Question about Heating & Cooling

Open Question

I REPLACED MY HONEYWELL AQUASTAT THIS PAST MARCH. THE BOILER RUNS OK BUT THE TWO CIRCULATORS DO NOT RUN WITH A CALL FOR HEAT. COULD THE AQUASTAT HAVE GONE BAD ALREADY AND IF SO HOW LONG ARE THEY GUARANTEED FOR?

SOURCE: I want to adjust the

To enter the adjustment mode, press the UP, DOWN, and I buttons simultaneously for three seconds. Press the I button until the feature requiring adjustment is displayed:
• HL —High Limit.
• LL— Low Limit.
• Ldf —Low Limit differential.
Then press the UP and/or DOWN buttons to move the set point to
the desired value. After 60 seconds without any button inputs, the
control will automatically return to the READ mode.

(copied from honeywell's instructions)

to clarify the differential is cut in minus the cut out.
Hope i can be some help to you.

SOURCE: I have installed honeywell aquastat

If aquastat wirings are ok, and control module had been set up properly, the the furnace should start.
Check if bypassing the control the furnace starts, if it starts then check aquastat wirings.
If it depends on the furnace, check the valve, the safety sensor and the ignitor.
Here is the guide to set up the Aquastat control:

SOURCE: what would the correct high and lo and diff

I would say high if you need cooling. If the tempature is cool enough for you then set it to low.If you are hot and need more cooling then high.

SOURCE: I had a Honeywell Thermostat

Is this a new hvac system? A new furnace can work differently than your old one. Does it shut off after a minute or two or continue to run? If it continues to run then call that professional back and let him fix it. If it shuts down after a minute or two then it is a feature of the new thermostat to squeeze all of the cool it can from the a/c coil and ductwork.Some of them have settings that you can adjust for blower delay on and off, read the manual that came with the t-stat and see if it does.

Why when my siemens RDJ10RF room thermostat has the arrow asking for heat does my boiler not fire up so i don't get any heating.The water heats up ok though?


You have a triple aquastat that maintains a temperature level needed to provide hot water. but you are not getting the thermostat to operate the central heating. The thermostat is a switch that operates by temperature. if you have tried raising the thermostat and the system did nor kick in try jumping the thermostat terminals in the aquastat . if that works then the problem is either in the thermostat or the wiring to the thermostat. also with a electrical tester." while the thermostat is jumped" test the c1 and c2 terminals to see if power is going to the circulator. If not then you need a new aquastat. if you have power and the pump is not moving water replace it.

Wickes 102 combi boiler constantly loosing water pressure


It sounds like your thermostat could be the problem. Have you noticed the boiler cutting off at all, or does it run continuously until it goes out on low water?

You stated, "when boiler is on", so I am wondering how you get the boiler on. If your boiler is controlled by a thermostat, you need to check it for a cold draft possibly from behind the thermostat in the wall where the wires come through. The thermostat should never be on an outside wall. The thermostat could be defective.

An aquastat can also control your boiler. If you have an aquastat, check the setting, typically 175 - 180 degrees. You should also have a "high limit" which should be set at 210 - 220. Some people run that high side limit higher; not a good idea - defeats the purpose. If the aquastat is set too high, the boiler will operate too hot and the problem you have will occur.

"pressure rises and pressure relief valve opens" This could mean that your pressure switch is prematurely venting. Check boiler temperature to see exactly at what temperature the T&P valve purges. If it blows off below the high side setting, either adjust or replace. The T&P valves are usually not adjustable. That blow off temperature is stamped on the head of the valve. So, if it discharges too soon, replace it.

Have you actually seen evidence thgat the T&P valve is opening? You may have a bad bladder in your expansion tank and your system may have air in it. Your boiler should have 12 psi when cold and 20 - 22 psi when operating. Check your boiler pressure guage.

"
this eventually drops below the minimum operating pressure" Technically, there is set point for a NO MINIMUM OPERATING PRESSURE. That is a function of the amount of water in the boiler. If the T&P is blowing off, it will vent water from the boiler and the boiler pressure will go down. There is a minimum operating TEMPERATURE.

Your boiler could be low on water. You will have to manually fill the boiler. Be careful of thermal shock to the boiler. Feel the piping, and fill only when the circulator is running. Make sure the water is not going directly into the boiler. The supply water should go into the circulating supply side which feeds the radiators, radiant floor, or base board circuits.

All this will adversely affect your hot water. The heat exchanger for the potable hot water may have scale build up in it. Using the hot water keeps the boiler running, and a scaled heat exchanger will give you cooler hot water and the boiler keeps running. If this is a problem, you will need to replace the heat exchanger. A better idea is to not use the boiler for your domestic hot water. Why run the boiler in the summer?

Does the boiler thermostat control the heat of the radiators as well as the hot water temperature? Does the thermostat control the water temperature and the pump - as our pump seems to be on all the...


There should be a control called an aquastat that regulates the temperature of the boiler. The thermostat will turn on the circulator to start the flow of water through the radiators. If the water coming back from the radiators is very cold, a control will shut off the circulator until the boiler can come up to a predetermined temperature then start the flow of water again. If you have a tankless coil for domestic hot water, you now have a triple aquastat that maintains the temperature for domestic as well as the boiler temp. So yes the boiler thermostat (aquastat) does control the heat of the radiators and domestic hot water. No the pump is regulated by your house thermostat. You should take an amp draw on the boiler and componants to find out what is drawing more electricity than it should and popping your fuse.

Looking for simple wiring diagram to wire ******** aquastat


What are you fanning??? the fire?

Do you have a circulator that circulates when the water is up? Many controls have a AUX connection ... wire the AUX to your fan --- alaternatively, wire directly fron your circulator connection to the fan.

I hope I understood your question ...

Let me know what happens.

No heat!


Ger, do you get your hot water off the same boiler and it that working alright? How many zones and are they controled by zone valves (little boxes mounted on the pipes) or circulators (small pumps)?

Boiling water sounds can indicate hard water deposits in the boiler or that your aquastat is set too high allowing the water to heat up higher than it should. Check your boiler guage and let me know what temperature you are recording. Get back to me with the answers to my questions, we'll figure it out.
