reddy Heater 125T wont stay running
« on: January 30, 2011, 02:25:42 PM »
My space heater wont keep running, I am burning kerosene, it ignites just fine, but will only run for at most one minute, usualy less. Then the flame indicator light comes on and it goes out. I have to turn the switch off to reset it and then it will start up again and start the cycle over again. Anyone got any Ideas on what causes it to shut down right away?

On alot of the little kero heaters (desa, reddy ect) they have a flameout control unit...the unit will light and run for a minute or so and then switch over to the flame sensor, the flame sensor sees the light of the flame and keeps the heater running. if the sensor is dirty or bad the heater will run for a moment and die
Better to burn out than fade away?...I say...lets get lit.....In a past life...I was refered to as Bluesilver....he he ..i said refer
