Diesel Heater Service
Like your gas appliances, your diesel heater should serviced annually if you use it regularly, or every 24 to 36 months if not used regularly. Diesel heaters become very dirty inside the burner, the wiring connections can become corroded, the ducting and fan can get blocked up and among other things, this can cause the unit some very serious damage.
A Diesel Heater Service can include, depending on the model, replacing the glow pin, burner and motor gaskets and fuel filter, and a general clean. These prices can vary depending on your particular model.
Please contact me with details of your RV and the diesel heater model number so I can give you an over the phone quote.
There are a few things you can do to help prolong the life of your diesel heater.
There is a wealth of knowledge on this webpage; http://www.letonkinoisvarnish.uk/Fault_codes.html This link shows the fault codes for the Eberspacher heater which can be helpful in determining what is wrong with your heater in the event that it doesn't run. The page is a little hard to navigate, but all the information is there and very helpful if you decide to service your own heater.
