    Buderus 2107 BLR SENSOR ERROR

    Hello All, I have searched and couldn't find any posts regarding this. I have a 10 year old Lagano G115 oil fired burner with 2107 Logamatic control. I checked the system today (which is producing heat fine) and noticed the BLR SENSOR ERROR message and no boiler temp showing on the display. I read the book and it said to check the connections and replace the sensor if necessary. I cannot however find documentation that shows me where this sensor is and where to purchase a new one. I don't want to call in a tech as I can replace pretty much anything. Can someone point me in the direction as to where to buy this and how to check it? Also, what is the harm in the system running without that sensor talking to the Logamatic? Is it just not efficient?

    Thank you all so much,
    Kyle

    Kyle, don't take this the wrong way

    You have a decently expensive boiler. If you can't search/reconstruct your way to the answer you're seeking, perhaps you should protect your investment by paying for someone qualified to work on it.

    none taken

    Just an update. I contacted Buderus who agreed that they don't have literature on the part I am seeking. No part numbers and the only place to order would be through a HVAC or repair company. I then contacted an authorized Buderus servicer who said they would sell me the part. I did locate the part in question at the top of the unit and traced back where it plugs into the Logamatic. Should be straight forward enough. I have replaced relays when they have gone bad and was able to diagnose that problem with ease and a 3 dollar part. I was hoping someone would have had some advise other than call a tech. I have rebuilt cars, have a masters degree in industrial design, and am an experienced DIY'er if you can call it that and work as a design engineer. I am not the average home owner. I have had 3 service companies in 6 years and no one has shown me confidence in the Buderus unit. I personally don't trust I would have a tech out that would know what they were doing. Let alone have the part with them. I know it would cost me two service calls all for a part that will take 10 minutes to replace. I am the one that has to tell them to check my anode on my indirect tank in order to not void the warranty. I then have to loan them my multimeter cause they don't carry one. (this has happened with all three) I now just check it myself and note the number on the ticket. If anyone has any advise other than call a tech I would be interested in hearing it.

    Sorry for the rant. I was just hoping for a forum with better support. Thank you,

    Sure they have literature

    They have service literature on the control you're trying to service, which includes the resistance curve for the sensor that would tell you what type of thermistor it is and locate the terminals to which it is wired and trace the leads to the part. If I hadn't been able to find it near the top of google search results I would not have written what I wrote. My default answer is definitely NOT "get a tech" but it seemed like good advice in your case.

    So ok, now you have the part and certainly the replacement of the part is comfortably within your skill set. What advice do you need?

    Sensor

    The boiler sensor is the same sensor used on the an indirect hot water heater that came with the control, If it was not used it might be laying around .. Sometimes the stainless well leaks destroying the boiler sensor if you notice corrosion change the well too...
    I have enough experience to know , that I dont know it all
