You have a fire hazard here! Do NOT use the device until it has been checked by a technician! There is no way I can diagnose this problem on line. You don't need a fire just before Christmas, and thats what will happen!

A repairman needs to sit in front of the unit & watch it make the noise (Ball of fire). Then it can be fixed. Sounds like delayed ignition to me. That only takes a minor adjustment to fix. BUT, it will sound bad & scare small children & animals until fixed. I am assuming it only does the "noise", every once in awhile. Until a repair guy can see the furnace act up, he can not fix it. Does this help?

Turn off the heater at once and turn off gas flow to the unit! this sounds like a valve has been damaged and is spraying gas into the sides of unit!

Paul is correct, but also check the air ajustment for the burners. If you have real large yellow flame the shutter should be opened till you get a blue flame.

Loud Knocking


If the noise is not coming from the fan as Buffalo suggests, it is most likely the expansion and contraction of the heat exchanger. The old school way to lessen the noise of expansion is to bank the combustion chamber with a hammer. I don't recommend it today because the metal is so thin (thus all the noise) and you may damage it. You will get used to it and the noise may soften the more it is used. You will never get it to stop.

Toyostove Laser 56 (F type) making loud humming noise


the toyostove is basically a glorified monitor heater.  its components are a combustion blower, an air circulator fan, a flame pot, a flat wick or burner mat, a solenoid pump, an ignition element, double  walled intake, exhaust pipe.   the combustion blower is a glorified vacuum cleaner motor. it sucks in cool air and channels it to the combustion chamber along the sides (round cylinder) kero enters on the burner mat where it ignites. the solenoid pump keeps adding kero until the flame detector spots or heats up. air flow to the pot is regulated by a damper in the combustion air blower line. if the "O" ring in the damper is missing or hardened it will not regulate the air flow which is necessary for combustion.  replace this "O" ring should take care of your problem.
