My toyostove lazer 73 has too much soot

I just followed the directions from another fixya expert to try and correct and E2. The stove runs or a few minutes and then you get a strong kerosene smell and it ends up flashing E2. I've tried cleaning the white wire, red wire and gold nut. I unscrewed them all and tried to get the soot out but I still have an E2.

I am not a heating expert so take this with a grain of salt.
IMHO, a sooty burning oil burner (which kerosene is used in) is due to too much fuel or too little air. An oil burner consumes oxygen, therefore ventilation is required. A direct vent supplies makeup air and provides and exhaust path. Kerosene comes in a couple of different grades. K2 is generally used for heating.
SO, insure you have the correct type kerosene. Inspect your direct vent to insure it is drawing in air from the outside easily. Insure your control is not supplying too much kerosene.
The flame should not be red - that is a definite indication of too little air/too much fuel. If it is very blue, it may get blown out. Your manual should show you the perfect flame color.
If you are smelling kerosene, that would be a good indicator that something is wrong with your direct vent. Any leak between the exhaust section and the makeup air section will cause this. Reinstall the vent and insure the directions are followed. Moving the vent after installation is perfect for breaking the seals and creating the problem. Have you had any earthquakes lately?

The firing sequence for a L73 is blink, blink, blink, on the green burner light, then it clicks up to the medium, amber or yellow light...that's when the pump kicks on. If you hear click, click, click, or thump, thump, thump, that means the pump is starving for fuel. The problem is from the carburaot/sump back to the fuel tank. You may have icing in your line or a line restriction, no fuel, plugged fuel filter or plugged sump screen. You can thaw your fuel line, until you have a free flow of fuel and then push the red restart button on top of the sump. Try to restart your Toyo.

If you follow the firing sequence and hear no click, click, click or thump , thump, thump and your Toyo goes off on EE2 then you can have a dirty flame sensor...the whilte wire running to a U shaped part that is the ground for the entire unit. You can take ythe ytwo phillips screws out, turn the part to the side and wiggle it out. Clean it qith a green scrubby or sandpaper and put it back in. Be sure it points stright down. Then take out the igniter which are the red wires. Put a long screw driver in there and rattle it around real good. You are trying to shake any carbon cxhains off the burner ring that can be "shorting" the flame sensor. You can also removee the 1/2 inch flare nut from the fuel nozzle...brass yellow colored metal part, and put a paper clip or wire down that about 3 inches. That will clear any blockage in front or inside it. Put everything back together, hit the red reset button on the sump and re-fire your Toyo. You might get it going in this manner. If not, you may need a tuneup because your Toyo is too sooted up to run correctly. Try these things and post back!

Rust,

#1 and #2 are not the same at all. Toyo Laser 73 heaters should only use #1 home heating fuel or Water Clear Kerosene. If you burn #2 in your Laser 73 it will soot up in less than a week. It is a disaster, do not do it!!!
The difference between the fuels is the amount of carbon in them. # 2 has a lot of carbon and therefore more BTU's of heat per pound than # 1. All that carbon will end up on the burner, blower and in the heat exchanger. It will be the dirtiest job you have ever done.

SOURCE: getting code EE 2 on a laser 73

EE 2 usually has to do with the fuel. Does the heater make a loud ticking or thumping sound? That's the sound the fuel pump makes when its not getting any fuel. Check your filter, check the strainer in the fuel sump. Depending on how cold it is any water in the fuel line could be frozen blocking the fuel flow. You might also check the flame rod for soot. It can be cleaned with some steel wool.(nitensheaterservice@embarqmail.com)

Is it allright to burn part deisel with kerosine in a Toyo laser ignited heating stove?


Only if you want to stink up the house (more than just what the kerosene does) and don't mind dealing with a little soot on the walls and ceiling.

I wouldn't. But the choice is yours to make.

hope this helped you in some way. Please let me know. Thanks.

Showing ee 8 wont start


Remove the front cover. Remove the 1 1/2 inch black hose that has a 90 degree bend into the silver box. With the stove OFF stick your finger in the hole and try to spin the fan. It may take a few times but keep trying it should break free. Once free the stove will work. If it spins freely and still gives the EE8 you wll need a new motor.

Toyostove Laser 56 EE 2 error


Tim,

I have been working on Toyo's for 14 years now. During this time I have never seen a flame rod that was bad except ones that people have broken themselves. The rod is just a piece of heavy wire that is insulated against the pot. It is almost impossible to mess it up. Now, that being said, you can have a problem with the flame rod being dirty or sooted. Since your stove is so new I would look at the fuel system. If it is clean I would go after the burner mat. There have been mats lately on new stoves that have caused them to soot up. When this happens the flame rod gets covered with soot and gives the EE2 message. A new stove that has a burner mat problem would be covered by the warranty. Bad fuel that causes a problem will not be covered. The other thing that is not covered is a stove that has had an iced up the exhaust pipe. A good dealer should be able to help you get the stove going and explain the warranty.
