If the unit lights Check the photo cell this can be done with an ohm meter and good light. Should have continuity in light.

    The danger is if it doesn't light it will keep pumping fuel creating a mess and fire hazard.

I have reddy htr 35 was running great,just stopped reset breaker lit right up then went out Pulled cover off fan and spark fine reset it lights right up can see the fuel atomizing flame starts...


Check your fuel lines and most models have a fuel filter in line. A few things come to mind one how old is the fuel? Check the screen in the nozzle assembly by removing nozzle it sits directly behind the nozzle, these corrode and affect fuel flow. While you have this tore down clean the fire-eye with windex and terry cloth rag, it may not be seeing the flame. Check the air filter at the back of the heater as well. These are common problems with these heaters.

Vogelzang kerosene heater will not ignite (no spark)


There is an igniter module and then the igniter electrodes (check the air gap) that produces the spark to start the fuel burning, both could be defective.

Lights and runs for 30 seconds then goes out and trips overload switch


Check to see if the pump is leaking some where.Then clean the pump out if there is no leak.Are you burning kerosine?K 1 will give you no problems,but diesel will cause a lot of problems,some reddy heaters can burn both,and some you can not,so look at the warnings.

Have a 155000 btu ready heater


It sounds like the unit is tripping the breaker because the breaker is not rated high enough to handle the heaters power usage! If its not that then it may very well be the thermostat needs replaced in unit!
Test at a friends house to see if its your system or the unit!
