Check your copper pipe connections where the flared pipe connects. Also just inside the heater near the pump, there is a connection that might have come lose.

Re: exhuast smell(odor)

My Toyo l60a has a small amount of raw fuel leaking directly under it onto the drip pan. Maybe a drop or 2 every couple hours. It gets very little use, but now that the weather is turning colder, we will use it. This problem just came up. The fuel supply line is tight and dry. It seems to be coming from the iddle of the bottom (?) of the heater. Any help or ideas would certainly be appreciated! Thanks from Alaska! Dave

Re: exhuast smell(odor)

No, because the whole combustion chamber and piping is a closed system with the exception of the intake and exhaust which is a double walled pipe. you might check the tightness of your K-1 fuel line or look for leaks under the filter compartment where the solenoid pump is located. the fuel goes into the chamber via a small copper line with a silicone gasket under the gland nut.

My Reddy Heater 70,000 starts and runs fine, but it is giving off a strong odor. We put the recommended (fresh) kerosene fuel but this did not improve the strong odor.

sad to say but many if not all kerosene heaters put off offensive smell when burning . it's the nature of the beast .

I have a toyostove laser 30 and it leaks at the bottom (there is no parts or stove damage) and it does not burn cleanly. I will smell terrible oil fumes after every heating cycle. What should I do? I have...

If you have a A model Laser 30 you will have to take the stove apart to get to the fuel sump pipe. 9/16 wrench will tighten it. If it's a B model you can reach it on the lower right side of the heater.

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.


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.

My toyo lazer 30 won't start, and the EE2 problem comes up.

With an EE2 message you have a problem with the stove igniting during start up. If you continue to try you will end up with an EE22 and the stove will be locked out. If so, un plug for 20 minutes. While you are waiting check out you fuel system. Low fuel, no fuel, dirty filter on tank and stove. Be sure to bled the air off the top of the filter when you change it.

Keep us posted.

Exhuast smell(odor)


If your Laser 56 is giving off fumes it is probably coming from the igniter gasket and the igniter guide gasket. The igniter gasket has broken and needs to be replaced with the new style. The new style cost about $12. The guide gasket is the fiber gasket around the hole the igniter goes in. It has seperated and all you have to do is smash it back together. If you have high temp silicone or furnace cement, you can use either to seal the crack. Any toyotomi dealer can get you the new igniter gasket # 17185580.

Good luck,

Toyo laser 30 smokes and smell like unburned fuel when it ignites

If you just changed gaskets on your heater it is normal for it smoke a little bit when you first restart it. It should go away after a while though. If you smell unburned fuel you have a leak somewhere, or a spill. Check all your fuel line connections in the house. The back of the heater where the line connects, the firestop valve (the valve behind the pump that opens or closes the flow of fuel), and any connections in there behind the pump/fuel resevior. (sp) Check that they are tight. What has also happened to me is fuel has spilt and ended up along the back edge of the stove. you might be able to be crafty and unscrew all the screws at the bottom, to try to clean that up. It doesn't take much of a spill to create a very pungeant diesel smell.

I have used #2 in the summer. I have been told the difference between 1 and 2 is 1 has an additive so it won't free. I would use oil meant to be used as heating oil because it should be lower in sulfer.

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

EE2 code for toyo 56

Hi sammysamual,

My business is Laser Heating Service in the North Pole/Fairbanks areas of Alaska. An EE2 error code is usually fuel related. What does your Toyo do before the EE2 code shows up? The firing process is the burner button blinks green for 7-9 minutes, then it clicks up to the medium, yellow light which starts flashing. That is when the fuel pump starts pumping. If you hear a fairly audible tic tic, or thump thump coming from the fuel pump then that is your indication that the fuel pump is starving for fuel. You either have a fuel line restriction, too little fuel, a clogged filter, a clogged sump screen, or rarely, a failing fuel pump. Usually, it is a fuel line restriction.

If you hear no tic tic or thump thump and it just goes off on EE2 then the problem is in the burn chamber. You may have a carbon chain in the chamber causing the flame sensor to temporarily short out. You can clean the flame sensor, fuel nozzle, and igniter to resolve this problem until you can get your Toyo tuned up.
