Heater problems with MAN KAT 1

Beitrag von IrishKat1 » So 15. Jan 2017, 03:38

A few weeks back when I tried to turn the heater on, everything seemed to work but it didn't ignite. Today I checked the fuel output and that seems fine, so any assistance in sorting the problem would be much appreciated.

Alternatively buy a russian one: Planar http://www.autoterm.cz/en/produkty/83-planar-44d.html
There are some conversions described in the form. Simple, exhaust adapter is the most difficult to do.

Before you throw it away check if the glow plug is ok. You have to run it every few month for at least half a hour to keep in operating state.

If you throw it awaym throw it in my direction. :D

Hello,,

my Webasto/Eberspächer guy gave me 2 important rules for that specific heater.

1. Runntime after every single start, never less than 20 minutes.
2. Only wide open throttle. (Second notch at maximum but not more than to the small metal limit stopper. Otherwise you probably will get issues with your windscreen and you will definitely melt away)

I didn´t respect the second rule and got Problems too. And my one was brand new from that dealer. Fresh original Parts... That´s why i guess Peter is absolutely right. If is not a simple repair for you, change it. By the fact that you asked about the heater i would say it´s not easy for you to repair and i have only small doubts that it will be easier for you to replace it. The original ones are very loud, way to big, and spare parts are pretty expensive. The heater is not the most reliable piece of equipment in your truck.

Best regards

Sebastian

@emil:
Brauchst Du was zum Basteln bzw als Ersatzteilträger ?
Meine wäre verfügbar, ist grade rausgeflogen, blödes Teil :roll:
Hat früher immer einigermassen funktioniert, dann angefangen zu mucken. Im Endstadium nicht mal mehr gelüftet, hatte wohl diverse Probleme, brenntechnisch und elektrisch.....
Einmal hat sie sich dermaßen verschluckt, daß man in der Hütte nix mehr sehen konnte :shock:
Also, wenn Du die brauchen kannst, melde Dich !

Heater working perfect, wrong buttons being used due to not understanding the German language.
