New Monitor Heater 2400......after 3 to 3 and a half minutes the burn light comes on with no visible flash in the site glass. Stays on about 2 and a half to 3 more minutes then goes off. About 1 minute later E13 flashes with beeping and then thats it. I've bled the line several times so far and have set the time and temp and tried it in a cold house.

I found the Monitor Error Message Codes on their website http://www.monitorproducts.com/pdf/troubleshooting/m.pdf

I also called their tech person at Toll Free: 800-524-1102. He called back and said E13 is usually about cleaning the screen (fuel filter). He told me to look at pages 22-23 and follow the instrux about cleaning the fuel strainer. He did say that if that doesn't work, call a repair person, but I'm going to call back if it isn't fixed.

I have a Monitor 2400 model. A couple of days ago it quit working and started flashing an E14 (out of fuel) message, then went to an E13 message. I tried backing off the screw on the side to see if maybe it was airlocked. It still didn't fire so I shut off the valve (inside the house), drained the fuel and checked out the filter screen to see if it was clogged. (on the right hand side below the red button) Put it back together, depressed the red button a few times and it fired. It ran good for at least 18hrs then stopped and flashed the E13 error message again. I've had this happen 3 times. I think it has something to do with the cold temperatures we've been experiencing in Alaska. We hadn't had problems until this year when we went to a larger fuel barrel and a different fuel filter setup on the outside tank along with new copper lines into the house. It might be the filter, a kinked copper line, or the ignitor. I thought about it being a fuel problem (#2 diesel instead of '#1), but don't think that's the problem. I'm trying to keep it running til my husband gets home to fix it!!!

So we had an error code 13 on a GF3800 (three years old). the technician found a split in one of the rubber feed tubes (for air, I think) - he cut about 1/2" off the end of the tube, re-mounted it, and solved the problem. the burner had been shutting on and off when we tried to start it and the problem is gone.

    Thank you so much. Opening the front I saw 3 hoses that were in terrible shape. trimmed 2 of them and purchased the third from a furnace and parts company that kindly sold me a piece of Goodman furnace tubing - identical size, same use. And that was all that was wrong. It is humming along great now. Thanks again

E13 means the same thing for the gas stove as the fuel oil stove, No ignition. You could really have had no ignition or the computer may not have recognized any flame. Either way the stove quits and gives the E13 message. For fuel oil stoves check the fuel supply and filter. For the gas heaters look into the window with a dark room and try to start the heater. You should see a flasking in the pot. If you don't then the igniter is no good.

    Corrected the issue of Monitor 2400 flash E-13: changed fuel filter at the tank, which did not correct this issue. Then, cleaned the filter on the heating unit. I think BOTH FILTERS were to blame.
    The tank filter had not be changed in maybe 8 yrs., it was totally GUMMED UP

When your monitor flashes E13 it is critical you go outside and check that the vent is not covered with snow or something else. That will fix the problem instantly if that is the case.

You have a problem with the amount of fuel that is reaching the unit or a blockage in the fuel line.

Guys! I have a GF1800 Natural Gas Monitor, simple fix for that code. Remove front cover of you machine, right in the front id a firing pot with a rod in it. Pull the rod, clean it with fine sand paper and reinstall, Problem solved! What happens you get a buid up on that rod. I owe 5 units and all needed to be cleaned once a year.

Posted on Dec 16, 2014

I had the same problem with my monitor 2400 last year it was a fuel delivery problem, there are many things that can contrubute to the e13 code , dirty fuel filter, oil line has been bent so the fuel will not flow into the heater, exhaust or intake has been obstructed preventing combustion, or the fuel lifter pump( a add on to the 2400 model) has been unplugged.

Monitor MPI it flashes F 13 or 14 & smells, I had it cleaned 6 months ago


The codes are "E" Codes. an E13 is no fuel. E-14 means flame rod malfunction. Unplug the heater then reconnect, this will reset the heater. Try your red prime button. Could also be the fuel pump or your fuel source feed line isn't flowing fuel.

My light won't ignite on my mpi 441 monitor


this morning my heater, monitor 411, was running fine as always.
while it was running the power company came to work on a pole and turned the power off. it was down for about three hours. once power was restored it wouldn't come on.
the pilot light is off but I'm not sure if it's suppose to be while not running.I've tried priming it with three pumps, resetting by unplugging, beleeding the line, all don't work.
it's suppose to be 22f tonight so I could sure use some help.
oh, I have a manual but, of course, it doesn't cover the problem. I also called the company but got a voice mailbox...go figure.
somebody please help!

I have an MPI monitor heater model gf 1800. It keeps flashing E17. why?


My GF 1800 was flashing the e17 code as salenski_mar said.If all is clear around vent pipe, sufficient fuel in tank,ect. take the front cover off the unit,2 sheet metal screws on bottom side left and right(remove power first)on the left side of my unit there is a round black barell shaped container called a heat exchanger.Located about halfway up a small panel with 2 white tube shaped wires going into it.remove 4 screws on this panel and remove the panel.
There are 3 electrodes here . carefully clean these with a rag or fine sandpaper.
Reassemble and retry the heater.I watched a heating tech do this to my unit and charge me $75.00 last year.Did it again this year and I saved a service call.Actualy I believe he used a $20.00 bill instead of sandpaper but clean the flame sensor and it may work.worth a try.

I have mpi monitor e 13 keeps coming up


E13 means that the flame rod couldn't detect fire during it's 300 second cycle. If you can see fire through the window, start by cleaning the flame rod.
If no fire is visable after 300 seconds, feel the ignitor cover. If it is warm, check the fuel system, chances are the ignitor is working. If it's cold you have a bad ignitor.

Gf3800 monitor-brand new E13 code multiple starts, propane is full any ideas?


E 13 is the code for ignition failure. You can find the codes at www.monitorproducts.com. Look under service manuals. Has the heater ever burned? Make sure your fresh air pipe isn't connected to one of the two exhaust ports on the flue pipe and that the air port you are connected to isn't blocked off. May be air in the gas line if its a new install.

MPI monitor flashing e17 code


yea there is an e17 error code on at least the monitor gf3800. the error code means according to the manual and other online resourses means that the fan is blocked, the intake or output vent is clogged, or there is insufficient fuel due to another appliance running on the same either lp or natural gas using the pressure. Apparently there are other reasons for the error code, as mine is also flashing e17 and all vents are clear, fan operates normally, and this is the only lp appliance I have in the house. Searched the internet for answers and only found the same question. hope someone figures this thing out and posts it somewhere (anywhere) on the net. you figure it out, let me know.

E13 code, monitor 2400


You have an obstruction in your fuel line. Lint or rust or some other debris, either in your main fuel filter which I hope you have or in the small one in the fuel sump on the lower right hand side (the little square hole below the round finger hole for the reset button). The screen is cleanable with air or brakekleen or both. Or it might be that your Constant Level Valve is tripping or has tripped. Push the button in the round hole on the lower right hand one time quickly (don't hold it down or press it several times slowly) and you should hear the float drop. Fuel should resume flowing to the fuel sump at that time.
