Ok so I bought a L 73 model two years ago and today I had fuel delivered in prep for the winter. When I turned the Toyo on it waited about 5 minutes before giving me an EE 08 error message. The manual showed blower motor trouble and I was bummed so I called a friend. He gave me the following information he learned from a Toyo dealer as a "temp" fix until a more thorough cleaning can take place. Apparently stuff (crusties, ash and burnt debris) have a tendency to build up around the blower motor fan which causes it to get stuck. This is not the large visible fan on the back, but the smaller internal one. There is a rubberized hose leading to the larger fan and a smaller flexible stainless exhaust next to it, which is the one I was told to remove. Once you remove the flexible exhaust get a flashlight and look into the back and you'll see the fan (or only about the 1/3 of it which is visible). Take a pencil eraser and gently remove the build up between the exhaust slats. I also used my craftsman shop vac which fit nicely right over the hole to remove the debris. Once you have all the soot, crusties and stuff removed the fan should be spinning at warp speed when you remove the shop vac. This took my literally about 10 minutes to disconnect, clean and reconnect. About 8-10 minutes later the unit was working great! Hope this helps anyone having similar problems.

Mercedes,

The blower motor is not turning, EE8. Take the black 1 1/2 inch rubber hose off and stick your finger in and spin the fan. Have the stove off when you do this. Once the fan spins freely you can try to start the stove.

My Laser 30 went into power saver mode by itself and now I can't get it out of said mode, otherwise it's working well.


Rick,
Sorry to hear you're having issues with your Toyo, first off do you have a manual for your stove? If not, you can download one online, I've included the link for your convenience.

Your Toyo has a series of control buttons across the top and/or the front, the "On/Off" button for the "Power Saver Mode" is located in the middle. You can turn the mode On or Off, though you actually WANT to utilize the Power Saver Mode. It's intended to prevent unnecessary ignitions on the stove, thereby lowering your electrical consumption as well as wear & tear on the stove. All you need to do is set a maximum and a minimum temperature and whenever the temperature is not within the parameters you've established the stove will then either ignite to heat the area to your pre--determined setting or shut off until the temperature is within the parameters you've established. If there is NO error code(s) showing, and the stove is running fine, then I would not be concerned. Though I do suggest you immediately download the manual, read it thoroughly, and when necessary use it to troubleshoot future issues.
I hope this helps you, good luck and stay warm!

Toyostove laser 73 displays ee 10. Toyo is brand new, no obstructions in flue, fuel tank is a good height, only pressed red button once for a second, blower fan works.


ONCCON,

EE10 is not good. This means you had a flame in the pot when there should not have been one. The red button is to be used very carefully. One time for one second. I think you have pushed the button too much and got a fair amount of fuel into the burner. Without pushing the red button try the stove again. If you burn out the fuel in the burner the stove will operate normally. If the code continues I would look at the hook up for the air and exhaust to be sure they are correct. If they are backward it can cause an EE10.

Keep us posted,

Tom

I have a Toyo Lazer 30. Often times it doesn't run for a few days (I also use wood heat). So then when I go to start it up (after a few days) or if the thermostat tells it to start, it might run for a few...


Ticking is a sign the heater is not getting anough fuel to keep running. Check your manual and see if there is a valve inside your heater that controls fuel flow. Make sure it is open all the way. Also check to see if you have the valve on your fuel tank open wide enough to allow fuel to flow like it should. Another tip. Instead of turning your heater off all the way when you are using wood heat, why not just turn the temp on the heater lower then you know your home would get to with wood heat running. Adjust the temp to where you need it when you want the heater to run. (That way your heater stays primed.) The heater doesn't draw that much electricity. ;)

Hope I have helped.

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!

Do not buy a Toyo in Fairbanks.


You are right. The "service" in Fairbanks for Toyos is almost non-existant. My company has been tuning and servicing Toyos for over 12 years here in Fairbanks. We have tried to get a dealership but the main company, Toyo USA and the regional rep., REE refuse to allow us to be dealers. We have tried several times over the years. We buy parts in bulk from outside sources and pass the savings onto the customer.
A letter to Toyotomi or Toyo USA will not work. They don't care.
There is one person with a van that will "Tune" a toyo in your home. Don't use them. It is not possible to properly service a Toyo in your home. There is fiberglass and creosote dust that will get everywhere weather they use a vacuum or not. That's assuming they even clean your burner pot. Our company was started because of this poor service in this town. We operate by word of mouth only and have about 2 dozen regular customers.

