Re: toyo laser 30 smokes and smell like unburned fuel...
If you just changed gaskets on your heater it is normal for it smoke a little bit when you first restart it. It should go away after a while though. If you smell unburned fuel you have a leak somewhere, or a spill. Check all your fuel line connections in the house. The back of the heater where the line connects, the firestop valve (the valve behind the pump that opens or closes the flow of fuel), and any connections in there behind the pump/fuel resevior. (sp) Check that they are tight. What has also happened to me is fuel has spilt and ended up along the back edge of the stove. you might be able to be crafty and unscrew all the screws at the bottom, to try to clean that up. It doesn't take much of a spill to create a very pungeant diesel smell.

Check the igniter and make sure it is good. You can check the igniter with an ohmmeter and check the circuit board where the igniter connects for voltage with a voltmeter. A Laser 55 is an old unit and parts are hard to find. Also check the flame rod and make sure the fuel pump kicks on after the preheat time. When you turn it on the blower should start and the igniter should start to preheat the burner. After 3 minutes the fuel pump should kick on. If it is making a loud ticking or thumping sound it isn't getting fuel to the pump. If you do need parts I have an old Laser 55 with some good parts. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Use caution when making checks on the circuit board. If you ground something it is likely to ruin your circuit board and those are not longer available. Turn the power off before removing the flame rod. They have power on them and also can ruin the circuit board if you let them touch anything metal on the heater. Let me know what you find.
I would look outside first. Filter, fuel level and bled the filter. Loosen the fitting on the fuel line and let some of the air out. Do it outside so you don't make a mess inside. After that if you still have a problem check the two red wires that go into the burner. If they don't get hot when you try to start you have an igniter problem.
With an EE2 message you have a problem with the stove igniting during start up. If you continue to try you will end up with an EE22 and the stove will be locked out. If so, un plug for 20 minutes. While you are waiting check out you fuel system. Low fuel, no fuel, dirty filter on tank and stove. Be sure to bled the air off the top of the filter when you change it.
You might of got type 2 fuel oil. If it is a smaller tank sometimes the fueler doesn't clear the line before filling and you'll slug down some type2 which will snuff the flame. Check to see if the filler kinked a line outside while filling. Just an Idea...
Your Laser 55 burner mat has erroded away. The fuel is pooling someplace in the burner rather than spreading smoothly over the bottom. The stuff on the igniter may be hardened carbon from a poor flame. Bottom line is some burner work. A new mat, ring and cleaning the burner air holes is in order. Don't be surprised if the heat chamber is cracked beyond repair when you get it off. NOW for the bad news. The Laser 55 and 72 are older heaters. You will find just about all the electrical parts are going to be hard to find. They are no longer being made. Your 55 will be able to use the newer 56 blower, mat and burner ring. You will also be able to use the heat element off a 56 as well. If there is a problem with the fuel pump causing your poor flame you will be out of luck.
EE22 means that your Toyo failed to ignite 3 times in a row. You need to unplug it for 30 minutes to reset the circuit board. Then plug it back in, push the red reset button on the right hand side in the little hole towards the back and push the Power button. Your Toyo should ignite after that barring some other problem caused by running out of fuel.
I am assuming that you ran out of fuel which caused the EE2 error code originally. Sometimes, when you run out of fuel you can get water, ice, debris in the fuel line causing an obstruction or limited fuel flow. You may also get an air lock. You may need to crack the fuel line at the back of the Toyo where there is 3/4 nut and bleed the line. If you see no fuel or a small quantity of fuel then you will need to thaw and/or purge the fuel line in order to get fuel to your Toyo's fuel pump.There is also a screen in the sump which can get plugged with rust, debris from the bottom of the fuel tank so you may need to clean the screen in order to get fuel to the pump.
My business is Laser Heating Service in the North Pole/Fairbanks areas of Alaska. An EE2 error code is usually fuel related. What does your Toyo do before the EE2 code shows up? If you let me know the sequence of events, I can trouble shoot the problem for you. toyotech
My business is Laser Heating Service in the
North Pole/Fairbanks areas of Alaska. An EE2 error code is usually fuel
related. What does your Toyo do before the EE2 code shows up? The firing process is the burner button blinks green for 7-9 minutes, then it clicks up to the medium, yellow light which starts flashing. That is when the fuel pump starts pumping. If you hear a fairly audible tic tic, or thump thump coming from the fuel pump then that is your indication that the fuel pump is starving for fuel. You either have a fuel line restriction, too little fuel, a clogged filter, a clogged sump screen, or rarely, a failing fuel pump. Usually, it is a fuel line restriction.
If you hear no tic tic or thump thump and it just goes off on EE2 then the problem is in the burn chamber. You may have a carbon chain in the chamber causing the flame sensor to temporarily short out. You can clean the flame sensor, fuel nozzle, and igniter to resolve this problem until you can get your Toyo tuned up.
EE-22 means that the unit has tried three times to ignite. after this it goes into a "lockout" condition. remove the power and the computer will reset itself. it will then try to re-ignite. check for a fuel blockage, dirty filter etc. if there's water in your kerosene it will not fire! kerosene floats on top of water. bleed your system until you get kero and no water. use a gas additive to remove water. dry-gas will work. just empty the bottle's contents into your tank. on your computer type in toyostove error codes. this will take you to toyo's site and explains the error codes.
