Photocell Assembly - 70-016-1000
Repair Difficulty:
Hard
Time Spent Repairing:
30-60 minutes
Tools Used:
Screwdriver, soldering iron, 2.5K resistor
Failed to continue operation after 1-2 minutes
Heat Stream 70T 70K Btu;
Removed covers, replaced CDS photocell, on-line information shows replacement part # -1000 was a replacement, however, was incorrect connector; CDS cell leads soldered / spliced to original connector; problem unresolved, same as with original cell;
Discovered CDS ranging resistor R12 had changed value providing a marginal out of range voltage to the RISC processor input while operating. Padded 5V B+ resistor by adding 2.5K ohms; operational voltage to RISC input lowered from 2.4V average to 2.1V average while flame active; system now operates correctly. System checked for correct shutdown when optical path blocked simulating flame out condition.

Not running properly, low pressure, cracked air line and deteriorated fuel line
Disassembly of the unit is pretty straightforward. Just seven sheet metal screws if I remember correctly. The only problem I encountered was that the nipple on the new fuel filter was the larger diameter than the old filter. The new fuel line purchased also has a much larger diameter to accommodate this. Unfortunately the unit was getting too much fuel after I completed the repair. It was not running properly. I went to the local hardware store and purchase the smaller diameter new fuel line and was able to stretch this over the larger nipple of the new filter. It runs perfectly again.