Toyo stove laser 30


EE22 means that your Toyo failed to ignite 3 times in a row. You need to unplug it for 30 minutes to reset the circuit board. Then plug it back in, push the red reset button on the right hand side in the little hole towards the back and push the Power button. Your Toyo should ignite after that barring some other problem caused by running out of fuel.

I am assuming that you ran out of fuel which caused the EE2 error code originally. Sometimes, when you run out of fuel you can get water, ice, debris in the fuel line causing an obstruction or limited fuel flow. You may also get an air lock. You may need to crack the fuel line at the back of the Toyo where there is 3/4 nut and bleed the line. If you see no fuel or a small quantity of fuel then you will need to thaw and/or purge the fuel line in order to get fuel to your Toyo's fuel pump.There is also a screen in the sump which can get plugged with rust, debris from the bottom of the fuel tank so you may need to clean the screen in order to get fuel to the pump.

Lazer 56


Hi EJAKFbanks,

I believe by your description and my 8 years experience with Toyo Stove repair that you are missing part of the firing sequence. The firing sequence for a Toyo Stove L 56 is to blink on the burner light for 7-9 minutes, then it clicks up to the medium light (amber-yellow color). The medium light blinks and that is when the fuel pump kicks on and starts to pump. If the stove ignites, the medium light will glow for a second and then drop down to the low light (green) The low light will burn for awhile and at this time you will see a blue flame in the newer heat chamber models or a red glow, and perhaps some blue flame in the older heat chamber models, then the stove will kick up to the medium light for a bit, and then to the high light. An EE6 error code will show only when the flame is extinguished after actually taking place and a burn did occur in the chamber on low. An EE6 is usually one of 2 things: 1. There is an inadequate fuel supply for the stove to maintain a low cycle burn, or the medium, or high. Each cycle consumes more fuel than the prior one. Inadequate fuel supply can be due to a restriction in the fuel line such as icing like cholesterol in a persons arteries, or a plugged sump screen, blocked fuel line or filter, too low a quantity of fuel in the tank, or a fuel line that is not all gravity feed, as in, the fuel line runs down, down, and then up a few feet to get to the Toyo. In that case, the fuel has to rely on head pressure to get to the stove. Head pressure is the atmospheric pressure pushing on the fuel in the tank to force it up against the earth's gravity forces. Solution: You can find any restriction in the line, replace the filters, clean the sump screen, put heat on the fuel line to thaw any icing blocks. 2. An EE6 can be caused by a carbon chain developing from the burner ring, flame sensor or chamber wall to any metal part in the burn chamber. A carbon chain essentially "shorts" out the ground for the unit and the Toyo will shut off on EE6. Solutions:You can bang the side of the Toyo (Old frustrated Alaskan solution) which really just jars the carbon chain loose, clean the flame sensor, clean the fuel nozzle with a straight 3 inch wire, and stick a screw driver in the igniter (red wires) hole and rattle it around real good (another old Alaskan trick). Often, those three things will get your stove running again if it is a carbon chain. The problem will likely occur again, but it will buy you some time until you can get a tune-up done. Most likely, you need a tune-up. Question: When was your last tune-up? Toyo's should be tuned up every 2 years. Tthe book says every one year, but in my experience, every two years is the best bang for the customers buck. The three year mark usually begins showing signs of metal fatigue in other parts of the burn chamber/heat exchanger system so the costs rise a little each year, unless you are a lucky Toyo owner and for some odd reason, your stove can go 3 years between cleanings without any ill effect. If you get your stove running, run it hard on High for about 2 hours to clean and burn all the carbon out. Good Luck! toyotech, North Pole, Alaska

Hi ejohn,

There is no valuable, practical adjustment for the flame on a Toyo Stove. A yellow flame can be caused by several things. How old is the stove? When was the last tune-up? A dirty sooty carboned up stove will have a yellow flame. A breach in the flue pipe will cause a yellow flame. An incorrect installation of the flue and exhaust hoses/metal exhaust elbow will cause a yellow flame. In the last scenario, the intake will be hooked to the exhaust and the exhaust will be hooked to the intake ports of the flue pipe. A malfunctioning fuel pump can also cause a yellow flame. The wrong fuel can cause a yellow flame, too. Most likely, your stove is dirty and needs a tuneup. It should have a bright blue flame if it is clean, and operating correctly. You can download a manual at REE, Anchorage through a Google search. If you want a more detailed diagoses, write back and give me more detail and I can help you further. Toyotech
