Question about Buffalo Technology MiniStation Computers & Internet

Open Question

Brivis Buffalo 120 - setting the control unit to either Heat or Cool the unit does not start. Tried the Fan nothing happens either. During winter it worked perfectly. I only noticed the problem on Thursday last week when Melbourne had the record 39 degrees for spring time in 100 years! I checked the plugs to make sure they are in place. I have not powered off/on from the points though. My partner already replaced batteries on the wall control unit. He also checked the fuse box - all look OK. Has anyone experienced the same problem please share what was the resolution before we call a technician in. You know how expensive callouts can be. Thanks!

SOURCE: Temperature varies 13 degrees around setpoint on aux heat

I don't have the book for this particular unit but, check the sequencers that control the electric heat mode, as the regulator heat pump works good. The part may have a time or temperature delay that is too long for you. Also if it has a remote thermostat, check the heat anticipate setting. You will have to check the installation manuel, but its usually .6 to .8, but I don't think that is the problem.

SOURCE: Wall Hung A/C unit remote

I just got onto a technician who solved the problem for me. What he had me do was:-

  1. Pull dowwn the slider and use a pen to press the ACL button.
    That didn't fix it so...
  2. Take off the slider (the way you would to change the batteries). There is an ABCD slider switch and mine was set to "C". I moved it back to "A" and now it works! I am not sure how it got to "C" though ???
The other thing is I had been messing around with the "Manual/Auto" button under the grill on the wall unit. It was set so that the A/C was off. I'm not sure if that is significant.

Hope that helps.

Cheers,

Brivis Buffalo 15 not blowing air.


This sounds like a flame proving fault, so what's more than likely happening is the unit isn't sensing the flame. You'll see a small metal rod sticking down infront of the burner on the opposite side as the ignition source. Remove that rod, and clean it with some scotch bright. If you know how to work a volt meter you can test this part. Take the wire off the flame rod, place your meter leads in series with the wire and flame rod and set it to micro amps DC. Fire the unit up, and when your main burner lights you'll want to see a minimum of 1micro amp DC. If you're getting a higher reading than that and it still cycles I'd be suspicious of the grounding of the burner, or the ignition control! Good luck, let me know if you need any more instruction!

Hi We have just arrived back in Wellington from overseas. Our house has a gas central heating system - the unit is Brivis Buffalo 20. What we would like to know is how cost effective the Brivis Buffalo 20...


Hi, if you are planning to change this system out, please stay with a gas fired central system as compared to a heat pump, they are much more cost effective. Heat-pumps have so many problems as there are more parts on them to go wrong. The compressor and condenser fan motor run year around as with a heat-pump they use what is called a reversing valve that changes the flow of freon making the indoor coil the outdoor coil and the same with the outdoor coil becomes the indoor coil in the winter season. I can recommend excellent gas fired units compared to the Brivis unit you have that is much more cost effective, such as the Bryant, Carrier, Goodman. I would go with a Bryant and talk to a dealer. Stay away from a heat-pump no matter what they tell you as I have worked on them for many years and if you have gas available, stay with gas. You will heat your home much faster and save on electricity as this heat -pump units need heat strips for back up heat as they can't keep up the temperature with out them. I hope I have been of help to you on this, and you will be kind when rating me as I know you will. Please contact a Bryant dealer as you will not regret it.
Sincerely,

Hi, I have a Brivis Buffalo. The heater will not run when the fan is set to auto even though the pilot light is on, and the wall controller shows heat on. When I set the fan to on, it just blows cold air....


My buffalo heater has just started doing the same thing about two hours ago, so will watch for any answers you get. My heater is over ten years old, maybe the heating element has "died"?
PLEASE can someone out there help us????????

Burners on our Brivis Buffalo 52 Ducted heater aren't getting gas


test thermosat for proper operation ie-broken wire-power if good jump stat and check if unit goes on if it does than stat internal problem or wiring problem and needs replacement or repair --if stat good check fan safety/high limit sensor if good would need to check and test thermocouple thats the tube that the pilot flame burns on may be enough to keep pilot burning but not enough to open valve for heat demand

Brivis Upflow/Downflow fan on continuously, no heat


depending on the year of the unit

if its between 1992-1999 it would be caused by the either the pilot not staying alight, or a faulty gas valve not opening,
These models start the fan on a time delay not tempreture so you will only get cold air circulating and when the thermostat is off the fan will stop.
(All models) if the fan is running regardless of the thermostat position an over heat sensor is faulty.

Brivis Buffalo 85 central heating unit - fan stays on problem


I have exactly the same problem. When I have the cover off there is a red light on, from what I can tell is the "Over Heat Fan" this seems to keep the fan on, and because it is in error prevents the system igniting. Haven't got a solution yet it only happened last night. Stu.
