Laser 56 - leaking fuel at heater feed through

My 4 week old L-56 started leaking fuel at the point where the heating element feeds into the lower burner unit. the ceramic to metal seal can be rotated once the clamp ring has been removed. It is like the sealing stuff is gone. Also why would the fuel pump be pumping more than the burner can burn?

Sky,

It sounds like the igniter is no good. Everytime you try to start the stove the fuel pump puts fuel into the burner. If the igniter works it burns it out, if not it just builds up. If it gets high enough it comes out the igniter. Now, there could be another reason for the fuel. Have you ever pushed the little red putton on the sump? I will say, do not push that button until you know what it does. It can flood your heater big time. Rule of thumb for the red button, one time for one second, only.

You need to sop up the fuel from inside the burner. Use a rolled up paper towel. Once you have proved the igniter you can try again. If you can't prove the igniter you need a new one.

Propane turbo heater. After awhile why does it start to burn eyes and nose?


Hi Eric

It sounds like the heater is getting the air in the room so warm that it's making your eyes and nose hurt. That can be from dryness, from heat, or from combustion products.
Depending on the partucular model, you can try to:
  1. Turn the set temperature down.
  2. Turn the turbo fan to a lower setting.
  3. Turn the feed valve from your propane tank to a slower feed. At some point, you should be able to throttle the amount of fuel burning in a period of time to where the heat is more bearable.
  4. If you're smelling fuel, or overt burning petroleum smells, turn the unit off. This is a sign that things aren't burning right.
Last, but probably most important. If you are running a unit like this inside, make sure you have windows open. Please take me seriously here - installed propane furnaces have heat exchangers to pull in fresh air, heat it, and pass that air into your house. A propane heater burning inside your house is burning your inside oxygen and, depending on the flame quality, dumping Carbon Dioxide or, worse, Carbon Monoxide, into your house. You can end up dead pretty quickly, especially from Carbon Monoxide poisoning, and you'll likely be feeling fine right up to the time you pass out. These types of heaters are meant more for outside use, so please, if you absolutely feel you must run it inside, keep windows open and have a fan running. You're playing with your health

Good Luck!

I have a Laser 30 oil heater . I did a cleaning and changed the fuel filter and cleaned the screen and wiped it out . I re-programed the time clock and the temperature as we had numerous power outages...


A host of problems develop on these heaters by draining fuel to supply the heater from the tank bottom. Use the bottom tank port to pull off moisture occasionally and get equipped with a top mount duplex tank bushing. Plug one of the 2 ports on the bushing, feed 3/8" soft copper tube into the brass adapter until copper touches bottom of tank;(you'll need to hand straighten it as it goes in), scribe a sharpie mark on the copper for a reference point and pull the tube back out 2-3 inches. Now your fuel supply is above any reasonable moisture accumulation in the tank. Bend tube gently and route to your heater. Don't think your heater impulse pump will **** from the tank, you have to prime it by sucking and it will work by siphon to feed your heater forever if the tank doesn't run out of fuel. Don't forget a good inline filter isolated with valve each side. Ideally this should be placed lower than the lowest expect fuel level in the tank.Best of good luck to you. jeffpeck22@hotmail.com

dirt , foriegn material,spider web in gas feed line to the right side ceramic element of mr heater big buddy. take plastic back of heater
off, many #1 philips or smaller screws. find large air induction holes
in gas feed line to right side ceramic element and blow out with compressed air and fine tiped /straw tipped air blow gun.
straw tipped air blow gun is a better tool for this.
reassemble & try lit mr heater again.
If it dont work after air blow gun the gas feed tube, you didnt get the gas feed tube cleaned out ,***** & span (something still in there ) and will need to disassemble the gas feed tube and inspect for foreign material blocking the gas flow.

If this dont work,need to take the gas feed line off the gas valve attached to Mr. heater red knob. red knob just pulls straight out, might need pliers to grab red knob.
check gas valve output for dirt etc that stop gas from getting through. check inside the gas line to the ceramic burner for dirt,
foriegn material- that stop gas from flowing through strong.

any stopage of gas flow , even a slight stopage or dirverting of the gas flow, spider web is common, will stop ceramic element from burning properly.

needs to be clean ,like a carburator.

Heater keeps shuting down and displaying EE 6


Check for air leaks in the fuel line. Push the red reset button only once. It's usually a fuel problem. Contamination, air, mixed fuel.

Toyo 55, igniter gets hardened build-up


Gartyl,

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.

Good luck,

Laser 56 EE6


EE 6 happens for several reasons. Most likely in your case when the stove runs for a while after you turn it back on, the code is due to and over heat. The circulating fan and cover need to be spotless. If they are then the code is due to low fuel, no fuel or dirty filte on tankor stove.

There are two types of elements. One uses a 1-1/4" socket and the other used 4-bolts. If your water heater is so old that you can not find replacement elements, do yourself a favor and replace the whole heater with something more efficient.

EE2 code for toyo laser 56


Hi sammysamual,

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
