Roger Gustafsson: Mine runs fine up until about 20 minutes then it starts pumping. Flame goes out, fan almost stops, then flame on fan on and back to flame out, fan almost stops. And it won't light at all if I have the cover on. Need to keep cover a little pushed open or it just sprays fuel fog. Why is this? I cleaned everything.
sixtyfiveford: If you need to test pressure, I have a link in the video description for a gauge that will permanently mount to your heater.
Roland McDuff: have a reddy R70 not pumping air.I gave it .400 clearnce , checked for air leak with soap, No air pressure. The rotor looks OK

kavensrt: i have a problem with min he have fire on sparkplug the fuel go out and it never start he try but cant start
Pete_ Hine_Of_PA: What do i ask for in getting the igniter? a 120 volt to 12 volt igniter? How do I ensure I get the right size and type of Igniter , that little back box with the spark wires coming out of it. I have a 50 BTU Tractor Supply Bullet heater looks just like the old Craftsman heater.
KB in MD Last: Unit worked fine last season but I replaced the air filter, ball/spring/plug/screw kit. I don't have a gauge (yet) Wondering how to check for fuel delivery on a HSI unit (ReddyHeater 55) With the cover off I can see the HSI fire but no fuel squirt out of the injector. The fuel filter can be blowed through. Fuel line from filter to injector good. Injector/nozzle clean, can be blowed through. Soapy water test on the pump cover and was leaking air. It may be a faulty filter. Removed air filter and retest and seal is airtight. Am I correct that if the air pressure is off it will prevent enough air to suck through to pull the fuel up to the injector? Any suggestions what to test for next?
Robert Purdy: Does it make any sense on an old unit to run a little seafoam in the tank to keep everything clean?
Diego Pedroza: hey i have a reddy heater that would turn on but not blow hot air all the way it blows low and when you turn it off it smokes what can it be
