Question about Heating & Cooling

1 Answer

Hi, I have a Brivis Buffalo. The heater will not run when the fan is set to auto even though the pilot light is on, and the wall controller shows heat on. When I set the fan to on, it just blows cold air. It seems that the signal from the control box is not getting to the heater unit.

    Hi there, I ended up getting a Brivis tech to take a look at the heater. First visit, he thinks the heater not working was due to the block filter, so he cleaned it. The heater worked for three days then died again. The tech attend again and find it is actually the gas valve which needs to be replaced, and the heater has been working ever since. Hopefully this helps with your issue.

My buffalo heater has just started doing the same thing about two hours ago, so will watch for any answers you get. My heater is over ten years old, maybe the heating element has "died"?
PLEASE can someone out there help us????????

I have a brivis buffalo 85 ducted heating system, from last few days it doesn't come hot air only fan is running. pilot lamp also not with flame. ignation is working. I was turm blue color lid to pilot...


you need a new thermocouple. u can either get one from a plumbing store but the can be a bit fiddley to fit or u can get the proper Brivis one it just pulls out and u put the new one in. then u have to re light the pilot light. make sure u hold it down for at least 45 sec to make sure that it is getting hot enough when u release it it will stay alight then turn gas valve to the on position

Brivis buffalo 85 main burner not coming on pilot light is on fan comes on ???


If the pilot is on the thermo couple is ok. Could possibly be a faulty temperature limiting switch, it may be stuck and just needs a spray of WD40 or similar product. Then again I could be completely wrong.

Brivis Buffalo 15 not blowing air.


This sounds like a flame proving fault, so what's more than likely happening is the unit isn't sensing the flame. You'll see a small metal rod sticking down infront of the burner on the opposite side as the ignition source. Remove that rod, and clean it with some scotch bright. If you know how to work a volt meter you can test this part. Take the wire off the flame rod, place your meter leads in series with the wire and flame rod and set it to micro amps DC. Fire the unit up, and when your main burner lights you'll want to see a minimum of 1micro amp DC. If you're getting a higher reading than that and it still cycles I'd be suspicious of the grounding of the burner, or the ignition control! Good luck, let me know if you need any more instruction!

Burners on our Brivis Buffalo 52 Ducted heater aren't getting gas


test thermosat for proper operation ie-broken wire-power if good jump stat and check if unit goes on if it does than stat internal problem or wiring problem and needs replacement or repair --if stat good check fan safety/high limit sensor if good would need to check and test thermocouple thats the tube that the pilot flame burns on may be enough to keep pilot burning but not enough to open valve for heat demand

Brivis Buffalo 85 central heating unit - fan stays on problem


I have exactly the same problem. When I have the cover off there is a red light on, from what I can tell is the "Over Heat Fan" this seems to keep the fan on, and because it is in error prevents the system igniting. Haven't got a solution yet it only happened last night. Stu.
