The servicing and repair of vehicle and marine heaters has always been a mystery causing frustration and anxiety to owners. On many occasions they are told a repair cannot be completed quickly due to a lack of parts, requiring the owner to wait until they have been ordered before the service or repair can be completed. The cost is often not clear and can be a shock to the heater owner when they receive their invoice.
When Does a Heater Require Servicing?
There are a variety of reason you might need to have your campervan, motorhome or boat heater serviced, with the main objective to ensure that you are not left in the cold. What are the symptoms that your heater could require servicing?
People generally do not have their heaters serviced until after the unit has developed a fault. This can lead to added repair expense, inconvenience and even total heater failure. It is always better to prevent problems through regular servicing rather than wait for a problem to occur.
The main symptoms that a marine heater requires immediate servicing include.
- Heater smoking and does not start with a clean burn
- Heater struggles to start and can sometimes take more than one automated restart attempt
- Heater locks out requiring multiple hard resets
- An obvious fault or physical damage to the heater unit
How often should a heater be serviced?
Apart from when any of the above symptoms is present the recommended service schedule depends on how often the heater is in operation, for instance if the heater is being used at periodic intervals such as holiday periods the recommended service period is every two years.
If the heater is being used daily on a liveaboard vessel, motorhome, or campervan the recommended period is annually or every 2000 hours running time.
