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

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.
EUGENE Mc ARDLE: Thanks for reply. Had the fuel jet out for cleaning and looked fine but gave it a good clean in any case. Bought this heater new a number of years back but it would not have a great deal of hours use. Had contaminated kero in it a couple of weeks ago and i drained it out, flushed tank and then power hosed it inside. Stood it on it's end overnight to drain onto paper roll and then heated tank with hot air gun to ensure no moisture remained. When I went to start it up there was no fuel delivery to the new fuel filter so took it to local guy for testing/repair. New parts fitted ref to pump area but now I find it throws out flame at all levels of PSI adjustment. Also has to be kept on high PSI setting otherwise the Kero fumes are unbearable. If it was only an adjustment I would be happy to do that otherwise it will be going back to previous repairer to set up correctly.
EUGENE Mc ARDLE: Hi thanks for posting video. I have a similar Kero ( SIP ) space heater which has started to throw out flame around the front and the fumes cause eye irritation. To run and not cause this eye irritation I have to increase the PSI to nearly max. What do you suggest could be the problem ? Thanks.
Timothy Bertsch: My heater when cold only ignites when I loosen the screws on 1 side of cover and slightly raise the cover. When the heater is running for a while it will ignite if still hot. Can you let me know why?
