Lazer 73: blower making a lot of noice

My heater is about 12 years old. It has never been serviced. Lately it has been making a lot of noice, particularly when it first starts up. A load hoarse whirling noice. Once it is running, the noice pipes down to just a loud, steady vibration sort of racket.I know it needs to be rebuilt, so what should I order for a complete rebuild? Can the bearings be replace in the blower, or do I need to replace the entire motor. The circulation fan seems to be fine.

G M,

Your stove does need to be overhauled. The vibrations are the blower exhaust wheel being out of balance due to carbon build up. If it has been vibrating for a long time you will need to replace the motor. The L73 motor bearings are hard to get off without either bending the shaft or breaking the rev sensor. The burner pot will be another part that may need changing. It may have a warped or cracked bottom. If this is so it needs to be replaced with a new one. The burner ring will have to be replaced as will the mat. Several gaskets will need to be on hand in case you break them. All toll the above will run around $400 or so. It's well worth it considering a new one is $1750 or so. The first thing you need; though, is a service manual. Get in touch with your local dealer and get one. It will make your repair much easier.

My lazer 73 is giving me a fan motor error code (EE 8) but I think my fuel pump might be out also. before I take apart the whole stove; is there a way to diagnose the fuel pump?

The fuel pump will make a loud thumping noise if it isn't getting any fuel to it. You can use a long screwdriver like stethoscope and listen to it to see if it is running. It won't start until you see the burner lights come on (about 3 minutes after you turn it on). There is a way also to hook 120vac to it with the fuel line off, but I will have to put that on here tomorrow after I look at one. As far as your fan goes, either take the exhaust hose off the back or remove the front and remove the black rubber boot from the blower motor (easiest). Then use your finger or a pencil and reach in and try to turn the fan. You may hear a slight crunching sound from carbon breaking loose. Keep turning until it turn free. You can use a shop vac to clean some out.

It saying ee8 blower on da laser 73

EE-8 is for a blower motor malfunction. It could be due to carbon build up on the exhaust fan blades. Remove the front cover of the heater. Now locate the blower. There is a black rubber boot that goes from the bottom of the heater to the blower. Remove that boot. Use your finger or a pencil or whatever to reach in the hole and turn the fan blades. You may here a crunching sound from the carbon breaking up. Turn it until it frees up. If it turned freely to start with, you probably need a new blower motor. If it was hard to turn and you free it up, you will probably be OK.Let me know what you find. I have a used blower for a Laser 72 that should work for your Laser 73.

Remove the front panel. Look for the "L" shaped rubber hose near the bottom that goes to the metal blower box. Remove the end of the hose at the blower box. Inside the opening you can see the blower fan blades. Using a pencil or other slim object, gently rotate the fan while the power is on. The blower should start on its own after you get it going. Let the blower run a few minutes to loosen itself up. Replace the hose and front panel. The blower fan tends to stick if the unit is turned off for long periods of time, such as from Spring until Fall. My Laser 73 blower sticks almost every year and I cure the problem doing the above procedure. HTH
