Does anyone on here use Toyostoves? I have the laser 73 model and i was wondering if anyone has had any major problems with them or maybe some advice on getting them to run better. Pretty much any info you can offer.

Im not the only one here. Does anyone have an oil miser or something similar? Does anyone still burn No.2 at all. Do they even sell No.2 out east? Can you even fart out east? :bag:

Toyos are kerosene, right?

I'll admit, I have several kero stoves and my best one is a tiny Kerosun, always start it and shut it down outside, great little stove.

I had a Toyo but not that model, just the simple little cylindrical 22K BTU unit.

A Google search found this "tune up and rebuild kit" for the Toyo 73. If you look at the parts list in the tuneup kit, that should give you an idea of what might be going wrong if you are having trouble.

Thanks man, when the tax man says here you go i might pick this one up. It kind of seems as soon as i do anything with the stove it wants to act up. So this year i didnt even change the filter or anything. And so far im way ahead fuel wise from yesteryear, but this year is super warm compared to last. I have a 200 gallon tank and last week when i checked it was close to half full. A far cry from last year when i burned close to 500 gallons the whole year. High temps plus new insulation in the house must be the culprit.

Yes I have Toyostoves. I have two 73s, OM22s and the hot big water heater. When oil started to rise I thought that being able to heat one zone at a time would save me money. So I had 6 OM22s, two 73s. they work well. the OM22 is cheaply made and now looking at service costs it's not so good (tough to get serviced now). They have to burn K1 or you have problems. They have paid for themselves but with oil going up they are not cost effective anymore. I do use them in the spring and fall just b4 lighting up to warm a room or two. Lousy service and getting them fixed is expensive and there are not many dealers left - the 73 is MUCH better made. I could fire the whole farm with mine but coal is much cheaper and better. So for my applications they are vastly inferior to coal in just about any area you choose to discuss with one exception. For small areas say under 1000 sq ft or so coal stoves are too much. In that appliocation I prefer pellets. F**k the Arabs.

Finally! Someone who isnt afraid of burning diesel. Yeah i hear you on the house size vs coal stove. If i were a bit further north it might make sense but being where i am up here and time spent away from home the toyo makes due for now. This winter i had no problems with it. Do you have any tips or summer month cleaning ideas for the toyo that you do? I have a toyo repairman down the road but hes pricey so anything i can do myself would cut the cost. Any help or preventive maintenance clues would me much appreciated.

I missed the part you are from Alaska. I burn anthracite as I realized I am reasonably close to the worlds best fuel but I am a slow learner. TIp 1 is, only buy the 73 the OM22 is junk. Tip 2, only burn diesel/kero whatever you may call it. Tip 3, learn that not all keros are the same!!!!. I use a SG pyknometer and measure SG - I can't remember the numbers but look at the fuel - great kero is a delicate pink fuel. Never use heating oil #2 or #1, it HAS to be KI. You are in oil ville research this point carefully - in my part of the world heating fuel just get worse and worse. If you use the best fuel the 73 needs no maintenance period - 56s are good too. If it is sooting up you are using crappy fuel. Alsheating in Maine has for years been promising to develop a video on maintenance. Make sure that your mains power is clean. Always reset the clock after a power outage the 2:00AM cleaning is vital even in the summer. Remember all these fuels pick up water during summer humidity so make sure your stuff is fresh. Nothing screws up those little pumps like a little water. Good luck.
