Routine service parts and kits - Routine Service Parts      Scroll down page for filter and nozzle packages.  You should have the fiber gasket on hand in case you take the combustion chamber out.  HDE-700-205

 

Routine service note:  The Aqua-Hot service directions clearly state that the combustion chamber should be removed each time unit is serviced.  Most of the service people that I know remove the air swirler as shown in photo below.  They Inspect the inside of combustion chamber with flashlight.  If there is very minimal carbon built up (which they find in most instances), they do not remove the combustion chamber.

Common Problems

 

   None that I know of.
