@ January 22, 2013 6:01 PM in Munchkin boiler 925 controlOne swirl plate and when I check the flue piping it look like the stubbed both air in and flue out and used a saw-zal to cut them both off same length. Also that plate is pricey.
@ January 22, 2013 3:04 PM in southern pride smokerHave Tim. I used to do a lot of work for Red Hot & Blue. Not tring to give offense or anything but the issue is the pilot. Also those smokers are design to have the gases blown around inside the oven and I'm not sure how that would effect combustion readings.
@ January 22, 2013 9:26 AM in Pigtail & vaporstatTo me. I shake like a leaf when I pull them out of boilers to clean for fear of breaking them.
@ January 22, 2013 9:23 AM in Banging pipesSo you have two circs, one for the boiler and another for the heating loop.
@ January 21, 2013 8:56 PM in southern pride smokerYou would do a combustion test when you have a gas and wood fire?
@ January 21, 2013 7:24 PM in Banging pipesBypass on the system? How is the boiler piped? Primary secondary? What happens if only one zone calls.
@ January 21, 2013 12:32 AM in southern pride smokerAlso want to blow some nitrogen through the pilot tube to clean that out. Then your done.
@ January 21, 2013 12:30 AM in southern pride smokerCombustion test. Clean the flame sensor and your done.
@ January 21, 2013 12:27 AM in Munchkin boiler 925 controlIs deteriorating then you are recirculation flue gas. You have to ex-ten your outlet pipe further past your air in.
@ January 21, 2013 12:23 AM in My heating is not working possible Low water cut off deviceMean "You can see the flame on " But nothing fires up? Is there a flame or isn't there?
@ January 21, 2013 12:08 AM in Radiant hot water heatingDays? That's a long time for a house to cool off. Need more info. But would start with heat anticipater settings.
@ January 18, 2013 10:11 PM in New Gas valve receiving 24v wont open110v HSI and 24v gas valve. Are you or the service tech checking voltage at the valve with the wires connected? Or are you checking for 24v with the wires off the valve. If you check with the wires off and have the 24 connect the wires to the valve and see if the voltage goes away. If it does you have a lose connection or bad gas valve relay on your board. Strip a bare spot on the wires to the valve if you have to.
@ January 18, 2013 8:09 PM in Furnace startup issue - video includedSimilar furnace and I had a similar issue that turn out to be a bad burner.
@ January 18, 2013 8:04 PM in looking for outside of the box ideas onlyI used this on a 1 1/2 90* ell on the return of a boiler that was dripping. It looks like a knee wrap. You soak it in warm water then wrap the pipe and work the stuff and if forms a epoxy hard seal. Of course you won't be taking apart the union again with out a sawsall.
@ January 18, 2013 7:48 PM in Short Cycling HelpThe indoor blower or the gas burners or both.
