    There is no E17 code for MPI products. Take another look and when you write back tell us your model and how long it has been in service. That will help us a lot.

I have had the intake portion of the outside intake/exhaust fitting get packed in by freezing up during a windy storm, cutting off the intake air and giving an error 17. Had to get up on a ladder and chip away the packed snow and ice to open up the airway.

Pull the front trim and grill, in the right side of the cabinet (lower right) you'll see the gas valve with a rubber tube going to it from the blower housing , trim about a 1/4" from each end and reinstall. Also check the ends on all other rubber hoses.

Yea there is an e17 error code on at least the monitor gf3800. the error code means according to the manual and other online resourses means that the fan is blocked, the intake or output vent is clogged, or there is insufficient fuel due to another appliance running on the same either lp or natural gas using the pressure. Apparently there are other reasons for the error code, as mine is also flashing e17 and all vents are clear, fan operates normally, and this is the only lp appliance I have in the house. Searched the internet for answers and only found the same question. hope someone figures this thing out and posts it somewhere (anywhere) on the net. you figure it out, let me know.

    same error code. unit shuts off and does not heat. I had griffith energy and they were raping me so I switched. after they removed the tank I noticed dry grass in the lines, shoved down the line. new company cleared out what they could and said it was working fine. now this. don't ever use griffith energy. they lie, are overpriced and will sabotage your system before they leave.

Monitor MPI it flashes F 13 or 14 & smells, I had it cleaned 6 months ago

The codes are "E" Codes. an E13 is no fuel. E-14 means flame rod malfunction. Unplug the heater then reconnect, this will reset the heater. Try your red prime button. Could also be the fuel pump or your fuel source feed line isn't flowing fuel.

E-14 code mpi monitor 2400

It sounds like you have a fuel problem, check to see if there is some kind of blockage in the line or at the tank value.

I have a MPI 41 monitor heater. k-1. runs for a bit and shuts down..88:88 appears as well as the orange indicators do. they flash together. any suggestions. I also had a repair man here twice and still...

How long is a bit?
Sounds like the clock is faulty - Did the repair man disconnect it from the mains? (Turn it off and on again! ;)
Does the clock have battery backup?
Is the mains power steady?
Is the time set correctly?
Does your unit have child lock?

My light won't ignite on my mpi 441 monitor

this morning my heater, monitor 411, was running fine as always.
while it was running the power company came to work on a pole and turned the power off. it was down for about three hours. once power was restored it wouldn't come on.
the pilot light is off but I'm not sure if it's suppose to be while not running.I've tried priming it with three pumps, resetting by unplugging, beleeding the line, all don't work.
it's suppose to be 22f tonight so I could sure use some help.
oh, I have a manual but, of course, it doesn't cover the problem. I also called the company but got a voice mailbox...go figure.
somebody please help!

I have an MPI monitor heater model gf 1800. It keeps flashing E17. why?

My GF 1800 was flashing the e17 code as salenski_mar said.If all is clear around vent pipe, sufficient fuel in tank,ect. take the front cover off the unit,2 sheet metal screws on bottom side left and right(remove power first)on the left side of my unit there is a round black barell shaped container called a heat exchanger.Located about halfway up a small panel with 2 white tube shaped wires going into it.remove 4 screws on this panel and remove the panel.
There are 3 electrodes here . carefully clean these with a rag or fine sandpaper.
Reassemble and retry the heater.I watched a heating tech do this to my unit and charge me $75.00 last year.Did it again this year and I saved a service call.Actualy I believe he used a $20.00 bill instead of sandpaper but clean the flame sensor and it may work.worth a try.
