What is pictured is a propane heater. two problem areas come to mind. one) the hi limit cutout, and two) the flame sensor. the hi limit is a normally closed device that is bolted to the back plate of the fire chamber. its two wires go to the cappilary of the flame sensor. the flame sensor is of the j-k thermocouple. it generates a millivolt signal to keep the pilot valve open. the flame sensor generates a dc output to the tiny electromagnet inside the main valve. when you start the unit, a hot surface igniter heats up, the main valve opens, a signal is generated to keep the valve open. if it doesn't sense a flame it shuts down and goes into lockout. change the flame sense unit first. what you can also do is temporarily put a jumper wire on the two terminals on the cappillary of the flame sensor.

When filled with kerosene then plugged in, the heater will kick on for about 3 seconds and the fan will run but it will not ignite, then it shuts off. reddy heater 55, 55000btu. runs on K1 or fuel oil.

I have an older reddy heater pro 100 kerosene space heater,

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.
