Robert L: That air pump is just a rotary vane pump. The vanes can get gummed up in the rotor and cause these to not run as well. Easy fix with some brake parts cleaner, rags, and not very much time.
idustinh89: My 65 Ford I was just wondering if you please tell me how to prep my Reddy heater 4 summer storage so it will start right up next winter. Thank you very much
faffaflunkie: Do these heaters, which are labeled for kerosene, work with home heating oil?
Pat Stillriding: I can not find a cheap ignition coil, where did you get yours at?
Jason Craft: should there be air sucking through the hole where you are adjusting it? I see mine at 4 psi like it says and it's not glowing red if I cover the hole with my finger it goes to like 8-10 psi and it starts to glow red.
Steve James: My problem is that my ready heater is putting out Black smoke randomly? What do you suggest as a fix. It acts like is low on fuel when it is fill and starts putting out Black small. Is this some kind of filter issue. I really need to get this thing operating right. Thanks
Ryan Mccready: Ok thanks I'll give that a try. Thanks
Ryan Mccready: love the video I have a similar heater dyna glo. I can't seem to get the pressure gage to at all. could the air pump be bad?
Thomas Barker: thanks
David Ryder: Thanks - great info!
Kevin Lopez: Hey, I have a Remington 60k BTU... It turns on and runs for about 20 - 30 seconds. What do you think might be shutting it off?
Jim Bos: Very nicely done video. Thanks for the good information.
boomermike007: Very good thank you!
Michael Biasiello: I'm really not trying to be a smarty pants or know it all but. What you're calling an optical sensor is properly known as the CAD Cell. All in all great video
JB G: I have the same heater for my garage and mines works for a while then it comes on and then gose right out so I unplug it and wait few seconds and plug back in it works for about 5 seconds But when I don't use it for a day then go out and use it it works and when you doing body work you need heat here in Michigan in the winter time oh I have Ready Heater 55,000 BTU should I change my spark plug or the sensor oh i do have the electric temp, setting i bought when it was new at home depot maybe 8 to 10 years ago I think so its one owner please tell me what i need to do it dose work but after garage is up to 60 degree or more and then when temp drop and it kicks on sometimes it works all day most time it cuts off after 5 seconds.
Nicholas Weber: Very helpful video. Thanks for showing me how to check and adjust the airflow.
martin valentin: thanks I put kerosene it work perfectly good no fumes thanks
fragwits: mini turk burner.
EUGENE Mc ARDLE: Making progress man, one of two problems. Re the pressure, I have to run the heater on max pressure ( with 4 inch flames out the front ) to avoid fumes. Yet when I turn down the pressure ( where it previously sat for years) the fumes are overpowering and it does not run smooth at all yet it still throws 2 inch flames out around the front shield. Looks like the fuel jet could be the culprit.
Brian G: I have two older model (35-40 years) 63000 BTU Reddy Heaters that have been used occasionally in the colder months. I adjusted the the pressures on each of these units, but the gauge is very shaky on each. Pressure readings will fluctuate around .5 PSI on each unit. The units heat OK, smell a bit on fresh K-1 Kerosene, but I am not sure they are operating at full potential. Should the pressure fluctuate? All filters are original and no housing cracks are visible.
