Question about Reddy Heater RLP100 Portable Forced Air Propane Heater with Variable Heat Ouput

1 Answer

Won't stay lit

The Reddy heater I have will light just as it is supposed to; the problem is when I release pressure from the igniter it quits working. It will not stay lighted and this then will not allow it to be adjusted to the medium and high setting. I have not used this heater since last winter and it worked fine when I put it up durin g the summer months. I got a new tank of fuel just inb case the old tank I had had went bad some way. I don't know if that is possible but it was a cheap thing to try.

Have a Reddy Heater RCP275 propane gas heater. If able to light - the heater will burn for 1-5 min. but then goes out. Sometimes burner will not light at all when the red pilot button is released. At times...

Sounds like the igniter needs to be replaced. It is normal for a heater to run five or so minutes that means the thermostat is working. then restart when the temp calls for heat but if the igniter does not work it will not light up again.

I have a Heat Dragon (rlp50) and it won't stay lit unless the control knob is pushed in all the time.

Sounds like the thermocouple is bad. Pushing the knob bypasses the thermocouple and permits ignition once you let go after thirty seconds it is supposed to stay lit. This is common with heaters.

Torpedo heater wont stay lit.

Do you have the serial number or the manufacture date? There are some design changes and I would need to know the year of manufacture to assist accurately. Usually it is a relay or the thermocouple connection that will affect the unit staying lit.

Heater will not light

I had similar problems with a older Reddy Heater. I bought a 0-15 lb. gauge and removed a plug on the control end of the heater. Turn on or plug it in and set the fuel line pressure as listed on the data sheet (also listed on the heater).

IMPORTANT. This type of heater will not light if the oxygen level is below safe limits. You need more that 14% to support life. Normal is 21%.

Wall mount propane heater ignites, but won't stay lit

I have a Reddyheat IWH16NLTD with this problem. When the heater fan turns on it blows the pilot light slightly up and away from the thermocouple causing the safety valve to close after the ceramic cools down. The manual says that low gas line pressure can cause the flame to rise too far from the thermocouple causing this problem, so either it is a problem with gas pressure, or it is an assembly plant problem.

Reddyheat rlp 100 will not stay lit, strong gas smell.

I had the same problem with my Reddy Heater PRO 100. It is the 20Lb bottle causing your problem.
I Put a 100LB bottle on and ended my problems.

Forced air propane heater won't stay lit

two items come into play here - 1) the hot surface cutout and 2) the flame detect Cd cell. Check alignment of the Cd cell or just replace it. The hot surface cutout has two terminals that plug into the two tabs on the millivolt generator.
