Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

I have a discontinued (around 1991) remote heating unit model ERGW 0012-1A/ P68191-6F. I need to replace the combustion chamber (heat transfer chamber). It is identified as #1 and #2 in the heating system parts picture page. I am hoping there will be some old parts somewhere. I will use an HVAC contractor to buy it but I am trying to find the part if I can. John Wisda (805) 525-9707 Ventura, Ca

That is an Amana and if it is under warranty you have to get an authorized repairman. if it is not then the cost of the part after shipping and labor will be about the same as a new unit. if your going to pay a contractor to do it any way and most new units have a vey good warranty for their gas furnace.

    dear sir, I was trying to help you out by telling you the heat exchanger might be under warranty, I believe they have a 20 yr which if you said it is a 91 that would make the warranty up in 2011. but here only an amana authorized tech can do it. I apologize for not clarifying my self I will gladly help you anyway i can and thanks fo using Fixya!

Discontinued Majestic dvhvac36 fireplace. crack on top of firebox (combustion chamber?) between 2 round "padded" filters? Will need to be replaced. wondering if anybody had the same situation?


i would say it would be a common issue as unit firebox
ages heats and cools ..so often
if you cant buy the casing or
find a used unit for sale with a good casing

depending on which material in the casing is made of
if metal or aluminum
welding the crack or a patch repair
may be possible because it is at the top of the unit
if cast iron needs a special pre- heating method of repair
or a new casting made

Water spills out of my blower on my starite pool heater model sr33na. Is it a gasket?


Oh Oh, Not Good : (

Heat Exchanger / Tube Sheet Coil Assembly has Ruptured.
It is encased in a closed combustion chamber. Water flows thru it and it is in that chamber/tank with the fire burners, heating the water within the coil. Forced air via the Blower blows into that chamber / tank and out the exhaust vent. That's it! Only air.
If water blows out, then the "Closed" Heat Coil, has ruptured.

Start looking around page 49 & onward, and you will see the breakdown parts diagram of that chamber / tank, with the coil inside.
The Manual is here...

1991 lexus ls 400 using water but cant find any leaks heater works intermittenly and engine runs hotter than usual


Sounds like a head gasket/cracked head. Does it not heat when you're sitting at a light but then starts to blow lots of heat after you start rolling again? That's a typical symptom of combustion gasses entering the coolant and coolant entering the combustion chamber. Look for steamy exhaust too, it's another symptom.

It should be addressed as soon as possible, if it were to get worse to where coolant starts getting in the oil then repairs would be much more expensive.

014 code


A 14 code means the thermal fuse (white wire which wraps around the heat exchanger) has snapped. This occurs if the heat exchanger reaches a dangerously high temperature. To correct this error code you need to replace the thermal fuse and keep the heat exchanger from over heating. Typical reasons the heat exchanger over heats are:

1) scaling in the heat exchanger
2) combustion chamber dirty and burning hot

If the unit is around 6 years old then it could be the combustion air motor. If the unit is older then you need to inspect the heat exchanger for signs of cracks. Take the top off the unit to inspect. Check to see if the metal around the reset is hot and if it is then the switch is doing it's job. If the heat chamber is cracked then turn the gas off, because your home will have CO. This can kill you.

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.
