Not really, the limit switch is like an emergency cutoff. If it reaches the limit, it shuts down.

SOURCE: RM115 Reddy Heater forced air heater problem

I had close to the same problem i drain the tank added new fuel still no diffrence so i removed the filter going to the tank pick up flushed out with brake clean it work fine for half a day . I knew then i was on the right track . I went to the local hardware store and bought a tune up kit that had the filter in it,I replaced the filter going to the tank pick up and it's been working fine even in cold weather. Fuel quality has a big part to play in it's abbility to burn in colder tempicures.

SOURCE: MY KEROSENE HEATER STARTS, RUNS MAYBE 5 MINUTES THEN SHUTS OFF

Same problem I had and it was the CAD/flmae sensor. you can get one that will fit from Mr. Heater for 3 bucks or from reddypats.com for 18. the wires are a different color but all you do is clip them and splice them to your old wire harness. It does''nt matter how you hook them as there is no hot and ground just a complete circuit.

SOURCE: pro 110, runs 10 min., blows white smoke ,shuts off

the first thing you need to do is go back to useing K1 kerosene, diesel fuel not only burns dirty but also has a tendency to gel up in cold weather which could be makeing it hard for the heater to draw the proper amount of fuel. To reset the pressure you will need a gage, it should run at about 6-7 psi. you can order a pressure gage from mr. heater online, they are by far the cheapest I have found as they are the actual manufacturer or call 1-800-251-0001

You Must set the pump pressure quickly! If allowed to run with the nose cone a "bright" cherry red the welds will deterioate to the point that the end will separate from the combustion chamber. Individual sheet metal parts of the chamber are not available.

Here is a link to your owner's manual... http://12.153.20.74/manuals/123919-01A.PDF. Look on page 8 and 10. It could be several things. It could only be a dirty fuel filter or the pump pressure may just need adjustment. If you need a part you can contact Master Parts at 800-466-1446 or you can find them on-line at www.masterparts.net. I hope this helps!

My heater is a reddy heater 165,000btu. when i plug it up it will ignite, it will get a flame for about ten seconds and it shutdown. i recently replaced the ignitor because it broke and replace the fuel...


I would definitely stop burning off road diesel as it is dirty.Remove the top section of the heater and clean the fire eye with windex and a terry cloth rag, and run K1 kerosene it burns so much cleaner. Also make sure that fuel is not an issuecheck fuel filter,fuel lines and don't forget the screen in behind the nozzle.

Runs than shuts off after a few seconds


Is this a propane or kerosene heater? If it is kerosene, check your fuel, clean your tank and start with fresh fuel. Check your fuel filter/air filters at the back of air pump. Make sure your ignition system is working.

The heater will run for about 45 sec. and shut down


Hi, make sure the fan is staying on before it shuts off. It sounds as though the unit is shutting off on high limit switch. For what reason I do not no. It could just be faulty. If it is a forced air as you say and the air is not as strong as it normally would be, this would cause the high limit to open. If you have a diagram or a manual on it anywhere, you can try and find this high limit switch and use a piece of electrical wire to bypass it or jump it out to see if this is the fault. They are normally located in the burner section, the probe part of it anyway. It senses the temperature of the out-put and if the fan is forcing enough heat out, and if not, off it will go. So, try and locate it and jump it out. If it continues to run then this is a safety switch and should only be left jumped out while trouble-shooting and must be replaced. If you can't find one in town, you can order one on the Internet. Check the motor also and check to see if all parts where the air flows is clean also. Get back to me and let me know what you have found and if we need to go further into it.
Sincerely,
Shastalaker7

Sounds like the pump or air filter is dirty. If cleaning them doesn't help, the pump will need to be rebuilt.
