    We do have the same problem. Our heater is propane. Model #1004F. Our heater was new last year, and the problem began almost immediately, so I am can't believe it would immediately be dirty, dusty? Our heater is vented.

That kind of noise is coming from the air or exhaust side of the unit. Check the end of your flue pipe for frost or ice. Make sure the pipes from the flue to the heater are in the correct position.

    Economists include only final goods in measuring GDP for a particular year because if intermediate goods were


    counted, then multiple counting would occur.

    The dollar value of final goods includes the dollar value of intermediate goods. If intermediate goods were counted, then multiple counting would occur. The value of steel used in the production of automobiles (an intermediate good) is included in the price of the final product (the automobile).

    After 5 or 6 copies taken an error E000070-0202 and E000070-0101 will occured. what is the problem


    E070 there is an error in the detection of ITB home position

    00xx The home position of the intermediate transfer belt is not detected within
    a specific period of time .
    The ITB HP sensor is faulty.
    Turn off the main power, and check the DC controller PCB and the
    ITB HP sensor; then, turn on the main power.

    01xx The period of time between when the home position of the intermediate
    transfer belt is detected and the next home position is detected is longer
    than specified .
    The presence of a tear may have caused the sensor to wrongly identify it
    as indicating the home position.
    Turn off the main power, and check the drive of the intermediate
    transfer belt; then, turn on the main power.


    02xx The period of time between when the home position of the intermediate
    transfer belt is detected and when the next home position is detected is
    shorter than specified .
    The intermediate transfer belt slips on the drive roller, causing a delay in
    the timing at which the home position is detected.
    Turn off the main power, and check the surface of the intermediate
    transfer belt for a tear; then, turn on the main power.

    03xx The detection of the home position of the intermediate transfer belt has
    failed once.
    ITB home position sensor B and ITB home position sensor A must occur
    alternately; however, the same state has been detected continuously.
    Turn off the main power, and check the DC controller PCB and the
    ITB HP sensor; then turn on the main power.

    Intermediate Steering Shaft


    The intermediate steering shaft was re-designed to fix that rattle on turns. Not sure if there was a recall for the '05 but seems to me a bunch of guys got it replaced for free. Check out the forums on www.dieselplace.com and do a search for intermediate steering shaft....there is lots of info. You might have to join (free) before you can get search privileges. In any case its a great site for anyone with a D/A.
    Good luck.

    My new RHFE-1004FA has a slight whistle to it.


    May have a bad regulator on the tank or bad gas pressure. The colder it is, the less gas pressure you get out of the tank.
