Guest Posted February 28, 2010 Share Posted February 28, 2010 Hi all, Our D4 is playing up and we need some advice as the problem seems a little unusual. On friday we stayed on the boat and the heater fired up fine and was on for a good few hours at full belt (we always run her like that due to the problems we had with the D2 on jupes). All was fine, but on saturday evening we went out for a fab meal with Jonathan Tammy and rebecca (Mariotech) and we put the heating on to keep the dog warm whilst we were out. On return we found that the unit was just blowing cold air and had not fired up. We tried a couple of times to get it going but our experience of the D2 is that if there is a problem encountered during thr firing up sequence you only get two chances to retry before the unit locks itself down, thus requiring an expensive engineer to come out , fix the prob and reset the ICU. Now...here is the thing....unlike our faulty D2 on jupes that would get all the way through the fire up sequnce (billowing smoke and all), it appears that the D4 was only getting to the first stage of the sequence (cooler fan only). And just wouldnt go to the next stage (which I presume is fuel related.) And here is the even more odd thing...given that after a number of false starts which I assume disabled the unit, this morning we fired up again and it did indeed go through the whole cycle to the point of blowing out hot air for about a minute before shutting itself down. A subsequent restart put it back to the fan only first stage like last night. Any ideas on what is wrong and where I might go to get it sorted without someone like Panks saying we need a new ICU (which costs more than a second hand D4 complete unit on e bay!!!
