Alan,
The problem is the quarter inch bore section of pipe.
The pump just can't cope with the amount of air in this section.
You could try purging the air from this pipe to initially get the heater up and running (but if fuel manages to drain back out of this wide section between uses of the heater you will be back in the same situation again).

To see if the pump can pull fuel through the quarter inch section you can manually operate and bleed the pump as follows:-
Disconnect both electrical connectors from the pump and isolate them.
Make a "permanent" connection to battery negative from one pump contact.
Connect another cable to battery positive (preferrably with a fuse in line) and dab this onto the other pump connection to operate the pump.
(One dab = one squirt of fuel).
Then with the piping removed from the output side of the pump, put your finger over the hole to prevent air re-entering the pump.
Dab contact as many times as necessary to purge the air from the pipe and have squirts of fuel leaving the pump.
Re-assemble and reconnect as usual.

GOOD LUCK


E/boat Steve

Lack of observation here also.
A big welcome from this neck of the woods too, Alan.


Another wrong observation:-
I thought that this thread had finally run it's course and I was just talking to myself. Smile

Hi Steve, you didn't notice me looking over your shoulder and copying what you were writing then. Smile

Came across an interesting fault a few weeks ago that is worth remembering, the copper supply pipe had been cut with a hacksaw instead of a proper mini tube cutter. It had sliced a small flap from the wall of the rubber joining piece because of the sharp edge, made a lovely one way valve and prevented fuel reaching the furnace but almost impossible to spot when inspecting the lines.

Hi Everyone.
I have been following the discussions and hope someone can answer a couple of questions

I have a D3LC on my boat that has been working fine
Now it runs for about an hour and switches off with the green light on the stat flashing any ideas?

I have bought a timer module which I hope will give me fault codes but am unsure of the connections and if I need the relay as indicated I cant find any reference to my heater number 25 1822 01

Hoping someone can help

Cheers

Paul

Lamplighter... I Have a 5kw Webasto on my boat and if that ever stops it is down to battery voltage dropping too low. Indicated firstly by a rapid flashing then 3 long flashes of the green control light. Hope this helps

Hi Jimbo thanks for the reply, I am pretty sure its not voltage related as I am connected to the mains

The unit will not fire up at all now and still shows flashing green light which again points to an overheat ( 3 times and a reset)

I have now managed to connect up the 7 day timer which gives fault diagnoses and that indicates an overheat, I suspect the sensor has failed.

The paperwork I have says I can reset it using the timer but it doesnt say how. I dread to think how much the dealer wants to do it, I can replace the sensor myself

If anyone knows how to reset using the timer I would be extremely grateful

Cheers
Paul
