    I have a Wallis 30DT Heater. Today after giving me 4 and half years of trouble free warmth she decided to go cold on me. Anyone ever tore into one? I will be removing it to see if I can find out why it stopped putting out heat.

    It did not throw a fault and it still was heating but would not go full bore like it did when new.

    Any Ideas?

    Remove it and take it to them. I had my Webasto rebuilt last year after 10,000 hours of run time. Cost 300$

    Let us know what you find out John. Mine has been trouble free for 3 years so the clock might be ticking here too...

    Mine had been a pain in the ass since I bought the boat (new). Took it to Scanmarine last September. They told me it was all gummed up. I'd never filled the tank so whatever was put into it before I bought the boat caused the problem. They said use diesel not kerosene.
    I did pull it apart before I took it in and really didn't see a lot that I could do or I didn't want to get too deep. It was one mofo to get back together. The outer casing to me at least was one hell of a awkward jigsaw puzzle to get back into place.

    Consensus is to turn in.

    I will call Scan after I remove it today. Hopefully they will get it back to me this week.

    A very long shot and wish. At least it won't be as cold and I do have a big Buddy (propane) Heater.

    I looked at the website, it seems there is a bunch of diesel models and a few kerosene models?

    I would love to put a heater in happyhours but it would have to be mounted below deck which does not seem wise. I guess I’ll have to live without..

    Serenity has a small dc heater defogger, it works well for defogging but there isn’t any real heat coming out. I have a heater buddy in there but haven’t used it much over the years.

    I am going to have to do something for defogging happyhours, anyone got any experience with anything? I don’t really want to duct in anything.

    I have seen some really small dc defoggers, thought I would try one of those and just 3D print my own custom ductwork to get the air to the right spot.

    Hey Goat before you pull it. While its in the start up sequence, pull the wire bundle plug out of the bottom and wait for a minte then put back in and re-start. That fixed mine as it resets certain computer elements or whatever they are called and allowed the unit to produce heat along with the blower.

    I wonder if there is a hard reset button somewhere? It sounds like that’s what is happening in your procedure:)

    Update- I found this on another of their products, essentially the same thing:)

    I pulled the two cable connectors out tof the bottom this morning and plugged them back in. It seemed to work. Ran out of time at 12:45. Had to get ready for work and meet DB at Lowes. Scan did say that the Thermostat might be bad. Never comes off of low heat. Bill at Scan will let me borrow a spare one to see if that fixes it. If it does than a new one can be procured. Will have my Son in Law pick one up tomorrow night after work.

    Side note after this weekend and a few other days having frozen toes whiletrolling around. I am sticking a vent by the Helm for my Personnel Comfort. I
    It's good to be the Capt and Owner of the boat.:smoking33:

    Yes. The Capt. Likes a Warm, Soft, Pink, Comfort, Dry, (ok wet) place to call his Throne while fishing for Blackmouth. Call me occasion to reel in a silver fish; the other pink meat.

    Got a new thermostat control Tuesday afternoon. It was delivered to my daughter's home in Kenmore. After work I ran over to her house at 11pm to get it. An hour later I'm home and in the morning I can try it out.
