Toyotomi Toyo 56 EE 2

Moved into a new place and Toyo revealed an EE8 upon initial start. I removed the lower left black elbow and spun the blower fan freely with my finger. That solved the EE 8 immediately, so the heater burned fine for a few hours. I woke up the next morning and it was cold, and sure enough the Toyo had moved to EE 6. So I cut the fuel off, replaced the filter with a new Goldenrod filter, applied new Teflon tape and started the Toyo once again. Now its revealing an EE 2. Things I have done since then: remove fuel sump filter, check to make sure valve is open, bled air from the line, pushed the red reset. Nothing seems to make it go away. I unplugged my heater for 30 min, upon a last resort from reading another FixYa guide. It's still giving me EE 2. I hope its simple. The stove is a Laser 56 and after turning it on, it reaches the point where it flashes power and Med burner status lamp together and makes a fairly audible chugging, thumping sound for 2 min then reveals the EE 2. Thanks for any suggestions. I can not afford to have this stove tuned right now.

SOURCE: laser 72 wont fire up

I have just been inside my 72 for the same reason. Have you cleaned the burner pot and heat exchanger lately? If not it is time. What makes these things work is a burner mat in the bottom of the pot that will eventually go bad. if this occurs you must change it out, if it looks good ( looks unburned) and whole and attached to the pot then your problem is with the igniter or with the combustion sensor or a clogged fuel pot inlet fitting. The first thing I would check is the easiest, disconnect the fuel line from the inlet to the pot, remove the screws and pull it out, it may be kind of stuck in there so a little rotation usually helps. When out, hold one end up to a light and see if you can see unobstructed light through it, if not, clean it out using a piece of wire or if you have access to a set of acetylene torch tip cleaners use those until it is good and clean, re-install and try that. If no good I would disassemble the burner pot and heat exchanger and give it a good cleaning and inspection. If you go that far there are a couple of things to watch out for. First is when you go to remove the burner ring it comes off in a counter clockwise rotation, there are three pins set in the pot that hold it in place and if they are carbon encrusted it won't want to turn and DO NOT I repeat DO NOT try to horse it off, you will break the upper burner ring mounting arms and I have been told by my parts guy that they are unobtainable now. I speak from experience, I did it and had to weld it back together, no big deal if you can but if you have to take it to a welding shop it will cost you a few bucks. My suggestion is to take a large flat blade screw driver or better yet a brass or steel rod about a quarter of an inch in diameter and go down along side the upper ring and LIGHTLY tap around the lower ring to try to loosen up the gunk and try again, keep this up as long as you have patience and hopefully it will come out. If not you can send it to a Toyo repair station or horse it out and have it fixed. When you get the ring out the next issue after a good vacuuming and cleanout is the igniter unit, it will be stuck and if you cannot turn it you can heat up the burner pot around it with a propane torch until very hot and let it cool and repeat a few times until you can get it out, ( I suggest either taking the pot outside or running your shopvac over it when you do it) if you break the ceramic it will cost close to a hundred bucks to replace. If you are still with me, now for the cleaning part, if the burner mat has lifted from the bottom of the pot anywhere, it must be replaced and it will be burned up in the places this has happened. Give it a good scrape down and shining up with sand paper until no carbon or old glue remains and vacuum clean and wipe it with a solvent until clean. The new burner mat comes with a tube of adhesive and it takes about half of it to secure the mat down, a thin even coat is needed with no puddling, use a small one inch chip brush to coat it and brush it all in even strokes in one direction and then 90 degrees off to create a cross hatch pattern. Place the burner mat down and using your fingers press it into the adhesive until you have covered the whole mat, do not leave any piece unpressed. At this point you can clean out the heat exchanger by flushing it out with a hose outside, be warned, it is messy, lots of carbon and soot come out so pick a suitable location like a cleanable sink or out back somewhere. One other thing, when you go to remove the large gasket that seals the burner pot top to bottom, take piece of rigid paper, like a cereal box, and carefully slide it onto it and back on, don't pick it up by any means, it will crumble and you will have to spend another thirty bucks or so. I have learned most of this from my local parts guy and from the school of hard knocks, so I hope this helps. JP

SOURCE: Toyo Laser 56 EE2 message--no flame? valves open and clean filter

You might of got type 2 fuel oil. If it is a smaller tank sometimes the fueler doesn't clear the line before filling and you'll slug down some type2 which will snuff the flame.
Check to see if the filler kinked a line outside while filling.
Just an Idea...

Toyo stove laser 73 throws a EE 2 code and back fan will not come on.

EE 2 can be caused by a couple of things but is usually a fuel issue or a flame rod problem. The circulation fan will not come on until the burner has warmed up. The combustion blower should start almost as soon as you turn the heater on. Turn the heater on and listen for the combustion blower. If it doesn\'t start, do you get an error code? If the blower started wait for the fuel pump to come on. It will start when the burner lights come on. If the fuel pump makes a loud ticking or thumping sound, it isn\'t getting any fuel. Check the fuel filter and the strainer in the fuel sump. Make sure the valve is turned off at the barrel before removing the fuel strainer. If the fuel pump is working normally, does the heater light up. If it doesn\'t, check the igniter. You can check that first if you want and have a clamp on ammeter. Place it around one of the igniter leads and you should read 2 to 4 amps when you turn the heater on. If the heater does light but then cuts off after about a minute, clean the flame rod. Unplug the heater before removing the flame rod because it may kill the circuit board if the heater is plugged in and the flame rod touches ground. Let me know what you find.

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.

It saying ee8 blower

EE8 is for blower motor malfunction. It could be the motor, bearings or the speed sensor.First I would either remove the exhaust pipe from the back of the heater or take the front cover off of the heater and remove the black rubber boot from the fan (easiest). Then use a pencil or screwdriver or something similar to reach into the fan and try to turn it. Carbon builds up on the exhaust fan over time and may cause the fan to stick. Turning may break the carbon loose and free up the fan. If that doesn't get it, you are probably going to need a new blower motor.

On l-56 stove an error code EE 8. what is this and can it be repaired?

The blower motor is not working properly. Turn the stove off and remove the front cover. Remove the lower baffle in the front. Remove the black hose that is about 1 1/2" in dia. If it breaks don't be surprised. Stick a pencil in the hole and spin the fan. Keep trying until it spins freely. If it spins freely from the start the motor is burned. Put the black hose back on and try to start. IF the hose broke you will need a new one. For now put some electrical tape around the break to get you going.

Keep us posted.

Showing ee 8 wont start

Remove the front cover. Remove the 1 1/2 inch black hose that has a 90 degree bend into the silver box. With the stove OFF stick your finger in the hole and try to spin the fan. It may take a few times but keep trying it should break free. Once free the stove will work. If it spins freely and still gives the EE8 you wll need a new motor.

Toyo laser 73 error code EE8. What does that mean?

All error codes are explained on the lower left side of the heater. The EE8 message is for the combustion blower motor. If your stove has been unused for the summer you may get away with just spinning the blower wheel by hand to free it up. If this does not work you are in for a new motor or assembly. Either way you need to clean the blower and heat exchanger.

We just got oil after not using our toyo stove since last Summer. when I turned it on and push the on button it flashes 12:00 then a second push of on button briefly shows temp then goes to EE8, I can't...

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.

Need a service manual for laser 30 toyo stove

Remove the flex hose from the back of the stove. If there is a small hole in the back of the stove, stick a pencil in there and spin the motor. Try to start the stove. If the motor won't spin at all or if it spins freely and the stove still shows an EE8 you need a new motor.

You or your local dealer can change the motor in 30 minutes.
