Question about Reddy Heater-170,000 BTU Kerosene Deluxe
I cleaned the fuel and air lines. I replaced the rotor and blades. I put new off road diesel fuel in it. I can see it spray fuel but it will not ignite the fuel. Serial # 015234420. Model number RD170T
What is your air pressure, very important. Air pressure should be between 4 to 6 pounds.

This is going to be a tough one. You have been thorough, done it right, and it damn sure ought to fire off every time!
There is something that is causing you a problem and don't think that because you put in new parts that you didn't get a bad part. It happens. Not often, but it does happen. I have rec'd nozzles from the factory that had the orifice installed sideways, so, I know it happens.
If the ignitor glows- (it only stays on for 5 seconds, then quits)
If the fuel fogs (not sprays)
If the fuel hits the glowing ignitor
Then it should fire off-- every time.
Now, if the photocell doesn't like what it sees, then the photocell will shut the heater down within 5 seconds, but it at least should have ignited. Right? Unless the photocell or the board are bad. Maybe.
Lift the top, and watch. What's happening. Are you having a fuel problem or an electronics problem? For instance- is the ignitor glowing every time at start up or only sometimes.
Let me know what you find.

check out the fuses getting blown out on the internal chip circuit board and also the overheating component on that same circuit boasd.the burnt component will look little bit extra blackish on its sides.

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.
