The Melbourne Tram Museum showcases the history of trams and the contribution they've made to life in Melbourne since 1885 in the most authentic tramway museum in Australia, the heritage-listed Hawthorn Tram Depot.

The depot was built for the Hawthorn Tramways Trust and opened in 1916 as a three storey building housing offices, amenities, a four road tram shed and the electrical substation that provided traction power to the tramway.

The museum is home to 21 trams ranging from a Melbourne Tramway & Omnibus Company cable tram and trailer to a Yarra Trams Z1 Class #81 which entered service in 1978 and was finally retired in 2006.

Brivis Heater - Error Code #69

My Brivis HX23 Heater broke down this week.  H01 Code #69.  This code was not even listed in the User Manual!  Searching around the web and here is what I found: Secret Reset: This is not in the User Manual.  On the networker controller press FUNCTION > 1 > 4 keys and the screen will go blank and come back on after 30 seconds, this has rebooted the main PCB and reset the fault code. Use this with caution as too much gas build up could cause an explosion. Use it only after the unit has enough time to air out the gas build up. What is Code #69 or any other unpublished codes?  The best way to find out is to open up the heater unit.   There is a little LCD on the PCB showing what error exactly is. (Note: Opening up the unit may void your warranty.)
