.
If any of the above are not working correctly, the unit will not start, as these are all safety backups.
You will need to check these units one at a time.
Please consider have this unit worked on by a cirtified technican.
I hope you have little expense with this repair.

Not much to check. The element comes out and makes a square loop back to the ceramic portion. This element is extremely brittle and will break if touched or wiped off.

You can check the 2 wires with a voltage tester set on continuity. The needle should swap sides if the ignitor is intact. I don't ever remember an ignitor failing, except for breakage.

View this page. Be sure you get the correct ignitor. 2 different ones have been used on the RH125T.

Reddy HEATER... | Answered on Mar 24, 2009

If you blew compressed air into the combustion chamber from the nozzle end of the heater there is a good chance that you broke the ignitor. Check it.
