Question about Rinnai Toyostove Direct Vent Heater: Toyostove Laser 73 Shipping

2 Answers

Toyo Laser 73, starts, fires then goes out, flashes EE02

I've been fiddling with this for a couple weeks, it's the heater in my shop. So far I've checked and cleaned the flame detector, fire pot, fuel nozzle. I removed the fuel pump and disassembled and cleaned that. I have plenty of fuel in the tank and have good flow. The heater will start up as it should but will only run for a minute or so then shuts down and flashes EE 02.

    Update, the heater is fixed. I found a crack in the firepot, somehow I missed this the first time I tore it apart, I guess I wasn't looking for something like that. Anyway, I sandblasted the pot and welded the crack and problem solved!

    Thanks, Norm

    hello my heater wasn't working as well, showing this same EE 02 and was over flowing...we had a guy come here and tell us that there was something wrong with the fuel pump. you seem to know what your talking about so i was hoping you could help me...and tell me what to do about this...its middle of winter in northern Michigan without heat...please help.

    If the crack was on the bottom of the pot you did not do yourself any good by welding it. The bottom of the pot is concave and must be smooth. Your unit will operate OK for a while but it will not last. The only solution for a cracked pot is a new one. You didn't mention the mat or ring, both should have been replaced. Watch your flame closely. Any sign of a leaping yellow flame and it's time to change the pot, ring and install a new mat.

    Good luck,

    When you say you took the fuel pump apart and cleaned, did you really take the pump apart and remove the solenoid plunger? That would require you to have used a very small screw driver to remove two small screws from the bottom to remove the bracket which holds the plunger in. I do hope you did not go this far.

    Keep us posted.

If you have an EE2 and a flooded sump, you have a problem. Your fuel is contaminated and caused the sump valve to leak fuel into the sump when it was supposed to be closed. This fills the sump up and the valve gets stuck closed on the magnet. Fuel leaks by and spills over. The stove will light but only run for a short while. You may see an EE6 or EE2. When was the last time you changed the filter? Bottom line, if the flooding continues you will need to change the sump. I doubt the fuel pump is bad . Once the flooding is controlled you can check the pump. Remove the fuel line at the burner and put a cup under it. Try to start the stove. When the Med or Low burner light lights up you should see fuel. If not and there is no thumping noise the pump is bad.

Keep us posted,

air pocket in fuel line push reset button on the fuel sump, located right inside .

it sounds like it may be a clogged strainer located in fuel sump or a bad circuit board hope this helps

If you have too much fuel in the burn pot then you are getting no ignition. Repeated tries to get it to start just dumps more fuel into the pot.

I need to get replacement parts for my laser 73 stove and no one around seems to carry them? Any ideas?

Any dealer that sells new Toyo stoves should be able to help you.

I don't think the rules of this site will allow me to post the web address of the dealer I use; but typing "Toyotomi heater service" into Google pulled up quite a few dealers.

Hope this helps!

Toyo Stove ventilation

Alaska Cat,

No this is not right. You can remove the air hose for a short time until you can get another part, i.e., new flue pipe. The stove tech should have told you he would be back with a new part. As far as the igniter is concerned it could be replaced without removing the heater. Now, if you had flooded the unit trying to start it many times your mechanic might have had to take the unit out just to be able to clean it completely.

Stay warm,

Tom Hawkins

Toyo Laser 73 Flame goes out

You might have carbon build up in the heat pot, causing it to create a chain of carbon on the fuel rod. If the rod can not sense a flame the heater will turn off. A quick temporary solution is to give the fromt of the neat pot at the top where the flame rod is a tap to see if it loosens it. Start the heater up and see if it runs any longer. If it does, you need to have your heater cleaned, or clean it yourself. You might have a warped burner ring also.
