Desa International was the manufacturer of

John Deere
Dayton- older American made models only
Queen Bee
and many private label brands

Desa international filed bankruptcy in December 2008 and is no longer in business. is an information site for products manufactured by Desa prior to 2009. This site has owner’s manuals and tech tips that were written by Desa prior to their bankruptcy. You can also find links to purchase parts for Desa product. is a source of parts for heaters manufactured in the US by Desa International, and also has valuable troubleshooting and servicing information, parts lists for all models, and necessary tools such as the low pressure air gauge for setting the air pressure from the pump (heater will not work properly if the air pressure is not correct).

Hmmm. Just saw a brand spankin new Reddy Heater in the hardware store window this morning. Has the same "Desatech dot com" on the label/sticker. Doubt that this particular unit is over 5 years old, no traces of dust from sitting around that long. Willie

DESATECH? Thats not the original company, They were DESA International. No tech in the name. You can bet the heater you saw was not US made and I bet you won't get parts for it years later either.

DesaTech is a third party that acquired most of the tech reference materials and parts lists and such, and has it posted on the web. They actually link to other web sites for parts. I think they did it more as a public service than anything.

After looking thru the DesaTech web site, it appears they may be marketing some heating products, or at least allowing their name to be put on them.

I actually have several of this type of heater. I have a Knipco, a John Deere, and 2 Reddys besides this one. All but this one are labeled as having been manufactured by DESA. This one shows something different, but I don't have it near me to take a look. Hopefully the link you provided will help out. Thenk you!

Took a look at the listing. It shows most of the major parts by name and number BUT.....
In most of these heaters, the reset button is part of the safety/flameout module, and has 5 wires going to it. On this heater, is is a separate piece with only 3 wires. One from the power, one to the heater main power, and a third wire from the safety module. This piece is literally falling apart. Hopefully I can get this part somehow without having to buy a safety module.
