SOURCE: my reddy heater 70,000 btu.

Assuming the "electronic safety shutdown system" is operating properly, the system is shutting the heater down becausr the control board/photocell don't like what is being seen inside the combustion chamber. That is what they are supposed to do if there is water, trash, an air leak, a vacuum leak, a broken ignitor, a worn nozzle, etc.

Your job, as the troubleshooter, is to find out why the flame is not correct. Read the tips below:
