blowing cold air

@ April 8, 2009 10:27 PM in No Heat From Gas Furnace

What does it mean if you turn the fan out and it blows cold air?

high efficiecy

@ April 8, 2009 9:43 PM in Burnham V8 vs V8H

You must have a WB with a Riello Ron? Don't let the triple pass boys hear that you can get those numbers with pin boilers. I know you can, but we always did it that way. peace

plugged air filter?

@ April 8, 2009 9:40 PM in No Heat From Gas Furnace

zone dampers?

Is that for real John?

@ April 8, 2009 9:25 PM in Burnham V8 vs V8H

I looked quickly, and read what was on the front page, and I must have missed it. That is rather high efficiency for a top flue pin. Time will indeed tell. peace

pulling a vacuum

@ April 8, 2009 9:21 PM in So What's the trick?

I've done this on oil tanks many many times, don't know if it would work on an opening that big, and not on the bottom. peace


@ April 8, 2009 6:39 PM in Burnham V8 vs V8H

Maybe one leaks and the other one doesn't? Just kidding. I see no difference. I think it's just a model change thing. They are identical from what I see. peace

zone valve

@ April 8, 2009 6:30 PM in Looking for zone valve.

John, sounds like the base/ball assembly is frozen in that position? Does this have glycol in the system? It can happen over time with water, but more the so with antifreeze. They are repairable. Best to have them fixed by someone who can. You don't need to replace the whole valve. It will cost less to repair. The actuator motor can also stick and not allow the valve to close. The easiest valve to troubleshoot and repair. Good luck. peace

fuel pump

@ April 7, 2009 8:01 PM in fuel pump question

The hub fits tightly into the housing. Carefully pry both ears of the pump. She should come right out. peace

fuel pump

@ April 7, 2009 7:13 PM in fuel pump question

Why do you need to remove the fuel pump? If you are not a tech, best to have one do it for you. there is a fuel supply line, and possibly a return fuel line, and could get messy if you don't know what to do. Not being stand offish, but you could get yourself in over your head, and we don't like to give you the direction to do so. peace

zone valve

@ April 7, 2009 5:32 PM in Looking for zone valve.

The 2 top wires, furthest from the piping, are the end switch wires on those. Try to disconnect 1 of the wires. If the pump drops out, than the end switch is no good. Replace the power head. Is this a 1 zone house? If it is, and disconnecting the wire doesn't do it, then the circ relay could be welded, if not, than you have another zone valve causing this. keep us posted. peace

still got them, and use them at times. Made to last. peace


@ April 2, 2009 7:02 PM in Replacement Combustion Chamber

Jim, it will hold up just fine. Flue collectors, boiler plates have been sealed this way for years. peace


@ April 2, 2009 6:04 PM in NFPA & Boiler rooms

Whole different ball game-public building-place of assembly. As stated, check with local fire/building departments. peace


@ April 2, 2009 6:01 PM in the board is getting wiggy

Sounds like you have the Conficker virus? try tossin your cookies first, this might help. peace

hellp needed

It sounds like his boss has thrown him to the wolves Ken. He said he was no help to him? Not a good thing. Newbie, good luck, and keep us posted. peace

chamber kits

@ April 2, 2009 5:52 PM in Replacement Combustion Chamber

The guys know it. High temp silicone, rope, or furnace cement. The putty just drys up and falls out anyway. peace


@ April 1, 2009 8:09 PM in Test Gauges

Sid Harvey. Aint much you can't get from them


@ April 1, 2009 8:06 PM in check out these pics

Looks like you had a full April Fools Day Bill. peace


@ April 1, 2009 8:04 PM in Life Expectancy of boilers - oil vs. gas

I agree Steam

Carlin ez-1

@ April 1, 2009 7:58 PM in carlin ez-1

newbie, is this on OEM? Find the specs on heating unit and set up as recommended to start off with. This will get you started off with air, nozzle, and head/gun adjustments. Test equipment to fine tune from there. What is the Carlin on? If you can't find the lit, myself, or some of the oil pros here can give you some direction. Each OEM recommends anywhere from 100 to 150 PSI on the fuel pump pressure. Depending on age of the EZ-1, you need the right plate for the nozzle size. Also excessive air adjustment can be a problem. Is the unit clean, draft negative? Need more to go on. peace

Tommy, don't tell me you're feeding yours beer too lol. peace

trace smoke

@ March 29, 2009 4:29 PM in W/M Gold Oil \"Burping\"

I gotta agree Tommy. This burner is not running properly, so it is generating atleast s trace smoke i'll bet. Not acceptable with new equipment. The only unit I run 90 degree nozzles in are mobile home furnces. The 90 degree is not floating in this case only because lack of adequate pump pressue. Wider the spray angle, less likely to float. I still say 80 with 140. peace
