SOURCE: can i convert my dyna glo 75000 btu propane

I'm sure you can, contact the manufacturer and ask if they have a natural gas jet or orfice for your model heater, these are usually very easy to replace.

SOURCE: burning eyes and sore throat when heater is on

This heater should only be used in a very well ventilated area, the sore throat and burning eyes are from carbon monoxide.
Carbon monoxide is potentially fatal.  I cannot express how dangerous this is if used in a house or garage without the doors open
Please be careful and let me know if I can provide furthur assistance.

Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at

SOURCE: 150,000 BTU propane Reddy Heater shuts off after ignition

Is there a frost line on your LP tank, if so you may need to replace the tank with a larger tank or refill your tank. This can happen if the tank your using is too low or too small (use 100 lb tank or greater). If there is no frost line it may be an issue with the thermocouple. The manufacturer offers a service manual and owner's manuals on there site. This should assist you... Thank you

I have an older reddy heater propane 35000 btu the flame is pretty yellow it runs but tends to flicker and sputter some days will only run 30 seconds other days will run 1/2 hour but always easily restarts...

The flicker and sputter is usually a sign that the unit and more specifically, the fuel nozzle needs cleaning. Anything that would cause restricted air flow, needs to be removed.

In case you have misplaced your Owners Manual, I have included a link to it. You can download and print it for future reference, if you like.

Hope this helped you to troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know.

My 35000 btu will not stay lit. after i take my finger off the propane gas butten the flame goes off. what is wrong. this is a ready heater

I would venture to say that it is the thermocouple not picking up signal to keep the gas valve open. You can try cleaning the bulb end with steel wool and positioning it in the flame remember the hottest part of the flame is out on the end.

I have reddy heater 35000 btu.starts ,then works 5 seconds and shut off

I have a LP gas version. I had to disconnect some kind of sensor (looks like a watch battery with 2 red wires). I made a jumper wire and put in place of red wires. Works fine now. This sensor might be an Oxygen sensor.

Reddy heater model 28725

propane heater uses a hot surface ignitor. this operates off 120 volts and glows red/orange when actuated. it stays lit throughout the heater on operation.  on the backplate of the combustion chamber is a high limit with two wires coming off it.  these two wires connect to the spade connectors on the flame detector cappillary.  Once you establish a fire, the flame detector generates a 750 millivolt signal which is applied to the pilot/main valve assembly.  My diagram will show this. 1fa8284.jpg
