Question about Rinnai Toyostove Direct Vent Heater: Toyostove Laser 73 Shipping

2 Answers

Toyostove L-73 I know that the new #2 Diesel is basically the same as K-1 Kerosene. Has anyone tried burning #2 Diesel instead of kerosene, seeing that it's cheaper? If so, any luck?

Rust,

#1 and #2 are not the same at all. Toyo Laser 73 heaters should only use #1 home heating fuel or Water Clear Kerosene. If you burn #2 in your Laser 73 it will soot up in less than a week. It is a disaster, do not do it!!!
The difference between the fuels is the amount of carbon in them. # 2 has a lot of carbon and therefore more BTU's of heat per pound than # 1. All that carbon will end up on the burner, blower and in the heat exchanger. It will be the dirtiest job you have ever done.

I have used #2 in the summer. I have been told the difference between 1 and 2 is 1 has an additive so it won't free. I would use oil meant to be used as heating oil because it should be lower in sulfer.

Is it allright to burn part deisel with kerosine in a Toyo laser ignited heating stove?


Only if you want to stink up the house (more than just what the kerosene does) and don't mind dealing with a little soot on the walls and ceiling.

I wouldn't. But the choice is yours to make.

hope this helped you in some way. Please let me know. Thanks.

Your manufacturer, Toyotomiusa, recommends that you tighten all the joints on the fuel line. Your owner's manual CLICK HERE contains detailed drawings showing the location of all parts, including the fuel injector. Your unit will need to be serviced by a qualified technician if you have tightened the connectors and still smell kerosene or find wet spots under your heater. It should not leak or smell of kerosene. If you're smelling kerosene, you should not operate the unit, because the leak may cause a fire.

Running very rich. how to adjust fuel and air screw


First of all are you running kerosene or diesel ? If you are using diesel, it does not burn as clean as kerosene which causes that burning rich smell. If you are going to use diesel, just use #1 diesel only but still may have a little rich smell. Don't use die red off road diesel. If you are using kerosene and want to check your air pressure on your pump, you will need a 10 lb. test gauge with a 1/8" NPT male pipe thread on the end of the gauge.There are 2 plugs on the back plate. Do not remove the upper plug with the hole in it. This is the adjustment screw for pressure. Clockwise increases pressure, counter clockwise decreases pressure. With the heater unplugged,remove the lower plug. Screw the test gauge in and start the heater. Check the pressure. Most are set between 5 1/2 and 6 lb. of pressure. Check your owners manual to see what your setting should be. If your pressure does not change, you have a worn pump and it would have to be repaired. Once you have the correct setting, unplug the heater, remove the gauge and install the plug back. If you feel that you are not qualified to perform this procedure, send it in to a local repair center.

Hello and thanks in advance for any replies! :) We have not used our Laser 73 for close to 5 years. Tank was empty so we had it filled and new filter installed at the tank. I cleaned the screen at the sump...


That heat tube is the ignitor it gets real hot for a minuet then the kerosene starts pumping in and it flames up from the hot tube. I would expect that kerosene is not going in to the burn pot. the kerosene valve control will make a ticking pumping sound about 1 minuet after the vent fans start. within seconds a flame should appear. If you remove the screen and open your line or tank valve kerosene should flow out of it. hopefully you installed a line valve just before the going in to the heater. I loved my laser 73 about 10 years old. but kerosene at 3.50 a gallon for the clear stuff made me install a ground source system. I keep it as a back up running it once a month for 1/2 hour. dave

Yoyostove laser 73 ee-2 keeps coming up which i know is missed ignition,but after a few times of missing ignition the k-1 leaks from the bottom of the heater what needs to be done about this problem?


Sounds like your igniter may have burned out. You can test the igniter with an ohmmeter. You can also check for voltage on the circuit board where the igniter connects. Don't try to start it again until you check the igniter because unburnt kerosene will just keep building up in the burner. Let me know if you need more help.

Can you use diesel instead of kerosene in ready heaters?


No - diesel fuel is NOT the same as kerosene. Kerosene is #1, regular diesel is #2. They are not interchangeable.

Getting code EE 2 on a laser 73 toyostove that runs on kerosene


EE 2 usually has to do with the fuel. Does the heater make a loud ticking or thumping sound? That's the sound the fuel pump makes when its not getting any fuel. Check your filter, check the strainer in the fuel sump. Depending on how cold it is any water in the fuel line could be frozen blocking the fuel flow. You might also check the flame rod for soot. It can be cleaned with some steel wool.(nitensheaterservice@embarqmail.com)
