Anyone ever work on a Reddy Heater?
« on: January 04, 2012, 09:33:41 AM »
I have a 35,000 btu kerosene heater, model r35b, and when I plug it in, the fan kicks on but it will not ignite. Then after 5-10 seconds, it trips the breaker on the back. Any suggestions?

I tore it apart and the spark plug had some gunk on it, so I cleaned it off and it fired right up. Guess it's probably time for a new plug.
