SOURCE: 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.

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

I have a Brivis Buffalo 85, pilot light is on main burners will not ignite when turned on? It seems like gas isnt allowed to bar which turns on main burners


Usually a thermocouple or similar device is employed to allow fuel to flow once the unit sees that there is sufficient heat to ignite the fuel. Otherwise it can be a fuel valve that "sees" an unusual flow of gas which sets off the safety.

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.

Pilot lights up but would not fire up into heating, I have brivis buffalo 85


This is the proper cycle of a furnace and what should happen.

Inducer motor kicks on, it runs for a little bit, about 3-5 seconds, then you should see a bright yellow glow, this is the igniter, shortly after, you should hear a click and the gas should start to flow, almost immediately it turns to a blue flame. Then your igniter should turn off and the blower motor start up.

If the pilot turns on and the gas ignites, then shortly after the unit shuts off, chances are this is your blower motor. It is not starting up, then the heat limit is reached in your unit and the safety shuts it off.

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

Hi. Brivis Buffalo not igniting


Okay,

first and for most do not light burners manually, if that chamber is filling up with gas and you light that sucker you risk the chance of causing an explosion or a blow back that will burn you. What you need to address is

-are the burners clean
-is there proper gas entering the gas valve
-is there proper gas to the manifold
-is the flue product being exhausted properly
-is my exchanger sooted up
-is my gas valve working properly


pm me for walk through steps

Heating isn't working, can't find the red button to relight the pilot


Many times the knob to turn the gas on on the valve is also the pilot knob. Turn it to pilot and hold it down while you light the pilot. Hold it for up to a minute and release. If the pilot stays on then turn it to on. If not you need a new thermocouple.
