Laser 72 exhaust blower noise

Starting several months ago the exhaust blower makes a constant, steady racket. Local dealer says it is probably fan blades fouled with carbon (as it is in the exhaust stream) or maybe a bad bearing. Being a cheapskate I would like to try to fix it myself. Owners literature is long gone. Does anyone have experience with this problem, and know where I can get schematic and/or parts? If it is really just carbon I should only need gaskets.

I have a laser 72. Several years ago, it began making a racket sounded like the squirral cage fan was hitting something. The only way I found to fix the problem was to remove the blower assembly case and place a small, about 1" long, piece of rubber tubing between the bottom of the motor and the case. This pushed up slightly on the motor which releived the fan. Randy

The combustion blower sucks in clean air so it has no place in the exhaust stream. hence no carbon build up. the blades of it look like a vacuum disk on a vacuum cleaner. if the fan was recently rebuilt, make sure of the placement of the bushings. if one is misplaced the fan will rub on its housing and make all kinds of racket.

Clicking noise when turning on rear air


Do you still have the paperwork from the first time the dealer fixed it? It should show what parts or work that was performed. There also maybe some kind of limited warranty involved with the repair.

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.

Error EE 8 is showing what could be the problem???


EE 8 indicates a problem with the combustion blower. If the blower is running the problem is with the sensor. Make sure the wires for the sensor haven't come unplugged. If the sensor is bad, you will need a new blower. If it isn't running then the problem may be soot and carbon build up on the exhaust fan blade. You will have to remove the fresh air hose on the back of the heater or the rubber boot inside the heater to reach the fan blades. Use your finger or something to reach in and turn the fan blades. You may hear the sound of the carbon breaking loose. Turn it until it spins freely. Let me know if you need anything else.

Error reading ee8


EE 8 is for a blower motor problem. It could be the sensor that checks the blower speed or it could be the blower not running. If the blower is running, the sensor is bad and you will need a new blower. If it isn't running then you may be able to fix it. Sometimes on the Laser 73, soot and carbon will build up on the exhaust fan blades. Remove the fresh air hose, that is the rubber on the back, and look for the fan blades. If you can see them turn the heater on and see if they are turning. If not turn the heater off and try to turn them with your finger. If you hear a noise like something rubbing when you turn it or feel some resistance, keep turning it until the noise stops or it frees up. Now turn it on again and see if the fan runs. If you don't have anywhere local to get parts I can get them for you. You can contact me at nitensheaterservice@earthlink.net I may also have a used blower that will work.

Noisy when operator...especially during start-up. A deep rumbling...a bearing wearing out? Vibration...something loose Thank you.


Depending on how much the heater has been used, you may just have carbon/soot built up on the exhaust fan blades. This can be remedied by removing the blower assembly and cleaning the exhaust fan blades. They are the set on top. If could also be a bearing as you suggest but I would check the fan blades first. Let me know if this doesn't fix the problem.

Plastic fan cowling ring is loose, strikes fan blades


No. Removing the ring probably won't significantly affect cooling, but the misalignment indicates either a missing or loose mounting screw or a bent or broken tab. The problem is more likely the fan mount; failure to properly repair the problem will invariably lead to additional, more severe problems later.
