Soot is formed when the fuel combustion is incomplete. Incomplete combustion may occur if the fuel is low, air and fuel mixture is not correct, wrong size of burner orifice with respect to the fuel used ( propane or natural gas).
Soot can be removed by wiping it off with a nylon scrubbing pad dipped in grease cutting solution. Check also the fire tubes for soot or carbon build up.

I have a Vulcan lg400 propane fryer I have used 4 times at outdoor catering events over the last year yesterday while using it it began what I would call backdrafting. could low propane level in bottle...


It sure did. Never use a gas fryer in low gas pressure for a long time for soot will build up inside the fire tubes.
Check and clean fire tubes, make sure that the flue is not restricted and there should be no air entering the flue.

Soot coming out of flu


Hi there.
Soot coming out of the flue indicates poor flame quality and probably carbon or soot build up on fire tubes.
Have a technician check the gas pressure and the fire tubes for verification and cleaning if needed.
Regards.

Deep fryer ignites but burner flames will not enter cylinders


Hi there.
Fire tubes may be clogged with soot. Have a technician inspect and clean the fire tubes for soot deposits/ build ups.
Check also if there is no air or ventilation directed on flue as it will push the flames back to the burners.
Regards.

Our Rinnai gasheater is in 'n working condition but since we used it the white walls and ceilings are covered with black marks - I am worried that it could be dangerous - any advice?


Unfortunately, you failed to mention the Model Number and whether its a flue-less or Vented unit. In either case, the black streaks you see on the walls and ceilings is soot. If it's a flue-less unit, this is an indication that the unit has not received routine maintenance on a regular basis. The sooting is caused by a dirty or clogged burner or low gas pressure.

Also, burning scented candles and operating the heater at the same time, will cause soot. Not from the heater, but from the candles. All candles soot, but scented candles soot more than others. Combine them with the warm moist heat and they will soot 50 times worse. If this is the case, it's the candles sooting, not the heater. Stop burning the candles while the heater is in operation.

Is the soot dangerous? Yes, to the point that you are breathing it in, when it;s floating in the air. The sooting didn't occur over night, it has been doing it for sometime. You finally realized it, when you saw the black streaks. Stop using the heater until it is professionally serviced by and authorized Rinnai Service Technician and the walls and ceiling are cleaned.

You can either remove the soot yourself or have it professionally done. Then, you should prime paint the walls and ceiling with a sealer like Kilz, before repainting. All curtains or draperies should be washed or dry cleaned. All furniture and carpeting should be vacuumed thoroughly.

I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

Soot coming out of flue (chimney) on the back of the fryer.

Is there an easy way to get access to the rear vent to clean away soot and buildup?


You have to dismantle the back panel to have access in cleaning the flue. Soot formation or carbon build up on fryers are due to low operating gas pressure. When the fryer receives lower than the nameplate rating gas pressure, the flame on burners will be of poor quality (yellow flame) which will in turn produce soot/ carbon.

I'm looking for the service manual for a Rayburn solid fuel cooker


What do you need to know? They are so simple. Clean out space under hot plate now and again to prevent soot build up under the flue outlet space, have chimney swept now and again..(annually depending on use) .look in flap on bottom of flue pipe should tell you if needs sweeping.

Hi-E2 350 heater trips thermal switch on exhaust collector after 10-15 minutes of run time. Went through the manual tested all gas and air pressures with digital differential manometer, adjusted to within...


Check the condition of the heat exchanger. If it is heavily sooted from prior to adjusting gas pressure it will not vent properly. Check for downdrafting or blockage in the flue pipe if the heat exchanger is not sooted.

If the heat exchanger is sooted a good steam cleaning or even a trip to a car wash should remove enough soot for it to return to operating normally.
