Question about Toyotomi OM-148 Water Heater w/ Chimney Kit

1 Answer

I ran out of kerosene for my Toyotomi OM-148, I now have fuel and cannot get it to re-fire. It takes approx. 17 seconds once I restart to get a warning light. Please advise where I live I am looking at a 100 dollar service call just to show up. I did remove the fel bowl to try and get it to bleed but nothing came out?

If it worked fine before you ran out of gas then you have air in the fuel line. You need to open the fuel line just enough to get fuel to weep at the fitting in back of the unit. Press the red bleed button twice, and no more, to prime the unit. It may take half an hour before you finally get fuel throughout the system again. It's a pain but you've got air in your line still.

GX90-715A wont stay fired

1) Product manual has burner info page 11, maintenance 12, and troubleshoot flow charts starting page 17
Otherwise, Rheem does not post service manuals.

2) Post question on pro water heater forum.

3) Is air intake clear? Is the burner sooted? Is the flame large and clear blue? Is the vent obstructed? Does air draft when blower activates?

Replace thermocouple gas water heater

Thank you for the brand. Approx how old is water heater? 2nd and 3rd digit of serial number are year of manufacture.
For general instructions:

Reliance is AO Smith, and air intake is located on bottom of tank.
Inspect and Clean intake.
Do NOT underestimate need to keep air intake clean because the arrestor screen is fine mesh and once clogged will cause heater to fail. Older models might need full replacement and at least parts.

Product manual?
These gas water heaters are changing quickly today. The Reliance site shows the 909 but not 805
The older designs are different, but instructions shown above will help.

Burner fires but goes out after a few minutes.

Are you 100% sure there is water in it, try opening the pressure relief valve slightly to verify tank is full. If it is full check that by-pass valves at rear of tank are in normal operation position. When you say won't run very long, how long would that be approx.?

How do i reset my boiler after having oil delivered, it ran out 2 days aggo just had 1000 litres delivered how do i getr the boiler up and running again????

While standing in front of the oil burner, on the left side you will see the fuel pump. On the bottom corner towards you, you will see a bleeder screw. If you put a cup or other vessel under this screw, loosen the screw, then hit the reset button it will start to push oil out the bleeder. Once the oil comes out a clear red liquid, close the bleeder screw and the unit should fire up. Hope this helps
