What is a cad cell and what does it do


A cad cell is a photo-electric device that reads the UV rays given off by flame after it has ignited. If it does not 'see' the flame, due to a flame failure OR a cad cell failure, the control circuit is locked out.
Make sure there is no carbon on the front (window)of the cell and make sure its adjustment is in perfect alignment to the flame.

Spark plug fired,( Sears -30,000 BTU) starts and runs for approx. 30 seconds, then cuts off. The reset button does not reset for restart for about another 20 - 30 seconds. Then the unit will restart...


check and see if the heater has a high temperature limit switch. if it does it will shut the machine off until it cools down.. just replace it with a new one.

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.

I have a 100,000 btu reddy heater, and every time I turn it on, it runs for about 5 minutes, then stops, then I have to push the reset button and start it again. Can you tell me where to start? thanx


If it actually ignites and burns but shuts off either the flame sensor is bad (or dirty) or the control is bad. I would verify the flame sensor is clean and had good electrical connections to the controller for starters.

Heater turns on for a few seconds then goes out


Absolutely K1 or diesel can get old in a hurry, the ultra-low Sulphur diesel has been tinkered with so much that it turns to book varnish much faster than before 2010. Most of those heaters spray fuel past the igniters using a siphon much like a spray paint gun, the suction tube may have dry rot or a small air leak and it it takes but a tiny air leak to kill the siphon effect. Check the tube from the nozzle all the way down to the fuel tank or replace it if you're not certain it is not compromised or dry rotted.

Have john deere 50 kerosene space heater has fuel,new plug,


if it trys to start when you turn the thermostate then thats not the problem, it has to be either the high heat limit control or the flame sensor. Mine did the same thing and I also thought the eye was working but as soon as I changed it the problem was solved. Pretty much all flame sensors are the same and you can get one from Mr. Heater for less than 3 bucks, same with the limit control.
